MoHa! consists of two young men from Stavanger, Norway. They have been working together since 1998 in various corners of experimental music and in different settings. 2004 saw the dawn of MoHa! as a duo. Their first release on Rune Grammofon was "Raus aus Stavanger" in 2006. The release gained a lot of national and international recognition.
Their second album "Norwegianism" was regarded one of the best records of the year in 2007 under "outer limits" in The Wire. The music was back then described by BBC as "funky heavy metal musique concrete".
In 2008 there was a drastic change in the music, going from improvisation to more strictly composed material. After a lot of rehearsing and about 70 concerts in Europe. MoHa! recorded "One-way ticket to candyland" and "Jeff Carey's MoHa!", both released on Rune Grammofon.
In the end of 2008 MoHa! also started a collaboration with visual artists Idan Hayosh (Israel) and Anu Vahtra (Estonia). Together they created a massiv audio/visual set-up that consisted of a wall of 40 lamps in front of the performers. The collaboration is known as "Fire & Ignorance" and is a shitstorm of blinding lights and deafening sonic blasts. Henie-Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo produced the first concert, and after they went on a two week tour in northern europe. In 2011 there was a one-off performance at the CTM festival in Berlin, that hopefully will be released on a DVD. They are currently working on a newer, bigger, better, faster, louder piece that will be performed from 2012 on.
