Avant Ghetto Presents:
Forma Record Release Party with very special guests Richard Pinhas, Mountains and Carlos Giffoni.
Saturday June 4th, 2011
330 Ellery Street
Brooklyn, NY 11206
More about the performers:
Composer, guitarist and electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of France's major experimental musicians. A pivotal figure in the international development of electronic rock music, Pinhas' stature in France is analogous to Tangerine Dream's in Germany: the father figure of an entire musical movement. The pioneering, aggressive music produced by his band Heldon during the 1970s, fusing electronics, guitar and rock, heralded the industrial and techno to come and remains today vital and unsurpassed. Pinhas has been ceaselessly innovative in a career spanning more than 30 years, and recently has been exploring areas of the international ‘noise’ scene. His newest release, Metal/Crystal shows him working with two of that scene’s highest profile artists: Merzbow and Wolf Eyes.
Mountains is Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp, two sonic explorers whose long history, shared philosophies, and love of sculpting sound, has resulted in some of the most densely layered and blissful music crafted in recent memory. The duo is known for obscuring the boundaries between acoustic instrumentation and electronics. Their newest Thrill Jockey release Air Museum blurs the lines between acoustic and electronic music even more without sacrificing melody or the delicacy of their sound. It is an album of firsts. It was the first album that the acoustic instruments were not processed via a computer. Instead, the processing of the instrumentation (acoustic and electric guitar, cello, accordion, piano, bass etc.) was done using a variety of pedals, modular synths, and other analog techniques. While acoustic instruments were used extensively, the album manifests itself sonically as their most “electronic” record yet.
FORMA's primary influence is at the intersection of electronic based Krautrock (Kraftwerk, Cluster,Harmonia, Popol Vuh) and the explosion of late 70's early 80's underground synthesizer music grouped broadly under the umbrella term Minimal Synth. They create repetitive yet complex evolving structures of sound, producing a wholly improvised music driven by live drum machine programming, synchronized analog synths and spacious melodies. On their eponymous debut LP, the Brooklyn-based electronics trio merges the melodic flow and primitive rhythms of their motorik predecessors with the hypnotic drones of Minimalism, creating an intricate work both addicting and rewarding with repeat listens. Like many of the LP's eleven tracks, the churning and relentless FORMA237B draws its energy from a precarious equilibrium between structural rigidity and free improvisation, a dynamic at the heart of FORMA’s universe. With lush, distant soundscapes as interludes between these peaks, FORMA’s inaugural full-length is a harmonious and expansive expression of the enduring power of Kosmische musik.
Carlos Giffoni is a Venezuelan electronic musician who resides in the New York City area since the year 2000. Currently using modular synthesizers, hand made custom instruments, and various types of analog and digital synthesis in the composition of electronic music pieces, as well as improvising live with local and international musicians. His recent solo work has focused in live analog synthesizer pieces that put his style in a line with early techno and cosmic electronic music while maintaining the harsher edge of his previous noise works. He founded the No Fun Productions label, which has released works by Noveller, Onehatrix Point Never and legendary Japanese noise group C.C.C.C.

Casey and I were joined by Heath Moerland a.k.a Sick Llama on the Just Music program last night. Heath played a fine set and was joined by Zac Davis for a mid-jam clarinet/acoustic guitar duel. EVR's computer got AIDs over the weekend so there is no playlist but you can check out the archive below. We definitely played some Peter Michael Hamel, Prurient, Force Publique Congo and Casey played some whack funk shit that didn't belong....Same as it ever was.
