GREG FOX QUADRINITY

Greg Fox is a New York City born-and bred drummer, multidisciplinary artist, and teacher. He has played on and released about 50 records since 2008, including his work with Liturgy, Ex Eye, ZS, Ben Frost, Colin Stetson, Skeletons, Hieroglyphic Being, Man Forever, and others, as well as with his own solo work and his projects GDFX and Guardian Alien. Fox has toured worldwide with various groups and collaborations, held residencies at The Clocktower NYC and Pioneer Works, and was awarded "Best Drummer in NYC" by the Village Voice in 2011. Greg spent 2016 for the most part at home in NYC, working on new collaborations and compositions, teaching individual and group drum lessons, and exploring new territory as a solo artist, using a hybridized electroacoustic drum setup to explore new dimensions through the traditional gestures of the modern drummer and the possibilities inherent in electronic and computer music. 

In 2017 Fox has toured the results of those explorations, his second solo album 'The Gradual Progression'. Fox views ‘The Gradual Progression’ as an exploration of selfhood, and more specifically, the search for his true voice as an artist. The seven pieces of ‘The Gradual Progression’ activate spiritual states through physical means, Fox’s rigorous inner rhythms the mandalic vessel for unbound expression and arrangement and signals both a reconciliation of disparate musical ventures and a new nirvanic stage in the artist’s oeuvre. Fox employs new methods of externalizing his polyrhythmic virtuosity into non-physical realms. This transfer of energy is achieved through responsive environments tethered to various aspects of the performance. Sensors attached to Fox’s drum kit trigger tonal palettes, or virtual instruments invented for each piece, which Fox communes with in the post-Free Jazz manner. That is, locating and emphasizing states of universal resonance in solo and ensemble settings in place of demonstrating individual ability.

For this show Greg will be joined by Michael Beharie on guitar, Maria Grand on saxophone and Justin Frye on doublebass.

JESSICA MOSS

Violinist Jessica Moss is an integral part of the Montreal underground and independent music scene. Part of the Constellation Records family since it's inception, she is best known as a permanent member of Silver Mt Zion. She was also a founding member of Black Ox Orkestar, has a long-term creative history with Carla Bozulich, and was a key part of Vic Chestnut's albums on the label.

She has collaborated extensively with New York based film maker Jem Cohen and his Gravity Hill project along with Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Jim White (Dirty Three, Xylouris White) and Matana Roberts among others.

As a solo performer, she aligns her performances with the tradition of storytelling, eschewing traditional form in favour of durational, multi-movement pieces with a wide scope and emotional depth. It's all for love.

Jessica will be presenting music from her second studio album "Entanglement", produced by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in My Heart) which will come out on Constellation Records in October 2018.

Greg Fox Quadrinity @ Kings Place in London

We are excited to welcome the master drummer Greg Fox for the UK premiere of his latest project, Greg Fox Quadrinity, which expands his solo work to a live quartet featuring himself on drums, Michael Beharie on guitar, Maria Grand on saxophone, and Justin Frye on double bass.

Greg Fox is a multi-instrumentalist, interdisciplinary artist, and teacher born and based in New York City. A versatile and prolific creative, Fox studied percussion with Guy Licata, Thurman Barker, Marvin “Bugalu” Smith, has a B.A. in Integrated Arts from Bard College, and has toured, recorded and released numerous records with Liturgy, Guardian Alien, ZS, Ex Eye, Skeletons, Teeth Mountain, Dan Deacon, Colin Stetson, Ben Frost, and many more.

Fox’s solo work is concerned with finding and creating gestural points of procedural interaction that reconcile seemingly unrelated interstitial spaces, using sound to create and describe emotional and geometric architectural territories. Using the drums as a main interface of communication, in tandem with Sensory Percussion, Fox describes, animates and accesses hidden synesthetic landscapes.

Festiwal Jazz Jantar 2018 / Snowpoet, Greg Fox Quadrinity / Klub Żak, 15.11

21. Festiwal Jazz Jantar / Klub Żak 
15.11.2018 / G.19.00
SNOWPOET / GREG FOX QUADRINITY 

Ceny biletów podane są na końcu tekstu. Bilety obejmują 2 koncerty danego dnia. Ostatni dzień sprzedaży I puli: 30 września 2018. 
Zarezerwowane bilety są sprzedawane w cenie obowiązującej w dniu faktycznego wykupienia zarezerwowanych biletów.

SNOWPOET / Thought You Knew / Young Britain / pierwszy raz w Polsce
Lauren Kinsella – vocal / Chris Hyson - electric bass, double bass, piano, synths / Josh Arcoleo – saxophone / Nick Costley-White – guitar / Matt Robinson – piano / Dave Hamblett – drums

Londyńskie muzyczno-poetyckie przedsięwzięcie, na czele którego stoi duet stworzony przez wokalistkę Lauren Kinsella i multiinstrumentalistę Chrisa Hysona. Inspirują ich jednocześnie Björk, Sylvia Plath, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits i John Cage, a w swoim podejściu do jazzu szukają połączeń z szerzej pojmowaną muzyką alternatywną. W efekcie stali się obiektem zainteresowania nie tylko prasy gatunkowej, rockowy serwis Louder Than War napisał o ich debiutanckim albumie: "Co sprawia, że są tak wyjątkowi? Prawdopodobnie miłość i tkliwość, pieczołowita dbałość o szczegóły i fascynacja połączona z doskonałością. Proza miesza się z poezją, kiedy czysty, nieskazitelny głos Kinselli szepce i z uczuciem otacza tę delikatną muzykę". Serwis London Jazz News podkreśla z kolei emocjonalny charakter scenicznych występów Snowpoet: "Każda sekunda koncertu jest pięknie przemyślanym, ostrożnie skonstruowanym spokojem, który trzyma wszystko w ryzach".

