LAST AVAILABILITIES


JOAKIM LIVE
(FR / Because)
New album "Second Nature" (Because). This record is about giving back a voice to Nature, to re-establish a continuity between the Human and Nature, beyond the classic Western opposition of Nature and Culture. By using field recordings from all around the world (and even the universe!) as a starting point for each track on this album, I wanted to re-establish a dialogue, question our way of thinking, blur the lines between natural and artificial worlds. As a consequence I also want to address environmental and socio-economic issues like industrialism, capitalism, colonialism… which intersect with our distanciation of Nature, ultimately leading to the Climate-change and biodiversity crisis we are facing now. Ambiant music show works for seated audience.
Availability: EUR from 01 January to 30 April 2021.

NEW ON ROSTER
Memory and repetition are important tools in the composition of music. For years the Austrian musician and composer Martin Brandlmayr has been experimenting with these structural elements, also known as a solo artist for his work in groups such as Radian and Trapist. ‘Vive Les Fantômes’ is his first step into radio art and earned him the Karl Sczuka Prize for Works of Radio Art in 2018, the highest achievement for works of radio art in Germany. Vive les Fantômes is based on snippets from interviews, rehearsal recordings and concerts by people whose work had an influence on his path: Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Jacques Derrida, Chris Marker and others. They disappear and reappear over and over in a web of constantly changing shape, beyond the borders of language and music. Vive Les Fantômes is not only a piece of music, it’s rather acoustic cinema with non-linear narration. Martin Brandlmayr presents Vive Les Fantômes on drums, vibraphone, computer.

ACID BABY JESUS
(GR / Fuzz Club / Slovenly)
Formed in Athens in 2009 the four-piece released two LPs on Slovenly, caught the attention of the press and played great shows in 2015 (including Dour, Eurosonic...). After touring Europe, US & Asia quite intensively the band finally got back to the studio. After a long three-year wait they’re now back with their third album ‘Lilac Days’on UK label Fuzz Club (home of Goat, The Black Angels, White Hills...). The album sees ABJ at their best; their frenetic garage-rock distilling a hazy mix of 60s Western psychedelic pop. After a short winter tour in march, they should be available for special events & festivals in the spring/ summer.

Acid Mothers Temple entered a new phase in 2018 with the arrival of singer Jyonson Tsu, who's progressive, theatrical solo shows on classical guitar and vocals, using his own invented language, have attracted great accolades and reviews in their own right, and since the bands first shows together in Japan in December 2017 seem to have ushered in a new era for Acid Mothers Temple. This new incarnation of this already cult band came to Europe in autumn 2018 for the first time. NEXT EUROPE TOUR OCTOBER 2021

ANGUISH
(US / Rare Noise Records)
The dark, impossibly intense dirges, industrial noise onslaughts and banshee-like free jazz wailing heard throughout Anguish could be an imposing soundtrack for a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future. This powerhouse, inter-generational offering and RareNoise Records debut brings together an unlikely gathering of members of the New Jersey-based experimental hip-hop group Dälek (electronic musician and vocalist Will Brooks, guitarist-keyboardist Mike Mare), the Swedish free jazz group Fire! Orchestra (tenor saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, drummer Andreas Werliin) and the classic ‘70s German krautrock band Faust (keyboardist and 68-year-old founding member Hans Joachim Irmler). Anguish stands as a hard-hitting manifesto for the next evolution in the hip-hop legacy. Scheduled for a November release on RareNoise Records, Anguish promises to blow minds and provoke thoughts.

ARANDEL
(FR / In-Finé Music)
Inspired by his obsession with Wendy Carlos’ “Switched on Bach”, Arandel's new opus, ‘InBach’, pays a poetic, infinitely respectful and innovative homage to JS Bach’s sacred workings. Born out of a proposal by the Musée de la Musique (Paris), the aim was to use the extraordinary but often hibernating historical instruments housed in the museum, mixed with vivid, contemporary music. In the immensity of Bach's oeuvre, in the company of his fellow wanderers (Areski Belkacem, Emmanuelle Parrenin, Barbara Carlotti, Gaspar Claus, Vanessa Wagner, Ben Shemie and more), within the constraints of historical instruments, emboldened by the delightful, sometimes technically dangerous friction between acoustics and electronics, Arandel walks a tightrope without a faux pas. Out in January 2020, In-Finé label

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.

