Egil Kalman (Bass and Synths)

Miman consists of fiddler Hans Kjorstad, clarinetist Andreas Røysum and bassist and synthetist Egil Kalman; three unavoidable names from the Scandinavian scenes for exploratory musics.

Semay Wu

Semay Wu (Cello and Electronics)

Having lived and worked in numerous musical directions for many years, Semay Wu’s cello still remains at her side: from Merseyside, to Manchester, to The Netherlands, and now to Central Scotland. Always trying to push age-old boundaries of how the instrument is viewed and heard, gestural disciplines are explored with electronics, objects, instruments and mixed media; seeking relationships within improvisational frameworks.

Cellist-improviser, composer and artist Semay Wu’s live performances focus on complexity by encouraging spontaneity within dynamic scenarios. Building on the relationships that emerge, new collaborations unfold and become, themselves, players.
