KONK PACK brings together three major figures in contemporary music. Active for two decades, KONK PACK rides the knife-edge of musical expression, working with the full range of dynamics and form, from sustained subtle restraint to explosive attacks of marvelously bonkers intensities. The three individual members bring massive experience in the most adventurous corners of new music, from Thomas Lehn's conservatory training to Tim Hodgkinson's work in the legendary Leftist prog-rock band Henry Cow & in the ensembles of composers Iancu Dumitrescu & AnaMarie Avram to Roger Turner's impeccable roster of collaborations with all of the prime luminaries in the world of free improvisation. KONK PACK have amazed audiences at festivals and concerts all over the world with the sheer energy of its rapid-fire interplay, earning numerous critical accolades.

Since 1997, KONK PACK have toured regularly throughout Europe, completed three major tours of the US, and have been described by The Wire magazine's Lee Henderson as "one of the most exciting improv groups in the world." The group have released five compact discs, and performed at major music festivals from Vancouver to Belgrade. The musics they've made individually are reason enough to take note of this trio, but the music they make together leaves audiences amazed and inspired.