Drugi album zespołu ukazał się w tym roku nakładem Edition Records. Roger Farbey z All About Jazz zauważył: "Thought You Knew oferuje zapadający w pamięć zbiór utworów, które płynnie przekraczają granice folku, jazz i muzyki popularnej, a w dodatku są nasycone subtelną poetyckością". Festiwal Jazz Jantar będzie pierwszą okazją dla Snowpoet, by zaprezentować się przed polską publicznością.

GREG FOX QUADRINITY / The Gradual Progression / Avant Days / polska premiera
Michael Beharie - guitar / Maria Grand - tenor saxophone / Justin Frye - bass / Greg Fox - drums, percussion

Na „The Gradual Progression”, drugim albumie wydanym pod własnym nazwiskiem Greg Fox na podstawie w postaci matematycznie złożonego, nieoczywistego perkusyjnego rytmu rozwija eksperymentalną, elektroakustyczną przestrzeń. Przy pomocy tzw. Sensory Percussion, urządzenia umożliwiającego wbudowanie i odtwarzanie sampli jednocześnie z uderzeniami w membrany perkusyjnych bębnów tworzy muzykę w której uduchowiona swoboda znana z nagrań Pharoah Sandersa czy Dona Cherry’ego zestawiona jest z wirtuozerską precyzją i energią polirytmicznego grania perkusji. Kilkuwarstwowa struktura skonstruowana z rytmu, elektronicznych płaszczyzn i elementów ambientu a także pojawiające się plamy elektronicznych dźwięków, sample oraz przetworzone jazzowe frazy nadają muzyce Grega Foxa charakteru eksploracji wielopoziomowej przestrzeni, którą można odbierać w sposób porównywalny do obserwacji dzieł powstałych przy pomocy techniki action painting.

„Zdecydowanie można odnieść wrażenie, że przy The Gradual Progression Greg Fox podejmuje nieskrępowaną próbę popchnięcia muzyki naprzód – daje śmiałe świadectwo rozwoju. (…) Należy podziwiać ten rodzaj ambicji. [Fox] stworzył album wymykający się zdefiniowaniu zarówno za pomocą języka potocznego, jak i terminów teoretycznych i za to powinniśmy mu podziękować” – pisze Danny Riley w portalu The Quietus, magazyn Magnet dodaje ”[Albumowi] udało się uzyskać interesujący balans - to wysoko skonceptualizowana sztuka stworzona dzięki ogniście niezależnemu duchowi i wirtuozerskiemu talentowi Foxa.” a Matthew Schnipper na pitchfork.com podsumowuje: „Drugi album Grega Foxa to ekstastyczne, duchowe przeżycie. Obecny i przyszły bębniarz metalowy odnajduje nową, przejrzystą przestrzeń elektroniki, ambientu a nawet brzmień new age-owych.”

Nichts für schwache Nerven: Das Hoch-Energie-Trio SFD, bestehend aus Colin Stetson, Trevor Dunn (John Zorn) und Greg Fox, erforscht das Konzept des «Maximalismus» im improvisierten Kontext. Diese musikalischen Universalgelehrten sind seit Jahren – und jeder für sich – prägende Figuren der internationalen Avantgarde-Szene.

His further releases such as self released EP Skeleton Ladder or Grasp Gesture (8-minute piece for Swedish label CM – Country Music) displayed the new direction of B.yhzz’s works – distanced from the club dancefloors. In June Intruder Alert released his debut album Rejection, Blessing, which recently was featured in Fact Magazine ‘s ‘Under The Radar’ column.

Trio SFD (Colin StetsonGreg FoxTrevor Roy Dunn) [US]
Kolaboracja saksofonisty Colina Stetsona (współpracował z takimi legendami muzyki współczesnej, jak Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Bill Laswell, The Chemical Brothers, Animal Collective czy David Gilmore), perkusisty Grega Foxa (ZS, Liturgy) i basisty Trevora Dunna (Mr. Bungle, Fantômas czy Melvins), skupia się przede wszystkich na energicznych ekstremach dynamiki, gęstości i fizyczności, jeszcze bardziej eksplorując koncept “maksymalizmu”, jak zespół EX EYE (do którego należą Stetson i Fox), ale w kontekście improwizacji. To będą pierwsze koncerty Trio SFD w Polsce!
//
SFD, the collaboration of saxophonist Colin Stetson, drummer Greg Fox, and bassist Trevor Dunn, deals primarily in the energetic extremes of dynamics, density, and physicality, further exploring the concept of ‘maximalism’, as the band EX EYE (of which Stetson and Fox are members) but now in an improvised context. These are the first concerts of the SFD Trio in Poland.

SFD Stetson-Fox-Dunn @ Kulturlabor Stromboli in Austria

Dynamisches Trio mit gefeiertem Bass Sax
Stromboli-Saudades-Konzert

Der Saxophonist Colin Stetson erzeugt mit Zirkulations-Atemtechnik, Klappen- und Atemgeräuschen sowie einer speziellen Mikrophonierung gewaltige Soundwälle.

Er arbeitete u.a. mit Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson, Aracade Fire, Lou Reed den Chemical Brothers und LCD Soundsystem zusammen.
Das Trio SFD, das Stetson gemeinsam mit dem Drummer Greg Fox und dem Bassisten Trevor Dunn betreibt, bewegt sich zwischen den Extremen von Dynamik, Dichte und Körperlichkeit. In ihrem energetischen Zusammenspiel loten die drei Musiker das Konzept des ,,Maximalismus" aus - ähnlich wie bei der Band Ex Eye, der Stetson und Fox angehören, nur diesmal in einem stärkeren Kontext von Improvisation.

