WHISPERING SONS (be) – tak:til presents YONATAN GAT & SPECIAL GUESTS – JASON SHARP (can) – KELLY MORAN (us) – LEA BERTUCCI – tak:til presents REFREE
Whispering Sons signed off on one of the best (Belgian) albums of 2018: ‘Image. Stronger still: if ‘Imagine’ had seen the light of day during the heyday of post-punk then it would have effortlessly overshadowed its peers. What’s more: we think Whispering Sons is the Best Belgian Band of the moment. Basically: a more than worthy closer for BRDCST!
BRDCST also welcomes, for the second year in a row: tak:til, the brand new instrumental sublabel of superb house of global sounds Glitterbeat (see: AMMAR 808, Tamikrest ...). Last year Širom and Joshua Abrams performed here. This year BRDCST is pleased to welcome ex-Monotonix guitarist Yonatan Gat and Catalan flamenco guitarist Refree, who performs an inimitable mix of flamenco, jazz and experiment.
We pull out the prepared piano in a way that John Cage would be proud of, with Warp-debutante and Oneohtrix Point Never-musician Kelly Moran. Pitchfork wrote of her: ‘She’s making the piano sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before’. We completely immerse ourselves in the underground, with Canadian saxophonist/composer Jason Sharp – who is linked to the Constellation label (see: Godspeed You! Black Emperor). Just like composer and sound-artist Lea Bertucci, a new rising star of New York's improv underground.
