Sven-Åke Johansson & Jan Jelinek / puls-plus-puls


Part of “Bildet Nischen! Rückkopplungen aus dem Zodiak Free Arts Lab”


Sven-Åke Johansson and Jan Jelinek performed together for the first time in 2017 at the Festival for Percussion & Electronics. In 2018 they released the joint album “pulspluspuls”, followed by performances such as at the mœrs festival in 2020 and on 21.8.2021 at the reopening of the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin.
Jan Jelinek began performing electronic live sets under various alter egos in the club scene in 1998. In 2008 he started his label faitiche as a platform for his own experiments, for joint projects and for works by musician friends. Jelinek's current oeuvre ranges from field recording collages to electroacoustic music and minimalist drones.
Sven-Åke Johansson is one of the style-defining drummers of the German free jazz era of the 1960s and 1970s. From the 1980s onwards, he pursued an artistic path as a music performer that was largely independent of institutions and groups, increasingly also in the circles of visual art and new music.
