Dear all,

Territory: Europe

Availability: On request
Territory: Belgium

Arrington de Dionyso (b. January 4th 1975) makes trans-utopian world music for a world that exists in fever dreams and hallucinations. Using performance and visual art, he traverses the nameless territories held between surrealist automatism, shamanic seance, and the folk imagery of rock and roll. He clarified his eccentric brew of ecstatic lunacy and prophetic madness during his 15 year tour-of-duty with Olympia’s Old Time Relijun (1995-2009).
De Dionyso’s most recent project, Malaikat dan Singa, is a trance-punk outfit featuring bass clarinet, guitars, multiple drummers and his trademark wild vocals (multi-spectral harmonic throatsinging combined with grunts, yelps, and barks) often sung in Indonesian. Malaikat dan Singa translates as “Angels and Lions,” and de Dionyso’s lyrics (both Indonesian and any other language he chooses to ply) fiercely combine mythology and fantasy. As a band Malaikat dan Singa ultimately defies a clean translation gaining power by crossing boundaries — both linguistic and psychic.
Arrington tours constantly both with Malaikat dan Singa and as a versatile solo artist. His visual art has been featured in exhibitions in Italy, New York City, Washington DC and Portland, Oregon and published in Yeti magazine, Prism Index and The Stranger. Arrington has staged his 24-Hour Drawing Performance at a variety of gallery spaces and other unusual spaces throughout the globe, in which he combines musical performance and video screenings with a live drawing marathon.

In parallel with his activities as a guitar player for Ultraphallus, Y.E.R.M.O and the duo he forms with the poet Vincent Tholomé, Xavier Dubois takes a totally different direction with an instrumental album, entirely dedicated to the guitar. Xavier developed his own language in which he mixes compositions with improvisation, creating space for intimate melodies, not afraid of taking risks.
Sunset Gluts is an album on which folk, blues and experimental music come together, and it contains 16 mixed pictures, oscillating between impressionist beauty and cinematographic atmospheres. The songs, sometimes very short ones, follow each other like drawings in a comic book. Exploring alternately the electric guitar, the prepared guitar and the baritone ukulele, Xavier takes the listener on an internal journey where the ghosts of John Fahey, Marc Ribot or Fred Frith are summoned.

I really hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

All the best.
