“The sheer power they generate from wood, metal, breath and muscle is stunning”  – BBC

The Thing by Ziga KoritnikArs Nova Workshop is proud to present the long-overdue return of the Scandinavian garage jazz power trio, The Thing. After forming in 1999 as a Don Cherry recording project, The Thing soon established themselves as one of the most important European jazz groups, playing a variety of compositions, including material by PJ Harvey, Albert Ayler, The White Stripes, and Steve Lacy. They transformed the music of these artists into a contemporary context, making it their own. As individuals or as a group, they have collaborated with those including, Peter Brötzmann, Sonic Youth, Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, David Grubbs, Eye, The Ex, Pat Metheny, Arto Lindsay, Steve Reid, Kieran Hebden, Merzbow, Christian Marclay, The Nomads, Guy Picciotto, Neneh Cherry and more.
