Pumsti Presents: JUNKO & MICHEL HENRITZI/ KUSUM NORMOYLE/ GERRITT
Junko Hiroshige (b.1961) is the grand dame of japanese shriek and the
most unique voice of Noise. She joined HIJOKAIDAN in 1982 and performs
solo voice actions since 2002. Michel Henritzi (b.1959) is a french
improviser. He was involved with different industrial & rock bands
since the late 70’s, before joining the collective NOX. Since 1988 he
is working with the improvisation/noise project Dustbreeders.
Kusum Normoyle (b. 1984) is an artist and musician working in the area
of extended vocal techniques and noise for both performance and
installation. Core to Kusum’s practice is the idea of intervention,
displacing normal expectations of female body and voice. In
performance these incursions are brief, extreme and physical. The
female scream takes a much heavier tone; more like metal than
hysteria, dragging the audience into a harder, faster display of
screaming, amplification and feedback.
Gerritt Wittmer is a sound and performance artist based in Oakland,
California. His work often articulates abstract narratives through
vocal expression, body performance, and intense theatrical lighting.
He has performed and recorded as Gerritt, Ginnungagap (with Stephen
O’Malley and Tim Wyskida), and Deathroes (with Sixes), and directs the
publishing house Misanthropic Agenda.
