Konsert söndagen den 23 augusti på Molekyl2 (Hörnlokalen) med RANDOM BUFFS reunited. Kl 16-18 



Random Buffs ger en konsert för första gången på 14 år!

Martin Klapper - leksaker, elektriska och akustiska objekt
Herman Müntzing - flexichord, failtronics, röst

Filmaren och musikern Martin Klapper ställer ut sina unika handgjorda vinylomslag på Molekyl under augusti. I samband med detta passar Random Buffs på att återuppstå efter ca 14 år.

Duon föddes för snart 20 år sedan och kom snabbt att utökas med amerikanske free-form-country-avantgarde-folkpsych-nestorn Eugene Chadbourne. Under ett antal hektiska år genomförde trion under namnet "ChadKlappMuntz" hisnande och än i dag omtalade konserter, inom Sverige och ute i Europa.

Random Buffs har genom åren även arbetat med musiker som Martin Kuchen, Phil Minton och Thurston Moore.

I Random Buffs blandas Klappers akustiska, elektriska och mekaniska leksaker och objekt, som uppmickade fotbollspel, madrasspumpar och div material som glas, sten, gummi, metall, plast... med Müntzings hembyggda strängkonstruktion "flexichord" och en anhopning av mer eller mindre fungerande lo-fi manicker sammankopplade på ett diaboliskt och slumpartat vis. Anhopningen går under namnet "failtronics".

Klapper och Müntzing har spelat tillsammans vid ett antal tillfällen men detta är deras första konsert som duo på 14 år!

On the opening:

RANDOM BUFFS reunited.

The RANDOM BUFFS Duo consisting of Herman Müntzing (S)-Flexichord, electronics, objects and Martin Klapper (CZ)-amplified objects, toys will reunite for this special occasion after 14 years!
