Rumpistol / Red BaronDK, US
Since 2003, Danish producer Rumpistol has been delivering his bubbling, melodic, and ever-buoyant electronic cuts, only to add a sliver of post-dubstep to his latest record, Dynamo – which garnered a 2010 nomination at the Qwartz Electronic Music Awards in the Discovery category. Over the years, he has also acquired quite a standing where film, video game, and theatrical scores are concerned. In 2008, he was commissioned by The Danish Film Institute to create a live soundtrack for Vassili Zouravlev’s 1936 silent film Cosmic Voyage. Rumpistol has performed throughout Europe, Mexico, China, Russia, and has appeared in various improvised setups and constellations with a smattering of Danish artists, namely Steen Jørgensen (Sort Sol) and Kidd, as well as Japanese electronic musician Kouhei Matsunaga. He’ll be performing at MUTEK this year with LA-based vocalist Red Baron.
