Icarus Live Session #53 is happy to re-welcome Karen Willems, here in a trio with Barkin Engin (TR) and Nils Gröndahl (DK). They tour together to promote the new Inwolves record (Color In The Zoo), out now on Vynilla Vinyl. For Icarus, they played a complete improvised set. Willems’ quirkiness has become her trademark in the meantime, and it is probably also one of the main reasons why she turns up in such different surroundings (Jan Swerts, Aidan Baker, Jean D.L…). Barkin Engin has been also working as a sound engineer/designer for music and film productions since 2005 besides contributing to a variety of bands / projects such as Replikas, Reverie Falls On All, and Yerçekimi as a composer and performer for the last 20 years. Nils Gröndahl is a Danish violionist and noisemaker. In front of the audience he builds up walls of sound and noise with his amplifiers. He is trapped in his endless repetition and the variations of the repetitions.
