BOOKING OFFER: EUGENE ROBINSON (FROM OXBOW)

Posted in Uncategorized on mai 31, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for Eugene Robinson.
He's available between 28th and 31st November.

http://www.eugenesrobinson.com.



EUGENE S. ROBINSON: RACONTEUR, ROUSTABOUT TALKS ABOUT BLOOD, DEATH + DESIRE
Drawing on a tradition established by the likes of SPAULDING GRAY, ERIC
BOGOSIAN,
and CHAZZ PALMINTIERI, EUGENE S. ROBINSON's show can be called neither
spoken word
nor slam poetry but more the theater of the monologue extreme: with a life
that's
seen him break bread with murderers, thieves, killers, connivers, pimps
and whores,
Robinson's trenchant observations are minus empty moralizing and delivered
with a
force and focus of someone who has lived what he speaks and delivers it
like he's
pulled a bar stool up next to yours. From his book FIGHT: EVERYTHING YOU
EVER WANTED
TO KNOW ABOUT ASS KICKING BUT WERE AFRAID YOU'D GET YOUR ASS KICKED FOR
ASKING to
his newest novel PATERNOSTRA, Robinson's tales take you into the dark
alley of
whatever you never wanted to remember for as long as you will after you
hear this.
And in special locations he'll be accompanied by a musician.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKIG OFFER: THE DEAD NEANDERTHALS

Posted in Uncategorized on mai 25, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm booking one date only for DEAD NEANDERTHALS.

http://www.aucbookings.com/2290/dead-neanderthals.html

The open date is: 29th June 2012

The Dutch sax-and-drum duo Dead Neanderthals are not your average
free-jazz experience. Incorporating elements from noise, jazz, metal and
grindcore, they deliver a punch in the guts with every release. Heavily
distorted saxophone sounds and machine-like drumming make their upcoming
release Jazzhammer / Stormannsgalskap an extremely abrasive affair. After
recording and mixing, the record was sent to Norway and was mastered by
Jørgen Træen (Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho, Enslaved, Kings of Convenience,
etc). The record will be distributed world wide by Burning World Records.
Dead Neanderthals took their weirdness to the stage less than a year ago
and during this short period of time already played Le Guess Who?
festival, De-Affaire festival, Incubate festival, Zomerparkfeest festival,
and supported Shining (No) on their Dutch tour dates.

Please get back to me if you're interested in setting up a gig for them.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER: FATHER MURPHY

Posted in Uncategorized on mai 23, 2012 by debloque

Dear all,

 

I’m booking some dates for FATHER MURPHY.

 

They’re availabke from 12th November onwards.

 

http://fathermurphy.blogspot.com/

 

http://soundcloud.com/seek-harbor-booking/father-murphy-it-is-funny-it

 

 

 

 

FATHER MURPHY are an Italian trio comprised by freddie (vocals, guitar), Chiara Lee (vocals, keyboards, percussions) and Vittorio Demarin (drums, viola, vocals). Born in Treviso, Northern Italy, from the ashes of Federico’s several previous musical projects, Father Murphy with two albums and a plethora of ep’s and limited releases became one of the most mysterious and enigmatic musical entities coming out of Italy. If their first album Six Musicians getting unknown was still somewhat rooted in twisted psychedelic pop and sounded vaguely related to Os Mutantes

(Brazil) and Italian psych pop masters Jennifer Gentle, the second record, with “…and He told us to turn to the Sun” they did a significant step ahead – out of every familiar musical genre and right into the darkness.

Recorded in a church between the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, And He told us to turn to the sun maybe was born like a rather weird attempt to a concept album about religion, but surely sounds like a collection of dark, foreboding songs that crawl and twist and hiss like that old biblical serpent. Think of Gnostic masses, kabbalistic chanting, chiming little bells, tinny Gregorian-like drones played on toy-keyboards and the subtle but inescapable influence of 70’s Italian horror rock acts like Jacula and soundtrack masters Goblin and Ennio Morricone, and you will have some of the ingredients that make Father Murphy’s music. Add a good deal of lunacy and enough humour to keep the gloom away (just because you cannot take yourself that seriously) and the album is here, in all its strangely beguiling simplicity: an uneasy, compelling, furiously heretic yet sandblasted in Catholicism little album that could come only out of Italy.

The band grew in those years a strong fellowship in Italy as elsewhere, being often to always on tour (more than 200 shows in the last 3 year, with three Us tours, shows all over Europe, participation at  SONIC CITY Festival callled by curators  DEERHOOF and many more) getting the attention also of the Italian Natonial television (RAI) where they performed for almost two hours during the tv program “Larsen”. Their songs played in many radio stations, Italian as foreign, as Radio RAI, Resonance Fm London, Radio Student Lubljiana, radio stations in Moscow, Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam… WFMU, WFJC, WNYU, KDVS and more in U.S.A.

In 2009 the Italian movie “Due vite per caso/One life maybe two”, which soundtrack comprises three Father Murphy songs, with the band acting in a scene as itself during a live performance, appeared at Berlinale Festival

(Berlin) Open Roads Festival (New York City) Buenos Aires Film Festival (Argentina), Milano film Festival (Italy) and Maremetraggio Trieste (Italy).

