ETIENNE JAUMET
(FR / Versatile)
Etienne Jaumet is the name behind the legendary French band Zombie Zombie, The Married Monk, The Tribute to La Monte Young (with Spacemen Three's Sonic Boom), to name just few of the bands he's played with. He plays sax with James Holden live band. When his henchman (Cosmic Neman) is not around beating on the drums for the band-beyond-the-grave, Zombie Zombie, Etienne Jaumet takes control of a spacecraft that only he can manage, cruising outer space on a quest for a deeper sound. As a solo performer, he delves into a box of inspirations drawn from horror movie soundtracks, jazz, French 1970s avant-garde, vintage italo, kosmische, library music and psychedelia, concocting a sound that is sensuous, intoxicating. Breathtaking in its imagination and cinematic scope, Jaumet's live show which takes in saxophone and a vast array of vintage keyboards and synthesizers is essential viewing. 'Night Music", his first CD on Versatile Records (2009) was produced by Carl Craig. "La Visite", his second album was out in 2014. In September 2018 Etienne will have a new album on Versatile Records with covers of jazz classics: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Elington, Art Ensemble of Chicago… again played with his signatures analog synths, drum machine and alto sax.

ORCHESTRA OF SPHERES
(NZ / Fire records)
Orchestra of Spheres return to Europe in November 2018 with a new album. Following in the wake of the genre defying future classics 'Nonagonic Now'(2010) and 'Vibration Animal Sex Brain Music' (2013) and 2016's 'Brothers And Sisters Of the Black Lagoon", the band have been described variously as 'a surreal road-trip through a hyper primal, fuzzed-out, synth laden, garden of Eden', and "...a hot, dynamic unit who present a live show that defies both categorization and expectation". For their new album they employ double drummers, woodwinds and other expansions into deeper, headier grooves.
Availability: Europe 01 to 24 November 2018. Also available for fly-ins/special events.

BAS JAN
(UK / Lost Map Records)
Bas Jan are a London-based experimental post-punk trio built around the remarkable and distinctive voice and songs of multi-instrumentalist and composer Serafina Steer. Their utterly brilliant debut album Yes I Jan has been released via Lost Map Records digitally on February 9, 2018, and on vinyl on February 23rd. Who is Serafina Steer? She's a vocalist, harpist, bassist and keyboard player who has released three critically-acclaimed solo albums under her own name – the latest of which, 2013’s The Moths Are Real was produced by Jarvis Cocker – as well as appeared both live and on record with musicians including Lone Taxidermist, Jon Hopkins, Rozi Plain, John T. Gast, Patrick Wolf, Tunng and John Foxx. She sees her practice as much as a social activity as an expressive, technical art and takes an experimental, punk approach to music making - seeking to create work that has a free quality and resists categorization, often arising through the juxtaposition of musical disciplines and genres. Singles 'No Sign and 'King Of The Holloway Road' were championed by BBC 6 Music's Marc Riley. Bas Jan is ready to tour europe/UK in Sept.

Since forming their duo in 2014 they have made 10 releases and received numerous accolades including BBC Radio describing them as ‘the best band in the UK’ and Thurston Moore inviting them to be part of the CAN Project at London Barbican in 2017.

ON TOUR SPRING/SUMMER 2019


NEW ON ROSTER
‘Continuum’ is a 52-minute audiovisual performance by Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves produced in tribute to the electronic piece «Koume» (1993) by the French composer Eliane Radigue. The show was commissioned for the performance hall at the Centre Pompidou to be presented for the fiftieth anniversary of the first man on the moon in 2019. ‘Continuum’ is a reconstruction of a sunset on stage as could be observed on Mars. Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves envisioned combining progressive, imperceptible frequency variations and sustained drones from Eliane Radigue’s music, with the temporal and visual continuum of a Martian sunset. The sun doesn’t actually set; the Earth rotates around the sun. This endlessly repeated, perpetual movement is a model of an eternal beginning again. This term ‘space- time continuum’, also taken from relativistic mechanics, designates a space of which the 4th dimension would be time.

CZN
(UK / Negative Days)
CZN stands for Copper, Zinc and Nickel, the raw materials used by percussionist and sculptor Joao Pais Filipe to make gongs and bells in his portuguese studio. CZN is also the alchemical sound of Joao in collaboration with percussionist Valentina Magaletti (Tomaga, Vanishing Twin, uuuu). The duo create rich tapestries of hypnotic rhythms, evolving the sound of drums and percussion into vivid textures: visceral timbres and telescoping rhythms that surround and beguile, and which hint at the meditative states of spiritual jazz as much as the cerebral counterpoint of Minimalist Composition. Beginning with a one off recording session in Porto in Spring 2018, the duo have crafted a debut LP that will be released as a collaboration between Porto’s Lovers & Lollipops collective and Tomaga’s Negative Days label in November 2018, including a launch party at Cafe Oto on 17th December.