Colin Stetson (saxophoes), Greg Fox (drums), Trevor Dunn (bass)

Das Hoch-Energie-Trio SFD, bestehend aus Colin Stetson (sax), Trevor Dunn (b) und Greg Fox (dr), erforscht das Konzept des «Maximalismus» im improvisierten Kontext. Diese musikalischen Universalgelehrten sind seit Jahren – und jeder für sich – prägende Figuren der internationalen Avantgarde-Szene. Colin Stetson beispielsweise hat etwas geschafft, was nicht alle Tage gelingt: der Mann punktet gleichermaßen in Indie-, Avantgarde- und Jazz-Zirkeln. Alles, was er dazu braucht, sind Alt- und Bariton-Saxophon, spezielle Mikrofonierung und eine Zirkulations-Atemtechnik, die es ihm erlaubt, ohne Unterlass gewaltige Soundwälle aufzuschichten. Das wohl beste Indiz dafür, was uns an diesem Abend erwartet: Improvisation und Virtuosität gepaart mit der gebündelten Energie des Rock.

SFD • TRAFO • Jena, Germany

Nicht genug, dass der kanadische Ausnahmesaxophonist Colin Stetsonauf eine endlose Liste von Kollaborateuren wie Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Sarah Neufeld, The National und TV On The Radio zurückblicken kann, hat er sich für das vergleichsweise junge Projekt SFD mit Schlagzeuger Greg Fox (Liturgy, Zs) und Trevor Dunn (Melvins, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas) am Bass zusammengetan. Im Trio loten sie Dynamiken, Dichte und Physis des gemeinsamen Zusammenspiels aus.

Nachdem Stetson ein Dekade lang in San Francisco und New York seine Talente als Hornist schult, verschlägt es ihn 2007 nach Montreal. Mit wachsenden technischen Fähigkeiten und seinem reifenden Talent als Songwriter gelingt es ihm innerhalb kürzester Zeit, auf dem Saxophon eine eigene Stimme zu entwickeln. Es ist insbesondere Stetsons körperliche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Instrument, die sich auf das Publikum überträgt und seine Kompositionen erlebbar machen. Stetson arbeitet ohne Overdubs, ist dafür in der Lage mit seiner Zirkularatmungstechnik schier unaufhörliche Bögen zu spielen, wobei er gleichzeitig in das Instrument singt oder schreit. Unzählige Nominierungen, vordere Platzierungen in Jahresendlisten und Auftritte auf renommierten (Jazz-)Festivals festigen seither seinen Ruf als vielseitigen und virtuosen Spieler und brachten sein Solowerk einem breiten internationalen Publikum näher.

SFD @ Avant Art Festival 2018 in Wrocław, Poland

11. edycja AVANT ART FESTIVAL 2018 WROCŁAW

Kolejna edycja AAF i kolejne motto festiwalu? Nie, w tym roku w pełni skupiamy się na przekazie muzycznym i filmowym tyle konsekwentnym, ile poszerzającym pola manewru i wyboru. Bez zbędnych naciągnięć i niepotrzebnych kompromisów przedstawiamy artystów i zjawiska wyrastające z podziemnego pnia z całą jego kalejdoskopową barwą. W programie sami lub z naszą pomocą odnajdziecie tropy punkowe, przemysłowe, improv/jazzowe i beatowe, dające ożywczy amalgamat, w kontrze do kultury przemysłowej.
---
W tym roku we Wrocławiu doznacie sonicznego ataku o taneczno-szamańskim wymiarze w wykonaniu aliansu BNNT z Mats Gustafssonem (The Thing) - zespół ponownie na AAF, tym razem u nas. Do tego artyści z bardzo udanymi płytami, odnotowanymi wysoko w rankingu płyt 2017 m.in. przez The Wire - zobaczymy i usłyszymy egipską wokalistkę Nadah El Shazly ندى الشاذلي i węgierskiego gitarzystę Gosheven, z muzyką pełną droneambientalnych preparacji, modularno-synthowe brzmienia zaproponuje berliński Driftmachine, zaś korelat noise'owego gruzobetonu z beatowym impusem przedstawi Giant Swan
Do lineupu dołącza także długo wyczekiwany we Wrocławiu Emptyset ze swoją elektrowiwisekcją, jak również warszawsko-gdańskie trio LOTTO.
---
Repertuar filmowy koncentruje się na nieco głębszej, biograficznej analizie kilku fenomenów (aktualnych i czasowo odległych), które swoją ekspresją, walorem energetycznym, postawą, przełożyły się na kształt kontrkultury.

SFD Stetson - Fox - Dunn @ Summerhall, Edinburgh
Sep
29
8:00 PM20:00

SFD Stetson - Fox - Dunn @ Summerhall, Edinburgh

Exciting, eclectic and experimental is our motto... For our first event, we've handpicked SFD Stetson – Fox – Dunn, the mind-blowing experimental instrumental trio of virtuoso American musicians fronted by bass saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, film composer and collaborator extraordinaire Colin Stetson.

SFD's sound is a head-spinning and brutal-yet-beautiful combination of post rock, free jazz, avant-garde metal and experimental noise, similar to Stetson and Fox's other project EX EYE. For reference points, think Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Pharoah Saunders, Ornette Coleman, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Three Trapped Tigers, Aphex Twin, John Cale, and Stockhausen.

The show at the wonderful Summerhall on Saturday 29 September is the only UK date on SFD’s tour and Stetson’s first-ever appearance in Scotland. This is a VERY RARE chance to see one of the most incredible musicians around in action.

Montreal-based musician Stetson, whose solo and collaborative output ranges across free jazz, post-rock, minimalism, black metal and electronica, is renowned as an incredibly intense live performer.

His utterly unique style of playing the bass saxophone and astonishing physical performances involve an unconventional circular breathing technique, him ‘singing’ into his instrument and creating percussive sounds by vigorously clapping his keys.

Such his reputation that he has been invited to play live and in the studio for a wide range of acts, including Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, The National, LCD Soundsystem, Lou Reed, David Bryne and Tom Waits.

