Omar Henri Martha Loreth Gebruers (Out Oi/ ØÛt ÖĮ) plays electric guitar and other instruments, and sometimes he plays music with other people: Red Rockers, Jelle Gebruers, Axel Gilain. Since 2020 he coined ten digital albums in less than one year – exploring noise, improvised music, heavy rock and songs – all illustrated with videos you can find on his own Out Oi wordpress website and youtube channel that holds over 150 selfmade clips. He is very likely working on 10 more albums while we speak and we are pretty sure you will witness the birth of one of them right here at Summer Bummer …
Belgian piano player, composer Jonas Cambien lives and works in Olso for more than ten years and is one of the most exciting musicians working on the verge of jazz, improvised and contemporary composed music. He already made his mark in the Oorstof concert series (AB Salon, 2018) and in the line up of Mars Williams’ An Ayler Xmas (Zuiderpershuis, 2017). At Summer Bummer he aligns Hanne De Backer (baritonsax), Andreas Wildhagen (drum), Signe Emmeluth (altsax), Sarah Jane Summers (viool), Christian Winther (gitaar), Magnus Nergaard (bas) and Michaela Antalova (drum) to complement his piano and acetone organ under the banner of Maca Conu. With his extremely playful but head strong approach balancing abstract improvisations and endearing melodies played by this excellent Norwegian, Belgian, Slovakian, Danish, Cambien ensemble he once again manages to create music that is as challenging as it is inviting.
Bass player Farida Amadou was responsible for two of the highlights at the Summer Bummer Festival in 2019. Those highlights – the set she and Steve Noble played with Thurston Moore as M.A.N. and with Peter Brötzmann as B.A.N. – will soon be released as a double lp on Dropa Disc. In an ongoing quest for new sounds and possibilities Amadou now teams up with media-archaeologist and analogue electronics fanatic Floris Vanhoof who surprised us earlier with an audio-visual spectacle in the company of Lieven Martens at Freakscene’s Summer Bummer in 2014. A recent residency at Les Ateliers Claus proved that Vanhoof’s analogue electronics blend extremely well with Amadou’s new endeavor into effects and electronics, so more than time to get this inspiring duo on the stage.
MOFAYA! is the sax and drums duo of John Dikeman and Aleksandar Škorić. They perform ecstatic, earth scorching free jazz which draws heavily on the traditions of African American free jazz as well as European free improvisation. On a regular base they expand the duo with guest players like Farida Amadou, Jamie Branch and Luke Stewart. For Summer Bummer Dikeman and Škorić play as MOF!AYA! (note the exclamation marks) for which they team up once again with Luke Stewart, bass player, composer and organizer who worked with prominent players like Edward Wilkerson, Jr., Ken Vandermark, Jim Baker and Avreeayl Ra and in bands like Blacks’ Myths, Heart of the Ghost, Six Six, Heroes Are Gang Leaders and Irreversible Entanglements.
Wether solo, with pop icon Neneh Cherry or with Fire! Orchestra counting 28 musicians, Swedish reed player Mats Gustafsson keeps spoiling us with pleasant surprises, THE END being one of the newest and nicest. Teaming up with phenomenal vocalist Sofia Jernberg (Fire! Orchestra), reed player Kjetil Møster (Ultralyd, Møster), guitar player Anders Hana (MoHa!, Jaga Jazzist) and drummer Børge Fjordheim (Cloroform) Gustafsson takes you from stunning and subtle to loud and ugly and back again in just a snap. The End was scheduled at the Summer Bummer Festival in 2020 and later that year for a concert in the Oorstof series at AB to celebrate the release of their superb second album Allt Är Intet for Rarenoise Ltd. Both events got cancelled for the obvious pandemic reasons, so here’s another attempt hoping third time’s a charm

Founded in 2006 Praed consists of two regular members: Raed Yassin playing keyboards, laptop, electronics and vocals; and Paed Conca on clarinet, electric bass and electronics. The musical oeuvre these two adventurous musicians concoct can be described as a mixture of Egyptian popular music Shaabi, free jazz, and electronics. Yassin and Conca also performed earlier under the name Praed Plus or Praed extended as a big band with artists like Axel Dörner, Johannes Bauer, Hans Koch and Stephane Rives and in 2018 they even premiered the Praed Orchestra – check the excellent Live in Sharjah release – with an extended line up consisting of some key players from the improvised music and alternatieve scene: Nadah el Shazly, Maurice Louca, Hans Koch, Martin Küchen, Christine Kazairan, Ute Wassermann, Alan Bishop, Radwan Moumneh, Sam Shalabi, Michael Zerang and Khaled Yassine. For Summer Bummer they go back to the core of 2 players brewing up a very special set indeed.
