Hauan collaborates within the duo AvantGong including Jørn Øien, where they want to create forms, melodies and coherence using synths, drums, electronics with free music and world music as a starting point. The result is musical ideas where the sound sources merges seamlessly into a free-improvised expression that groove and tonality varied through a stream of fascinating sound images. Inspired by the music and cultures from around the world, electronica music and noise, jazz and improvisational music, the duo seeks to create a distinctive sound.
