BOOKING OFFER: LUGANO FELL

Posted in Uncategorized on août 30, 2012 by debloque

Dear all,

I’m booking some dates for LUGANO FELL.

He’s available (also known as James Taylor) in mid January 2013.

Lugano Fell is the solo project of James Taylor, a founding member of UK
tech house duo Swayzak. After 12 years spent perfecting the pumping house
music of Swayzak (whose seminal album « Snowboarding in Argentina » has been
reissued in 2009), Taylor felt like trying something totally different,
quieter, and more detail-focused.
From the noisy (i.e. loud) and pulsating soundworld of Swayzak, Taylor has
sliced and spliced his way to a noisy (i.e. sound-based) and textural
soundworld. The music of Lugano Fell is made of unrelated sounds, found
sounds, prepared sounds, even sounds made with actual musical instruments
or salvaged from the media. These sounds – a part of which is treated
while others are left clearly identifiable – are arranged into short
pieces filled with images and action, but too concise and sharply edited
to be described as cinematic.
This record features diverse moods (walls of sound samples,
esthetically-sophisticated vacant spaces, a duet between a stuttering CD
player and a hesitating acoustic guitar). This music draws from sound
collage, experimental ambient electronica, noise music, and ready-mades.
It doesn’t force itself upon you; it’s there, physically present, and
suddenly it isn’t anymore. And it weaves sense like a spider weaves its
web, away from prying eyes, hiding behind flurries of sounds.

I hope to hear from you asap.

BOOKING OFFER: PAIN JERK

Posted in Uncategorized on août 23, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

In partnership with Lee Tusk I'm booling some dates for PAIN JERK.
Avaibility between 10th and 19th October

http://tuskfestival.com/artists/pain-jerk/

Tokyo’s Kohei Gomi began experimenting with home recording in the 1980s
and got so lost in extreme sonics that his output inevitably spilled out
into the wider world. By the mid-90s, Pain Jerk was one of the most
prolific and influential noise units operating out of Japan, hurling
maelstroms of chaotic chunder and deranged grime at anyone who could
handle the extremes.

Highly influential to noise communities in and outside his homeland, Pain
Jerk has graced international festivals across Europe and the US. In
recent years he’s been sought out by such equally prolific fanboys as John
Wiese for collaborations, and also released the excellent Super Relaxed cd
with Rock N Roll Jackie Stewart (who also just happens to be at TUSK
Festival with The Tenses). He also frequently performs with Toshiji Mikawa
and Fumio Kosakai of Incapacitants as noise supergroup Gomikawa Fumio.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER: THE TENSES

Posted in Uncategorized on août 22, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

In partnership with Lee Tusk I'm booking some show for THE TENSES.
They are available between 12th and 15th October.

http://tuskfestival.com/artists/the-tenses/

The Tenses is the duo of Oblivia and Ju Suk Reet Meate, stalwarts of the
legendary Los Angeles Free Music Society touchstone, Smegma.  Known to
their Portland, Oregon neighbours as Jackie and Eric Stewart, The Tenses
pare down Smegma’s sprawling collective mania to a duo of turntables,
vocals, guitar, and various toys, gadgets and small instruments,
invariably backdropped by their home-made video collages. (They also adopt
the monicker The Rodney Forest when they become a trio with the addition
of fellow Californian and LAFMS honcho Tom Recchion).

Eric seems able to draw a story from any instrument that falls under his
gaze, hinting at enigmatic plot trajectories and haunted intrigue, while
Jackie’s turntable technique is deceptively deep and encompassing – we’d
strongly recommend you also check Super Relaxed, her collaboration with
Tokyo noise monster Pain Jerk, and relish the bewildered aftermath of
Jackie and decks in full flight.

On stage, The Tenses ooze a charm and sleight of hand that makes the magic
they weave seem so simply honed, until you realise they’ve deftly
transported your mind to somewhere a thousand miles away.

I would like to haer from you as soon as possible.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER: JAAP BLONK + DJ SNIFF

Posted in Uncategorized on août 16, 2012 by debloque

Dear all,

I am booking some dates for DJ SNIFF + JAAP BLONK.
They are available from 4th December onwards.

http://soundcloud.com/djsniff/sets/jaap-blonk-dj-sniff

DJ SNIFF:  http://www.djsniff.com/

Takuro Mizuta Lippit (aka dj sniff) is a musician, curator and producer in
the field of experimental electronic arts and improvised music.

His musical work builds upon a distinct practice that combines DJing,
instrument design and free improvisation. He is interested in how a
mediated musical memory, from archival collections of vinyl records to
digitally captured sound events during a performance, can be used to
create a new sonic reality that emerges through the fleeting notion of the
« now. » This pursuit has led him to create customized instruments that
allow him to intuitively access and re-play these different temporalities
ingrained in our listening consciousness. His live performances range from
carefully constructed solo sets to improvisational groups with virtuosic
instrumentalists.

