Dear all,

Please find here some artists who will be touring soon.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you want to set up a concert/performance for one of them.

CHARLES BULLEN (UK)

Availability: To be announced
Territory: Europe
Charles Bullen was a member of timeless pre/post-everything trio This Heat. He grew up in Liverpool and after moving to London in the early 70’s he formed the improvising duo Dolphin Logic with Charles Hayward, which later, with the addition of “non-musician” Gareth Williams, became This Heat. After releasing two seminal albums the band split in 1982 and Bullen made an album the following year under the name Lifetones focusing on repetition and a more syncopated dub influenced sound. Earlier this year, after a series of re-issues on Light In The Attic Records, Bullen and Hayward formed This Is Not This Heat, a group assembled to realise and re-imagine the music of This Heat with several musical luminaries from the London experimental music world including Daniel O’Sullivan, Alex Ward, James Sedwards, Alexis Taylor.

PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD (USA)
https://www.psychicgraveyard.com/music
Availability: 30th May, 1st-2nd June 2019
Territory: Belgium
Loud as Laughter comes across as a thrashing, wild beast of a track – frightening in its intensity (think Arab on Radar meets Throbbing Gristle). Listening to it brings back memories of an episode of Soviet-era cartoon Nu Pogodi – the one where main character/villain ends up in a rocket and gets violently shaken for a minute or so in a simulation of an astronaut’s experience.

BRIGID MAE POWER (UK)

Availability: Late September early October 2019 except but on 28th September
Territory: Belgium, The Netherlands, France
BRIGID MAE POWER is an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, like Judee Sill, Micky Newburyor Linda Perhacs before her, paints her songs in dreamily expansive strokes, transporting earthly compositions into universal and exultant realms. Her self-titled debut on Tompkins Square was a majestic suite of reverb-swathed laments for voice, guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonium, recorded at the Portland studio of key musical foil Peter Broderick. Themes include transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. In the words of Power, the album was about « trusting if you lose yourself or your way – you can come back ».

Thanks for your time and reading.

I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.

All the best.

Alain

Territory: Europe + UK
After a festival appearance together in Winnipeg Canada courtesy of Koma-Elektronik’s and Forthwith Festival last February 2017, it was clear that the methods of Chen’s vocal techniques and her synthesizer designed by Peter Blasser would challenge Talibam!’s vociferous musical vocabulary. Since, they have toured the midwest and east coast of the USA in fall of 2017, appearing at the Iowa City’s Witching Hour Festival, Elastic Arts in Chicago, and RedRoom in Baltimore.
AUDREY CHEN is a 2nd generation Chinese/Taiwanese-American musician who was born into a family of material scientists, doctors and engineers, outside of Chicago in 1976. Parting ways with the family convention, she turned to the cello at age 8 and voice at 11. After years of classical and conservatory training in both instruments, with a resulting specialization in early and new music, she parted ways again in 2003 to begin new negotiations with sound in order to discover a more individually honest aesthetic.

Gaël adopts a persona, Sofia, and through a third person dissociation she presents a dynamic sample of her compositional psyche, creating a compelling mixture of abstract noise experimentations, field recordings and ecstatic electronic manipulation.

Besides her record label accreditations and her diploma in electroacoustic composition in the lineage of the GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales), she has worked for Radio France Internationale, as a sound mixer for film, before jumping onto many sound art psychogeographical projects under the name of IhearU and multimedia collaborations such as with artists Constanze Ruhm, Marlies PöschI, Shu Lea Cheang, also participating in various compilations, audiowalks, radio productions, online platforms, installations, while travelling the world to collect voices and inspiration for her musical compositions, and giving classes on sound to explore it’s therapeutic dimension, using it as a social tool to interact with diverse audiences.

Her music can be described as drone abstract harsh noise by layeredof Analog Synthesisers and self -sampling beats.Yuko Araki, amulti-instrumentalist from Tokyo and a member of the blackambient/doom metal duo Concierto de la Familia. Araki’scontribution here is two 10-minute tracks of grinding doom-tinged feedback—there’s a bleak, low-end pulse, like a distant boiler,
which keeps dissolving into static overlays. The contrast between Bergegas Mati’s vindictive blare and Araki’s more structured
assault is weirdly sublime; it’s one of last year’s most notable releas.

Availability: On request

Alto saxophonist and (instant) composer Thomas Olbrechts (reFLEXible, Champ d’Action, DRY SPEED…) has developed a strong musical discourse that plays off rigid saxophone techniques and composition systems against each other.
As an alto player pur sang he’s exploring the most extreme, subtle, austere and abstract dynamics of the saxophone, ranging from almost unhearable introvert sounds to screaming sequences, to ways of playing the saxophone which are explicitly related to the tradition of comtemporary music and jazz. T.O. is often using microphones to amplify the inside of the saxophone often combined with the technique of right-left panning to project his sounds on different speakers. At the same time as a soloist and/or in duo with pipe organ he’s exploring the dynamic possibilities of architectural amplification and ‘sacred acoustics’.
In January 2019 his first solo album has been released on seminalrecords / BRASIL:

All the best.
