SOTU & CONCERTZENDER PresentS:
ASTMA = Alexei Borisov & Olga Nosova (ru) + Giulio Aldinnuci (it), Some Truths (uk)
HOSTED BY: AKKII ATTII & MARTIJN COMES
ASTMA is Olga Nosova (drummer and vocalist mostly known for her work with Moscow noise-core band Motherfathers) and Russian industrial/electronic scene pioneer Alexei Borisov. The collaborative project was formed in April 2009 in Moscow. Paying homage to both experimental tradition of Alexei’s countless musical reincarnations and Olga’s instrumental noise experience, the duo embrace elements of weird free-form spoken word psychedelia, live electronics, noise, heavy acid, electroacoustic, d’n’b and far too many different types of acoustic torture to even bother mentioning them. The music is highly improvised, so naturally Borisov / Nosova collaborate with various musicians, video-artists and poets from different countries both live and in studio: Anton Nikkila (Finland), Dave Phillips (Switzerland), Matthieu Werchowski (France), Dora Bleu (Canada), Thomas Buckner (USA), Tom Smith (USA), Jandek (USA), Ilya Belorukov (Russia), Sergei Letov (Russia), Nikita Tsymbal (Russia) to name just a few. Borisov/Nosova duo is touring extensively and in 2009-2010 performed in Russia, Turkey, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Netherlands, France, Israel, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belorussia etc.
