Youngs & Maranha & Corsano + Flowers/Ghosts & Echoes
Youngs, Maranha & Corsano
A friend tells WORM that, “Youngs, Maranha & Corsano are three of the most idiosyncratic and illuminated artists working in the sprawling field where the most defiant and unmapped musics converge.” This, then, sounds like a night not to be missed.
Glaswegian Richard Youngs has carved a fascinating path between folk-infused reveries, devotional drone, a capella hymns, electronic excursions and most points in-between. Youngs has worked on dozens of albums and collaborations, and recorded on labels such as Jagjaguwar, Ba Da Bing! or No Fans.
David Maranha has, for over 30 years, conveyed his spiraling vision on the organ, percussion and violin; through drone, improv or ritualistic excursions in different shapes. A unique vision that translated the eternal in a sprawling language through countless performances, approaches and records; like ‘Marches of the New World’ and the classic ‘Antarctica’.
An unstoppable North American drummer whose lexicon seems to be constantly expanding into new and exciting forms, Chris Corsano is justifiably one of the most requested musicians within the improv, free jazz, and out-rock. Corsano has been travelling all over the globe with the most disparate but always relevant and visionary artists, such as Evan Parker, Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, Paul Flaherty or Jandek.
Flowers/Ghosts & Echoes
The guitar improv duo Flowers/Ghosts explore the unrepeatable and difficult to control aspects of the electric guitar. This includes sounds that arise unexpectedly from the complexity of the guitar’s electronic circuitry, through big layerings of sounds, to microtonal clashing chords. This exploration often conjures up unrepeatable instant compositions that move between ambient, jazz, blues and noise. Echoes is the visual project of Felix Bodin. Using a self-designed visual instrument, projections are reverberated through the performance space with the use of a malleable mirrored surface; which spreads, distorts or focuses digitally generated patterns into unique light and projection shows.