SFD features Stetson, whose solo album 'All This I Do For Glory' was picked as the best release of 2017 by BBC Radio 6 Music's Mary Anne Hobbs, in collaboration with equally revered virtuoso musicians, drummer Greg Fox and bassist Trevor Dunn.

The band, who are working on their first album, explore what they describe as the “energetic extremes of dynamics, density, and physicality”. In other words, they push their bodies, music and playing techniques right to the limit during incredibly intense and improvised live performances.

Stetson in particular is known for his extremely physically demanding performances. With mics strapped to his neck and to his distinctive 4 feet long bass sax, he produces an astonishing range of sounds that appear to come from more than one person and instrument.

New Yorker Fox is renowned for his hyperkinetic and complex drumming. He incorporates Sensory Percussion software into his drum kit, which involves attaching sensors to the drums that read the sounds and play back electronic sounds.

Driven by Brooklyn bassist Dunn, SFD sets are improvised and a powerful spectacle as all three throw themselves headlong into the music. The sound is at times aggressive, at others abstract, a raw head-spinning fusion of free-jazz with the quiet-loud intensity of post-rock giants Mogwai and the glitchy electronic excursions of Aphex Twin.

It’s a continuation of the ‘more is more’ maximalist approach explored in Stetson and Fox’s other band EX EYE, where they push their music to the absolute extreme, producing a heavy and hypnotic wall of sound with complex layers of sounds, textures and rhythms.

EML director Jim Byers, a former music journalist, said: “As a boutique promoter dedicated to Edinburgh, our aim is to curate exciting, eclectic and experimental events for the city’s music lovers.

“For our first event, we wanted something extraordinary and we’re incredibly excited to bring Colin Stetson to Edinburgh with his new project SFD for an exclusive UK show.

“This is a show for open-minded music lovers who appreciate artists who push the boundaries of what is possible. Expect a completely unique and extraordinary experience - musically, emotionally and physically, as three virtuoso musicians push their bodies and instruments to the limits.”

For fans of: Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Pharoah Saunders, Ornette Coleman, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Godflesh, Aphex Twin, John Cale, and Stockhausen.

Greg Fox is a multi-instrumentalist, interdisciplinary artist, and teacher born and based in New York City. A versatile and prolific creative, Fox studied percussion with Guy Licata, Thurman Barker, Marvin “Bugalu” Smith, has a B.A. in Integrated Arts from Bard College, and has toured, recorded and released numerous records with Liturgy, Guardian Alien, ZS, Ex Eye, Skeletons, Teeth Mountain, Dan Deacon, Colin Stetson, Ben Frost, and many more.

Fox’s solo work is concerned with finding and creating gestural points of procedural interaction that reconcile seemingly unrelated interstitial spaces, using sound to create and describe emotional and geometric architectural territories. Using the drums as a main interface of communication, in tandem with Sensory Percussion, Fox describes, animates and accesses hidden synesthetic landscapes.

The Gradual Progression is Fox’s latest collection of music released on RVNG Intl. On the album, Fox uses tonal palettes, or virtual instruments invented for each piece, in an intuitive and expressive way through Sensory Percussion’s hardware/software system that overlays sensors onto acoustic drums. Throughout the record, Fox’s rigorous inner rhythms serve as the mandalic vessel for unbound expression and arrangement. An exploration of selfhood that employs new methods of externalizing his polyrhythmic virtuosity into non-physical realms signals both a reconciliation of disparate musical ventures and a new elevated stage in the artist’s oeuvre.

Fox’s unique ability to combine percussion, organic sounds, and technology coalesced on his 2014 album Mitral Transmission. Over multiple visits to the basement lab of master jazz drummer and holistic healer Milford Graves, lab and medical equipment were used to make extremely hi-fidelity recordings of his resting heartbeat. Custom software rendered the waveforms into a rich MIDI score, which was then used as the basis for the compositions found on the record- a work that can be unflinchingly explosive, fluttering and merciless in one instance, yet poised and withholding in the next.

Don’t miss this last chance to have a transformative sound experience inside INDUCTION. Tauba Auerbach joins experimental band Zs for this unique, in-gallery concert.

INDUCTION is a collaboration between artist Tauba Auerbach and composer Éliane Radigue. This immersive experience pairs Auerbach's paintings, glass sculptures, and new video works with a seminal sound installation from Radigue. Together these works explore how vibration and flow can induce states of consciousness. 

LIGATURE, Zs' newest work, realized in collaboration with Auerbach and Paris, is a sound and projection based performance installation that draws on the calligraphy practice of Auerbach both sonically and visually. Amplified and surveiled markers lend form and content to sonic and visual environments realized by Zs, Auerbach, and Paris. 

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Zs (Michael Beharie, Sam Hillmer, Patrick Higgins, and Greg Fox) blend saxophone, drums, guitar, and electronics to produce a sound that, as the band says, “challenges the physical and mental limitations of both performer and listener.” Their music “envelops the listener and unfolds sonically over time, evoking unspoken past, present, and future rites and ritual.”

Tauba Auerbach (1981, San Francisco, CA) lives and works in New York. She holds a BA in Visual Art from Stanford University in Palo Alto, California (2003). In 2013 she founded Diagonal Press, formalizing her ongoing publishing practice. Recent solo shows include Diagonal Press, Bard College, New York (2017); Tauba Auerbach: Projective Instrument, Paula Cooper Gallery, New York (2016); and Tauba Auerbach: The New Ambidextrous Universe, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2014). A major solo exhibition of Auerbach’s work was organized by Bergen Kunsthall, Norway (2011), which was titled Tetrachromat and traveled to Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2012), and Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (2013). Her work has been featured in group exhibitions at The Kitchen, New York (2016); Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (2015–16); Musée d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2014); The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2012 and 2013); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2013); Auerbach has also participated in the Whitney Biennial, New York (2010) and the New Museum Triennial, New York (2009). She was the recipient of the Eureka Fellowship, The Fleischhacker Foundation (2008); SECA Art Award, SFMOMA (2008); and a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2011). She is represented by Paula Cooper Gallery, New York, and STANDARD, Oslo, Norway.

