JASON VAN GULICK

Jason Van Gulick is one of the most inventive drummers on the

contemporary music scene. For more than a decade, he has used his

education as an architect to explode the foundations of drumming.

Maintaining a distance from all aesthetic, disciplinary or formal

limitations, he has developed his artistic approach in the confrontation

between the acoustic character of his chosen instrument and

architectural resonant spaces. He has performed with Carla Bozulich /

Evangelista, for many tour and share stage withStephen O’Malley (Sunn

O)))), Chris Corsano, N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), LÊ QUAN Ninh,

 

 

YOKOCOLA

Proto Punk, Psychedelic, Industrial, Experimental Rock, Kraut-Rock.

Think fierce punk tripping out on acid, or Space Ritual Hawkwind or a

wild night out in Rotterdam where they are from. They are like new

York’s No Wave cranked to the 21st century and their synth swooshes

added to the guitar crank gives them a twist all over their own.

 

 

MEREDITH MONK

MEREDITH MONK (b. November 20, 1942, New York, NY) is a composer,

singer, director/choreographer and creator of new opera, music-theater

works, films and installations. Recognized as one of the most unique and

influential artists of our time, she is a pioneer in what is now called

« extended vocal technique » and « interdisciplinary performance. » Monk

creates works that thrive at the intersection of music and movement,

image and object, light and sound, discovering and weaving together new

modes of perception. Her groundbreaking exploration of the voice as an

instrument, as an eloquent language in and of itself, expands the

boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that

unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which there are no words.

Over the last fifty years, she has been hailed as « a magician of the

voice » and « one of America’s coolest composers. » Celebrated

internationally, Monk’s work has been presented by BAM, Lincoln Center

Festival, Houston Grand Opera, London’s Barbican Centre, and at major

venues around the world. Among her many accolades, she was recently

named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Republic of

France and the 2012 Composer of the Year by Musical America. In

conjunction with her 50th Season of creating and performing, she was

appointed the 2014-15 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at

Carnegie Hall. In September 2015, Ms. Monk received the National Medal

of Arts from President Obama.

 

 

KEIJI HAINO

Stemming from the Antonin Artaud-inspired theatre milieu, since the

beginning of the ’70s Keiji Haino [1] explores such fields of music as

psychedelic, improvisation, minimalism, noise and drone. From 1973 until

2013 banned by the Japanese public broadcaster NHK, he co-founded such

ensembles as Fushitsusha, Vajra or Nijiumu, and has also collaborated

with artists as varied as i.a. Peter Brötzmann, Derek Bailey, Tatsuya

Yoshida, Pan Sonic, Merzbow or Jim O’Rourke. « Keiji Haino towers over

the Japanese underground: his colossally heavy guitar excursions

inspired a whole generation of psychedelic

rockers, but his omnivorous musical appetites have also seen him

collaborate with jazz musicians, branch out into DJing, and play an

entire gamelan orchestra single-handedly. There’s no knowing what to

expect from a Haino gig » – Time Out Tokyo »Keiji Haino lives among the

class of improvisers who roam so far from what we usually call form —

meaning, basically, rules — that they make you question whether what

they’re doing is music. » – New York Times

 

 

THE POP GROUP

The Pop Group’s return represents post punk provocation for a

contemporary era, a resistant continuation of dissentious intent that

refutes the nostalgic comfort of the old for a bracing, contrarian

engagement with the new.

Since reforming for a specially curated ATP festival in 2010 – at the

behest of Simpsons creator Matt Groening – the band have been

industrious in their reactivation. Laying the groundwork for the Citizen

Zombie recording sessions the band toured key international festivals

and played numerous gigs across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world

throughout 2010 and into 2014, a period in which the potency of earlier

years was refined and reignited.

 

L’OEILLERE

L’Œillère is a wild classical guitar soloist, whose long narrative

compositions mix contemporary music with heavy, percussive rock.

L’Œillère borrows as much from contemporary music, from the solidity and

linearity of its structures, as from the energy of rock and the modal

variety of jazz. Each of his pieces are composed for the classical

guitar, which he uses without effects or electronic post-production.

 

 

HALF JAPANESE

Half Japanese began in the late ’70s as a band of primitive outsiders,

breaking musical rules that founding brothers Jad and David Fair never

even learned. But it didn’t take them long to become influential

indie-rock journeymen. Since the mid-’80s, their albums have been

consistently solid and often spectacular. They’ve never stopped

following their own weird muse — primarily the heart-on-sleeve lyrics

and voice of Jad Fair, Half Japanese’s only constant member — but the

majority of their music has been reliably well-made.

 

 

LAETITIA SADIER SOURCE ENSEMBLE

Find Me Finding You, the new album from the new organization called the

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, manages to strike new chords while

touching familiar keys in the song of life. From its percolating opening

beat, Find Me Finding You locates new systems within the sound-universe

of Laetitia Sadier. When we hear synth lines diving, lifting and

drifting, unusual guitar textures, the plucked sound of flat wound bass

strings or the bottomless pulsing of bass pedals stepping out of the mix

with an exquisite vibrancy, this is the sound of the Source Ensemble!

This designation implies a new togetherness phase; alongside long-time

collaborators Emmanuel Mario and Xavi Munoz, keyboard and flutes parts

played by David Thayer were essential contributions, as well as further

keys, synths and electronics from Phil M FU and several intense guitar

sequences from Mason le Long.

 

 

Thanks for reading.

 

 

I look forward to hearing from you asap.

 

 

All the best.
