Greg Fox Solo: Autumn Falls: Hong Kong Dong en Greg Fox in muziekclub N9, Eeklo

In oktober van 2017 verschijnt er (eindelijk!) nieuw werk van HONG KONG DONG. De opvolger van debuutplaat 'Sweet Sensations' (2012) en de twee EP's 'Lesbians are a boy's best friend' en 'Dreaming in Paradise' draait helemaal om één instrument: de synth! 

De excentrieke New Yorkse drummer Greg Fox (LiturgyGuardian AlienZSColin Stetson...) heeft net zijn tweede soloplaat ‘The Gradual Progression’ uit. Met zijn getriggerde drumkit stuurt hij op zijn eentje een virtueel orkest aan. Het resultaat is unieke elektronica en ambient, maar dan met een free-jazz feel.

Concert in het kader van Autumn Falls, het rondtrekkend festival van boekingskantoor TOUTPARTOUT.

Ex Eye at Roadburn Festival 2018, Netherlands
Apr

to Apr 22

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.

Greg Fox Solo: + The NOO Ones, Rotterdam

Greg Fox Solo: + The NOO Ones, Rotterdam

The Avantgardistic State welcomes improvisations and experiments that open up new sonic vistas. We are delighted, therefore, to invite two masterful acts to shake down the walls on Boomgaardstraat.

Greg Fox
New York City born-and bred, Greg Fox is a drummer and a multidisciplinary artist and teacher to boot. His energy knows no bounds it seems; working on around 50 records in the last decade (in a variety of guises); including work with Liturgy, ZS, Ben Frost, Colin Stetson, Skeletons, Hieroglyphic Being, Man Forever, and others. We can add his own solo work and his projects GDFX and Guardian Alien to the pile. Fox was awarded "Best Drummer in NYC" by the Village Voice in 2011. 

The NOO Ones
With Wu Wei, the world-famous player of the sheng (the Chinese mouth organ) at their centre, the NOO Ones create a "music of the moment"'; rich in sound and one that employs a wide sonic spectrum. The band utilise a unique combination of instruments, something that allows stunning contrasts in dynamics, sound and pace.

"The new LP (Zwerk) [...] keeps the listener at the edge of their seat, as a new twist may come at every moment." Ton Beetz - Jazzflits

"A remarkable band, impossible to classify, and using instruments you could not imagine in your dreams (bass sax, shakuhachi, violin, steel-guitar, guitar, sheng and percussion)". - Eddy Detemeyer

Greg Fox [Rvng Intl. / us]
electronic, drumming, free jazz, avant-garde

Batteur surdoué et hyperactif aux mille projets et collaborations (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, Zs, Ben Frost, Hieroglyphic Being ou encore Ex Eye, projet post-metal qu’il a fondé en début d’année avec Colin Stetson), Greg Fox a sorti son second album solo cet automne sur le passionnant label RVNG Intl. (The Body, Holly Herndon, Blondes, Julia Holter…). Nommé « The Gradual Progression », cet album voit Fox user de nouvelles méthodes et technologies pour extérioriser sa virtuosité polyrythmique en des domaines non physiques. Il attache ainsi des capteurs à sa batterie, qui déclenchent des palettes de sons d’instruments virtuels, pour arriver à produire une sorte de musique électronique mutante. En résulte une richesse musicale folle, les fulgurances tonitruantes de la batterie se mêlant à des plages d’ambient et de free jazz spirituelles, à des boucles psychédéliques et à des sonorités futuristes.

Bio (fr) 
Composé de Colin Stetson au saxophone, de Shahzad Ismaily à la basse et aux synthés, de Greg Fox à la batterie et de Toby Summerfield à la guitare, EX EYE promet de laisser une forte impression sur vos esprits… et vos tympans. Les sonorités rugissantes infusées de métal de la formation sont le produit non seulement de la force brute que chaque musicien injecte à son jeu, mais également des interactions complexes habilement déployées dans cette union impie.

Membre des Besnard Lakes, Thor & Friends et USA Out of Vietnam, la musique de Sheenah Ko crée un son aussi rêveuse et immense, une mélange de sons electroniques planantes et vocales ambientes mais puissantes. Ses performances sont fascinantes et transformatrices.

