VOLUMES: Special Performance (Sarasota, FL)

As a part of the special installation, VOLUMES, by the artist Ezra Masch The Ringling is presenting four special performances highlighting influential and versatile percussionists, including Brian Blade, Greg Fox and Antonio Sánchez.  Each drummer will  play the light as much as they play the physical drum set, combining auditory and visual signals so precisely that the audience will eventually begin to see sound. 

These special performances are related to the special installation VOLUMES on view in the Monda Gallery, Sunday, August 12, 2018 through Sunday, September 9, 2018.  Learn more about VOLUMES

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.

Bentley Anderson plays total thrash trash electric guitar electricity. Mystic Ruler plays semi-modular fully-analog synth sequencer sins. En masse they improvise music like a blind poet's lucid dream of pagan black candles over a deathonic dim sea.

$12 general; free for students with ID and MOCA Members

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)

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)

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.-

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.

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.

ZEZ FESTIVAL: EX EYE, THE MAGICKAL WOW BAND

ZEZ Festival zamišljen je kao mutacija koncertnog ciklusa eksperimentalne glazbe koji se pod tim imenom održava u KSET-u već petu godinu i iza sebe broji preko 40 koncerata. U tjedan dana, festivalskih događanja, od 16. do 22. travnja, stvarat ćemo i slušati glazbu te pokušati otkriti do čega sve može dovesti zezanje s formom, dinamikom i zvukom. Uz koncerte i Izložbu zvuka održavat će se i radionice, predavanja, projekcije!

Tjedan započinjemo koncertom grupe Ex Eyepost-metal benda Colina Stetsona, jedne od najvažnijih osoba eksperimentalne jazz scene. Festival će tako otvoriti isti saksofon koji ga je pred punim KSET-om 2013. i lansirao. Ex Eye dostavljaju soničnu lavinu metala i noisea slobodne forme koji na sumnje može li se s metalom još uvijek napraviti nešto uzbudljivo odgovara s glasnim da!

Uz Stetsonov alt i bas saksofon, bend čine nemilosrdne perkusije Grega Foxa, gitara čikaškog improvizatora Toby Summerfielda i melodični synthevi S. Ismailya. Ova nečista metal sila debitirala je 2017. godine albumom na Relapse Recordsu. Igraju se s elementima black i doom metala, free jazza, hard bopa, harsh noisea, EDM-a pa čak i simfonija 20. stoljeća. Okupili su se kao live projekt na inicijativu saksofonista Colina Stetsona, široj javnosti poznat i kao član grupe Bon Iver, ili kao prateći i studijski glazbenik čija zavidna lista suradnika uključuje: Toma Waitsa, Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio, Feist, Loua Reeda, Davida Byrnea, Sinead O'Connor, LCD Soundystem, Bena Frosta i The National. Ostali članovi kvarteta također vuku poduže popise postignuća: izvanredni perkusionist Greg Fox iz avangardnog black metal benda Liturgy (i iz Hieroglyphic Being, Oneida, Guardian Alien…­), multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson i Lou Reed, Tom Waits, John Zorn, Laura Veirs, Billy Martin, Secret Chiefs 3…) te gitarist, skladatelj i improvizator Toby Summerfield (The Body). Uz takvu listu referenci i neumoljivi live nastup u kojeg ne sumnja nitko tko je doživio Colina Stetsona uživo, nije ni čudo da su ostvarili instantni status legendi među publikom i kritikom.

Zagrijavanje za mračne čarolije Ex Eyea priuštit će nam mistični roštilj-majstori i glokalni lordovi - The Magickal WoW Band. Kao članovi Seven That Spells i Jastreba, naučili su ne trošiti riječi. Jedino što možemo očekivati je „Total Disrespect for Music“.

Cijena pojedinačne ulaznice je 90 kn u pretprodaji, 120 kn na dan koncerta.

Festivalske ulaznice možete nabaviti u KSET-u (Unska 3) i Dirty Old Shopu (Tratinska 18) za 140 kn do 25. 3., a zatim će koštati 160 kn.