Laura Paris is a founding member of the art duo Trouble and co-founded the Coalition for Hispanic Family Services' Arts and Literacy After School and Summer Program in Bushwick. Laura is active as a sculptor, painter, projectionist, and installation artist. Paris is known for work challenging architectural spaces for performance and social ritual, and performances that stretch performer and audience endurance and capacity for attention. Recently she has shown/performed at the Queens Museum of Art, White Chapel Gallery (London), EMPAC, Pioneer Works, and VACANT Gallery (Japan).

Ex Eye: Sounds and Visions Session Five with Caterina Barbieri (London, UK)

Ex Eye: Sounds and Visions Session Five with Caterina Barbieri (London, UK)

Sensuous minimalism gives way to total maximalism in this double bill, bringing together the synth of Caterina Barbieri with the avant-Metal of Ex Eye, saxophonist Colin Stetson’s new project.

Meeting at the crossroads between Metal and Jazz, Ex Eye unites Stetson with drummer and regular collaborator Greg Fox (Liturgy), multi-instrumentalist Shazad Ismaily and guitarist Toby Summerfield. Together, they make music of extremes, Stetson’s baritone sax a muscular central pole around which knotty riffs, throbbing drones and incessant drums spin, creating a feverish and almost euphoric noise.

Caterina Barbieri’s set is a different proposition entirely. The Italian-born, Berlin-based composer draws from diverse influences, including Kosmische, classical Minimalism and medieval lute music, creating a layered, slowly-shifting and totally mesmerising type of synthesizer music.

CO-PRESENTED WITH
RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL NEW YORK

CREATED BY
SOPHIA BROUSDAVE HARRINGTONWILD DOGS INTERNATIONAL

A dazzling collision of mesmeric light, color and sound, Red Bull Music Festival New York and Pioneer Works present the live reimagining of Bryon Gysin and William Burroughs’ seminal experiential invention, the dream machine. Described by Gysin as “the world’s first work of art designed to be viewed with eyes closed,” the dream machine brought about vivid hallucinations of brilliant color through the repeat exposure of high-intensity flicker light. In this immersive concert installation, multi-instrumentalist/composer Dave Harrington, musical director and chanteuse Sophia Brous and designers Wild Dogs International come together to create an extended live meditation on the landmark invention, combining high-intensity strobe, immersive lighting and ceiling projection and a live dream soundtrack performed by an exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime gathering of music luminaries.

Performers include the legendary Moroccan Sufi trance ensemble The Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar, industrial pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, British cellist and electronic producer Oliver Coates, harpist Zeena Parkins, drummer Greg Fox, bassist Trevor Dunn and more very special guests to be announced. An unrepeatable event, best experienced lying down with eyes closed.

ΔΕΛΤΙΟ ΤΥΠΟΥ

Κανείς δεν κάνει μουσική όπως οι The Body.

Με κάθε του κυκλοφορία, το ντουέτο των Lee Buford και Chip King συνεχίζει να αγνοεί τους περιορισμούς του όρου “heavy” και συνενώνει αδιόρατα συνθέσεις ή παραγωγές που βρίσκει κανείς στην κλασσική, στη hip hop, στη rock ή στην ηλεκτρονική μουσική, καταλήγοντας σε έναν πλούσιο και εντελώς μοναδικό ήχο.

Το ίδιο συμβαίνει και με τις ζωντανές τους εμφανίσεις. Κύματα παραφωνίας δημιουργούν μια σταθερή ατμόσφαιρα τρόμου με ηχητικό όγκο ακατανόητο για ντουέτο και ανεπηρέαστο από τις επιλογές οργάνων στην εκάστοτε εμφάνιση τους.

Η κυκλοφορία της τελευταίας τους δουλειάς, “I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer” ακολουθείται από την πρώτη τους πολυαναμενόμενη εμφάνιση στην Ελλάδα αποτελώντας την ίσως πιο ριζοσπαστική τους δουλειά μέχρι τώρα. Άλλοτε μοναχικό, άλλοτε απόκοσμο και επικό, διαρκώς επιβλητικό και με αναγκαία κενά ανακούφισης κι αναπνοής σε σημεία, το ηχητικό σύνολο του “I Have Fought Against It…” είναι ακριβώς όπως το περιγράφει ο τίτλος του: Αδυσώπητο κι αδιαμφισβήτητο… Και κάθε προσπάθεια άρνησης του είναι άσκοπη!

***

Στην επίσης παρθενική τους εμφάνιση στη χώρα μας, το άλλοτε ντουέτο των Νεϋορκέζων Uniform έρχεται με τη συμμετοχή του σπουδαίου Greg Fox στα τύμπανα και στο καλύτερο σημείο της μέχρι τώρα πορείας τους, με το εξαιρετικό δεύτερο full-length Wake in Fright που κυκλοφόρησε πέρυσι από τη Sacred Bones.

Δημιουργημένοι από δύο παλιούς φίλους, τον Ben Greenberg (The Men, Hubble, αλλά και παραγωγό / ηχολήπτη ενός μεγάλου αριθμού δίσκων του καταλόγου της Sacred Bones) και τον Michael Berdan (Drunkdriver, York Factory Complaint), ως Uniform συνειδητοποίησαν ότι είχαν φτάσει σ’ένα κοινό μουσικό σημείο στη ζωή τους και ότι ήθελαν να εκφράσουν μια ανάλογα έντονη και οικεία μουσική εμπειρία. «Tο Wake in Fright είναι ένας δίσκος ψυχολογικής μετάβασης», εξηγεί ο Berdan, «Η απόγνωση που τα κομμάτια του προσπαθούν να αποδώσουν έρχεται από μια κατάσταση στασιμότητας και μονοτονίας. Και αυτό συμβαίνει όταν ξεπερασμένες μέθοδοι σκέψης γίνονται παρωχημένες και πεπερασμένοι τρόποι αντιμετώπισης της πραγματικότητας αποδεικνύονται ως αναποτελεσματικοί. Κάτι πρέπει ν’ αλλάξει, αλλιώς θα σπάσει.»