Pirmais un vienīgais koncerts Baltijas valstīs Ventspilī!

Koncerta īpašie viesi: TESA.

Reizēs, kad šķietami ambiciozais apzīmējums “supergrupa” tiek lietots bez pārlieka patosa, runa ir par mūziķu kolektīviem, kuru dalībnieki katrs ir skaļi un spilgti minuši savas solo mākslinieku takas vai bijuši/ ir citu pazīstamu un augsti vērtētu kolektīvu dalībnieki. Šiem parametriem “Ex Eye” atbilst visādā ziņā. Četrotnes priekšgalā ir labi zināmais un ar citiem nesajaucamais saksofona spēles meistars Kolins Stetsons. Pie bungām – apvienību “Liturgy”, “Zs”, “Guardian Alien” un neskaitāmu citu muzikālu sadarbību dalībnieks Gregs Fokss (Greg Fox). Taustiņinstrumentus pārvalda Šazāds Izmailijs (Shazad Ismaily), kuru arī Latvijas klausītāji atpazīs kā Bena Frosta (Ben Frost), Sema Emidona (Sam Amidon), Marka Ribo (Marc Ribot) un vairāku citu mūziķu līdzgaitnieku. Iespējams, mazāk zināms ir kvarteta ģitārists Tobijs Samerfīlds (Toby Summerfield), taču viņa muzikālā bagāža nav mazāk iespaidīga - dalība amerikāņu eksperimentālās, improvizētās un free jazz formācijās “Crush Kill Destroy”, “Never Enough Hope” un citās, kuras noteikti ir pelnījušas arī šejienes mūzikas cienītāju ievērību.

Pēc vairākiem spilgtiem, kritiķu un klausītāju ar sajūsmu uzņemtiem solo albumiem, koncertiem pasaules ievērojamākajos festivālos, koncertzāles un klubos (tostarp Durbes luterāņu baznīcā 2014. gada vasarā), Kolins Stetons grupā “Ex Eye” kopā ar domubiedriem pauž savu patiku pret krietni skaļāku, intensīvāku mūziku, kuras klausītāju vidū viens otram līdzās atrodami gan Stetsona saksofona spēles apbrīnotāji un džeza cienītāji, gan metālisti un allaž pēc jauniem meklējumiem kārie, kuri dod priekšroku nerimstošiem eksperimentiem ar ierasto mūzikas žanru robežšķirtnēm. Arī autoritatīvais mūzikas medijs “Pitchfork” savā grupas debijas albuma recenzijā, kurā tam iedalījis augsto 8.1 novērtējumu, pievēršas pārspriedumam, ka “Ex Eye” mūzikā ierastie jēdzieni “metāls” un “džezs” netiek neveikli pretnostatīti, bet gluži pretēji – klausītājam ļauj atskārst abiem kopīgo.

“Tā ir neticami smagnēja mūzika, spēlēta viegli un pat līksmi, pateicoties katra mūziķa centībai un muzikālajām spējām. Dzenot vagas iekšā, cauri un beigu beigās ārā no tumsas, “Ex Eye” ir ekstātisks sakausējums, uzmundrinošs uzsauciens, izaicinājums bez iepriekšēja brīdinājuma,” tēlaini recenzijas nobeigumā izsakās autors.

Arī laikraksta “The Washington Post” mūzikas apskatnieks Kriss Ričards (Chris Richards) pirms pāris nedēļām no grupas koncerta Baltimorā aizgājis sajūsmināts. “Ex Eye” esot “milzu grupa šim nomācošajam laikam”. Performances laikā viņu piemeklējusi apskaidrība. Tāda, kādu cilvēks izjūt nostādamies okeāna krastā. Neesot iespējams aptvert visu, ko tajā brīdī sevī uzņem, taču ir pilnīgi skaidrs, kur tobrīd atrodies.

