Scorching violin and guitar improvisation
concert organised in collaboration with SoundInMotion / Oorstof
We know Samara Lubelski from her solo work and from various provocative art-music bands like Hall of Fame, The Tower Recordings and MV & EE. On her first solo release, 'In the Valley' (1997), she explored the boundaries of resonance and drones with her violin. Lubelski then went on to release a series of lush psychedelic folk-rock releases upon us: 'The Fleeting Skies' (2004), 'Spectacular of Passages' (2005), 'Parallel Suns' (2007), 'Future Slip' (2009), 'Wavelength' (2012), 'The Gilded Raid' (2016) and 'Flickers at the Station' (2018). Dennis Tyfus released her second solo violin issue in 2014 on his Ultra Eczema label. She toured and recorded with Thurston Moore’s band Chelsea Light Moving and played on Moore’s solo albums ‘Trees Outside the Academy’ and ‘Demolished Thoughts’. German collective Metabolismus and Marcia Bassett (Zaïmph) have been musical sparring partners for years now and she steered the dials in the studio for recordings of bands like Double Leopards, Sightings and Mouthus.
Guitarist Bill Nace regularly works with an exceptional group of influential musicians like Michael Morley, Mats Gustafsson, Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano, Greg Kelley and Kim Gordon (Body/Head). His range on the electric guitar has previously been described as ‘veering from sculptural, almost Remko-Scha-esque chime to Loren Connors-style elegance in only a few short moves.’ (Mimaroglu Music, 2010). We find his releases on diverse labels, such as Ecstatic Peace!, Ultra Eczema, Holidays, 8MM, Throne Heap, HP Cycle and Nace’ own label Open Mouth.
Bill Nace and Samara Lubelski released a very intense, entirely improvised LP on Open Mouth (Relative Pitch/cd) in 2018 and now tour Europe for the first time as duo…
