Chordiform

Chordiform

Chordiform (SE-IT)

Chordiform is a duo project consisting of Johan Levin (Desiderii Marginis) and Son Jiyoung. It was formed in Linköping in 2013. Musically the project is based on cinematic, melancholic noir piano melodies paired with electronics and field recordings. Each Chordiform track is created out of inspiration and ideas, based on a complex and diverse concept about human communication; including the elements, nature, art, science, the subconscious and various aspects of the esoteric traditions. All merged together to create something personal, unlimited and unique.

Chordiform (Svezia-Italia): è un duo composto da Johan Levin (Desiderii Marginis) e da Ji-Young Son (organizzatrice del Villa Festival). Si è formato nel 2013 a Linkoping (Svezia). Musicalmente il progetto si basa su sonorità melanconiche dal gusto “noir”, ricche di melodie come di elettronica e field-recordings. Ciascun brano è creato ed ispirato da riflessioni sulla comunicazione umana che includono gli elementi naturali, la natura, l’arte, scienza, il subconscio e vari aspetti delle tradizioni esoteriche. Ne deriva un qualcosa di personale, senza limiti ed unico.

HIDDEN PLACE

HIDDEN PLACE (IT)

was formed by SaraLux, Fabio, Antonio, Giampiero with an idea to combine their great passion for 80s electro, new waves and artistic avant-garde of twentieth century.

 

HIDDEN PLACE (IT)

è una band formata dai fratelli SaraLux e Fabio, Antonio, Giampiero. Il progetto nasce per il grande amore verso la new wave e l’elettronica degli anni ’80 insieme alle avanguardie artistiche del ’900.

 

ANDREW KING (UK)

The Proud Tower (forthcoming new album)

Although known as a singer of traditional song, visual artist, archivist and experimental musician those familiar with Andrew King’s back-catalogue will know his settings of material from the Great War, arrangements of Kipling, David Jones and A. E. Housman, an interest that stems from his paternal grandfathers involvement in that conflict. For this anniversary year of the outbreak of that war Andrew has recorded new compositions to go with re-recordings of those earlier pieces as a memorial to those men that fought in it. The compositions range from Art settings such as Elgar’s Carillon and Butterworth’s “The lads in their hundreds” to arrangements of Peter Bellamy’s folk-influenced Kipling settings such as “Have you news of my boy Jack?” and Gethsemaneas well as noise pieces such as Azazel, a setting of David Jones, and fieldrecordings such as “The Stripping of the Alters”, which utilises a recording of the Maundy Thursday service and Fields of Remembrance, recorded on Remembrance Sunday outside Westminster Abbey. The centrepiece of the album is a setting of Kipling’s Recessional which utilises a source recording of the poem as it was performed at the burial of the Unknown Soldier in 1920 but which also includes a section in which friends and associates from all of the former belligerent nations have been invited to recite the names of their fallen from their local monuments, giving the recording over 20 guest reciters from around the globe and a truly internationalist slant. As always, Hunter Barr (KnifeLadder, Black Light Ascension, Naevus) and John Murphy (Shining Vril, Kraang, Last Dominion Lost, Death in June, etc, etc) contribute to this recording, but it is a matter of special pride that Patrick Leagas of 6comm has contributed trumpet to the album, playing his father’s 1916 Besson & Co military trumpet.

Andrew King (Inghilterra)

The Proud Tower (nuovo album prossimamente in uscita)

