MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA
Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV) is a live acoustic/electronic improvisational group formed in Rome, Italy, in 1966. Over the years, its members have included Alvin Curran, Richard Teitelbaum, Frederic Rzewski, Allan Bryant, Carol Plantamura, Ivan Vandor, Steve Lacy, and Jon Phetteplace.
They were early experimenters with the use of synthesizers to transform sounds: a 1967 concert in Berlin included a performance of John Cage’s Solo for Voice 2 with Plantamura’s voice transformed through a Moog synthesizer. At the end of the 1960s, they took part in the group Lo Zoo, founded by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. They also used such « non-musical » objects as amplified panes of glass and olive oil cans, and their performances achieved notoriety in Italy for their ability to generate riots. They are active as a group to this day in addition to their individual work as composers – most recent MEV performance by Alvin Curran, Richard Teitelbaum, and Frederic Rzewski at Bard College in 2012.

LUCA FORCUCCI
As a composer, artist, writer and researcher, Forcucci observes the perceptive and dynamic properties/relations of sound and space. The field of possibilities is explored in music and art as experience. In this context, he is interested in perception and consciousness. He conducted his research at GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) in Paris, and at the Brain Mind Institute in Switzerland. His artworks are presented worldwide on a regular basis (Biennale of Sao Paulo, Akademie der Künste Berlin, MAXXI: Museum of XXI Century Arts Rome, Rockbund Museum Shanghai, Haus der Elektronischen Künste Basel, Présences Electroniques Festival Geneva) and are in the collections of the Swiss National Library and Swatch. He has received awards from the Swiss Federal Office for Culture, Pro Helvetia, Swatch, Cité Internationale des Arts Paris, and he was nominated in the arts at the World Technology Summit in New York.

ERIC THIELEMANS
Genre crossing/ blending percussionist/ drummer working from a classically trained ear via jazz drumming, free improv and all sorts of contemporary musics towards his own realms in music and performance. Being a teenager in the mid eighties of the 20th century, for him, as for many of his generation, multi disciplinarily is an evidence.
From his first moments of active musicianship up until now, Eric Thielemans always has been interested in performing arts, theatre, poetry and dance. Consequently he has worked with a wide range of (sound and visual) artists, performers and dancers.

ZENI GEVA + KK NULL
ZENI GEVA is a Japanese prog-hardcore band, led by singer and guitarist KK Null, one pioneering group of innovators and legends.
ZENI GEVA was founded in Tokyo in 1987 and quickly found a dedicated fan base in Europe and the US. Their popularity in the west enabled ZENI GEVA to be one of the first Japanese bands to tour in Europe and the US with bands like Bastro, Crash Worship, Dazzling Killmen, Don Caballero, Eyehategod, Melvins, Neurosis, Pain Teens, Shellac and more.
he experimental multi-instrumentalist K.K. Null was born in Tokyo, Japan, on September 13, 1961. He began as a guitarist, but soon added composer, singer, electronic wiz, drummer, and even « Butoh » dancer to his impressive musical resumé. Null joined the noise/prog rock outfit Ybo2 in 1984, issuing several albums and EPs throughout the remainder of the decade. From there, Null produced albums for other artists, created his own record label (Nux Organization), and played with others: with the self-described « progressive hardcore trio » Zeni Geva, John Zorn, Steve Albini, the Boredoms’ Seiichi Yamamoto, Jim O’Rourke, Merzbow, Fred Frith, James Plotkin, Keiji Haino, Otomo Yoshihide, Jon Rose, Atau Tanaka, Zbigniew Karkowski, and Philip Samartzis, as well as supporting such artists as Sonic Youth and Mike Patton on tour.

BLIND IDIOT GOD
Blind Idiot God is Andy Hawkins on guitar and Tim Wyskida (Khanate) on drums. Gabe Katz, the band’s original bass player is featured on the album but moving forward Will Dahl is the band’s new bass player live and in the studio. Touring in support of the new album is planned for 2015. “Moving from the studio to the stage is always great,” Hawkins explains, “the music opens up dynamically, both performance wise and sonically. The human ear has a much greater dynamic range than any recorded medium and we excel at taking full advantage of that fact.” The band has shared the stage with artists like John Zorn (a collaborator who released their third album on Avant Records), Helmet, Black Flag, The Minutemen, Sonic Youth, Die Kreuzen, Don Caballero, Jesus Lizard, Napalm Death, HR, Eekamouse among many others.

