JARBOE & FATHER MURPHY

JARBOE & FATHER MURPHY April 18, 2018, 8pm, Potrva Tickets: GoOut Jarboe has always made collaboration an essential part of her work. Especially after ending her seminal period with the Swans, the great singer and songwriter – one of the most crucially influential for experimental music as a whole – has shape-shifted, adapted and explored new paths through joining forces with a plethora of other artists, all of them as different and often as forward-thinking as herself. Neurosis, Byla, Justin K. Broadrick, Kris Force and Helen Money have all paired up with the American artist, producing works that still tower as completely unique entities today. In 2017, Jarboe has turned her attention to the shadowy Italian duo Father Murphy, and it’s a collaboration that has been deeply fruitful so far. Describing themselves as “the sound of the Catholic sense of Guilt. A downward spiral aiming at the bottom of the hollow, and then digging even deeper,” Father Murphy have been tinkering with their own dark mix of psychedelia, drone and grey chamber pop for over a decade now, and it is easy to see how this has all the makings of a winning team. It’s easy to hear it, too […]

Pere Ubu (Moon Unit) / Garth Knox & Saltarello Trio

August 28, 2017, 6pm Palác Akropolis Tickets: GoOut Facebook link   Pere Ubu (Moon Unit): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHfZovOsXlI Garth Knox & The Saltarello Trio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9ecquWRJAU   Mezinárodní festival Prague Music Performance uvádí legendární skupinu Pere Ubu (Moon Unit) v čele s Davidem Thomasem, a dále Gartha Knoxe & Saltarello Trio Garth Knox je v popředí scény nové hudby v mnoha ohledech. Díky zkušenostem, které získal jako violista v Arditti Quartetu a Ensemblu Intercontemporain a z těsné spolupráce s mnoha předními soudobými skladateli, se stal ojedinělým interpretem hudby mnoha stylů včetně minimalismu. Knoxův Saltarello Quartet má ve svém repertoiru úpravy písní Hildegardy von Bingen, Guillama de Machauta, skladby barokního skladatele Marina Maraise, úpravy irských lidových písní a skladby současných avantgardních skladatelů Johna Zorna a Kaiji Saariaho.   Svým zvukem a přístupem se Pere Ubu (Moon Unit) řadí k takovým avantgardním legendám, jakými jsou The Residents, Captain Beefheart či John Zorn. Jedna z nejoceňovanějších alternativních a experimentálních kapel vůbec byla založena v Clevelandu v roce 1975. Svou tvorbou předznamenali novou vlnu a postpunk. V Čechách se k nim jako ke svému vzoru hlásí např. Už jsme doma nebo Mikoláš Chadima. Hlavním poznávacím znakem skupiny je zpěvák David Thomas, který v minulosti v Praze představil i své další projekty, např. Two Pale Boys. Za […]

Ramsch & Rosen

June 2, 2017, 7pm Villa Pelle In cooperation with the Austrian Cultural Forum in Prague Price: 240 kč Tickets reservations: info@pmpif.org TICKETS HERE Among old paintings, manuscripts, and between the lines, Julia Lacherstorfer and Simon Zöchbauer rummage for old tunes. A layer of dust carefully wiped away, what they discover usually turns out to be a treasure chest – gems to bosom and ears. Their music bridges past and present – a past when clocks ticked differently and a present where we can connect ourselves to the whole world and choose from an immeasurable number of opinions, pick the most precious, the most suitable items for our individual character. The result: A type of unique music that is inseparable from the people who perform it. It needs to take place within them, earnestly, yet with a wink. “The most beautiful moment in a concert is when everything starts to coalesce: we with our music, our music with the audience, the audience with space and time, so that only the present moment exists with its sound and image.” Simon Zöchbauer trumpet, voice, zither, electr. tanpura, shruti box *1988 in Herzogenburg, Lower Austria Simon studies at the Vienna University of Music and […]

