Über Sunn O)))
Conceptualized and formed in March 1998 Sunn O))) have been challenging the ways we think about music in the twenty years since. A synthesis of drone, metal, minimalism and maximalism verging on pure sonic ecstasy. Over the years, Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson have forged paths and connections between the worlds of metal, drone, new music, jazz, and minimalism with startling results, while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density, elasticity of time, blossoming of saturation, multiple gain stages and some of history’s greatest pure valve amplification. Together they relentlessly pursue their exploration and elaboration of Sunn O)))’s legendary experiments with the physicality of sound in instrumental based live performances with remarkable events at some of their favourite venues, as well as concerts as part of singular events and in unique spaces such as Italy’s impressive cultural complex Labrinto Della Masone, Germany’s Ruhrtriennale Festival of Arts, Royal Festival Hall & The Barbican in London, Bergen’s Dømkirke and Manchester International Festival being a few emblematic examples.
