Robert Ashley

"Robert Ashley’s opera Atalanta (Acts Of God) is a collection of stories, songs and musical themes arranged into three groups. Each group is focused on the character of an extraordinary man of our times... Max Ernst (surrealist painter)... Willard Reynolds (shaman storyteller)... Bud Powell (composer pianist). The three groups/three men are thematically connected as possible suitors for an extraordinary woman, symbolized by Atalanta."  - more info 

"These are long stories in the tradition of stories that are to be sung, but are too long to be sung without a musical accompaniment. Without the music (and even with the music) people drop out now and then and so they have to hear the story many times for all of the parts finally to come together. I know a lot of stories in that style from my childhood. It’s a wonderful way to hear a story. Now, with recording, the story can be heard many times."  - Robert Ashley

Martinique - Cane Fields and City Streets (1962)

"With its striking Afro-French creole culture, Martinique nurtures a strong heritage of unique music: drum dances, work songs, quadrilles, story songs, and popular urban styles such as the biguine and mazouk. Caught at a pivotal moment in Martinique's history, Lomax's recordings feature powerful traditional singers such as Ti Raoul Grivalliers, and foreshadow zouk and ragga."  - Rounder Records

António Victorino d'Almeida & Carlos Paredes

(1986) Invenções Livres / V0

"Friends for many years, many times we met together at the same shows, performing for the same audience… One day, António Vitorino d’Almeida suggested that we played together. Me, improvising my part and Vitorino d’Almeida improvising his. We did this several times refusing the previous choice of themes or sequences. We sought, above all, to reach the largest possible spontaneity…" Carlos Paredes

José Afonso

(1985) Galinhas do Mato / 192k

"Unable to sing due to the progressive development of his disease, José Afonso releases at the end of 1985 a new LP with original tunes. Only two of the ten themes which compose this record are interpreted by Afonso - the remaining tracks feature Helena Vieira (Tu Gitana), Né Ladeiras (Benditos), Luís Represas (Agora) Janita Salomé (Moda do Entrudo, Tarkovsky, Alegria da Criação), Catarina e Marta Salomé (Galinhas do Mato) and José Mário Branco (Década de Salomé, in partnership with Afonso). A wide range of friend decided to support the artist in this new endeavor, contributing to bring life to this impressive work by José Afonso. It is without effort that one would say that Galinhas do Mato is a great record, and not even the physical difficulties of its author which made him unable to directly participate in were able to eradicate the splendor and sincerity of this work. This proves that the words and music of José Afonso are able to resist to anything, even the absense of voice, shut down by such a foolish disease." Viriato Teles

VA Made To Measure Vol.1

Made To Measure Vol.1 (1984)

"The inaugural release of the Made To Measure series includes pieces by four artists:
Aksak Maboul's "Un Chien mérite une mort de chien" is clearly inspired by the subject matter of the play it was written for (Vladimir Mayakovsky and the Russian Futurists), while their strangely melodic minimal turntablist piece "Scratch Holiday" (entirely generated with a turntable, a vinyl 7" single from the '60s and some orange marmalade) is allegedly the soundtrack of a Honeymoon Killers holiday movie;
Tuxedomoon's obsessive "Verdun" comes from the soundtrack of a Dutch movie about the famous WW1 battlefield;
Minimal Compact's elegant "Pieces For Nothing" were created for a dance performance by choreographer Pierre Droulers;
Benjamin Lew's piece ("A la Recherche de B.") was the soundtrack for a fashion exhibition."  - Crammed Discs

Barricade 3 (1976)  •  ReR Megacorp

"The debut ZNR LP has long remained one of my all-time faves. A collision of eccentric Satie-esque miniatures, strange, amateurish keyboard/synth explorations and the occasional song, delivered in a mixture of French and Spanish tongues. I always think of the creepy, over-ripe vocals on Seynete as one of the LP’s most memorable moments, but there are many. A genuine hybrid of weirdness and beauty, Barricade 3 has kept me entertained for the better part of 18 years."  - Graham Lambkin (The Shadow Ring)

Memphis Goons

Teenage BBQ (1968-74)  •  myspace

"Although this collection has been rumored to be a fake collaboration recorded in the '90s to sound like it was from the '60s, this scenario could not be further from the truth. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, truth is better than fiction. These Memphis high school losers were listening to Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, and the like in the early '70s and were not going to let their redneck roots or their lack of musicianship stop them from creating their vast body of work in Elvis Presley's shadow in the Memphis suburb of Whitehaven. Somebody in the band was dumb enough to save the tapes and almost 25 years later they saw the light of day. If you are looking for extreme music, here it is, in its raw, warbling, neo-psychedelic glory. Fuzzed-out, lo-fi, and nearly incomprehensible, this captures the true spirit of independent music."  - Epitonic

Ecoem amplificadores!
Lancem sinais de fumaça!

Estamos montando uma noite do Experimental ETC na cidade de São Paulo. A acontecer nos próximos dois meses, num local da região central da cidade.
A fase de negociação segue muito bem, obrigado; temos o local quase fechado, e até mesmo uma atração internacional querida do público daqui.

Mas para que tudo corra dentro dos conformes, precisamos além da sua presença, de colaboradores.

Procuramos patrocinadores.
Não temos a intenção de lucrar com o evento, fazemos por diversão e num esquema colaborativo.

Artistas precisam de suporte, nós precisamos de uma certa estrutura...
Que tal ajudar?
Escreva para experimentaletc arroba gmail ponto com e troque uma idéia com a gente.

Em breve novas.


Aquele abraço!

Tall Dwarfs

Dogma (1987)

Tall Dwarfs can easily be named one of New Zealand's most creative bands, because the two members, Alec Bathgate & Chris Knox, live a 100 miles away from each other and used to write songs by the exchange of tapes including song demos. This proces makes the Tall Dwarfs' songs very profilic, tape looped precussions, feedback guitars, etc. based around minimalistic arrangements, detailed by their distinct approach.

(1989) Die Andengitarre / 192k

"Some sort of obscure German instrumental compilation nevertheless powerfully captures a full range of magical techniques behind this Argentinean guitarist. Immediately it becomes apparent Yupanqui's playing, while perhaps a little more free of constraint and certainly poorly produced, ranks amongst the fiercest Latin acoustic talent heard, and quite often overshadows more technically rigid successors simply because of how truthful and expansive the playing is." amazon

The Shadow Ring

Lighthouse (1999)

"To enter the world of the Shadow Ring is to enter a surreal anti-world of bizarre song structure. Lighthouse will rank with Trout Mask Replica and Tago Mago as both one of the most avant garde and the most eccentric double LP's of all time. Unlike those two records, Lighthouse features no instrumental pyrotechnics, instead relying on odd sonic combinations, startling lyrics, and a very painterly use of minimal studio technology. Absolutely essential listening if you are interested in modernist stretching of song form with extraordinary results."  - Swill Radio
