AKI ONDA + RAHA RAISSNIA
Visual Artist

After a long period of having the three areas of my practice-painting, drawing and filmmaking-as separate activities concerned with their own formal qualities and limitations, I have recently brought them on a level where the three interconnect closely. My films and paintings influence one another, and through creating drawings I investigate this influence.
In my most recent installations and performances I have incorporated composite projections of hand painted, hand manipulated slides and films onto layers of painted screens and panels. The resulting layers create a mesmerizing effect, making it difficult for the viewer to distinguish between what is the painting and what is the film image.
Most recently it is my films that influence my paintings, whereas before it was the paintings that initiated and shaped my filmmaking. My paintings brought abstraction to the vision I captured from the world on film and now the films are bringing elements of reality into my paintings.
Aki Onda is an electronic musician, composer, and visual artist. He is particularly known for his Cassette Memories project – works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by Onda over a span of two decades. Onda’s musical instrument of choice is the cassette Walkman. Not only does he capture field recordings with the Walkman, he also physically manipulates multiple Walkmans with electronics in his performances. In another of his projects, Cinemage, Onda shows slide projections of still photo images, shot by himself, as a performance or installation. Onda has collaborated with artists such as Michael Snow, Ken Jacobs, Paul Clipson, Alan Licht, Loren Connors, MV Carbon, Oren Ambarchi, Noël Akchoté, Jean-François Pauvros, Jac Berrocal, Lionel Marchetti, Linda Sharrock, and Blixa Bargeld.

Z’ev
Z’EV (born Stefan Joel Weisser, February 8, 1951) is an American poet,[1][2] percussionist,[3][4] and sound artist.[5][6] After studying various world music traditions at CalArts, he began creating his own percussion sounds out of industrial materials for a variety of record labels. He is regarded as a pioneer of industrial music.[7] In 1983, critic Roy Sablosky wrote: « Z’EV doesn’t just break the rules, he changes them. »[8] Journalist Louis Morra wrote in 1983: « Z’EV is a consummate example of contemporary performance art, as well as modern composition and theater. » and, « Z’EV realizes many of modernist art’s ultimate goals: primitivism, improvisation, multi-media/conjunction of art forms, the artist as direct creator. »[9] His work with text and sound has been influenced by Kabbalah, as well as African, Afro-Caribbean and Indonesian music and culture. He has studied Ewe (Ghana) music, Balinese gamelan, and Indian tala.[10]

LAHCEN AKIL

BOOKING OFFERS: ANTOINE CHESSEX, BLACK BOMBAIN, MATTHEW COLLINGS

Posted in Uncategorized on mars 26, 2014 by debloque

Dear all,

I’m booking some dates for ANTOINE CHESSEX, BLACK BOMBAIN, MATHEW COLLINGS

ANTOINE CHESSEX (Switzerland)
http://www.soundimplant.com/achessex
Availability: 11th, 13th, 14th June in The Netherlands + Belgium
In September and October: Europe

MATTHEW COLLINGS (UK)
http://matthewcollings.bandcamp.com/album/splintered-instruments
Availability: 10th and 11th November
Territory: Belgium

BLACK BOMBAIN (Portugal)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uprQ9xqK1YY
Availability: 5th and 6th June
Territory: Belgium

 

ANTOINE CHESSEX
The tenor sax came out a couple of minutes into the set and sixteen flavours of fury were suddenly unleashed on the crowd. Seriously, a microphone inside the tenor plus some effect pedals equals a sort of shuddering drone but the reed-biting squeals took the whole thing way beyond anything I’ve ever heard live; by the end of the set, there was a wild man on stage, tearing holes in the fabric of reality with his horn and daring anybody present to do more than simply gape in awe ».
live review from the japan tour 2008

Nobody plays the saxophone as abysmal as Chessex, when transforming his instrument into a black distorted foghorn by the use of circular breathing, amps and distorsion pedals.

MATTHEW COLLINGS
Tiny delicate moments of intimacy and all-consuming noise; the music of composer and sound artist Matthew Collings is textural, melodic and often sonically overwhelming. Spanning the divide between Steve Reich and avant-garde guitar music, Collings has already found considerable praise from the international community for his previous releases under the curious moniker.

BLACK BOMBAIN
Can a power trio change a city in 2010? Can a band in these times of doubt and uncertainty drag others from the comfort of their couches (and TV Parties of this world) into the chaos of stages run by infernal riffs? The answer is, probably yes. Black Bombaim have done more for Barcelos in the last years than its local symbol, the Rooster has done in decades of history, and now, with “Saturdays and Space Travels” they write their name with golden letters in an imaginary wall, the same wall that has the name of all that make Rock an unpredictable and more exciting universe.
Everyone knew that on stageBlack Bombaim, Black Bombaim were an explosive cocktail of demonic riffs and powerful hooks; what they didn’t knew was, even though after a promising debut EP, these guys from Barcelos would be able to confine in vinyl such a stoner and psychedelic discharge. From side A to side B there’s no time to breathe. There’s only time to pick up the shrapnel of unforeseeable explorations; where Ron Asheton and the Stooges take to the limit the chaos from the final disorder of “T.V. Eye”, where the Rock frees itself from decades and decades of rules and conventions. Can that way a power trio change a city in 2010? We don’t know, but we’re thrilled to get there, ridden by forbidden riffs and eternal feedback.

Thanks for reading.

I hope to hear from you asap.

All the best.

Alain

BOOKING OFFERS: TALIBAM!, COPPICE, BELCHSINGERSONGGRINDER

Posted in Uncategorized on mars 24, 2014 by debloque

Dear all, I’m booking some dates for TALIBAM!, COPPICE and BELCHSINGERSONGGRINDER TALIBAM! (USA) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J86ANQt2Sk Territory: Europe Availability: Betwwen 2nd June and 6th June COPPICE (USA) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExrisoqCwew Territory: Europe Availability: Between 28th September and 4th October BELCHSINGERSONGGRINDER (The Netherlands) http://belchsingersonggrinder.bandcamp.com/album/belch-rough-stuff http://www.youtube.com/belchkitchen Territory: Europe. Availability: on request from mid May 2014 onwards TALIBAM! Brooklyn duo Talibam! Are previously known for their avant-jazz, experimental rock leanings, ‘Puff Up the Volume’ sees Talibam! Turning their considerable talents towards an album of synth-pop-infused, comedy-soaked ‘No School’ Rap. Having collectively been in bands with members of Battles, TV on the Radio and Grizzly Bear, Matt Mottel and Kevin Shea have joined ‘Brooklyn’s Finest’ and made an album of hook riddled pop star bombast. COPPICE Coppice then are a curious and unusual duo in that they feel as if (to me at least) they exist as some kind of ongoing project that is developing in public, growing outward from a small collection of sounds, instruments and techniques that expand upon one another, building blocks of sound put together in increasingly interesting and complex ways to make new works, dismantled and then rebuilt again. the duo seem to revel in a particular, unusual and recognisable set of sounds they have made their own and its as if they take great joy in moulding these elements over and over again to discover new solutions with them. The results along the journey are all quite fine, but for me at least, it is when viewed as one long and developing body of work Coppice come into their own. BELCHSINGERSONGGRINDER Belchsingersonggrinder is an impressively warped one-man-noise-machine from Holland, who uses live tape manipulation, voice and mangled guitar to make for some very cool Thanks for reading. I hope to hear from you asap. Regards. Alain