LEO WELCH
Leo “Bud” Welch Sr. was born in Sabougla, Mississippi in 1932. Bud picked up a guitar for the first time in 1945. Bud and a cousin would sneak and play the guitar while the actual owner of the guitar (Bud’s older cousin R.C. Welch) was away working. As he became confident in his ability to play guitar, Bud was caught red handed by the owner of the guitar, playing the forbidden to touch instrument. Bud’s older cousin was so impressed with his playing that he gave Bud free reign to continue playing the guitar. By 1947 at age 15, Bud could play well enough to perform publically and garnered the blessing of many elder guitar players. Bud was offered an audition by BB King but could not afford the trip to Memphis. Bud played the Blues continuously until 1975, at that time he converted to playing mostly Gospel, with the Sabougla Voices, which consisted of his sister and a sister-in-law. Bud also played with the Skuna Valley Male Chorus. Bud earned his living by carrying a chain saw up and down the hills and hollows of North Mississippi, logging for 35 years. Leo does not believe that Blues is the devil’s music but a way of expressing the highs and lows of one’s life through song. Bud had played his guitar for close family and friends for over 65 years and remained under the radar, undetected by the vast majority of Blues Aficionados, until April 19, 2013 after being secretly recorded performing at the 50th birthday of his now manger . Leo “Bud” Welch has taken the listening musical world by storm. Leo’s debut album “Sabougla Voices” was released January 7, 2014 just two months before his 82nd birthday and his sophomore album “I Don’t Prefer No Blues” was released on March 24, 2015 just two days after his 83rd birthday.

Thank you for reading.

I hope to hear from you if you are interested in setti,g up a concert for one of these artists.

All the best.

KING’s QUEER
King’s Queer : restless Post Punk, musical hybrid, outcast duet, voices and machines, feelings and sensation explorers, from heart -warm to desperation.
Their gigs may be best described as perfomative, eclectical and empowering parties . In their already 6 years of existence, they did hundreds of tour dates in France, Switzerland, Deutschland, Germany, Belgium, Canada and french Polynesia. From a musical point of view, King’s Queer is all about original creations, electro tweakings and magnetical sequences inspired by artists such as Lou Reed, The Velvet Undergound as well as milestones song writers from the disco-pop era.
On stage, King’s Queer turns out to be an thrilling and burning live moment where the audience is in for a roller-coaster hell of a ride. In short, that’s a REAL show.

JEAN DELOUVROY
Jean Delouvroy is an independent composer/producer
based in Brussels. His instruments are guitar and piano.
He composes contemporary classic, experimental,
electronics, stoner, psychedelic, dark ambient, minimal, drone, film music, guitar scapes, trance.

VOX BIGERRI
There is a strong tradition of polyphonic singing in the regions of Bigorre and Bearn in the southwest of France, but until recently it has remained largely undiscovered. The originality of the Bigorre/Bearn polyphonic tradition is to be found in its unique musical rhythms, together with a vocal technique which
creates fascinating harmonics and vibrations, forming a holistic sound in which three, four or five voices create a fusion.

JASON VAN GULICK
Jason Van Gulick is one of the most inventive drummers on the contemporary music scene, he processes the sounds of his drum set in real time providing an explosive mixture of wild rhythms and abstract soundscapes. He has performed with Carla Bozulich/Evangelista, Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O)))), Chris Corsano, N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), Y.E.R.M.O. and the interdisciplinary Collective, DEGA!

Thank you very much for reading. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

Regards.

Alain

Availability: 19th November + 2016
Territory: Belgium

HOUSEWIVES
Housewives are a London based 4-piece defined by their fierce originality and constant sense of experimentation. Since forming in 2013 they have quickly become one of the most respected bands on the UK underground scene with a strong following now devoted to their spell binding and blisteringly intense live shows. Having been championed by the likes of Charles Hayward and Thurston Moore, their acerbic no wave sound will manifest on debut album ‘Work’, released in November 2015

HEAD OF WANTASTIQUET
HEAD OF WANTASTIQUET (USA/DE) is Paul LaBrecque’s (Sunburned Hand of the Man, Astral Blessing) solo shaman body melt unit.
The music is a thoroughly Modern/NOW take on the early minimalist
experiments of John Cale’s Sun Blindness tapes, projected through a prism that refracts into hallucinatory images of Andrew Wyeth and Caspar Friedrich, the temporal finality of Altamont and Kenneth Anger, the bare feet grounded to the soil of Träd Gräs och Stenar, and the beautiful desolation of Doc Boggs’ early 20th century Appalachian hollers.

WOVEN SKULL
Music made in a haunted wood under a sacrificial moon in the wilds of Leitrim. Woven Skull are a three piece from Ireland who use mandola, guitar, drums, pedals, chimes, bows, saws and more to create their own brand weird of experimental psychedelic drone music.