His curatorial work aims to present a global overview on new experimental
approaches to music, sound and performance. He is often involved in
facilitating the technical or conceptual development of the works that he
features, and his network is built from being an active artist in the
field. As Artistic Director of STEIM in Amsterdam, he has curated and
produced over 100 projects including large scale international festivals
and award winning art works.

Born in 1978, Mizuta Lippit spent most of his formative years in Tokyo. He
studied Art History and Philosophy at Keio University, where his
graduating thesis was on concepts of the frame and the sublime, based on a
critical reading of Kant, Derrida and Lyotard. During this time, he was
also active as a DJ in the underground electronic music scene and formed a
collective called smashTV productions which organized club events and
salon style gatherings. After professionally working as a translator,
researcher on alternative art spaces, DJ and construction worker, he moved
to New York to pursue graduate studies at NYU’s Interactive
Telecommunications Program where he received his Master’s degree in
Physical Computing and Interaction Design.

Since 2005 he has been involved with STEIM’s (Studio for
Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab. From 2007 on, he is
STEIM’s Artistic Director, guiding the institution’s creative output and
representing it’s activities through performing, curating and lecturing
around the world.

He has performed throughout Europe, Asia and The United States at various
venues and international festivals including Club Transmediale Berlin,
Warsaw Autumn, Japan Society NYC, The Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater
(REDCAT) Los Angeles, March Meeting Sharjah, and FLOW Festival Helsinki.
He has released 12 DJ mixes and 2 solo albums from labels in Lebanon and
the UK and his work has been reviewed in the New York Times, All About
Jazz, The WIRE and createdigitalmusic.com. He has received grants from
Tisch School of the Arts, Japan Agency for Cultural Affairs, Performing
Arts Fund NL (FPK), Amsterdam Arts Fund (AFK), and Dutch Consulates in
various countries.

He has musical projects with eRikM, Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, Astro Twin (Ami
Yoshida & Utah Kawasaki), Adachi Tomomi, Keir Neuringer, Raed Yassin,
Yutaka Makino, Paul Hubwebber, Future Fossils (Raoul van der Weide & Sanne
van Hek), Daysuke Takaoka, Mark Sanders and C. Spencer Yeh. In the past he
has had the honor to play with some of his heroes such as Evan Parker,
Otomo Yoshihide, Akira Sakata, David Toop, Martin Tetreault and Michel
Waisvisz.

JAAP BLONK: http://www.jaapblonk.com/

Jaap Blonk (born 1953 in Woerden, Holland) is a self-taught composer,
performer and poet.
He went to university for mathematics and musicology but did not finish
those studies.
In the late 1970s he took up saxophone and started to compose music.
A few years later he discovered his potential as a vocal performer, at
first in reciting poetry and later on in improvisations and his own
compositions. For almost two decades the voice was his main means for the
discovery and development of new sounds.
From around the year 2000 on Blonk started work with electronics, at first
using samples of his own voice, then extending the field to include pure
sound synthesis as well.
He took a year off of performing in 2006. As a result, his renewed
interest in mathematics made him start a research of the possibilities of
algorithmic composition for the creation of music, visual animation and
poetry.

As a vocalist, Jaap Blonk is unique for his powerful stage presence and
almost childlike freedom in improvisation, combined with a keen grasp of
structure. He performed in many European countries, as well as in the U.S.
and Canada, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa and Latin America. With the use
of live electronics the scope and range of his concerts has acquired a
considerable extension.

Besides working as a soloist, he collaborated with many musicians and
ensembles in the field of contemporary and improvised music, like Maja
Ratkje, Mats Gustafsson, Nicolas Collins, Joan La Barbara, The Ex, the
Netherlands Wind Ensemble and the Ebony Band. He premiered several
compositions by the German composer Carola Bauckholt, including a piece
for voice and orchestra. A solo voice piece was commissioned by the
Donaueschinger Musiktage 2002. On several occasions he collaborated with
visual computer artist Golan Levin.

Blonk’s work for radio and television includes several commissioned radio
plays.
He also makes larger-scale drawings of his scores, which are being exhibited.

He was the founder and leader of the long-standing bands Splinks (modern
jazz, 1983-1999) and BRAAXTAAL (avant-rock, 1987-2005). He also has his
own record label, Kontrans, featuring a total of 15 releases so far. Other
Blonk recordings appeared on Staalplaat, Basta and VICTO.

I hope to hear from you asap.

Regards.

Alain
