Copenhagen-based free improv/noise trio
The Danish-Catalan trio THE MOMS delivers an uncompromising bid on how modern improvised music in the borderland between free improv and noise can sound. With creative homemade approaches to the instruments, the trio creates an idiosyncratic music that combines the prepared double bass and saxophone with guitar and home-built effect pedals.
In 2020, they released their debut album ‘Kalipedia’ – a nearly 40-minute-long harsh chunk of music that has received excited reviews from a wide range of international music critics.
“The Moms do intend to grab you and offer a twisted but surprisingly meditative experience, pushing your mind through a dark but eventful void. This intense journey guarantees that you may explore new and sometimes even torturing colors and shades within the ever-expanding sonic universes of the saxes, double bass and guitar.”– Eyal Hareuveni // salt-peanuts.eu

Kalipedia is the debut release of Copenhagen-based textural noise/free improv trio The Moms. Manipualating conventional instruments in self-invented unorthodox ways the trio creates an ever-changing music that grabs you and invites you in. It’s 39 minutes and 34 seconds of music without breaks and it’s ripply! There’s no soothing melodies or calming new-age harmonies, yet it can be a meditative experience if you accept the push and let your mind slip through the void.
Release June 9th 2020
