(One of Halster's instruments)
One of the most eclectic Montags ever, with live drawing, a free improv quartet, a Skype lecture, poetry and a film screening. Tonight's proceedings opened with a fascinating lecture on 'Virtues and Vices on the Tree of Life' by Duncan Fleming, live from his study in Bristol via the magic of Skype, and projected on the wall of the Rex basement. At the end the laptop was taken around the room so that Duncan could be introduced to his audience via the webcam. Next up was Anna Virta who introduced her latest project and showed the resulting short film. The film had been made in Malmö but was an international project together with visiting artists. Anna's talk about making the film provided insights into the joys and challenges of the collaborative process. Focus then shifted from the projection wall to the stage, where Halster's incredible array of instruments and sound making devices had been on waiting all evening. When they finally took to the stage and brought life to this array of objects, the band proved why they are one of the finest free improvisation groups in the country. This was their second performance at Café Montag, rapturously received, and tonight the core trio were augmented by Martin Holm. The audience's gaze was then once again redirected towards the wall, where Sarah Janes, proprietor of Quality Portaits had set up her easel. Tonight's subjects were Montag favourites White Trash Family, and Sarah had begun drawing them upstairs at the beginning of the evening. The portraits were then finished live in the basement while the band performed two acoustic songs with typically energy and verve. Back on stage, Tobias Erehed gripped the crowd from the get-go, alternating between poetry and songs with an seam of dry, laconic wit running through both elements of the performance. The intimate, focused atmosphere was maintained for the final act, as Albin Balthasar took up the poetic mantle with aplomb, combining wit and wordplay with an irresistable energy. It was then left to the evening's DJs, Toxic Talkers to round of the night in in style.
