Ich Bin N!ntendo

Ich Bin N!ntendo plays improvised noise punk. Their influences are a mixture of american hard-core, japanese noise and european improvised music. The result is often intense and no compromises are made. External tools and preparations on their instruments, such as bows and solid metal, expands their opportunities and color the soundscape. Ordinary distortion-pedals, a minimum of reverb, and maybe a noise-oscilliator is used, but they never use electronics that make the instruments sound like something they're not. The band rather want to extend the current limits of their instruments, in addition to play cruel and punk sounds.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