BEN SHEMIE
(CAN / Hands in The Dark)
Best known as singer and guitarist for art-rock-tronica act Suuns, Shemie also boasts a background in modern classical composition and experimental performance. A fascination for electronic music, specifically the seminal releases of Warp Records spurred him to experiment, expand his sound and fuse it with the conventions of many genres. Ever inquisitive, he seeks out novel conceptual projects and challenging delivery systems for his restless musical soul. Shemie’s solo project has him taming feedback and sound swells, teasing the elements into figures and forms as he rides out their fury or their fragility. A powerful improv-heavy piece of angular, ambient drone, prepare to be enveloped. First solo album in February 2019 with Hands in the Dark label

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.
Available for fly-ins or special events / Europe/UK.

Marimba virtuoso Vassilena Serafimova studied at the Conservatoire de Paris, as well as the Juilliard School in New York. She won some of the world's most prestigious contests, performing as a soloist and chamber musicians. The artistic co-director of the Marimba & Percussion Festival Bulgaria and of the Paris Percussion Group, she has also taken part in collaborations with musicians including jazz pianist Thomas Enhco (Deutsche Grammophon). The chemistry with self-taught Chloé was immediate, and fueled by the human complicity between the two musicians. "Chloé is my first collaboration with an electronic music. That is totally new to me, a true field of exploration". The music of Steve Reich, as the launchpad for the collaboration, was like a common language, which they gradually broke away from: "Reich is the most obvious link between electronic and academic music explains Chloé. "It was a starting point, a pretext, to go elsewhere. The idea was to then walk away from it... ».

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.

Comprised of former Disappears members Brian Case & Noah Leger alongside longtime friend Alianna Kalaba (Cat Power, We Ragazzi), FACS occupy a liminal space bordering the realms of art-rock, shoegaze, industrial music, and post-rock, applying minimalism and spaciousness in service of stark, foreboding compositions. Their last record was again mixed by John Congleton.

‘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.

FINLAY SHAKESPEARE
(UK / Editions Mego)
What to make of a vocalist so reminiscent of Marc Almond (Soft Cell), Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) and the many non-Marc/k's who sang their hearts out to synthetic accompaniment? What to make of an album, released in the dead of winter 2019, that sounds like a collection of 1983 club bangers? Finlay Shakespeare's debut places fresh emphasis on the question of synth pop's place in modern music. In 2017, Shakespeare began the “Housediet” series of monthly digital-only EP releases, taking fully improvised sessions working on his own modular systems, drum machines and processed vocals to comment on relevant current affairs and other political issues. This revised semi-industrial synth-pop sound caught the ear of Peter Rehberg at Editions Mego, who released “Domestic Economy” in March 2019. The album uses complex dancefloor elements with unwithering confidence. It evidences the unique musical approach Shakespeare has developed in a short period of time, bursting with edgy ecstatic electronic pop.

GOAT
(JP / Morphine records)
Guitar, saxophone, bass and drums. Disregarding the musical scale of instruments as much as possible, the band creates songs that consist of noise and muted sounds that produce a techno energy. The trance and fatigue brought about from relentless repetition and the melody-like sounds that comprise harmonics outside the twelve-tone are both urban and tribal at the same time. A LIVE MUST SEE!

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.

TACHYCARDIE
(France / Un je-ne-sais-quoi)
Tachycardie (drummer for Pneu, La Colonie de Vacances, F.U.T.U.R.OS.C.O.P.E. …) explores on his last LP a field between contemporary music, minimalism and sound art. Sound hypnosis, body endurance and mutant percussion. At the same time exploring the new possibilities offered by the orchestral writing and physical surpassing of his drummer's body, Tachycardie is a reflexive work on the possibilities of solo music which leaves a field of expression to the collaborations that sit at its creation. Therefore, Tachycardie will play live solo, in group with invited musicians, or even in the form of autonomous installations.

TOMAGA & PIERRE BASTIEN
(UK/NL / Other People)
Pierre Bastien‘s music making machines exist at the cross between music, sculpture, installation and visual art. Blending live trumpet with screen projections and his mechanical sound sculptures, he has developed his own poetic language, and found accolades and fans including Aphex Twin (who released two of his records). His work has been described as “a timeless sounding orchestra, both futuristic and slightly dada, conjuring ancient traditions in its surprisingly sensuous music.” Tomaga are the duo of Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen, who blend prepared percussion with esoteric synthesizers and tuned percussion to create music that moves between industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism. 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. Tomaga and Pierre Bastien began a collaboration in 2017, firstly for a performance at Fructose in Dunkirk, and secondly for a performance at Supersonic Festival in UK. In the process of these live collaborations they have prepared a recording of their unique collaboration which will be released on Nicolas Jaar’s ‘Other People’ imprint in February 2019.