SORROW: A Reimagining of Górecki’s Third Symphony, Michigan Theater

Henryk Górecki’s iconic third symphony, often called “Symphony of Sorrowful Songs,” made a huge impact on listeners in the early 1990s and was a musical touchstone for virtuoso saxophonist and Ann Arbor native Colin Stetson.

DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAM BOOK
(197K PDF)

The work’s three movements centered around three laments, each focused in some way to child being taken away from a mother. Celebrated for the way he “demolishes clichés to unleash fresh, unexpected energies,” (Pitchfork) Stetson takes on the mammoth task of reimagining Górecki’s symphony for an expansive and contemporary sonic palate. Sorrow, his inspired new interpretation of the heartbreaking work, is “timeless and of the moment.” (PopMatters) It draws on a uniquely constructed 12-member ensemble, employing electric guitars, synthesizers, drums, strings, woodwinds, and soprano to create transformative extensions of the emotional core of the piece.

Zs @ Rewire Festival in The Hague, Netherlands

As Zs, the New York trio of saxophonist Sam Hillmer, guitarist Patrick Higgins, and renowned Liturgy and Guardian Alien drummer Greg Fox dispense endless streams of hypnotic free-jazz, brutal prog and minimalist drone. Heralded as one of the strongest avant-garde bands in New York, the trio are primarily concerned with making music that challenges the physical and mental limitations of both performer and listener. The trio’s first release in their current incarnation, ‘Grain’, was a two-sided EP that sourced the group’s previously material, effectively cannibalizing the sounds of Zs past to create two continuous, 21-minute visions of their future. Returning in 2015, the trio unveiled the highly acclaimed ‘Xe’, a full-length ‘debut’ that was recorded in a single take without any extra frill – no overdubs and no editing.

Arto Lindsay & Zs (US) + Illdjinn at ALICE

Arto Lindsay har gennem fire årtier bevæget sig mellem no wave, noise, brasilianske rytmer og udsyret pop. På ALICE optræder han med de New York-baserede avantgardister, Zs.

⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛

Døre kl. 20 / Koncert kl. 21

Billet i forsalg: 160 kr. inkl. gebyr
Køb billet: http://burl.nu/po5sxp
Lyt: https://youtu.be/WLaeWpDEy1c

Koncerten foregår på ALICE cph - Københavns nye kraftcenter for grænsesøgende musik, født gennem en fusion af Global og Jazzhouse. ALICE åbner februar 2018.

Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med Gong Tomorrow.

⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛⊛

“Lyt til det” har Lindsay sagt om sit 90’er art-pop band, Ambitious Lovers, “hele ideen var Al Green og samba. Det ene imod det andet, ikke en blanding, men en forskydning, højt/blødt.” Den kommentar er ret sigende, ikke bare for Ambitious Lovers, men for hele Lindsays musikalske virke. 

Lindsay er født i New York, men flyttede med sin familie til Brasilien i 1960’erne, hvor han mødte tropicalia-bevægelsens sprudlende musik. Den brasilianske musik kom til at præge hans musik. Som producent for, bl,.a. Caetano Veloso, men også på egne udgivelse som sidste års ‘Cuidado Madame’, hvor tropicalia og bossa nova mødet noise og no wave.

Da Lindsay kom tilbage til New York blev han med sin gruppe DNA en af de skabende figurer i byens no wave-bølge, som man bl.a. kan høre på B-siden af den legendariske plade ‘No New York’ fra 1979.

På ALICE kommer Lindsay til at spille sammen med Zs, der tidligere har besøgt på Jazzhouse. Den New York-baserede gruppes lyd er blevet kaldt alt fra no-wave og brutal-prog til post-minimalisme. Den balstyriske saxofonist Sam Hillmer kaster sig sammen med den klassisk uddannede guitarist Patrick Higgins ud i eskapader af samples og lyde, der simultant bliver bygget op og destrueret. Trommeslageren Greg Fox leverer mærkværdige rytmer, der udvikler sig fra stille gentagelser til sprængninger. Sammen kommer de til at skubbe Lindsays hede grooves og larmende pop mod nye soniske terræner. 