Ex Eye @ Stadtgarten - Cologne, Germany

mit Colin Stetson(sax), Toby Summerfield(g), Shahzad Ismaily(g,b,elec), Greg Fox(dr)

Was hier an musikalischer Energie aufeinanderprallt und sich zu einem stürmischen und zwingenden Amalgam aus Metal und Klangkaskade entfacht, ist nichts anderes als das Aufeinandertreffen dreier Virtuosen: Saxofonist Colin Stetson, Bassist Shahzad Ismaily und Schlagzeuger Greg Fox kombinieren in ihrem Spiel Präzision und feine Interaktion mit vor Kraft strotzender Klanglichkeit. Mit seiner ausgefeilten Zirkularatmungstechnik kann Saxofonist Colin Stetson sein Instrument scheinbar endlos am Laufen halten: Wenn er spielt, dann entsteht eine Musik, die reich an ausgeklügelter Dynamik und schillernden Klangfarben ist. Er erzeugt facettenreiche Mehrklänge und treibende Rhythmen und verändert das, was man unter Saxofonspiel versteht. Was da zum Vorschein kommt, ist eine Verdichtung des Klangs, beinahe so, als säße man im Inneren des Instruments, seinem Tösen und Vibrieren ausgesetzt, von dem Puls und der elementaren Kraft des Tons und seiner Schwingung im Kern erschüttert.

EX EYE / EX EYE // Colin Stetson – saxophones / Greg Fox – drums / Shahzad Ismaily – synths / Toby Summerfield - guitar

Jazz w metalowej wytwórni, dla której nagrywają między innymi pionierzy death metalu z Obituary albo jedna z najpopularniejszych współczesnych grup stoner metalowych – Red Fang? Niewielu odważyłoby się na taki ruch, ale Colin Stetson od początku kariery kroczył własną, nieoczywistą ścieżką, na której napotykał artystów z przeróżnych światów muzycznych, od Toma Waitsa przez The Chemical Brothers po Arcade Fire. Jego talentem oraz unikalną techniką zachwycali się fani muzyki alternatywnej podczas Off Festivalu w 2012 roku, ale także bywalcy festiwalu Jazz Jantar, którzy mogli zobaczyć jego solowy koncert dwa lata później.

Pomysł na EX EYE, najnowsze przedsięwzięcie saksofonisty, narodził się w 2016 roku, w trakcie sesji nagraniowych do innego wydawnictwa - Sorrow: A Reimagining Of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony, gdzie Stetson wziął na warsztat Symfonię Pieśni Żałosnych autorstwa Henryka Góreckiego i przemienił ją na typowy dla siebie, ponadgatunkowy sposób. Wtedy to zacieśnił więzy z Gregiem Foxem i Shahzadem Ismaily'em, z którymi postanowił kontynuować współpracę pod nową nazwą. Skład uzupełnił wieloletni przyjaciel muzyka – Toby Summerfield.

Mimo że muzyka na tym wydawnictwie zapiera dech w piersiach swoją intensywnością, pięknem i tajemniczością, jeszcze bardziej niepojęte jest to, że potrafią rzucić wyzwanie, zmodyfikować, a być może nawet zdefiniować na nowo cały post-metalowy krajobraz w zaledwie dwadzieścia osiem minut - przekonywał Thom Jurek z serwisu All Music. Podobnego zdania jest Langdon Hickman, autor współpracujący z internetowym zinem Treble. Jego zdaniem twórczość Ex Eye ma jednak znacznie szerszą grupę odbiorców: [...] To z całą pewnością metalowa kapela, a także zainspirowany metalem materiał, który spodoba się fanom gatunku. Jej zasięg jest jednak szerszy, obejmuje muzykę orkiestralną, drone, ścieżki dźwiękowe, ambient, jazz (zwłaszcza fusion), rock progresywny. Z tekstów tych wyraźnie wyłania się wizja zespołu trudnego do zdefiniowania, nieobliczalnego, przełamującego bariery gatunkowe. Zdolność tego albumu do igrania z waszymi umysłami i ciałami jest wyjątkowo hipnotyzująca - podsumował Nicholas Senior w recenzji dla New Noise Magazine.

Koncert EX EYE podczas festiwalu Jazz Jantar 2017 będzie pierwszą wizytą zespołu w Polsce.