MESSER CHUPS
Messer Chups is an experimental band from St. Petersburg, Russia. The band was founded by Oleg Gitarkin who had previously performed with Oleg Kostrow under the name of Messer für Frau Müller. Messer Chups’ music often features a foundation of surf drums on which they build collages of samples from odd sources, like jazz, east European animation soundtracks, and American B-pictures. On top of that they lay guitar solos and theremin.

SEX JAMS
Sex Jams are straight out of Vienna’s throbbing underground DIY scene, and spit out spontaneous bursts of pure pop and overdriven noise-fuzz capable of disarming the mightiest of opposition. Forthcoming album, Trouble, Honey, is a record that brings together in unholy matrimony the pop panache of Blondie with moments that could be Dinosaur Jr at their fuzzy finest.

LAURA CANNELL
Laura Cannell takes ancient music and adds a very unique avant garde twist unlike anyone else. As her audience continues to grow, she has caught the ear of many critics and musicians – Laura plays in the trio Oscillanz with Charles Hayward (This Heat) and Ralph Cumbers (BassClef) and has been remixed by Hacker Farm, Kemper Norton, Luke Abbott, Karen Gwyer and more.

Thank you for reading.

All the best.

TELEVISION PERSONALITIES
The Television Personalities are an English rock group with a varying line-up. The only constant member is singer–songwriter Dan Treacy (born 19 June 1960), who uses the band as a vehicle for his music. The band’s first release (January 1978) was the single « 14th Floor »/ »Oxford Street W1 », while their second, the EP Where’s Bill Grundy Now? features one of their best-known songs, « Part Time Punks ».

THE ONLY ONES’ PETER PERRETT
Peter Perrett is an English singer-songwriter, best known as the frontman of the 70’s rock band The Only Ones who split up in 1982 and reformed in 2007.
The Only Ones are an English rock band, initially active in the late 1970s. They were associated with punk rock, yet straddled the musical territory in between punk, power pop and hard rock, with noticeable influences from psychedelia.
The Only Ones were reformed in 2007 after their biggest hit « Another Girl, Another Planet » was used in a Vodafone ad campaign in 2006, and the same song was used as the intro theme to Irish DJ Dave Fanning’s radio show. The band completed a comeback UK tour in June 2007, and continued touring throughout 2008 and 2009. New material was recorded in 2009 and played live, but has yet to be released

NANA VASCONCELOS
Nana Vasconcelos  was born in Recife on the Northeast Coast of Brazil and, even after twenty years of playing throughout the world, his roots are apparent in everything he plays.
After playing in every imaginable context from symphonic orchestras to street bands in his hometown, Nana moved to Rio de Janeiro and began to play with one of Brazil’s greatest singers, Milton Nascimento. In 1970 the Argentinian tenor player Gato Barbieri was in Rio and invited Nana to join his band. They played in New York and then toured Europe, starting at the Montreux Jazz Festival where Nana caused a sensation. When the tour finished Nana decided to stay in Paris. During his time in the city he made his first recording, Africa Deus. Nana returned to Brazil and recorded his album, Amazonas, and began a collaboration with guitarist Egberto Gismonti that lasted for eight years and produced three albums of duets. Back in New York he formed Codona with Don Cherry and Collin Walcott, as well as touring and recording with Pat Metheny’s band. Since 1975 Nana has recorded with everyone from B.B. King to Jean Luc Ponty to the Talking Heads, but has never allowed himself to become a studio musician. His contributions to each project are special and go beyond the usual role allotted a percussionist.

TOMMY CASTRO AND THE PAINKILLERS
Born in San Jose, California in 1955, Tommy Castro first picked up a guitar at age 10. He came under the spell of Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield and other blues rock players early on. As he
got older, Castro moved forward by investigating the past, falling in love with the blues guitar work of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Elmore James and singers like Ray Charles, Wilson
Pickett and James Brown. By his late 20s he was playing in a variety of San Francisco-area blues and soul bands.

DEAN McPHEE
Solo electric guitarist Dean McPhee’s spacious, hypnotic and echo-laden music brings together a broad range of influences including Medieval Folk, Dub, Post Rock, Kosmische Musik, Desert Blues, Moroccan Trance and Ambient/Drone, but his singular approach to the instrument is very much his own. Having developed his unique style of playing over years of experimentation and improvisation, his critically acclaimed releases on the Blast First Petite, Folklore Tapes, World in Winter and Hood Faire labels and mesmerising live performances have cemented his reputation as being one of the most original and distinctive musicians in the current crop of post-Fahey guitar soli. « On the Wire” presenter and legendary champion of unusual and esoteric music Steve Barker recently described Dean as being “definitely one of the leading contemporary guitar stylists in the UK, and in the world” and his 2015 album « Fatima’s Hand » has been widely praised by sources such as The Wire, Uncut, Record Collector, Music OMH, DOA, Drowned in Sound, MOJO Magazine and ATTN: Magazine.