Illdjinn
Mads Forsby har i de seneste år markeret sig på på den danske eksperimentelle musikscene; med værker der spænder bredt i udtryk, genre, format og kunstneriske samarbejder.

Under aliasset Illdjinn forstærker, strækker og forvrænger han trommernes registermuligheder og arbejder i et felt af abstrakt rytmik, fri improvisation og trance. Hans koncerter balancerer mellem det kraftfulde og meditative og hans tilgang til trommesættet er uortodoks og særegen.

Currently spending 2016 for the most part at home in NYC, he is 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.

Greg Fox har hamret igennem på dobbeltpedalerne i blackmetalgruppen, Liturgy, styret rytmerne i Colin Stetsons progrockband, EX EYE, og så spiller han med avantgardistiske ZS og det spirituelle Guardian Alien. 

Med sin første soloudgivelse, ‘The Gradual Progression’, har Greg Fox ladet sig drive af en impuls, som altid har været til stede hans tilgang til sin musik: Fri improvisation i abstrakte mønstre, hvis rytmer former en mandela af lydeksperimenter.

På scenen er han alene med sit trommesæt, men det er et trommesæt i udvidet forstand. 

Han benytter sig af “sensory percussion”, hvor trommesættet er plastret til af sensorer, der registrerer, hvor han slår. Samtidigt med at han spiller på trommerne - og det gør han ret vildt - bruger han sit trommesæt som en MIDI-controller til at styre elektroniske instrumenter. 

Det giver en en post-free-jazz-feeling, der er helt unik, men samtidigt sendes tankerne mod Pharoah Sanders’ ‘Elevation’ eller Don Cherrys ‘Organic Music Society’. ALICE glæder sig til at kunne præsentere en helt særlig liveoplevelse med Greg Fox.

Lugar: Sala X
Precio: oferta promo 5€ | anticipada general 7€ + (g.g.) | Taquilla: 10€

RVNG Intl., USA audio video web

La batería se convierte en una extensión física, emocional y artística cuando Greg Fox intermedia entre la música y el oyente. Pocos intérpretes son capaces de convertir la percusión en una puerta a nuevas interpretaciones como lo hace el norteamericano, componente de dos proyectos tan influyentes como Liturgy y Zs.

La amplitud teórica y práctica van al unísono en su repertorio, marcado tanto por la uniformidad y componente más “trascendental” del black Metal como por la heterogénea actitud de la vanguardia jazzística. La batería de Greg Fox cuestiona límites en cuanto a dimensionalidad física y musical; tanto para él como músico como para el receptor.

El de Brooklyn ha desarrollado un discurso único como otros grandes de su generación:Deantoni Parks o Makaya McCraven. En su debut para RVNG Intl. “The Gradual Progression” cristalizan métodos e influencias en un solo proyecto: la expansión progresiva y la dinámica del free Jazz convergen con asombrosa normalidad sobre una estética que contrapone impulsos físicos con sonidos digitalizados.

Un disco que en siete piezas consigue despertar diferentes estados espirituales a través del sonido, el ritmo y la innovadora correlación de elementos.

Paraphonic 3 es un trío de saxo batería y electrónica que toma como punto de partida toda esa investigación previa del proyecto Abyectos y lo pone al servicio del saxo de Álvaro Pérez en un contexto más jazzístico, en el sentido de que la melodía y la armonía pesan más. 

Las texturas electrónicas están completamente integradas en la composición y el sonido del grupo, no son una capa accesoria. Hay una interacción constante entre todos los elementos. El procesado en vivo del saxo tiene un peso específico muy importante, así como la parte rítmica, que tiene un pie en el jazz más contemporáneo y otro en los ritmos fracturados de J Dilla.

Te lo trae Giradiscos.
