Norwegian producer/composer/performer. The musical spheres Jan Bang work in revolve around such luminaries as David Sylvian, Jon Hassell and Dai Fujikura. From his work as successful pop producer in the 1990s his creative thrust and pioneering work in developing the concept of live remix - improvising with electronics alongside more conventional instruments and performers - has led today to him being constantly in-demand as producer and performer. In 2005 he launched, together with Erik Honore the internationally renowned Punkt Festival where Bang’s creative use of live sampling, his own musical instrument, works within the framework of overlapping concerts one being the original, the other the remix. The Punkt brand has gained a reputation amongst musicians as being artist friendly and always putting the musicians needs first. Punkt already traveled abroad to the UK, Germany, Paris and visited Tallinn in spring 2011. Bang’s recent recorded work includes the acclaimed CDs Died In The Wool by David Sylvian, Cartography by Arve Henriksen, Dream Logic by Eivind Aarset and Jon Hassell’s Last Night the Moon Came, the latter three on ECM. Jan Bang´s solo releases includes the albums…and Poppies from Kandahar (Samadhisound) and the new release Narrative from the Subtropics (Jazzland). Read more on Last.fm.
