OF 2012 LINE UP/7
Anders Lauge Meldgaard is the real name of the man behind Frisk Frugt. He is coming out of the experimental music collective yoyooyoy based in Berlin and Copenhagen. With witch he in over a decade have been involved with numerous music and art projects. Under the alias Frisk Frugt he has released two albums; Guldtrompeten from 2006 and Dansktoppen møder Burkina Faso i det himmelblå rum hvor solen bor, suite from 2010. Frisk Frugt (eng. Fresh Fruit) operates in his own quirky musical universe, where the genre of traditional Danish folk song writing and poetry in an unpretentious way are spiced up with elements from experimental rock, improvisation, drone, noise, electronica, lo-fi, free jazz and African high-life guitar. Here, the music arises at the intersection between the programmed and the hand played, and between the naive and the complex - where the sonorous clouds of tones from home-built instruments, brutal guitarriffs, synthdreams and saxophone improvisations are mixed together in a colourful cocktail, full of dizzy and dazed energy and containing flavours from all over the world.
