As TCF, the latest incarnation of the Norwegian contemporary artist and musician formerly known as Cracksmurf, Lars Holdhus constructs sprawling, ultra-modern and trance-like compositions that draw equally from musique concrete, digital artifacts, poetry and club genres like hardstyle and hardcore.

TCF is the latest moniker of Norwegian contemporary artist and musician Lars Holdhus. With breathtaking control of electronic software, he constructs ultra-modern, trance-inducing compositions out of his interests in intervening with machine-human relationships via A.I., algorithmic composition, and cryptography. His enthusiasm for encryption is visible with every title track being a chain of numbers and letters. An allusion to the experimental nature of his music which remains a locked box to many/much of his audience. His work as TCF sits somewhere between art exhibition and musical performance. His abstracted blocks of sound and explicitly arranged synths are an entry point to a world suspended of structure that is choked with frenetic tension.

This project is presented in the framework of We are Europe by Insomnia Festival.
