LOOK out now!
A year has passed since ICH BIN N!NTENDO's debut release with Mats Gustafsson in october 2012, and the worries of being sued by the Nintendo Corporation has settled. LOOK is about dirty old computers, sreens flashing, music so compact it becomes visual. It is about context and the connection between random elements. It is also a mockery of conceptual art and banal music. Ironically, it might end up becoming just that
"There's something so profound and liberating in the barbaric shrieks and moaning, merged with the piercing guitars and pounding drums and bass, which brings to a certain, even if demented, form of serenity, as if through shock treatment."
ICH BIN N!NTENDO & MATS GUSTAFSSON
We trooped up with Mats and recorded a live concert of heay noise punk. Released october 2012 on VAFONGOOLRecords.
"Young Norwegian power trio Ich bin N!ntendo is a sonic heir to European power outfits such as the Swedish-Norwegian trio The Thing, Italian punk-jazz trio Zu, and Dutch quartet The Ex. Its affinity with Swedish sax titan Mats Gustafsson of The Thing, who guests on this live recording, is obvious. Both enjoy exploring and pushing the physical aspects of their instruments into utter intensity. ... Not for the faint of heart." - All About Jazz
