Shepherds of Cats is a quartet formed in early 2014. Having instant and strong understanding, they explore the outer limits of good taste and push the limits of what should be considered as acceptable. Their attention to detail is impeccable and have created a deep trust to support each other in the most obscure and ridiculous tangents. Using improvisation as their working method, they create sonic stories and worlds, drenched in incredulity at their own existence. Their compositions are created in real time and may suspend time as well as good taste and other senses. They are sound hunters, gathering and re-appropriating sounds in sometimes inappropriate manners. They are well mannered, have shame but no ego.

Shepherds of Cats colaborate closely with Vj Pietrushka.
