The members of Murmansk coalesced into the expanding Deserted Village collective and label. The members of Murmansk are multi-instrumentalists continuously refining their approach to making music. Acoustic and electric, analogue and digital, found objects prepared and home made instruments and good old-fashioned extended technique are all employed in a Murmansk performance.
The six members of Murmansk are all involved in a diverse range of other projects and come from different backgrounds; some have studied modern composition, jazz and others are self-taught. This enriches the music and creates tensions in the performances, which can be resolved in unexpected ways or not at all.
