The New Quiet – Mats Gustafsson & Thurston Moore
“The New Quiet” is the latest missive from the long-running duo pairing of Mats Gustafsson (Fire! & Fire! Orchestra, The End, The Underflow) and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth, Chelsea Light Moving, Thurston Moore Band/ Spirit Council). Electronic missiles of poetic beauty paired with low dynamic/ high energy layers of doom! Acoustic noise and vocal mayhem. Flutter and Splatter abstract Jazz density!
Amirtha Kidambi & Lea Bertucci (US)
The new duo of Amirtha Kidambi on vocals and Lea Bertucci on analog electronics, finds new territory in antiquated sounds. In the duo, Bertucci manipulates Kidambi’s voice through tactile methods with analog tape machine, by pressing on the reels and physically touching the tape. Kidambi reacts in turn with a vocal arsenal of timbral techniques, creating a literal visceral feedback loop of noise, processed, and amplified voice. The explorations are reminiscent of early electronic music and musique concrete, with the added element of live improvised performance.