Ex Eye - Colin Stetson, Shahzad Ismaily, e.a.- SOLD OUT, Amsterdam

Wat krijg je wanneer je de krachten van New Yorkse topmusici Colin Stetson (saxofoon), Greg Fox (drums), Toby Summerfield (gitaar) en Shahzad Ismaily (bass en synths) bundelt? Een overweldigende muzikale ervaring die niet alleen mentaal maar ook fysiek raakt. Ex Eye is de nieuwe band van saxofoonvirtuoos Colin Stetson. Met metal als basis, test de Canadees zijn publiek opnieuw tot het uiterste.

Stetson is voor bezoekers van het Muziekgebouw geen onbekende. Met Ex Eye bewijst hij opnieuw dat zijn zoektocht naar nieuwe muzikale kruisbestuivingen nog niet ten einde is. Door zijn inventieve gebruik van circulaire ademhalingstechnieken is Stetson op bassaxofoon een klasse apart. Doordat hij meerdere noten tegelijkertijd kan blazen, lijkt het alsof hij zich op het podium muzikaal vermenigvuldigt. Ook gebruikt hij zijn bassaxofoon regelmatig als percussie-instrument, hamerend op de luchtkleppen. Metal, noise, jazz, experimentele muziek: in de onnavolgbare vingers van Ex Eye verwordt het tot een uitdagend geheel. Het moordende tempo van drummer Fox en de monsterlijke riffs van Summerfield en Ismaily passen perfect bij de avontuurlijke aard van Stetson.

Uitvoerenden:
Colin Stetson - saxofoons
Greg Fox - drums
Toby Summerfield - gitaar
Shahzad Ismaily - bas en synthesizers

GDFX: Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime

This fall at Knockdown Center, artist Azikiwe Mohammed stages a performative installation of his fictional thrift store, Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime. New Davonhaime – a location conceived by Mohammed – is an amalgamation of the names of the five most densely populated Black cities in America: New Orleans, Detroit, Jackson, Birmingham, and Savannah. Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime was created to serve as a safe space for Black and Brown people living in America. Knockdown Center’s galleries will be fully transformed into a thrift store that contains objects both created and found by Mohammed including tapestries, records, postcards, paintings, lamps, and books.

Mohammed will be on site daily performing as the thrift store owner, Jimmy, accepting donations from the public in the form of photographs to be added to Mohammed’s Black Community Family Albums, or audio-recorded memories that detail the first time participants realized they were Black. These recordings, called My First Time stories, will be compiled and turned into 12” records that are then added to the installation’s growing collection. Both living archives offer an intimate and nuanced portrait of Black lives both contemporary and past.

Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime also contains a music library that invites visitors to exchange music using Mohammed’s custom New Davonhaime flash drives with an emphasis on visitors dropping off their original compositions to be shared with other visitors.

Previous versions of Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaimehave shown at Spring/Break and No Longer Empty in 2016, and Knockdown Center’s culminating presentation of Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime will be its most extensive iteration yet.

Azikiwe Mohammed graduated from Bard College in 2005 where he studied photography and fine arts. Since then he has shown these things in galleries both nationally and internationally. In 2015 he received the Art Matters Grant, and in 2016 was the recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Emmerging Artist Grant. He lives in New York and currently works at Mana Fine Arts as part of their mana BSMT program.

Opening Reception:
Friday September 8, 6:00-9:00pm

Greg Fox transcende as limitações normalmente aplicadas ao conceito de baterista, levando a execução rítmica para explorações melódicas e harmónicas sem nunca largar as pelas e as baquetas, fazendo uso da sua singularabordagem às possibilidades da electroacústica. Foi a sua inclusão à formação de black metal vanguardista Liturgy que o ajudou a levar para terrenos ainda não explorados da música pesada, mas as suas colaborações não se limitam aos nova-iorquinos. Desde 2008 gravou mais de 50 discos e colaborou com nomes como Ben Frost, Colin Stetson, Hieroglyphic Being e Man Forever, estendendo o seu raio de ação por diferentes linguagens. Melhor ainda: o currículo de Greg Fox ainda está em crescimento, e a suainfluência, tanto como artista de expressões múltiplas, assim como na condição de professor, far-se-á sentir no futuro.

