“When Note Productions first approached and asked me to handpick some of my favourite musicians to play in duo with it didn’t take long to accept. It is the stuff of dreams to be in such a position. Duos are special: the balance between the two musicians, the clarity of hearing each performer, the nimbleness of response all excite me.”


Seán Mac Erlaine

Seán Mac Erlaine

Seán Mac Erlaine is a Dublin-based woodwind instrumentalist, composer and music producer, recognised as one of Ireland's most forward-thinking creative musicians. Seán's works intersects folk, free improvisation, jazz and traditional music. He also collaborates with a range of non-musical artists particularly in theatre and radio.

Seán maintains a busy performance schedule in Ireland and internationally working with a hugely diverse range of musicians and artists reflecting his own versatility and interest in cross- platform work. He holds a practice-based PhD centered on solo performance with live electronics. Fascinated by performance and movement, he is also a qualified, practicing teacher of Alexander Technique in Dublin.

Jan Bang

The musical spheres Jan Bang works in revolve around such luminaries as Jon Hassell, David Sylvian, Brian Eno, Sidsel Endresen, Nils Petter Molvær and Arve Henriksen. 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 to him being constantly in-demand as a producer and performer today. In 2005 he launched, together with Erik Honoré, the internationally renowned Punkt Festival, where Bang's 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 already traveled abroad to the UK, Germany and has plans to visit the United States.

Bang was born in Denver and grew up in Kristiansand, nurtured by the legacy of his father's vast record collection, his mother's piano playing and the sounds of swallows in the family garden. The early meeting between Bang, Erik Honoré, and a range of music technology, awoke a desire to start a band and a thirst to develop something unique. The Tromsø electronic scene - and some musical collisions with other soon-to-be famous musicians such as Bugge Wesseltoft and Nils Petter Molvær - set Bang on the road to his status as one of the most innovative and creative musicians working in Norway today.
