VOLCANO THE BEAR (UK)
Over the past 10 years, Volcano The Bear have created a unique music that is without bounds, and their live performances are bizarre spectacles to behold. Drawing on a huge range of musical influences, including indigenous folk music, free jazz and musique concrete, Volcano The Bear produce music that is wholly their own, moving freely between improvisation and composition, and between instruments, voices and objects. Their music is at times ritualistic, theatrical, beautiful and absurd, and in live performance allows anything to happen at any given time.

"No one sounds, has sounded or will ever sound quite like Volcano the Bear." (LosingToday)
"...Its the trios originality that is most striking, and ultimately they sound like nothing else ... An inspired use of sonic material" (The Wire, Classic Erasmus Fusion review)
