moha! - Norwegianism
Guitar hero and all-round Nordic noisenik Anders Hana pairs up with drummer Morton Olsen for another round of extreme improv for the Rune Gramofon imprint. Key to MoHa!'s distinctive sound is that the pair aren't merely an instrumental duo, but somehow they find time to operate their Supercollider software alongside a veritable menagerie of customised electronics while they're at it. It's impressive, head-scratching listening. Fans of the debut MoHa! release, Raus Aus Stavanger will notice there's a great deal more texture in this release than its relentlessly vicious predecessor. The ferocious dynamics that made them sound so vital and unhinged in the first place remain, but in this instance they're tempered by a noticeably developed sense of light and shade that sees the pair tackling a few quieter, more explicitly electronic moments. 'Gay One' and 'Gay Two' bring that kind of texture to the table with Hana putting his axe to one side in order to stir up some some synth and drum machine disruption. It's soon back to business as usual with the blistering, stop-start grindcore of 'Home Two'. It's hard to pick out highlights from this set given that it genuinely feels like a single recording session chopped up into manageable bite-sized pieces, but the closing couplet, 'Ibiza One' and 'Ibiza Two' are the two longest, most fully developed pieces here, and make for an intense 12 minutes of all-consuming noise. Brilliant.
