Discordian Records
2013

This is a recording of the first edition of Discordian Community Riot!!! a festival dedicated to the exposure of bands/musicians from the avant-garde musical scene in Barcelona that have recorded for Discordian Records.

Apart from being a memorable date due to its relation with the Mayan “End of time”, it was also a great concert celebrating the gathering and communal cooperation of many musicians and promoters from Barcelona’s musical underground.

This album shows only some pieces/fragments of what originally was a 4 hour concert, and is dedicated to all the musicians and promoters who gave their share to make it happen! THANK YOU!!!

Banda d’Improvisadors de Barcelona – Banda d’Improvisadors de Barcelona

La Olla Expréss
2012

La BIB (Banda d’Improvisadors de Barcelona) , va sorgir gràcies a la iniciativa de’n Serapi Soler, (Ass. Cabaret Hofmann) el 2008. En l’actualitat vinvulats a l’Ass. Cult. La Olla Expréss (editors de l’inminent disc enregistrat en col·laboració l’Auditori de Barcelona, on intervé a més el pianista Agutí Fernàndez)
La B.I.B. està formada per un nucli fix de músics i un d’obert tant a músics com a artistes d’altres disciplines, treballant la lliure improvisació construint i estructurant temes musicals en el mateix instant en que estan essent interpretats, un procés creatiu basat en l’acció-reacció, on es generen autèntiques obres en temps real.
És també un ensemble d’artistes de llarga trajectòria que assoleixen amb el treball col·lectiu una experiència creativa única alhora que un espectacle fascinant i màgic en la combinació dels seus talents individuals.
Els timbres inusuals i el concepte en que s’hi basen, construeixen un mon d’aire, una autèntica aventura auditiva i visual en mans del director i compositor Pablo Rega.
Amb la flexibilitat i l’energia d’una orquesta de jazz i la brillantor i el misteri de la música contemporània, espurnes de poesia recitada i fonètica, pinzellades de sonoritats “antigues” (Marc Egea, viola de roda) i diversos multiinstrumentistes, la BIB és la representant d’una generació d’artistes que han basat
la seva trajectòria en la curiositat i la recerca constants, on conflueixen modernitat, experimentació, sobrietat i humor, generant una conversa enèrgica, on les idees sorgeixen i es canalitzen sense pudor.

The Cinematic Orchestra – Presents In Motion # 1

Motion Audio / Ninja Tune
2012

“A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction.” – Stanley Kubrick

Jason Swinscoe of The Cinematic Orchestra has long been intrigued by the link between vision and sound. From TCO’s re-soundtracking of Man With A Movie Camera, through his “soundtrack to an imaginary film,” Ma Fleur, to his band’s name itself, Swinscoe has continued to pick away at the issues and emotions found at this intersection. With In Motion #1 he continues this process by inviting some of his favourite musicians and producers to provide soundtracks to or musical re-imaginings of seminal work by great avant-garde film-makers.

Responding to visuals which run from René Clair’s surrealist classic “Entr’acte” (The Cinematic Orchestra) right up to Peter Tscherkassky’s “Outer Space” (Dorian Concept & Tom Chant), the musicians wrote for and worked with a string quartet to create music of remarkable emotional reach. The results are so vivid, so complex yet immediate, that they can be enjoyed as freestanding pieces in their own right.

The first of a series of releases curated by Jason Swinscoe for Motion Audio, the artists involved run from LA-based pianist Austin Peralta, through the Grey Reverend in New York, to Dorian Concept in Austria and Tom Chant and the other members of TCO in London.