JOAKIM - SEMI CONDUCTOR
(FR / Vinyl Factory)
“Semi-Conductor” is a musical performance created by Joakim following his residency at Studio Venezia (the installation/recording studio created by Xavier Veilhan for the French pavilion at the 2017 Venice Art Biennale) and the subsequent album “The Studio Venezia Sessions” that was released by Vinyl Factory in June 2018. Somewhere between the musical performance and the installation, “Semi-Conductor” proposes to transform the spatial configuration and the experience of a typical concert (i.e. a center stage in front of an audience, the sound is coming off stage in stereo). Here, there is no stage, no center either, instead, the instruments are scattered around space, with their own amplification system creating a multi-diffusion sound throughout the space.

Released in November 2018, the band already have support slots with Terry Riley, and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, which shows that they fit into disparate ends of a wide musical spectrum.

RHYS CHATHAM
(US / Foom)
Rhys Chatham is a composer, guitarist, trumpet player and flutist from Manhattan, currently living in Paris, who altered the DNA of rock and created a new type of urban music by fusing the overtone-drenched minimalism of the early 60s with the relentless, elemental fury of the Ramones — the textural intricacies of the avant-garde colliding with the visceral punch of electric guitar-slinging punk rock. Starting with Guitar Trio in the 1970s and culminating with A Crimson Grail for 200 electric guitars in 2009, Chatham has been working for over 30 years to make use of armies of electric guitars in special tunings to merge the extended-time music of the sixties and seventies with serious hard rock. Chatham’s instrumentation ranges from the seminal composition composed in 1977 entitled Guitar Trio for 3 electric guitars, electric bass and drums, to the epoch evening-length work for 100 electric guitars, An Angel Moves Too Fast to See, composed in 1989… all the way to Chatham’s recent composition for 200 electric guitars, Crimson Grail, which was commissioned by the City of Paris for La Nuit Blanche Festival in 2005. A completely new version of the piece was commissioned by the Lincoln Center Outdoor Summer Festival in 2009. What does a composer do after mounting many performances with forces of 100-200 electric guitars? The composer gets back to basics, at least that’s what Rhys does! Along with the G100 and G3 programs, Chatham is currently offering a solo program, an evening length work with the composer performing himself on electric guitar, trumpets and bass alto and C flutes.

ARANDEL
(FR / Infiné Music)
Arandel, a talented French musician who gravitates (beautifully) for several years in the electronic sphere without revealing his real identity, presents Switched on Bach, a project whose name refers to the album of the American transgender composer Wendy Carlos published in 1968. Becoming a cult favorite, this album brought to life reinterpreted Bach pieces with a Moog synthesizer. In the wake of Wendy Carlos and other great electronic experimenters, Arandel proposes here a hybrid performance - between live and DJ-set - mixing remixes, re-readings, recompositions and rearrangements of more or less known pieces of the huge repertoire. from Bach. The objective of this sound odyssey? "To demonstrate that if Bach had lived in the twenty-first century, he too would probably have been a demonstrator for Moog." The piece was created in March 2018 at the Paris Philharmonic as part of the Bach Marathon.

BRIAN CASE
(US / Hands in the Dark)
Brian Case (FACS, Disappears, 90 day men, Bambi Kino Duo…) just has released another stunning new solo album "Plays Paradise Artificial". This third album somehow manages to compile and condense the best bits of its predecessors, and the magnificent viridian, glacial universe developed by Case since the beginning of his solo ventures is brought to the forefront. The Chicago artist centers his elusive, dehumanized compositions on two simple, minimal elements. Using just vocals and synths, he has created a simultaneously modern and post-apocalyptic soundtrack, where music exists as the final traces of the footsteps of humanity.

RADIAN
(AT / Thrill Jockey)
The long-standing experimental group Radian has been dealing with the relation between structure and abstraction and gained world wide attention promoted by the label Thrill Jockey. Martin Brandlmayr, John Norman and Martin Siewert combine the traditional instrumentation of rock music with extremely minimalist, abstract structures. They create a space of tension between extreme dynamics, freely improvised parts and meticulous construction. Their fifth and recent release 'On Dark Silent Off' is about the juxtaposition of extremes and contrast. It took inspiration from modern and contemporary works of art, from the abstract paintings of Ad Reinhardt to 'Outer Space', an impressionistic horror film by fellow Austrian Peter Tscherkassky. Vienna is the home of Radian who have been influenced by and shaped the city’s vivid scene of electronica since the early 2000s.

YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS
(UK / Domino)
Twenty-nine years after its release, Young Marble Giants’ legendary ‘Colossal Youth’ (on Rough Trade Records, recorded in 1980 in five days and mixed in 20 minutes) remains a landmark in post-punk music, an enigma of its own, acclaimed by musicians and audience over the years. Formed in 1978 in Cardiff, the trio’s music was constructed around the powerful and minimal instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham on bass and guitar, supporting the naive untrained vocals of Alison Statton. The band split in 1980, reformed in 2006 for a world-wide serie of amazing shows (with Julie Tippex!) and called it a day in 2015. In the 80s, after Young Marble Giants, Stuart played with The Gist, Alison with Week End and Spike. The big news in 2018 is that, following the reissues by Tiny Global Productions label of The Gist and Alison and Spike's albums, they all decided to go back on the road. Stuart, Alison and Spike will perform a best-of set their whole carrer.