Greg Fox
Isoladamente, o nome de Greg Gox soará pouco familiar. Porém, deixou assinatura em mais de cinquenta discos na última década. Um longo e diversificado corpo de trabalho onde cabem alguns dos melhores astros do nosso tempo: Liturgy, Hieroglyphic Being, Zs, Ben Frost, Colin Stetson ou Oren Ambarchi, entre tantos outros. Em todos e cada um deles, Fox acompanhou-os, no estúdio ou em palco, enquanto ainda mantém projectos mais obscuros como EX EYE ou Guardian Alien; paralelamente, dá aulas de bateria e envolve-se em múltiplas e frequentes performances audiovisuais. Em 2011, a publicação Village Voice considera-o “o melhor baterista de Nova Iorque” e um par de anos depois a lenda viva do free jazz Milford Graves, convida-o para experimentar e gravar em sua casa, dando origem a um brilhante álbum, “Mitral Transmission”. Feitos que falam por si.

Entre a entrega física, quase atlética, de quem associa técnica a rapidez, junte-se uma demanda extra-física, espiritual. Estas parecem ser as direcções que fazem mover Greg Fox que pelo caminho tem vindo a desenvolver uma sensibilidade única. O segundo álbum a solo chega agora pela cada vez mais essencial RVNG Intl. “The Gradual Progression” é um fenomenal excerto de um estudo ongoing em redor da natureza electroacústica do som. Se já na colaboração com o supracitado Graves o papel do software musical foi crucial, obra de Fox volta a gravitar pelas possibilidades da tecnologia.

Recorrendo a um sistema inovador conhecido como Sensory Percussion, o músico combina diferentes camadas de profundidade e novas dinâmicas, alcançando um patamar ímpar de expressividade no instrumento. Mas se à priori esta disposição de sensores, microfones e interfaces possa assumir-se como um processo pouco orgânico, a verdade é que se revela exactamente o oposto. “The Gradual Progression” foi interpretado e gravado num só take e preserva uma identidade intuitiva, de ascensão iminente. Soa a arquitectura sonora pura, após depuração de múltiplos géneros como o jazz, a electrónica ou o metal. É um objecto que habita no seu tempo, ligando-se a ele e dele extraindo uma genética de liberdade criativa sem limites. O mindset que encontramos neste álbum é simplesmente encantador; trata-se de uma colecção dualista de elementos - de fogo e água, poliritmia e silêncio, tensão e libertação. Claro que nesta concepção universal cabem ensinamentos alusivos à mestria de Alice Coltrane, Don Cherry ou Pharoah Sanders, do mesmo modo que encontra musculatura nos Napalm Death ou Lightning Bolt.

Destaque-se igualmente a visão holística de Fox, conectando pontos e construindo uma narrativa cujo movimento é desde logo descrito pelo título do disco. A travessia pelas sete peças aí dispostas é um genuíno apelo sensorial a quem as escuta. Facilmente suscita questões sobre o que soa em cada instante e mais facilmente provoca um magnetismo difícil de explicar. Das explorações melódicas e harmónicas há sempre um escape para o híbrido, para o desconhecido. “The Gradual Progression” é um rasgo translúcido num céu já de si estrelado.

Três anos volvidos da sua apresentação com Guardian Alien, Greg Fox regressa ao Aquário, como nunca antes o vimos. Uma energia constante, influente e inimaginável que por uma noite partilhará o exótico e o transcendente, em plenas chamas. NA


Clothilde
Foi com a edição de Labareda Vol. 1 que muitos ouvidos se conectaram, pela primeira vez, com a matéria sensorial de Clothilde. A compilação reunida pela DJ e agitadora cultural Sonja é uma referência na recente história discográfica por cá, combinando oito faixas integralmente assinadas no feminino. Um feito urgente e necessário, como há muito se sentia.

A sua contribuição ’Birdwatching’ escavou fundo na busca textural, resultando numa experiência imersiva - e que inevitavelmente abria espaço para a terra incógnita. É na natureza bruta das máquinas que Clothilde se encontra. É nas formas abstractas e nas meta-melodias que a sua multidimensionalidade se faz sentir. Éliane Radigue, Daphne Oram ou Delia Derbyshire representam pontos cardeais com os quais facilmente nos guiarão pelo fluxo sonoro desta criadora ainda a merecer franco (re)conhecimento. NA