«Είμαστε κυκλωμένοι από πόλεμο, ολόκληρος ο κόσμος καίγεται και βρισκόμαστε ανήμποροι ν’ αντιδράσουμε, μας έχουν τελειώσει οι ίδιοι οι τρόποι αντίδρασης», λέει ο Greenberg. «Αυτή η μουσική είναι η αντίδραση και η απάντηση μας όπως λογιζόμαστε τη δυσβάστακτη βία, το χάος, το μίσος και την καταστροφή που εισπράττουμε εμείς και ο υπόλοιπος πλανήτης στην καθημερινότητα μας. Όταν παίζουμε, δεν νιώθω πια αδύναμος. Ελπίζω αυτός ο δίσκος να βοηθήσει να υπερβούν κι άλλοι τον θυμό και το αίσθημα ματαίωσης τους.»

***

Δεν είναι τυχαία αυτή η σύμπραξη αν και λειτούργησε εν μέσω συγκυρίας, μιας που πρόκειται για δύο διαφορετικά λάιβ που προσπαθήσαμε να δέσουμε. Η σχέση των The Body με τους Uniform είναι υπαρκτή, με πιο χειροπιαστό παράδειγμα τη συμμετοχή του Berdan στην τελευταία δουλειά των πρώτων. Ουσιαστικότερα και οι The Body αλλά και οι Uniform εκφράζουν και υπερβαίνουν μια κοινή οργή και η μουσική τους καταστρέφει μια κοινή ματαίωση, ενός κόσμου που έχει πάρει λάθος δρόμο.

Fuck your world when a child is hurting!

Uniform with Greg Fox | Belgium

Uniform 
performing as a trio with Greg Fox (Liturgy, ZS) on drums

"Wake in Fright, the second full-length by the New York City duo Uniformis a harrowing exploration of self-medication, painted in the colors of war. Following the Ghosthouse, whose A-side Pitchfork called “their most relentless track yet,” vocalist Michael Berdan and
guitarist/producer Ben Greenberg return with a new batch of even more punishing songs that incorporate elements of industrial music, thrash metal, harsh noise, and power electronics.

“This record is primarily about psychic transition,” Berdan explained. “The distress that these songs attempt to illustrate comes from a place of stagnation and monotony. This is what happens when old ways of thinking become exhausted and old ways of coping prove ineffective. Something must change or it will break.”

Uniform in Paradiso | Amsterdam

Uniform bestaat uit ex-The Men bassist Ben Greenberg en ex-Drunkdriver zanger Michael Berdan. Samen maken ze industriële noiserock en hardcore. Het is vanzelfsprekend dat het er bij liveshows alles behalve rustig aan toe gaat. Debuutalbum 'Perfect World' mocht direct een 7.6 ophalen bij Pitchfork, die het volgende schreef over de album-opener 'Perfect World': "Over a sharp and thin Ministry-like attack, Greenberg programs a drum track suggestive of a metal drummer stuck in a blast-beat fugue state." Het tweede album 'Wake In Fright' verscheen vorig jaar en is nóg meedogenlozer dan het debuut. Maak je klaar voor wapperende broekspijpen.

Uniform: Impetus Festival 2018 / Celeste, Spotlights, Pauwels (Lausanne, CH)

Uniform: Impetus Festival 2018 / Celeste, Spotlights, Pauwels (Lausanne, CH)

Impetus is back! L'édition suisse du festival des musiques et cultures divergentes aura lieu à Lausanne les 26, 27 et 28 avril.

Le romandie se réjouit d'accueillir la dernière étape du festival et propose pour l'occasion un plateau de quatre groupes, et pas des moindres:

CELESTE, UNIFORM, SPOTLIGHTS, PAUWELS

CELESTE (FR) 

Actif depuis le milieu des années 2000, trouvant son origine dans l’underground des scènes hardcore et metal lyonnaise, CELESTE est un concentré de violence, un véritable rouleau compresseur. Formation incontournable de la scène extrême française depuis "Pessimiste(s)", leur EP inaugural, le quartette est pourtant plus renommé à l’étranger qu’au sein de sa mère patrie.
Leur vile concoction de black metal, screamo, sludge et hardcore en font un combo unique dont les prestations scéniques, empruntes d’une colère cathartique (obscurité quasi totale, les musiciens s’éclairant eux-mêmes avec des lampes frontales rouges) sont à l’image de leur musique: puissantes, noires et intenses.

UNIFORM (US) - Only Swiss Show

Uniform est la réunion des New-Yorkais Ben Greenberg (The Men, Hubble) et Michael Berdan (Drunkdriver) sur l’autel d’un noise-punk viscéral, écornant jusqu’à l’assourdissement une musique industrielle et électronique tapageuse noyée dans un maelstroem guitare / voix déclamé dans une urgence suffocante.
Le groupe, signé sur Sacred Bones Records, est l’auteur de trois brûlots du plus bel acabit (2 LPs + 1 EP contenant un "Symptom of the Universe" de Black Sabbath passé au vitriol) et a annoncé la sortie de pas moins de deux nouvelles galettes en 2018. Il y a fort à parier que quelques titres inédits seront joués le duo à l’occasion de cette date exclusive en Suisse.

