Throughout the month of May Mikkel Hess and his fellow musicians of Hess Is More Live have been working in the studio at the Clocktower Gallery to develop and arrange new material. This process has yielded a repetoire investigating relations among Folk, Disco, Pop, Afro, Punk, Jazz and more... This evening the ensemble will play an intimate "work in progress" concert in the upper gallery - live testing this new music for the very first time. A selection of photographs by "stupidface" will be on view in the studio along with other elements from the process.

Pavel Kogan - Guitar
Rasmus Bille Bahncke - SH101
Chris Berry - Electric Drums
