Joachim Nordwall

Joachim Nordwall is deeply interested in the power of sound, and how
sound can create certain states of mind - but also the other way
around; how certain states of mind can create sound. Since his teens
in the late 80’s, growing up in the remote, crude south east Sweden,
he has experimented with something he prefers to call ‘Psychic
Broadcasting’ rather than composition, at first in the still almost
active analogue synth drone duo Alvars Orkester [‘Interference’ - Ash
International # Ash 6.9, 2006]. Nordwall went on to play in various
experimental music projects, spent time in Paris and London. Back in
Sweden he formed iDEAL Recordings in 1998 and joined the sweaty avant
punk rock group Kid Commando the year after, touring like mad,
eventually hitting rock bottom in 2005. After the death of KC, he
formed the ritual rock/drone band The Skull Defekts which has kept him
busy ever since (recently releasing records on Chicago-based Thrill
Jockey Records). In 2006 his first solo album was released under his
‘The Idealist’ moniker, entitled ‘I Am The Fire’. A few years in the
making, the album offered was a deep study of Nordwall’s interior
life, during a time when everything was pitch black inside. Today,
Joachim Nordwall is very active curating his iDEAL label and
organisation for festivals, concert series and sound art exhibitions.
Nordwall is a man that lives and breathes sound.


The Sons of God

The Sons of God´s field of activity can be described as an
investigation of a mental airspace, undertaken with the aid of
unconventional tools. The aural aspect is important, but equal care is
devoted to the visual.

The Sons of God is often augmented with supplementary performers who
then also influence the ideas and their expression.

The Sons of God put themselves at the disposal of civil defence and
strive to imbue fortitude and courage.
