R Beny (US) + Krausbauer / Suzuki (US/JP) + Red Moon (PO / NL)
R Beny is an emerging name in the modular ambient world. His LP, ‘Saudade’ album was named last year by Fact Magazine as one of the best ambient albums of 2018. Saudade was quickly followed in the autumn of 2018 by another LP, ‘Eistla’.
John Krausbauer (US) and Kaori Suzuki (US/JP) will present music for voices, amplified strings, electronics, and bell percussion. Their work originates from a shared interest in ecstatic and spiritual musics as well as the “avant-garde”. Utilizing sustained tones, alternate tunings, long durations/playing endurances, and stroboscopic lighting, their music explores the parameters and possibilities of psychotropic ‘experiential’ environments rather than the strictly ‘musical’.
Red Moon (PO/NL)
Pedro Branco (guitar, Lisbon) and Annelie Koning on vocals (vocals Amsterdam) make up the experimental Red Moon. Branco and Koning can effortlessly switch between soft ballads, rhythmic work outs and spoken word.
