Walking the line of experimental improvisation and extreme sonics, three artists evoke thrilling resonances in their search for emotional surrender.
Beastly metal force Ex Eye regroups four skilled artists playing music of crushing percussion, bleak synths and adrenaline-fuelled destruction. Comprised of saxophonist and Arcade Fire collaborator Colin Stetson, multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy, Ben Frost) and guitarist Toby Summerfield, this explosive quartet skillfully loses itself in ecstatic abandon.
( SIC ), an improvisation project by Julian Bonequi and Rodrigo Ambriz, hybridizes savage percussion and extreme vocals into spasmic states and possessive sensations. It ritualistically detonates the primitive and the ecstatic, intuition and self-induced alienation, the bold and the subtle through a series of short, explosive vignettes.
Stefan Fraunberger will open with "برزخ" (Barzakh), a project exploring the "barrier between the physical and spiritual worlds" with a booming doom of dulcimers and electronics that linger in the slowly decaying sonics of the space.