Warmly embraced in the recent years also by both the UK and the US press, winning fans like Julian Cope, Deerhoof and Michael Gira, Father Murphy has just released a new EP, titled “No room for the weak”, four songs that are at the same time a confirmation and a step forward. Lyrically, the EP deals with the dubious joys of mysticism, convoluted theology, enlightenment through self-inflicted pain and a perilous, twisted way to an equally twisted idea of salvation. Musically, it is another exercise in what the guys at Aquarius Records (San Francisco) described as “woozy and ominous, dreamy and dense, a glorious deathlike dirge”. This new songs are just pure Father Murphy, off kilter and dramatic in their own peculiar way. No Room For The Weak have been released by Aagoo Records in September

2010 on 10’’ (distributed by Revolver USA, Cargo Uk and P*dis Japan) while Boring Machines Records(ITA), CD format, in october.

 

For promoting the new release Fr. Murphy did tour as hell, 137 shows in a year.

They started in september 2010 with a 6 weeks tour in Us and canada, opening for Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu, for then going back to Europe to join NO MAN IS booking agency, and play many other gigs in Uk, Belgium, France, Poland, Czech Republic and Italy (opening for Liars, Carla Bozulich, ZU Mahjongg… among the others).

The “No room for the weak” tour then continued till may 2011, going through Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Scandinavia (opening for Thulebasen, DK), Russia (together with SWANS and THE EX at SKIF Festival in St. Petersbourg!) and Uk again.

Between august and september they joined Us band SIC ALPS for doing another 3 weeks tour around Western Europe, with a special show in Brussels opening for THE EX, for then ending in Italy with a peculiar show in a theater in Pistoia, nearby Florence, where they did a live soundtrack for « The Cabinet of Dr. caligari », german silent movie from the 20’s, together with a collective of filmakers and musicians (Jeaulosy Party, Rico/Uochi Toki, Alessandro Fiori, In Flux).

 

I hope to hear from you asap.

 

Regards.

 

 

Alain

beginning of October and mid November 2012.

http://www.andreaparkins.com/

Please get back to me very soon.

Andrea Parkins is composer, sound/installation artist and electroacoustic
musician who engages with interactive electronics as a
compositional/performative process, and explores strategies related to
Fluxus’ ordered, yet ephemeral activities. An integral participant of the
New York sound art and experimental music scene, and worldwide – she is
especially known for her uniquely gestural/textural approach to her
electronically-processed accordion and customized live sound processing.
Her laptop electronics and Fender-amped accordion create a sonic field of
lush harmonics, noisy concretized disruption, and soaring electronic
feedback.

As a sound artist and composer, Parkins' works includes electroacoustic
solo and ensemble pieces, dance and film scores, electronic music works,
and multi-diffusion installations featuring amplified objects that are
found or made. This work has been presented at the Whitney Museum of
American Art, The Kitchen, Diapason, and Experimental Intermedia; and arts
spaces/festivals worldwide, including Mexico City’s First International
Sound Art festival; Unsound in Krakow; NEXT in Bratislava; and Cyberfest
2011 in St. Petersburg. Parkins also records and performs internationally

artist/composer's work, and she was commissioned to create a live dance
score for The Body Cartography's new work, Symptom. She also toured
throughout Europe with Portuguese choreographer Vera Mantero who

Russia. She also created sound for digital artist Yael Kanarek’s video,
"Heavenly, So Long" that was exhibited at NYC’s Flux Factory. Currently,
she is touring in support of her recent Important Records CD, FAULTY
(BROKEN ORBIT). On an ongoing basis, Parkins develops her primary
performance project, a series of interactive audio/visual works inspired
by Rube Goldberg’s circuitous machines. Her work has received support from

BOOKING OFFER: KNUCKLEDUSTER

Posted in Uncategorized on mai 15, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for KNUCKLEDUSTER.

http://kdmusic.org/info.html

They're available between 5th and 12th October 2012.

Knuckleduster, the trans-atlantic collaboration of electronica/sound
artist Robert Lippok (Germany) and trans-cultural pioneer Debashis Sinha
(Canada/India) began through a mutual fascination with sound and sound
production. Based on long discussions in Toronto, Berlin, and via
internet, Lippok and Sinha created a foundation for music making based on
the respect of each other’s work. Their first collaboration, a live
concert in Toronto in 2007, went so well that they decided to make the duo
a continuing international performance project. Their first CD, Nuukoono,
was recorded in Berlin at the famous Studio P4 and at Studio Bleibel by
Bernd Jestram of Tarwater.

Robert Lippok is on the bleeding edge of the Berlin minimal electronic
scene with releases on some of the most innovative labels in existence
today. He is a founding member of To Rococo Rot, now twelve years old and
internationally known, bringing conceptual art, installation, and
improvisation to the post-rock scene, refining and perfecting their
concept of instant composition. As a solo artist, he has created sound
installations and performed internationally, releasing recordings to
critical acclaim on the Monica, Staubgold and Raster-Noton labels.

Debashis Sinha has been involved with the world music scene in Canada for
over 10 years, garnering multiple Juno nominations along the way. Deeply
trained in traditional rhythmic systems from various cultures, Sinha has
begun to turn to the world of improvisation and sound art to further
explore his traditional percussion instruments. Through questioning the
context of world music, he has found a voice that uses traditional
techniques coupled with extended techniques of western improvisation and
electronics.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Regards.

Alain
