UNIVERSITY CHALLENGED are Ajay Saggar (Bhajan Bhoy), Oli Heffernan (Ivan The Tolerable) and Kohhei Matsuda (Bo Ningen). The trio began in 2019, playing shows in Holland, delivering highly dynamic sense-rattling shows, ranging from gentle melodic orchestral spinouts to epic power jams, all backed by beautiful self-made films in the background. An eight track double album, “Oh Temple!” is in the offing, mixed and produced by Saggar at his Soundation Studio in Holland in the summer of 2020 and mastered by Oli Heffernan in England. While there is commonality in the artists’ approach to music, there are a wide variety of styles – kosmische musik, electronic experimentation, deep spiritual jazz, modern classical, pastoral guitar soli, and more. For fans of Amon Düül, Popol Vuh, John Martyn, Aerial M, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Haruomi Hosoni and The Incredible String Band.
Donatas Bielunskis project “Hidden Variables”
Expect an Indian classical music style dhrupad mixed with ambient electronics: all is played with a double bass. Low end and trippy delays guaranteed – space out and enjoy.
