» ZU (IT/NOR) (Jazz core / Noise / Instrumental)
For over fifteen years, ZU's modus operandi of straddling and abusing musical
genres has resulted in over fifteen unique album releases across labels such as
Ipecac, Atavistic and Headz (Japan).
Their experimental amalgam of metal, math, no-wave, noise and electronics, led
acclaimed composer John Zorn to describe their sound as "a powerful and
expressive music that totally blows away what most bands do these days".
In the running for the title of 'the world's hardest working band', ZU have
performed over 2000 shows throughout Europe, US, Canada, Asia, Russia,
Mexico and even Africa, touring with the likes of Mike Patton (as the
Zu/Patton quartet), sharing the stage with Faith No More, Fantomas, The
Melvins, Lightning Bolt, Sonic Youth, The Ex, etc..
They have also collaborated with a vast number of musicians including
Mike Patton, The Melvins, Dälek, Jim O' Rourke, NoMeansNo,
FM Einheit (Einsturzende Neubauten), Peter Brötzmann, Eugene S. Robinson
(Oxbow), Steve MacKay (The Stooges), The Ex, Thurston Moore,
Stephen O Malley, Damo Suzuki (Can), Mats Gustafsson, Joe Lally (Fugazi).
Five years since their last full length on Ipecac, the critically acclaimed
Carboniferous, and following a three year hiatus, ZU returned in May 2014 with
the release of a brand new EP, Goodnight Civilization (Trost Records)
featuring Gabe Serbian of The Locust on drums, and subsequently with an
album with Eugene Robinson of Oxbow on vocals called “The Left Hand Path”,
also on Trost, and the new full length “Cortar Todo” on Ipecac.
Recorded in the countryside near Bologna, Italy, in the summer of 2014. , the
album features very special guests including keyboard player Joey Karam (The
Locust), Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia (who plays with the likes of Mike
Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore) and perhaps most unexpectedly a field
recording of an indigenous
Shipibo medicine man recorded by Massimo during his travels around the
Cortar Todo reveals new dynamics from the band, the album is more direct,
sharp, focussed, more intense and musical than anything we have heard from
ZU so far. In addition to the release, a long period of touring starts in Spring
In summer 2015 Zu announced to have found their new drummer in swedish
born and norwegian based Tomas Järmyr
Luca T. Mai - baritone sax
Massimo Pupillo - bass gtr
Tomas Järmyr - drums
» METTE RASMUSSEN / PAK YAN LAU DUO(BE/DNK) (Free jazz / Drone Noise)
Mette Rasmussen is a Danish saxophonist working in the field of improvised music, drawing from a wide range of influences. She spans from free jazz to textural soundwork, exploring the natural rawness of her instrument and dives in to experimenting on what the saxophone is capable of in sound and expression, with and without preparations.
Together with Brussels based pianist Pak Yan Lau, who basically share the same interests, this duo decided to meet
up and explore their sonar possibilities. With keyboard, synthesizer, electronics and objects vs the saxophone
and his preparations, the music will travel in between noise, drone and chemical surprises.
