Lasse Marhaug


Lasse Marhaug è stato fin dai primi anni novanta uno degli artisti più attivi della cosidetta Norwegian Noise Scene. Come musicista e compositore ha contribuito a più di duecento pubblicazioni collaborando con artisti di altissimo livello tra cui Government Alpha, Merzbow, Maja S.K. Ratkje,  Kevin Drumm, Helge Sten, Russell Haswell, Francisco López, Mats Gustafsson, Otomo Yoshihide, Sachiko, Carlos Giffoni, Kim Cascone, Paal Nilssen-Love, Sunn0))), Peter Rehberg, The Skull Defekts, Joachim Nordwall, Oren Ambarchi, John Wiese, C.Spencer Yeh, Pain Jerk, Merzbow, Jim O’ Rourke. Lavora con diversi tipi di strumentazione, da home-made electronics a computer, ed i suoi live sono sempre una sorpresa: grandi dinamiche e brutali sferzate di harshnoise si alternano a passaggi deep drone e distese di concretismi.

Lasse Marhaug has since the early 1990s been one of the most active artists in the Norwegian noise/experimental music scene. As a performer and composer he has contributed to well over 300 CD, vinyl and cassette releases over the years, as well as extensive touring and performing live on all continents of the world. In addition to his solo work, Marhaug has collaborated with several artists in the fields of noise, experimental, improv, jazz, rock and extreme metal, as well as working with music and sound for theatre, dance, installations, film and video. In the mid-90s Marhaug started TWR Tapes (still going) and Jazzassin Records (ended 2001). In the 2000s he started the record labels Pica Disk and Prisma Records. In 2011 he started his own print publishing called Marhaug Forlag. He has also been active as an organizer, promoter and producer. Marhaug was born in the northern regions above the arctic circle of Norway, but currently lives in Oslo.
