As a late addition to Newcastle’s AV festival Japan’s Ikue Mori (もりいくえ) teams up with Norway’s Maja S.K. Ratkie to become an avant-garde super team. The pair have only teamed briefly before and this is their very first tour together, this is a must for fans of experimental and noise music.

Ikue Mori was Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1953 but moved to New York City in 1977 after hearing the beginnings of punk rock music. Mori joined the band DNA as their drummer, the band focused on playing their instruments in a non-traditional manner and creating unique sounds into sparse and noisy music. After DNA’s break up Mori struck out as a solo artist playing drum machines designed to sound broken and became massively influencial in the New York experimental scene. Beyond her solo work she has collaborated with such artists as John Zorn, Zeena Parkins and Mike Patton.
