Dear all, I’m booking some dates for PAUL METZGER / STANIER BLACK-FIVE & ZEUG GEZEUGT. PAUL METZGER (usa) Availability: tba announced in October (last minute dates!!!) Territory: Europe STANIER BLACK-FIVE & ZEUG GEZEUGT (New Zeeland/Australia) Availability: 14th September Territory: Belgium. They can play for a meal and some peanuts if available PAUL METZGER New solo recordings and quartet records out in 2013. The high and lonesome cosmic hobo from the USA. Since way back when Paul Metzger has been experimenting, playing his art-guitar complete with a crash cymbal mounted to its bottom and his distinct heavily modified 23 string banjo. In 2003 he went public playing out sets of his own music, part old time strung out blues and raga’s and part deep listening compositions that wind their way through you inner ear. This is not however the limit..what he can do with his instruments live also includes clangorous, rapidly punctuated percussive workouts that blow audiences away. He pulls the listener inwards and then takes them out the backdoor to experience the other. STANIER BLACK-FIVE & ZEUG GEZEUGT Australasian sound artists, Stanier Black-Five (New Zealand) and Zeug Gezeugt (Australia) are touring Europe this September to celebrate the release of their collaborative Body Waves album on the Entr’acte label ( The album is the product of an initial series of live performances in which Stanier Black-Five built soundscapes from recordings she made at the epicentre of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, which were transformed by Zeug Gezeugt to accentuate the lower frequency harmonics. On their 2013 European tour, they are proposing to make the final live performances of Body Waves, creating a vibroacoustic environment in which the audience is immersed in a visceral music that goes beyond the auditory system to be felt in the body. Body Waves has already attracted considerable interest both in Australasia and internationally. It was covered in the January edition of The Wire magazine and was the subject of a report on one New Zealand’s major television channels: Stanier Black-Five and Zeug Gezeugt are happy to play on a bill with other artists, possibly others on the Entr’acte label, or present a full programme in which each would also perform solo. Artist biographies Stanier Black-Five, aka Jo Burzynska, is a sound artist and writer based in Christchurch, New Zealand, who for the last 15 years has been actively involved with experimental music and sound art in the UK, Europe and New Zealand. Her audio work is largely based on the manipulation of her own environmental recordings, as well as found sounds, which she uses to create dense soundscapes that use sources such as the pounding rhythms of trains, and more recently the sounds of the earthquakes that have shaken her home city. Stanier Black-Five regularly performs her visceral musique concrete both in New Zealand and internationally, appearing on bills alongside the likes of Chris Watson, Jessica Rylan and Daniel Menche. Recent recording projects include the wine and sound installation, Oenosthesia created for Interferenze’s FARM2012 festival in Italy; a work exploring the natural reverb of disused cement silos for the UK’s Touch Radio and the musique concrete album, Avast! to be released on the Entr’acte label later this year. Zeug Gezeugt, aka Dr Malcolm Riddoch, has a background in science, communications and philosophy and has been actively involved in electroacoustic music performance for the last two decades. He currently lectures in Composition and Music Technology at WAAPA, Edith Cowan University where his music research interest is experimental electroacoustic improvisation and phenomenological method: An investigation of acousmatic listening and electronic transformation of soundscapes; notions of indeterminacy in composition and performance; the use of whole acoustic spaces in music performance; and electroacoustic improvisation as an embodied, intentional, temporalizing process. His medium is non-tonal, timbrally focused, musically organised sound and thematic dissolution is his musical theme. I look forward to hearing from you asap. Enjoy your week-end. Alain
