GGR Betong formed in 2014 as a tribute orchestra to the late noise musician Zbigniew Karkowski who, during the 1980s, lived and made everlasting marks on the streets and venues of Gothenburg. The idea was to do a one-off concert, performing a particular piece of heavy noise music by Karkowski, and then move on. Instead, the orchestra continues to play and has gradually built a repertoire of noise works, a selection of which will be performed tonight.
