LEE RANALDO TRIO TO TOUR IN JUNE

Lee Ranaldo by Panos Georgiou 016MM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lee Ranaldo hits the road to Europe for the second time in 2016, with a clutch of brand new songs from his just completed new album Electric Trim, in a new acoustic/electric trio format with Spanish multi-instrumentalists Raul ‘Refree’ Fernandez (who produced the new record with Lee) and Cayo Machancoses. The album was recorded in New York City and mixed there and  in Barcelona and has contributions from The Dust (Steve Shelley, Alan Licht, Tim Luntzel), Nels Cline, Sharon Van Etten, Kid Millions and others. New tunes, new sounds and an exploratory new lineup in advance of the record’s fall release.

It’s time to wave 2015 goodbye, but not before paying tribute to all the good things who helped us going through the bad ones with a traditional yearly top and a playlist cooked with love by the Tippex team.  From the incredible discovery of a Young Marble Giant footage from 1980 to a bunch of brilliant new albums (Housewives, Pierre Bastien, The Chap), rediscoveries and reissues (As Mercenarias, Pip Proud, Bona Dish) books or unforgettable shows : let’s look back one last time over our shoulders to celebrate and share the things who moved us, excited us, surprised us and enlightened 2015.

PASCAL TIPPEX

As a Parisian (and this is probably the first time I call myself a Parisian although I have been living here for 30 years) I’m afraid the sad things outnumber the happy ones this year.

Here is what made my year though:

Albums:
Flavien Berger: “Léviathan
Thurston Moore: “The Best Day
Wand: “Golem
Jonathan Fitoussi et Clemens Hourrière: “Five Steps
Moxham & Halliday: “A know about Thing

One song: Girl Band “Why they hide their bodies under my garage
which reminds me of that old and amazing song by XTC “Complicated Game

Video: Sequences
This incredible footage of an 1980 show of Young Marble Giants

ALisonWyatt

Higlights: shooting a film with Jeff Mills in le Musée du Louvre on a closing day (oh the silence there…); the Barbican going crazy with Jeff’s symphonic version of “The Bells”; Young Marble Giants after-shows: a hotel room in Marseille with a couple of friends after Mimi festival and a month later on the Southbank Center rooftop featuring Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt; meeting Leee John from Imagination at Fête de la Musique!

ETIENNE TIPPEX

A couple of tracks and artists that I have been listening a lot this year:
all songs of “Cap Waller” by Bertrand Belin
“Halcyion Days” taken from Disappears great “Irreal” Record
Bonny –  Prefab Sprout
Goodnight Vienna – LFO
Mit Dir – Robert Görl
Fenster – Samson’s Theme
Low – David Bowie
“this is Nots” by NOTS
“Emocean” by Fenster

A couple of thing I enjoyed to do: producing the last Album of band Fenster “Emocean”, being on tour with NOTS and Disappears in Europe, attending Monkey Week Festival and staying a couple of more days in Cadiz – Spain and winning in an official game against the worldchampion table foosball player :)

JEFF MILLS GOES TO THE BARBICAN

I_jeffmills-wvv_odegandbynight_0094 - copie

Jeff Mills has collaborated with symphonic orchestras since many years and was the first DJ to perform and capture it on DVD for a wider audience.

It all began with the Montpellier National Orchestra, directed by Alain Altinoglu, in 2005 at Le Pont du Gard, France. The piece was called “Blue Potential” and had been arranged for orchestra by the young French composer Thomas Roussel.

In September 2012, Jeff Mills played a new version of this orchestral project, now called “Light from the Outside World”, to a sold-out Salle Pleyel in Paris with L’Orchestre National d’Ile de France, conducted by Christophe Mangou. “Light from the Outside World” includes Mills’ classics as “The Bells” or “Sonic Destroyer” adapted by Roussel.

“Light from the Outside World” was also performed at Casa da Musica in Porto, OdeGand Festival in Belgium, Melbourne Festival, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Tauron Nowa Muzyka festival in Katowice, Poland. The 2000 seats for the concert at The Barbican, London were sold out in 8 hours…

In 2013, Jeff Mills presented a new piece called “Where Light Ends”. French composer Sylvain Griotto is the arranger; the project premiered in St Brieuc and Rennes, France in October 2013, with l’Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne conducted by Darrell Ang.

The piece was also performed with L’Orchestre National d’Ile de France in Paris and Ile-de-France region in November and December 2014 in a programm also including Tchaikovsky’ “Pathetic Symphony”.

Both “Where Light Ends” and “Light from the Outside World” are available for concerts. A third project, inspired by Holst’ “The Planets” premiered in July 2015 at Casa da Musica in Porto.

Other than the performances with orchestra, Jeff Mills has had collaborations with classicaly trained artists such as Kronos Quartet (Bach for “Red Hot +Bach” compilation), Kathleen Supove for Debussy and most recently with Mikhail Rudy.

All the performances for Jeff Mills and Symphonic Orchestras have always been sold-out shows. This shows the techno fans have been waiting for such opportunities, besides that fact classical audience can find new music.
