Known for his work in The Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX, Burmese and his current role as Lydia Lunch’s musical director, Weasel Walter initially founded Cellular Chaos as a San Francisco Bay area improvisational instrumental combo, but with a move to Brooklyn, the name was repurposed to christen an entirely new act. The band headed in an equally intense and cathartic direction, but became more song-oriented with the addition of frontperson Admiral Grey, renowned New York City writer, actress and performance artist. Grey’s surreal narratives of trauma, apocalypse, and abuse weave furiously through angular, masterfully expressed arrangements, propelled by the muscular drumming of Marc Edwards – and alternately planted and uprooted by the spinning foundation of double bassist and composer Shayna Dulberger on electric bass.

Both musicians have been active in the scene of improvised and experimental music for twenty years, both have been astounding their audiences with their intricately developed playing manners. Now they joined their forces on this album.
eRikm, based in Marseille, started his musicial activities as a virtuoso turntablist in early 90s, gradually shifting his focus to more abstract music, sometimes abandoning turntables or substituting them with minidiscs or CD-turntables. His recent record output includes collaborations with Catherine Jauniaux, Norbert Möslang, Michel Doneda, Jerome Noetinger, dieb13, as well as solo albums Variations Opportunistes, Sixpériodes, Stème, Lux Paylettes, Transfall and the most recent Select Archive. Ecotone is his third project for Mikroton, following Stodgy and Mal Des Ardents / Pantoneon.
Martin Brandlmayr, from Vienna, is known for his inhuman capability of overprecise percussion playing which at the same time retain a deep humanity and produce a beautiful sound. He’s the driving force behind the superb trio Radian, who have released records on Mego and Thrill Jockey, the improvising trio Trapist with bassist Joe Williamson and Martin Siewert, the longrunning legendary quartet Polwechsel (along with Werner Dafeldecker, Michael Moser and Burkhard Beins), and other projects like Autistic Daughters (with Dean Roberts and Werner Dafeldecker) and Kapital Band 1 (with Nicholas Bussmann). Ecotone is his second project for Mikroton, following El Infierno Musical quintet’s album with Christof Kurzmann, Ken Vandermark, Eva Reiter and Clayton Thomas.

ROYAL TRUX from Washington DC, like LOOP are indebted to classic garage and psych, at least instrumentally. Vocally, Jennifer Herrema’s voice is akin to Betty Davis which acts as counterpoint to Neil Michael Hagerty’s which lies somewhere between Beefheart and Johnny Thunders.

QUJAKU are a Japanese psychedelic band formed in 2013 and based in Shizuoka, Japan. Their music is gothic dark shoegaze, which reminds you of The Horrors, but it also contains emotional expressions that Japan uniquely has, leading you to feel Scandinavian post rock like Sigur Ros. Aesthetic but also destructive, roar but also silenthce, QUJAKU are a rare newcomer that has two opposite elements at the same time. They released their debut album, ‘ZyouK’,from So I Buried Records in October 2015 and a new EP, ‘Keiren’, in April 2016, heading to deeper psychedelia.

QUF is a duo influenced by the music of John Cage (electronics, experimentations, toy piano…) and noise where the lyric voice of Christina is the most important element ! Diamanda Galas is not far but also Meredith Monk. To hear with eyes and to see with ears !

Cartouche » is a multi-faceted project between eRikm and Natacha Muslera
“Cartouche” exists since May 2010 and carries out concerts (electronics and voice), performances and installations, electroacoustic pieces and radiophonic creations.The experimentations of the Natacha Muslera + Erikm  duo give us a glimpse of the
affinities that are possible between the disciplines of voice and turntablism once theyhave been freed from their repetitive ruts in the articulation of an abundant, organic, and surgical dialogue,strengthened by a capacity for reception and reaction that characterizes the work of these two virtuosos, where the extreme sensitivity of fingers meets the plasticity of voice.

Traveling the length of the giant Chinese South-North Water Transfer Project Antoine Boutet makes meditative recordings of the strange landscapes it has created. Scored with live music, this movie depicts the widely discussed project that -in despite of the omnipresent government propaganda for the project (including banners proclaiming “Making China more beautiful!”), has the citizens suffering the consequences less than impressed.
During this special screening of the film musicians Andy Moor and Yannis Kyriakides will perform a live soundtrack to this filmic exploration of water on the move.

Kim Myhr is a prominent voice on the Norwegian experimental music scene, both as a composer and as a guitarist. Myhr has released two solo records: Bloom on Hubro (2016) and All your limbs singing on SOFA (2014,) both widely acclaimed. Myhr is an active composer, writing for chamber ensembles, electroacoustic settings and for various dance and theatre projects. He is also member of MURAL (with Jim Denley and Ingar Zach) and Circadia (with Tony Buck, Davis Stackenäs and Joe Williamson).
Lasse Marhaug has been a fixture in Norwegian experimental music for the last 25 years, with hundreds of releases, collaborations and projects. He composes music for film, theatre, dance and installations, and is also a writer, magazine publisher and visual artist. His favourite astronaut is Michael Collins.

Formed in Osaka, Japan in 2002, Afrirampo is a rock band comprised of two members; ONI(Vocal, Guitar) and PIKA(Vocal, Drum). Their music mixed with primitive sound, bound up with mind-blowing performance, have created an international stir. In 2003, they launched their debut album « A », followed by few albums including « URUSA IN JAPAN » from Sony’s imprint Ki/oon Records in 2005. They announced to split in 2010, and in the year after, an album « NEVER ENDING AFRIRAMPO »(a CD/DVD set, Ki/oon Records) containing a live recording from their final show was released. In March 2016, after six years since their break-up, they are back together to present the newborn Afrirampo.

All the best.
