I dag: To amerikanske komponistlegender indtager København i minimalistisk ...

”Uden dem, ingen no wave, drone, Sonic Youth eller Velvet Underground, hvis medlemmer alle har samarbejdet med de herrer,” lyder det om det fornemme besøg på Københavns Hovedbibliotek og Mayhem i marts.

Den 1. til 2. marts kuraterer KNTN, Skræp og Københavns Hovedbibliotek et to-dages arrangement med et tungt program på spillestedet Mayhem i København. Den amerikanske komponist, violinist og tidligere medgrundlægger og medlem af The Dream Syndicate Tony Conrad samt komponisten, guitaristen og trompetisten Rhys Chatham fra Manhattan er de to stærke hovednavne.

Ud over de legendariske komponister er der sørget for det bedste fra både den nye, den gamle og den evige scene for yderliggående typer: yoyooyoys Fjernsyn Fjernsyn, Jørgen Teller og Jakob Draminsky Højmarks ekspressive og instrumentale legeplads Tzarina ReTuned, Swedish Azz (med Nordisk Råds Musikprisvinder Mats Gustafsson i front) og danske Jørgen Teller & The Empty Stairs feat. den belgisk/cubanske trommeslager og trompetist Lazara Rosell Albear, der kan fejre 10-års jubilæum med skærebrænder-no wave/smadret primalrock, er alle at finde på det eksplosive program.

Kirko Bangz Plants His H-Town Flag On New Mixtape
While Drake is openly inspired by Houston's screw culture, Kirko truly embodies his city's sonic characteristics on "Drank in My Cup." The slow-rolling, lean-inspired cut repurposes Houston's signature underground sound for radio; it debuted at #96 on

Exploring staged improvisation with Javelin
Exploring staged improvisation with Javelin From the chirpy, disposable party-go-round of their 2010 Luaka Bop debut No Más to the old-world pictorial permutations of last year's Candy Canyon EP, the Providence-to-Brooklyn underground success of Javelin has been a story of bold fun made possible