SPOTLIGHTS (US)

Leurs influences vont de My Bloody Valentine à Godflesh en passant par Smashing Pumpkins, pour n’en citer que quelques-unes. Duo en studio / trio à la scène, Spotlights débarque de Brooklyn et frappe fort dès son premier album sorti en 2016, qui permet au couple Sarah + Mario Quintero d’être choisi par les Deftones pour assurer l’ouverture de leur tournée US avec Refused.
Développant un style qualifié de "dream sludge" ou "sludgegaze", Spotlights a sorti son deuxième album en octobre dernier. Produit par Aaron Harris (ex-Isis) et publié sur Ipecac Recordings, le Label de Mike Patton (Melvins, Fantômas, Dead Cross), l’opus, d’une rare épaisseur, recèle à la fois beauté et noirceur. 
Les New-Yorkais ont également assuré le support de la dernière tournée nord-américaine des Melvins et ont accompagné le Français Igorrr en 2018 à l’occasion de neuf concerts donnés outre-atlantique.

PAUWELS (FR)

Pauwels, c’est une promenade taciturne de riffs amers mais bavards, l’alliance de la boue tranchante du stoner et du feu indomptable de la noise.
Le combo strasbourgeois, bestiaire de scène patibulaire et tempétueux, pourrait être le rejeton résultat d’une orgie entre Mogwai, Brant Bjork, Colour Haze et Don Caballero.

ENTRÉE 25.- / PLASTINIUM 15.-
PORTES 20h00 / CONCERT 20h30

Uniform & The Body | Austria
Apr

Uniform & The Body | Austria

“There’s heaviness. There’s brutality. Then there’s The Body.” – Metal Sucks
the body sind Chip King and Lee Buford, aus Providence, Rhode Island, seit 1999 eines der agilsten und kreativsten Duos im Extreme-Metal-Underground. Buford and King betreiben seit rund zwanzig Jahren Sludge als Gesamtkunstwerk, nennen Jim Jones, Shoko Asahara, and Charles Manson als Einfluss, haben eine vielleicht etwas befremdende Vorliebe für AK47’s, kooperieren immer wieder mit geistesverwandten Artists und schaffen auf diese Weise definitiv den Soundtrack, der dem Credo von THE BODY - „Sadness and Hate“ - gerecht wird.
In den letzten Jahren haben THE BODY u.a. mit Bands wie THOU, SANDWORM, KRIEG und FULL OF HELL oder mit dem Elektronik-Musiker THE HAXAN CLOAK zusammengearbeitet. Demnächst erscheint eine weitere Kollaboration mit Kevin Martin aka THE BUG. THE BODY bespielten in der Vergangenheit bereits große Bühnen im Vorprogramm von NEUROSIS. THE BODY waren aber auch immer wieder auch in kleineren Clubs unterwegs, unlängst auch mit UNIFORM, welche auf dem neuen Album von THE BODY einen Gastauftritt haben werden.

Uniform
Wake in Fright, die zweite LP des New Yorker Duos UNIFORM ist ein erschütterndes Ausloten von kriegerischer Selbstmedikation. Nach ihrer 12’’ Ghosthose, dessen A-Seite Pitchfork als “ihren bisher unbarmherzigsten Track” bezeichnete, kehren Sänger Michael Berdan und Gitarrist/Produzent Ben Greenberg mit einem neuen Schlag bestrafender Songs zurück, die Elemente von Industrial, Thrash Metal, Harsh Noise und Power Electronics vermischen.

VVK: 14 Euro (+ Ö-Ticket Gebühren)
AK: 17 Euro

Koncert: Uniform (US) + support | Warsztat, Kraków

"Uniform -duet tworzony przez wokalistę Michaela Berdana i gitarzystę i programistę Bena Greenberg - powstwał z obsesyjnej chęci stworzenia industrialnego porządku w punkowym chaosie". (Pitchfork) 

Duet powstał w Nowym Jorku w 2013 roku, kiedy to starzy znajomi: Ben Greenberg (ex-The Men, Hubble, oraz producent i inżynier dźwięku odpowiedzialny za większość pozycji w katalogu Sacred Bones) i Michael Berdan (ex-Drunkdriver, York Factory Complaint) zaczęli razem muzykować By utrzymać jak najbardziej intymne doświadczenie, zdecydowali się ograniczyć projekt do dwuosobowego składu, z programowaną perkusją i low-endowymi syntezatorami, robiącymi podkład dla gitary Greenberga i wokali Berdana.

Uwaga! Kilka kawałków zespołu wykorzystano na ścieżce dźwiękowej do nowego sezonu Twin Peaks.

Hanako (screamo/noise, Warszawa)

Hanako to słonica, która przez 60 lat żyła w tokijskim zoo na betonowym wybiegu, bez dostępu do trawy, drzew i towarzystwa innych zwierząt. Najczęściej stała bez ruchu, chociaż zdarzało się jej atakować ludzi. 

Słonie uważa się za jedne z inteligentniejszych gatunków zwierząt. Odczuwają żałobę, wiedzą, co to altruizm, współczują, uczą się, używają narzędzi, współpracują ze sobą, zapamiętują, naśladują dźwięki, wytwarzają abstrakcyjne dzieła sztuki.

W składzie ludzie z Evvolves, Brooks Was Here, Melisa, Zwidy, Native Lungs.

Skinny Girls
Chudzinki to jednoosobowy projekt grający soundtracki do nieistniejących filmów o poszukiwaniu wewnętrznego spokoju i staraniach, by stać się lepszym człowiekiem. Strzępki ładnych melodii i chropowate faktury skąpane w warstwach pogłosów i szumów, trzymane w ryzach przez rytm, który porządkuje te chwilami bardzo abstrakcyjne kolaże dźwiękowe. Od czasu debiutu z 2o13 roku pojawiło się kilka mniejszych i większych wydawnictw, a aktualnie powstaje nowy materiał, który, zanim zostanie opublikowany, szlifowany jest właśnie w czasie półimprowizowanych koncertów.

