xo [sic]

a program of experimental music curated by Francisco López

organized by Champ Libre
Montreal, 16-23 September 2002

Monday 16th - 7:30pm (free entrance):
Live show: MANON ANNE GILLIS (France)
One of the pioneers of the experimental music underground. A visceral and intimate sound artist and performer with that rare ability to create and maintain her own rich sonic world.

Tuesday 17th - 1:00 to 5:00pm (free entrance):
Sound installation: "Zoomspectives" by SLAVEK KWI aka ARTIFICIAL MEMORY
TRACE (Czech Republic)
One of the finest manipulators in the intricate game of ’perception’ vs.’reality’ a la post-musique concrète, with a deep commitment to the
listening experience. An immersive multi-channel environment in complete darkness.

Tuesday 17th - 7:30pm:
Live show: MASAMI AKITA aka MERZBOW (Japan)
The ’king’ of noise. A medium for an endless flow of raw sonic matter? The physicalization of sound in full power, beyond any meaningful conception.

Wednesday 18th - 7:30pm:

An outstanding explorer of the electronic guitar, his work has transcended the instrument into a zone of alien beauty and sonic impossibilities to critical acclaim.

An obscure entity dealing with raw data manipulation and complex walls of sound. A direct, solid, straightforward kick in our sensitive matter.

A master of ’somatic’ drones, his sonic constructions enhance the mystery of confusion through a powerful world where space is maximized with sound
energy.

Live collaboration of several ’blank field’ artists in a multi-channel ensemble setting. Concept & live meta-mixing: Francisco López.

NEWS from alien8

Isis, Below the Sea, Austerity Report Live at Sala Rossa,
Sept 6

Other Upcoming Alien8 Presentations...
New Items at The Alien8 Web Store


ISIS, BELOW THE SEA, AUSTERITY REPORT LIVE AT SALLA ROSSA,
SEPT 6

Alien8 Recordings in collaboration with Casa del Popolo are pleased to
present Hydra Head/Ipecac recording artists ISIS with special guests
Below the Sea and Austerity Report. The concert is part of the weekend long festivities celebrating the second anniversary of the Casa del popolo.

Poised to release their latest full length, Oceanic, for the incredibly
hip Ipecac label, this will be only the second local appearance by the
Boston based leaders of what is now being refereed to as
post-metal...if this confuses you check out the review below courtesy of Aquarius Records in San Francisco.

Fronted by Hydra Head honcho Aaron, Isis were always The indie rock
metal core band, fusing their pummeling metallic crush with plenty of
Slint-isms, making them the perfect band for Allan and Andee, who are
always saying, ’I don’t understand why that post rock band doesn’t just
play metal’. On this, their newest ep, Isis do get heavier as well as a
bit more varied. Half the songs could’ve been Neurosis out takes;
monstrous and glacial instru-metal, somewhere between Earth and...well, Neurosis (which is maybe appropriate seeing as this is on Neurosis’ Neurot label). But the less heavy moments are the ones that make them really stand out. Track 3 is a slow motion, tribal soundscape of simple, pounding drums and droning guitars. But track 5 is the one; a breathtaking cinematic soundscape of chiming guitars and restrained drumming. Sounding a lot like Godspeed You Black Emperor, they stretch out, and build an epic, emotional, slowly building, post rock masterpiece.

Below the Sea recently released their sophomore release Les Arbes
Depayseront Davantage and things have never looked brighter for this up and coming Mtl and Quebec City based trio. The band doesn’t play all
that often, so if you missed the record launch, here’s your chance.

Austerity Report are totally unknown to us at this point, aside from
the fact that have recently signed on the dotted line for Hydra Head and
have a recording of some sort in the pipes. The band was described as
non-cheesey industrial duo that could be compared to a hybrid of
Shellac/big black meets prime era Godflesh.

The concert features Isis, Below The Sea and Austerity Report and takes
place Saturday September 6 at 9pm at the Sala Rossa, admission is $10
in advance and $12 at the door.

NEW ITEMS AT THE ALIEN8 WEB STORE

The following items are newly available from the Alien8 Recordings web
store at http://www.alien8recordings.com/store/

Vromb: Memoires paramoleculaires CD (Hushush)
Inspired by the emerging Hushush sound, Memoires paramoleculaires is a digital sequencing of analog sources. This is the result of a process
of understanding Heurel Gaudot’s participation to Vromb’s musical output.
It is constructed as the first chapter in an electronic opera for
ultratonical machines. Questioning our link to reality, this sci-fi
musical project is a reflection on our condition as organic machines.

Alexandre St-Onge: Kasi Naigo CD (Squint Fucker Press)
St-Onge’s third solo release continues his experimentations with
acoustic
sound.