RACKER&ORPHAN
Racker&Orphan is a duo consisting of two of the UK’s most enigmatic and artful experimentalists, Sam McLoughlin (N Racker/Sam and the Plants) and David Chatton-Barker aka David Orphan (Folklore Tapes). Using handmade instruments and analogue projections, their live performances are absorbing and unpredictable. Racker&Orphan’s  10″ album « Sounds of Insects » was released earlier this year on the Hood Faire label and is a direct homage to an old Scholastic/Folkways field recordings LP of the same name by Albro T. Gaul and found Racker&Orphan using a mysterious blend of specialised field recording and sympathetic reassembling to create mysterious and absorbing insectile soundscapes. Sam and David were recently seen supporting Richard Skelton at St John’s Church in London, performing improvised music and live projections using organic materials and microscopic film as part of a live performance of Rob St John’s « Surface Tension » project. Earlier this year « Sounds of Insects » received a great four star review from Record Collector and was described by « We Need No Swords » blog as being « one of the most diverting and interesting releases of the year ».

ROB CLOUTH
With previous releases on Traum Schallplatten and Detroit Underground as well as the recent Clockwork Atom EP on Leisure System, Rob connects the dots between glitchy IDM and artful techno, somewhere between the beautiful melodies of Jon Hopkins and the high-intensity beats of Autechre. In addition to productions under his own name, Rob previously worked under the name Vaetxh and has created multiple pieces of experimental hardware and software, as well as designing all of his own visuals.

COOLHAVEN
Coolhaven is a band based on the principle of diabetics. Their music is inspired by the disturbance of balance between centrifugal and centripetal energies. The first and last thing Coolhaven has is some kind of concept or idea about how the noises they make should sound. They think the idea of making ‘good’ music is kind of obsolete.
There could be improvisation (utterly and totally composed) involved, or badly played dutch tribal polka blues. It’s the moment that counts, not fame or respect from future generations of cd-listeners.

JEAN-MARC FOUSSAT
Born Jean-Marc Foussat in 1955 in Oran, this is first with the guitar in the mid 70s I created several experimental groups as ephemeral to gradually prefer the synthesizer & the ruled paper, taking as much fun to traffic the tape in solitaire.En 81, I finish « Abattage », my first solo record that will ultimately published in March 83. Ten years later, thanks to « Marteau Rouge », I take the path the stage and the public with my analog synthesizer along with Makoto Sato on drums and Jean-François Pauvros on electric guitar.
In 2005 I met Sylvain Guérineau, saxophonist, who was born « Aliquid » which gradually will lead me to play more regularly with many actors improvised music.

PEKKO KAPPI
I, Pekko, am a player of Jouhikko – the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre. My music has been described like this: « In his hands the rough sound of weaved horsehair strings are swaying between the foul and lovely – dirty and pure. The old songs of unwritten tradition, timeless and dark stories mediates in his mouth. »
I got involved with the Jouhikko in 1997 in the Ala-Könni–institute of Kaustinen. Ever since I’ve been studying the Jouhikko tradition with the master players of Finland, Estonia and Sweden. I’ve been performing with different Jouhikkos in diverse ensembles, theatre productions etc. My debut recording, EP “Kalastajia ja kaivostyöläisiä » was released in 2001. I also co-produced the album “Hiien Hivuksista – Jouhikko Music from Finland » (2003). My first full-length album “Jos ken pahoin uneksii » was released autumn 2007, and the next one, « Vuonna ’86 » is about to come out any second.

GORDON ASHWORTH
Gordon Ashworth is an American musician and sound artist whose primary field is experimental composition for string instruments, magnetic tape and field recordings. He has been heavily involved in the noise and experimental music underground since 2002 and has released dozens of drone, noise, folk and musique concrete recordings under the names Concern, Oscillating Innards, CAEN, Riverbed Mausoleum, and now his real name. He has performed in over 25 countries and is a member of the extreme metal bandKnelt Rote.
Ashworth’s live performance focuses on tape manipulation of electro-acoustic drones and folk instrumentation, tempered by psychologically potent sounds of social environments. His field recordings are carefully edited documents of his job as a night taxi driver that accentuate a paradox of working a dangerous job in order to survive as an artist. The room grows into an intense sonic environment that instills feelings of being in countless locations at once, somewhere between privacy and social life, musical beauty and human ugliness, a full heart and a troubled mind. His debut full-length « S.T.L.A. » is a deep exploration of the fundamental elements of American folk music, musique concrete, modern classical and inexplicable emotions.