LiveART with Maryleen Schiltkamp

LiveART with Maryleen Schiltkamp, Tomáš Jamník and Jan Bartoš May 2, 2017, 7pm New Town Hall Tickets reservations TICKETS HERE MUSIC PAINTING is a new performance art, combining music, dance and painting directly by making a painting during the concert, recital or dance; a visual creation on a canvas following the musical movement and the color of sound at the same time, as a unique experience. I am fascinated by the visual parallels of musical movement and how colour relates to sound. I want to paint music and the musical movement of dance, and I feel instrumental in this as an artist. In a way of performance that an audience can relate too, feels captured and excited by, and enhances their experience of the musical piece or dance. In such a way, that the interaction between musician, dancer and painter is essential to the experience. The most interesting part is to see it being made; the painting starts when the music starts and ends likewise. As a preparation, a visual score is created from sketches and I train myself on the time-frame; an anticipation when to do what and where on the canvas – almost like a choreography for the dance of […]

Einstürzende Neubauten

June 8 2017, 8pm Forum Karlin Tickets: GoOut Facebook link Around  1980,  many  young, creative people  perceived  the  exceptional political  situation in West Berlin as normal; and one in which it also seemed that anything was possible. When Blixa Bargeld was asked whether he would perform at the “Moon” club on April 1, 1980, he agreed, dreamt up the band Einstürzende Neubauten, and then called a couple of friends. The band’s first lineup consisted of those musicians, who happened to be free that night: Blixa Bargeld, Gudrun Gut, N. U. Unruh and Beate Bartel. In 1981, Blixa Bargeld, N. U. Unruh and FM Einheit recorded an “inaudible” LP in a recording studio: Kollaps is a frontal attack on conventional listening habits of that time, which the mainstream had made deaf. For lack of money (among other reasons), the band’s range of instruments consisted of “found” and self-­‐built objects made of  sheet steel, drills, hammers, a “non-­‐voice” that plucked a text out of shreds of  German  words and  professional  studio  equipment,  which  was  consistently  used  despite  their  real attitudes toward technical modifications. Through this approach, the construct Einstürzende Neubauten has become one of the few German bands to produce genuine, international impulses and they have had an inspirational  effect […]

Adrian Belew Power Trio

April 21, 2017, 7.30pm Lucerna Music Bar TICKETS HERE Facebook link A celebration of Adrian Belew’s massive body of work past, present, and future. Adrian is touring with his Power Trio: Julie Slick on bass and drummer Tobias Ralph, both powerful, virtuoso musicians. Belew will introduce his new musical listening concept called FLUX: “never the same twice”. Adrian Belew is a legendary guitarist well-known for his diverse travels around the musical map. He is a multi-instrumentalist whose solo records are critically acclaimed. His first appeared on the guitar-world radar when he toured with Frank Zappa who later said, “Adrian reinvented electric guitar”. Belew’s signature tones, unique use of effects and whammy bar remains completely different, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on today’s guitarists. He was singer, guitarist, songwriter, frontman for Progressive Rock band King Crimson for over 30 years. Discipline, Adrian’s first record with King Crimson, is listed among the most important rock records ever made. Adrian Belew has taken his fans on a wild ride through countless world tours and albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Laurie, Anderson, and Paul Simon.

O.R.k.(King Crimson meets Porcupine Tree) / support: Kollar-Mastelotto

March 23, 2017, 8pm Lucerna Music Bar TICKETS HERE Drawing on the singular talents of vocalist and producer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (Berserk!, Obake), innovative guitarist Carmelo Pipitone (Marta sui Tubi) and internationally renowned musicians Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) O.R.k. is an intriguing collaborative album which defies easy categorization yet remains gratifyingly accessible. Their critically acclaimed debut album Inflamed rides fuses primordial energy with playful acoustic psychedelia and experimental rock, but with an added seasoning of intense ambient and electronica. Across the ten tracks, O.R.k illuminate a deep subconscious landscape, rich with controlled chaos and populated with archetypal forms and characters. Highlights include the mezmerising Pyre, accompanied by a stunning animated video from Oktopus Productions and the jarring urgency of Funfair which promises entertaining rides in the most intimidating manner. Imposing, but also encompassing a hypnotic, powerful beauty, O.R.k. is a forward thinking, mischievous slap around the head of complacency, and a captivating listen from start to finish. The concert will be also special because of the support. Pat Mastelotto will open the concert with Slovak guitarist David Kollar.
