Music fair - Off The Page Oslo:
Locomofon is a duo consisting of Sakari Jäntti og Hanne Gutknecht who in 2005 began building their own instruments and effect pedals. In that way they got the high quality they wanted for their equipment, which also touring musicians quickly knew to appreciate. Locomofon has now build hundreds of effects, but has still not played their own concert.
They explore the intersection between analog and digital and build a small range of oddities that either produces or does strange things to sound. Their instruments are usually one-off projects and ideas often come from late walks home from the pub and inspiring meetings with artists. Additionally, they build more conventional studio equipment and help other manufacturers to improve their products.
Locomofon also restores and repairs audio equipment, new and old, and develops solutions on commission. Be it guitar amps, talking concrete angels or decorating kindergartens.
At Off The Page Locomofon will be demonstrating at least one new effect pedal no one has heard before.
