Leslie Low + Yuen Chee Wai + John Hegre + Lasse Marhaug - Norwegian Seamen's Mission, 27 Nov 2010

norwegian seamen's mission

We climbed to the top of Pasir Panjang Hill, to a homely chapel building, overlooking the port and the sea, to listen to improvised music by John Hegre (Norway), Lasse Marhaug (Norway), Leslie Low, Yuen Chee Wai, as part of a series of gigs played in Norwegian Seamen's Missions all around the world. Strong coffee (no sugars), waffles, and jam. All four had begun the set together with an epic half hour jam, followed by two duets. I particularly enjoyed Leslie Low and Lasse Marhaug's duet - Leslie's melancholic guitar song underscored by crackling glitchsounds set off by Lasse Marhaug's giant hands crushing circuit boards together. Yuen Chee Wai and John Hegre's set was somehow not as cohesive, the elements seeming more disparate, and certain sort of sine waves, beeps and clicks seeming a bit out of place when played in a warm, organic church.
