MANKAN is a live electronics duo exploring the inner qualities of sounds and visuals using real time sampling and processing. They have developed a highly interactive setup providing a very open and intuitive playground. Both Tom and Vignir are experienced musicians and work simultaneously in very different styles of music, brass bands, instrumental indie music, classical choir singing, big band afro funk and of course electronic music. Vignir is also a visual artist, working with real time generative graphics through diverse installations and performances.
In their fruitful collaboration as Mankan they set out to investigate and put to the test their spontaneous musical nerve shootings. With the use of a very reactive rig, their performance offers a lively dialog between two artists with different backgrounds but sharing a very similar approach to Music.