"Egzystencjalny smutek młodzieży z ambicjami artystycznymi przepuszczony przez życie codzienne w popkulturze. Niepokój śmierci w cynicznym świecie licytacji na znanie najfajniejszych zespołów" – Małgorzata Halber o "Because You're Worthless", drugim albumie Skinny Girls.

Najważniejsze tematy: miłość w czasach post-kultury, niskokaloryczna dieta i górnolotne idee, daleko z betonu świat.

Uniform (+Greg Fox of Liturgy) • Wreck And Reference • Berlin

Uniform (+Greg Fox of Liturgy) • Wreck And Reference • Berlin

Dawn of the Dance and GreyZone Concerts & Promotion are happy to present you a night of experimental metal noise electronics

Uniform (+Greg Fox of Liturgy) + Wreck and Reference

Wake in Fright, the second full-length by the New York City duo Uniform, is a harrowing exploration of self-medication, painted in the colors of war. Following the Ghosthouse 12", whose A-side Pitchfork called “their most relentless track yet,” vocalist Michael Berdan and guitarist/producer Ben Greenberg return with a new batch of even more punishing songs that incorporate elements of industrial music, thrash metal, harsh noise, and power electronics. 
“This record is primarily about psychic transition,” Berdan explained. “The distress that these songs attempt to illustrate comes from a place of stagnation and monotony. This is what happens when old ways of thinking become exhausted and old ways of coping prove ineffective. Something must change or it will break.”
The characters Berdan brings to life in his lyrics quit using but have ruinous relapses (“Habit”) or struggle as their resolve crumbles (“Bootlicker”); they use alcohol to ease their insomnia but and are helpless when they get sober and stop sleeping again (“Night of Fear”); they’re existential misanthropes trapped in dead-end lives (“The Lost”). While the titles have been largely culled from the world of horror, thematically these songs have more in common with the works of Hubert Selby, Jr than Lucio Fulci. These are stories about people at the end of their proverbial ropes. Their old medicines are no longer effective and their old ways of living cause them nothing but confusion and despair. They are paralyzed by fear, regret, and self-doubt. This is either the darkness before the dawn or eternal night. 
Greenberg sets these stories to menacing guitar and samples of literal sounds of war — the kick drums are bombs going off, the snares are gunshots. He drew the record’s immense sample library from action movies, Foley sound packs, field recordings, and more, and the result is devastating. The guitar is also as crucial as ever, and now as indebted Slayer as it is to Big Black. Greenberg conjures up massive riffs and shredding solos, pushing the band deeper into the metal world whose borderlands they’ve long stalked. Where the inner monologues of Berdan’s characters and Greenberg’s martial sonic palette collide, Wake in Fright finds its wrecking-ball power.

Uniform: with Onmens, Doopgrond & Wreck And Reference (Ghent, Belgium)

DOOPGROND ◊ OFFICIAL ALBUM RELEASE PARTY

Onmens

Forged in the filth on the floor after the collapse of Belgiums rave-generation, Onmens sets out to violently beat the party back into electronic music. With influences varying from techno over Hardcore to noise and punk, the duo pushes buttons with their deliberately left-field sound. Onmens seeks to keep you dancing immersed in a trancelike state while blood gushes from both earholes. Their tracks are the soundtrack made for that time of night when the mask comes off and the senses start failing.

Uniform (USA)

Where the inner monologues of Berdan’s characters and Greenberg’s martial sonic palette collide, Wake in Fright finds its wrecking-ball power. 

“We are surrounded by war and the whole world is burning and it doesn't seem like there are any appropriate reactions or responses left anymore,” Greenberg elaborated. “This music is our response to and our reflection of the overwhelming violence, chaos, hate, and destruction that confronts us and everyone else in the world every day of our lives. When we play, I don't feel powerless anymore. I hope this record can help others transcend their anger and frustration.”

Wreck and Reference (USA)

Wreck and Reference formed in 2011 and recorded their first EP, Black Cassette, in a garage, drawing upon the blown out intensity of black metal and the angularity of noise rock, with themes of determinism and Cormac McCarthy-esque isolation. Instead of guitars, the instrumentation on Black Cassette was constructed of samples played through distorted amplifiers. In 2012, their debut full length Y̶o̶u̶t̶h̶ represented a dramatic expansion of their sonic palette. In deeper, darker tones, Y̶o̶u̶t̶h̶ was a reflection on the opposing forces of dismissal and longing for both the past and the future, questioning the value of the life lived and life that is still to come. These sounds and themes were pushed further in Wreck and Reference’s second full length Want in 2014. Described by Pitchfork as having “radical vision” and “boundless experimentation,” Want expanded into a darker and more brooding territory, plumbing the depths of isolation, sadness, and hopelessness, as if written from inside a room with only a dimming window into a perfectly callous world. In contrast to Wreck and Reference’s past work, Indifferent Rivers Romance End is an album that allows the possibility of change, even the necessity of it, when the self comes to face the inevitability of continued life amidst the construction and destruction of relationships. The cover depicts a statue of Heraclitus, the tearful Ancient Greek herald of change, tied to a brick and drowned in a river of liquor and dirt.

Ex Eye at Roadburn Festival 2018, Netherlands

With the 2017 edition behind us, we're already working on next year's Roadburn Festival. 

Stand by for information on the line up, the 2018 curator, ticket details and much much more as it unfolds over the coming months.

"There’s something in the air here that really tugs at the heartstrings of why you fell in love with heavy music in the first place (and it’s not the weed smoke). I use the term ‘heavy music’ because this isn’t a metal festival; there’s prog, hip-hop, extreme metal, industrial, noise, psychedelia and more. But it all fits. It all works within the confines of what Roadburn is – a celebration of transgressive music, straying away from the mainstream and finding life in the deepest nooks and crannies of the underground, waiting to be discovered by ravenous music fans" -- Luke Morton / Metal Hammer.
