TESTA DI CAVALLO

The music band is composed by: a “foley-piano”, double bass and a singer.

The music of Testa di cavallo uses complex rhythmic compositions and a Piano filled with springs, sensors and micro switch, it is used here mainly as a percussive instrument.

The piano remains artisanal, raw , not wearing high technology.

The interior of the piano filled spring of all sizes and shapes also gives the project a very visual dimension.

GWSok was singer for over 30 years The Ex , legendary band in the middle of the experimental rock scene. He brings a punk – rock energy to Testa di cavallo declaiming his texts.

 

 

TREVOR WATTS/VERYAN WESTON

Veryan Weston* began working as a jazz pianist in London (1972) as well as playing at the Little Theatre Club. In 1975, he received a fellowship and residency at Digswell House in Hertfordshire where he co-founded and composed for Stinky Winkles and collaborated with visual artists including Stephen Cochrane. He also composes music for film, the most notable being with long-term friend and collaborator Lol Coxhill on Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio (1985). In the ’80s and ’90s, he worked internationally with the Eddie Prévost Quartet and Trevor Watts’ Moiré Music. Collaborations with Phil Minton have included the Ways duos, two choral projects, a quartet performing extracts from Joyce’s Finnegans wake, and 4Walls. Other duos include Jon Rose (EMANEM 4207), Caroline aabel (EMANEM 4048), Hugh Metcalfe, and a trio with John Edwards and Mark Sanders (EMANEM 4028, 4214, and 4205).

 

Trevor Charles Watts* is a jazz and free-improvising alto and soprano saxophonist. He is largely self-taught, having taken up the cornet at age 12 then switched to saxophone at 18. While stationed in Germany with the RAF (1958-63), he encountered the drummer John Stevens and trombonist Paul Rutherford. After being demobbed he returned to London.

In 1965 he and Stevens formed the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, which became one of the crucibles of British free improvisation. Watts left the band to form his own group Amalgam in 1967, then returned to SME for another stretch that lasted till the mid-1970s. Another key association was with the bassist Barry Guy and his London Jazz Composers’ Orchestra, association that lasted from the band’s inception in the 1970s up to its (permanent?) disbandment in the mid-1990s.

Though he was initially strongly identified with the avant-garde, Watts is a versatile musician who has worked in everything from straight jazz contexts to rock and blues. His own projects have come increasingly to focus on blending jazz and African music, notably the Moiré Music ensemble which he has led since 1982 in configurations ranging from large ensembles featuring multiple drummers to more intimate trios. He has only occasionally recorded in freer modes in recent years, notably the CD /6 Dialogues/, a duet album with Veryan Weston (the pianist in earlier editions of Moiré Music). A solo album, /World Sonic/, appeared on Hi4Head Records in 2005.

 

JASON VAN GULICK

Next paths traced by Fritz Hauser , Lê Quan Ninh or Chris Corsano, he said through his solo projects, its place as a percussionist and musician in their own right.

For 20 years, he has built a diverse musical background. From the hardcore of extreme metal and post- rock, it passes through improvisation and finds its feet in the electro-acoustic experimentation, letting today influenced by contemporary music.

He also works regularly as a composer and musician on stage for theater, one of those taking the project one month touring Canada in November 2011 .

He composed the soundtrack for the exhibition by artists unground Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert Luxembourg contemporary art center Casino in collaboration with Stephen O’Malley ( December 12/janv 13).
