Drew McDowall (US) + Vanessa Amara at Valby Kulturhus

Dark church drone from industrial legend

Prepare for a dark and beautiful experience when industrial legend Drew McDowall (Coil, Psychic TV / PTV3) performs his majestic ambient at Valby Kulturhus this May. The Danish Drone duo Vanessa Amara is playing a support set.

Drew McDowall
Being a former member of Coil and Psychic TV, electronic musician Drew McDowall has been important for the industrial scene and the experimental music scene of New York. He has released several solo albums during the years, latest Agalma (2020, Dais Records) – an album that reigns within the magnificent and the mystical. Its seven tracks include contributions from Caterina Barbieri, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Kali Malone, Maralie Armstrong-Rial, Bashar Suleiman, Elvin Brandhi and MSYLMA. 

Inspired by the mystical and the sacral, McDowall combines modular synths with choir, organ drones, and strings in haunting and spiritual compositions. This music must be experienced live, and you shouldn’t miss the chance when ALICE presents Drew McDowall at Valby Kulturhus this May.

Vanessa Amara
Vanessa Amara is the alias for the Danish duo of Birk Gjerlufsen, Victor Kjellerup, and Sebastián Santillana, who together create pure drone music with a deeply intimate core of manipulated church organs and flourishing strings. It is music, that Fact Mag quite apt has called “heartmaking drone”. The trio is ready with their fourth album on Danish label Posh Isolation. “Manos”, the most recently released, continues to explore the vast spectrum between divine instrumentation and raw manipulated tape loops, seeking to reach the innermost of their audience. As a live act, they construct a space where the audience is floating in an abyssal space of slow-moving tones and frequencies that builds into infernos of harmonic distortion not unlike artists such as Lawrence English, Klara Lewis, and Tim Hecker.
