Tore Honoré Boe: Acoustic laptops The “acoustic laptops” are wood boxes with various tiny objects attached; springs, stones, metal, rubber, string, needles, memorabilia – amplified by contact mikes (piezos). They are musical instruments with which you can explore a soundworld that usually pass unnoticed and thus connect with unfiltered reality in a pleasurable way. Boe use them for microacoustic sound exploration and performances, but he also share them via exhibitions where they stand plugged for the visitors to play, or in workshops where young and old are invited to create their own. Various acoustic laptops are on permanent and temporary display at galleries, other musicians are using them, and Boe travels continuously to present them in any way and venue possible. They have become instruments, art objects and a good comment on/contrast to the digital culture.

Members have included Lasse Marhaug, Kai Kobi Mikalsen, Mads Staff-Jensen and others, but are now a fixed trio starring Kim Xmazz, Kjetil Hanssen and Tore H. Boe. You have never ever witnessed such a positive message in such an extremely punked up way. “We love to love U”.
