The Thing / Yan Jun

Syncretism returns for its first show in 2011 with an incredible line up of eclectic audiologists and fire music maestros!

The Thing from Sweden are one of the world’s most influential post-jazz units, featuring Mats Gustafsson (saxophones), Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (double bass), and Paal Nilssen-Love (drums). Their sound merges Jazz, post-rock and fire music into a blazing and unexpected sonic exploration, rich in harmony and dynamics. With numerous collaborations alongside the likes of Sonic Youth and Otomo Yoshihide amongst others, The Thing are a truly unique and potent musical force!

Joining them from China is acclaimed sound artist, author and poet Yan Jun. One of the key figures creating exploratory music in China, Yan Jun’s work of the past decade places him at the very heart of China’s burgeoning sound art scene.
