(pronounced: "Faaagl Pin-Giss")

På svenska!

Check if the rumour is correct!

The already legendary improvising trio which makes it hard for the audience to sit securely.
We reject no means.
Wild and fast improvised sound, words and behaviour close to total madness. Consists of:

[Fågelpingis and death]
Fågelpingis (JU - TH - JB) talk about that you have to be a BUDDY with death ...
[Fågelpingis brass instruments]
... from the film Jag vill ha barnbarn! ("I Want Grandchildren!")

Johannes Bergmark
inventions, musical saw, electronics, voice, dreadful shamelessness. Piano technician, ex-chairman in Fylkingen, co-founder of the Surrealist Group in Stockholm and composer at EMS. Music for radio theatre, films, slide shows, dance, theatre and has worked with unorthodox multi-instrumentalists like Hal Rammel (us), the late Hugh Davies, Bohman Brothers (uk) and Martin Klapper (cz).

Tomas Halling
percussion, trombone, voice, madness, questionable behaviours. Göteborg's hope with everything from improvised sailors' songs and onomatopoetry to cabarets of craziness that expose god and celebrate death.

Jacob Ullberger
banjo, baryton saxophone, voice, unforgivable actions. The man that plays everything from traditional jazz to slippery paws that suit as a shivering hand in the shaking Fågelpingis glove. Success with the spoon act in The Show that god never asked for!

“But Fågelpingis was an unusually successful combination with Tomas Halling - recitation, trombone and drums etc, Johannes Bergmark - special instruments and analogue synth, and Jacob Ullberger with banjo and voice. Halling's, mildly put, special exuberance, ended up in the right setting as he got the others to join him in his special form of improvisation. Among the highlights were a hihat trick I refrain from trying to describe, but was also all the time controlled and musical, especially in a purely instrumental piece. Bergmark played all his different instruments, and Ullberger stood for the continuity.” Mats Öljare, “11-13 maj 2001”

Cooperation with the trio Gud1 Modul12 (Tomas Halling is the common person) was started with great success in slow driving at Saltholmenfestivalen.

Unfortunately Per Selander was absent because of illness.
