Release 10.02.2023

"Music For Not-So-Feral Hogs". Pieces about the story of the wild pigs roaming Fukushima after the nuclear disaster, packaged as a dystopian children's fairy tale, embedded in a sound aesthetic between Peter Brötzmann, Jonathan Harvey and Iannis Xenakis.
In addition to the title track of the record, the pieces are thematically dedicated to radioactivity, radio-activity and outer space. With an almost insane number of pop-cultural references and played in a line-up between microtonal electronic instruments and an indeterminate number of flutes and megaphones, the Victor Gelling Nonett locates itself somewhere between contemporary chamber ensembles, Düsseldorf electro-pop bands and free jazz.
