Improbabilis Duo - Saturday 30 September - 8pm


Pierre-Antoine Savoyat and Simon Groppe are moving ahead on a chosen path amongst
the free music unleashed universe (Bill Dixon, Don Cherry, Cecil Taylor, Jacques Di Donato and/or Axel Dorner);
Messiaen & Varèse contemporary music;
Ligeti "formal-static development music";
or Grisey microtonal realm.
Aim: stripping to cast aside the restraints of conventions, and seeking to create musical synthesis.

On Sat 30 Sept they will play at Haekem (8:00 PM). Obviously an open-minded
momentum.

Wasteland: Chamber Noise - Friday 9 June - 8pm

"Veritable Brandenburg concerto of noise pollution, Wasteland met at the Brussels festival Tempo al Tempo 2016.
Alchemy, affinities and an observation: the fragility of their “baroque” families of instrument (flute, oboe and guitars) could be put to use in an archaic and luminous landscape where breath penetrates feeling and the mind voyages on the threshold of unspeakable dada tremors with vertiginous reptilian speed…"

Obviously a positive momentum.

Indie from NYC

Gabriel Zucker & the Delegation

"Indie from NYC" - Gabriel Zucker & The Delegation - Wednesday 26 April - 8pm

Gabriel Zucker’s indie jazz orchestra The Delegation was founded in 2013, and has already broken new ground in New York’s dynamic music scene. Combining Zucker’s metric complexity and maximalist approach with the melodic stylings of indie rock, the group’s impressive roster of jazz players forge a unique and emotionally immediate sound, representing a singular approach to improvisation in the 21st century. The ensemble’s musical philosophy has been profiled at length by the Ottawa CitizenJazz Gallery, and the American Composers Forum. The Delegation has performed throughout the Northeast, Canada, and Europe, and Zucker’s compositions for the group have received awards from ASCAP and the American Composers Forum. 

In October 2016, The Delegation released Evergreen (Canceled World), Zucker’s maximalist 12-movement composition that serves as the band’s sprawlingly ambitious debut record. One of the only contemporary 2016 releases on ESP-Disk’, the singular record appeared on top-10 lists and was hailed as a “fascinating form of sonic installation” in a 4.5-star review in Downbeat. Awarding the record 4 stars, All About Jazz raved that the Evergreen “totally lives up to its larger-than-life sweep and scope.” The World Music Report wrote: "In Zucker’s almost confrontational writing I find the vision of one who is hugely expressive. Here is a young man with a profound sense of tone and colour and how it can be wrought from diverse instrumentation to be affectingly ‘cantorial’, expressive and hugely symphonic too." With protean production by Zucker and pop producer Chris Connors, the nearly-two-hour record features everything from angular rhythmic grooves to Radiohead-inspired soundscapes to jarring electronics-infused chamber music to enigmatic lullabies.

The Delegation is currently working on its sophomore record, Leftover Beats From The Edges Of Time, portions of which were premiered by Zucker in a March 2017 solo recital at Weill Hall (Carnegie Recital Hall).

In a nutshell:
Wednesday 26 April 2017
