DÜSSELDORF BY NIGHT
In ”The Found Tapes Project” Düsseldorf by Night use old cassette tapes found on flea markets and thrift stores and treat them as raw material in live electronic music performances. The found tapes are sampled, manipulated, processed and ”physically played” using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create obscure rhythmical structures, noises and drones. The album DbN ”Images for Tape” will be released 17:th of July 2015 on Lamour Records.
A duo specialising in their own style of music they call Kurdish Electronic Meditation. They record their long-form songs at home via improvised jams, preferring to keep the music free without guidelines. The spirit of Klaus Schulze looms large and the music created has a touch of the progressive electronics you’d expect from Germany in the 70′s. The darkness of Spectrum and the warped atmospheres of The Orb seep through too. Their first vinyl will be released this evening, its a collaboration on the new label Zeon Light Skiva and Lamour Records.
SQ (SOUND QUARTET)
“SQ (Sound Quartet) is carried by howling winds from the frozen tundra with an urge to make sound poetry for the masses, an enchanting experimental blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. These rarely published freethinkers creates a low key intense music with the strength of swedish granite that matured for an eternity.”
Thomas Bjelkeborn on electronics has performed at festivals on all continents. Paul Pignon on Sax, Woodwinds and Digeridoo is a pioneer in EAM and lived equally in the UK, Yugoslavia and Sweden. Live visuals is provided by Deadpixel.
