Slauson Malone 1 is a performance piece created by artist and musician Jasper Marsalis, exploring the possible intersections of popular music and performance art. His past releases include A Quiet Farewell (2016-2018) and Vergangenheitsbewältigung. Accompanied by cellist Nicky Wetherell.
Behind the moniker Living Ever After is Troels Damgaard-Christensen, a sonic guitarist, also known as a member and songwriter of the Danish noise rock band Collider, where he usually unfolds his musical worldbuilding.
Living Ever After is based on solo lo-fi recordings. The first label-released album “Parallel Extreme” came out in July 2021. The album is a collection of unreal and dreamy tunes, all bursting with ideas and restless joy. However, the musical approach seems condensed, and there’s a sense of patience and contemplation running through the project.
Live, the music is performed by an energetic quartet consisting of Troels Damgaard-Christensen, Johan Polder, Anton Sørensen and Rune Kielsgaard, together creating an intimate atmosphere through both complex songstructures and layers of improvisation.
