DANIELLE DE PICCIOTTO + ALEXANDER HACKE (E. Neubauten) German-American artist couple Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke lives and works in Berlin. Since 2001 both jointly develop audio and visual performances to always be staged in a new artistic and musical manner. Their work is always unconventional, versatile and intercultural.

Thanks to their experiments their works complement one another in a very special way, thus creating new forms. And thanks to their versatile musical and artistic oeuvre both are true all-rounders.

USNEA

Usnea formed in late 2011. After solidifying a line-up, they fine-tuned material for a debut record. The S/T debut was recorded at Haywire Studios with Fester (who also recorded records by Stoneburner, Nux Vomica, Atriarch, Burials, Knelt Rote, Rabbits, Spectral Tombs, etc). Adam Gonsalvez mastered the mammoth hour long four song session and Orca Wolf released the LP in February of 2013. The S/T LP features the first 2 songs clocking in at just over 30 minutes, an 11×22″

poster/lyric insert and a download code for the record tracks plus two extra songs (totaling almost an hour of music). Eternal Warfare released a cassette version of the S/T album containing all four songs in late 2013. Usnea embarked on a West Coast tour in May 2013 followed by a short tour to Dead Fest in Oakland later that August with Portland buddies Stoneburner and Bastard Feast. In January of 2014, Usnea recorded for a split 7” EP with Ruins co-released stateside by Halo of Flies Records and in Europe by Germany’s Twisted Chords Records. Work is almost complete on a 2nd full length LP, to be released by Relapse Records.

INVERLOCH

Melbourne, Australia’s Inverloch, featuring 2/4 of the legendary diSEMBOWELMENT pick right up where diSEMBOWELMENT left off close to two decades ago. Inverloch’s debut mini-lp ‘d.USK….Subside’ is nothing short of epic, featuring the slow atmosphereics mixed with bursts of pounding blast beats that erupt out of tranquil soundscapes that diSEMBOWELMENT first trademarked in the early 1990s. Percussion blasts, riffs buzz and vocals grunt overtop huge reverb drenched guitar melodies that fall like black rain, a metallic pummel that stumbles towards a seasick lumber, that turns the whole record into a crawling, lurching, plodding and downtuned dirge, that is one of the most powerful and beautiful pieces of crust/death/doom to come forth through stereo speakers in years.

PAAL NILSEN-LOVE + KEN VANDENMARK

When Paal Nilssen-Love and Ken Vandermark take the stage for two uninterrupted sets, you know there’s no chance they’ll take the easy route. They put themselves on the spot as a duet and as individual performers, asking telling questions about the way their instruments are played; where the boundaries are, sonically, expressively, physically.

Nilssen-Love is the epitome of a timekeeper. He can add a frighteningly precise, metronomic structure to the most wayward of off-road ventures.

His industrial, shotgun punches traded places with carefully directed ticks on the centres of cymbals, an expansive use of the large toms which had them sounding like kettle drums, and lightening-fast changes of sticks, mallets and brushes to build up dense atmospheric layers.

Vandermark can be trailing a stonking, punky minimalist stream then nail a classic, fast-moving jazz groove on tenor – his surprisingly unexpected take-off point for set two after an opening set where the roles of the brass, wind and percussion were defined and redefined through a gamut of unconventional strategies.

DOMINIC LASH + SETH COOKE

Cooke and Lash (there’s a duo name for you) serve up two quite tasty tracks, more (slightly) steady-state than much of what I’ve heard from Cooke prior to this, the album beginning with an intense electronic buzz/hum with sitar overtones. Dark, deep strokes obtrude from Lash’s arco, very strong and exciting. The piece fragments into juicy, globular strands of plucks, scrapes and rattles, all quite resonant and close-mic’d; one’s ears are right in the middle of the conflagration.

Surging, rough and uncompromising–good stuff. The second cut starts in a semi-similar area as did the first, a drone-y space with a seesaw pattern from the bass, Cooke spreading rich, granular noise over and under. Rather than fracturing, this piece kind of melts into a thick swirl of colors, mostly more muted electronics accented by pure bowed bass lines and portentous plucks, concluding with a feedback squall.

Excellent work.

NUSLUX, ARTTU PARTINEN, ANTTII TOLVI, AVARUS AVARUS Avarus are a band from Tampere, Finland. They were formed in 2001 by members of The Anaksimandros and Pylon and soon absorbed members of other Finnish bands. Avarus’ floating line-up has varied between 10 and

20 members, but has been mostly around 5 members lately.

Avarus are considered a key element in the Finnish psych folk scene which emerged in the early 2000s. Slowly they have been developing their own musical genre « beer trance ».

ARTTU PARTINEN

For many years, Arttu Partinen has been known as Amon Düde, but in recent times he has also performed under his own name. However, there are rumours that this tour might be an Amon Düde reunion tour. In his performances, he combines noise dynamics with slapstick moves. He often seems to struggle with his gear, surprising himself as well as the audience. As sound sources he uses found tapes, his own recordings, world music cassettes, nature sounds, human voice, processed live percussion etc.

NUSLUX

Roope Eronen has been working widely with underground culture in Finland since the year 2000: organizing international alternative music shows, playing experimental music (in groups Avarus, Pylon, Maniacs Dream, Kemialliset Ystävät and solo as Nuslux) and making comics.

Nuslux started in 2006 as an experimental electronic music project.

Nuslux has been going through many phases in his sound, starting from experiments with self made gear to his current use of analogue synths, tapes and loops. His interests are in the possibilities of limited gear and in exploring the deeper nuances and potential of seemingly random and naive sounds. Nuslux’s recorded music is often different from live performances. In his live shows he’s always improvising, but when recording he’s composing, multi-tracking and re-dubbing a lot. Nuslux has released one LP, thee 7″ EPs and many tapes and cd-rs.

ANTTI TOLVI

Antti Tolvi is a father, composer, performer, wanna be self-sufficiency , taiji teacher and more. Born in 1977. Lived first 19 year in farm west coast of Finland. Then moved to City (Turku) where little by little world started to open. Found first wind instrument, didgeridoo. Then free jazz (saxophone in Rauhan Orkesteri 2001->) came to picture, but at the same time Indian classical music started to sound very interesting.

Soon came trip to Varanasi and studying Indian classical music. Next was nature and taiji studies. After 10 years in Turku, moving back to countryside. Slowly from wild / chaos / free to more solo and minimalism world. Zen meditation came in. Children. Everything starts to come together. After 10 years back in countryside, everything starts from beginning. Didgeridoos sounds again great and interesting. Schlagers sounds better than ever, birds, wind, silence, harmony..

Antti is currently working whit long duration drone piece whit church organ, building sound installation from long pipes and blower, searching new worlds from analog synths and flying whit softest overtone clouds from grand piano.

THE STAR PILLOW

Music made by images, is made by ideas which chase each other, wich modulate themselves by repeating and changing their structure constantly they create a layer of sound ethereal and subtle; confortable and reasuring for a while, it explodes in a triumph of loops and experiments.

It’s a stream of thoughts that breaks everything, accompanying the listener to the discover of new sounds and sensations, a container for conveying emotions and get lost between suggestions and melodies.

TSEMBLA

Tsembla is the musical work of Marja Johansson, a Swedish-Finnish artist living and working in Turku, Finland. Utilizing a wide range of instruments, electronics, objects and samples, the music of Tsembla rides on waves of warped melodies, fluttering rhythms, abstract voices and mutating textures, crossbreeding the known and the imaginary.
