L'Ocelle Mare / Star Turbine
The noise duo of Sindre Bjerga (Bjerga/Iversen) and Claus Poulsen (Small Things On Sundays) were among the first artists to perform at Fuse Art Space in 2014, and we welcome them back wholeheartedly!
"Danish/Norwegian live improv superstars Star Turbine (Claus Poulsen of Small Things on Sunday, etc., and Sindre Bjerga, of Bjerga/Iversen, etc.) kick things off with some of their best electronic spellbinder spliff-traxxx. Textured, fractured aural expeditions, dadaist undercurrents" (A Beard of Snails)
