Sprawl next week: Cooper, Headley, Un Caddie
S P R A W L October 2004 bulletin
SPRAWL at the Charterhouse Bar
DATE: weds 13th October
live line up:
MIKE COOPER (Hipshot/UK/ITALY)
International musical explorer who covers variety of genres. His
blues-based work has diversified to include improvised and
electronic music, live music for silent films, radio art and sound
installations. His cds latest Rayon Hula on his own Hipshot label.
"Rayon Hula -"....a masterpiece of contemporary exotica."
(David Toop in the Wire)
"...the first entirely rewarding work of modern exotica.."
(Jonathan Dean - Brainwashed).
GREG HEADLEY (USA)
Los Angeles-based composer and guitarist Headley began
in a relatively traditional vein of guitar experiments, moving
into electronics and noise. The guitar is still apparent on his 4th
album, A Bulletin on Vertigo (28 Angles, 2003), nine computer
pieces that construct living sounds and then let them evolve in
their artificial environment. Night Blooming and The Water's
Fall radiate very dynamic and organic textures. Headley
briefly flirts with rhythmic effects in This Too Is Unknown,
but stops short of entering the fray of post-techno music.
UN CADDIE RENVERSÉ DANS L'HERBE (Brazil) - live
aka Didac P. Lagarriga was born in Sao Paulo then moving
Barcelona. His works are about unknown influences, specific temporary
places, some souvenirs sampling older souvenirs, garden practices,
pastiches and observations on not fitting in... He records for
Hamburg's Dekorder, his own label oozebap, as well as Audiodregs,
k-raa-k, amanita, tu'm. His music follows the rich tradition of
Brazilian antropophagous concept, mixed with his own fictionidentity
research, an amalgam of traditional instruments (mbira, balaphon,
berimbau...) and digital processing. He performs all over the globe.
"a series of steadily hypnotic, subtle and deeply satisfying revolutions."
Chris Sharp, The Wire
"Created with a deft touch and delicately poised - who knew microsound
could be so dreamy?