Sebbene conosciuto come interprete della canzone tradizionale inglese, artista visivo, archivista e musicista sperimentale, specie coloro che hanno familiarità con il catalogo di Andrew King, sapranno delle  propensioni di questo eclettico personaggio per il materiale musicale relativo alla Grande Guerra (arrangiamenti di Kipling, David Jones e AE Housman). Un interesse il suo che deriva dal coinvolgimento dei nonni in quel conflitto. Per l’anniversario dello scoppio della Grande Guerra, Andrew ha registrato quindi nuove composizioni da cui affiorano anche ricordi di quei vecchi brani periodo bellico, come se potessero divenire, dopo cento anni, un memoriale di quegli uomini che hanno combattuto nel conflitto mondiale. Le composizioni sono inflluenzate da “Carillon” di Elgar, dall’autore Butterworth, da arrangiamenti di Peter Bellamy (folk che risente di Kipling) tipo“Avete notizie di mio figlio Jack? “ e “Getsemani” così come altri pezzi noise come “Azazel “, voluto originariamente da David Jones, e registrazioni sul campo come “The Stripping of the Alters” che utilizza una registrazione della funzione del Giovedì Santo e “Fields of Remembrance” registrato durante il Remembrance (a Novembre proprio fuori la Cattedrale di Westminster). Il fulcro dell’album è tratto da una poesia,” Recessional”, di Kipling , che utilizza una registrazione della poesia recitata durante la Cerimonia di Sepoltura del Milite Ignoto nel 1920, inoltre vi sarà una sezione in cui amici e colleghi provenienti da tutte le ex nazioni belligeranti sono stati invitati a recitare i nomi dei  caduti ricordati sui monumenti più vicini a loro, dando alla registrazione (con 20 diverse voci raccolte da tutto il mondo) un taglio veramente internazionale. Come sempre , Hunter Barr (KnifeLadder, Black Light Ascension, Naevus) e John Murphy (Shining Vril, Kraang, Last Dominion Lost, Death in June, etc, etc.) hanno contribuito a questa nuova produzione musicale, ed è un motivo d’orgoglio in più il fatto che Patrick Leagas (6 Comm) abbia suonato la tromba nell’album (del 1916 e appartenuta a suo padre).

 

Patrick Leagas 6 Comm (GB)

Patrick L. has actively been involved in music since the 1977 when at the age of sixteen he started playing drums and percussion and various instruments in several punk and post punk experimental bands. Bands: Death In June, Mother Desctruction, 6 Comm (Sixth Comm-6<omm) etc.

Digamma Cottage

 

 Digamma Cottage (IT)

 Il progetto Digamma Cottage si concretizza nel 2013 per volontà di Enzo Loffreda (musicista laziale con diverse esperienze in ambito rock) che registra sei brani con lo scopo di farne un demo. Il prodotto è stato molto apprezzato da Roger Linney (titolare della piccola label inglese Reverb Worship) che ha deciso di farne un disco (con l’aggiunta di due brani registrati per l’occasione) in una tiratura limitata ed in uscita nella primavera del 2014. Nel frattempo ad Enzo Loffreda, inizialmente unico titolare del progetto, si sono affiancati altri cinque musicisti dal background musicale molto eterogeneo e che hanno reso Digamma Cottage una vera e propria band, contribuendo in maniera decisiva alla crescita del progetto. Dal folk psichedelico dell’inizio si è arrivati adesso ad una sorta di post-rock molto emozionale e reso variegato grazie all’utilizzo di diversi strumenti (chitarre, mandolino, xilofono, percussioni, basso, sintetizzatori, violini, contrabbasso etc…). Durante l’estate del 2013 si sono concretizzate inoltre due importanti collaborazioni con Andrew King (che ha donato una splendida interpretazione dell’Ulisse di Lord Alfred Tennyson per un brano dedicato al tema del viaggio) e con AimA (Les Jumeaux Discordants, Insula Lucis, Aimaproject etc…) che ha cantato in alcuni brani inediti. Attualmente la band sta lavorando su nuovi brani, che verranno presentati al Villa Festival nel settembre 2014. Per questo appuntamento i Digamma Cottage stanno preparando un live di grande impatto emotivo e, grazie alla possibilità di esibirsi proprio con Andrew King e Aima, daranno vita ad una performance che fonde diversi percorsi musicali tra passato e futuro.

In late 2001 Swedish musician Lars Tängmark recorded a CDR EP entitled “Winds of Change” under the monicker Lost in the Woods. Work on a follow-up was abandoned and Lars Tängmark instead recorded under his own name for the next nine years.
Ten years after the recording of the first EP Lars decided to re-active the project invited Johan Levin to join as a full member. The first release from the revived project was “The Meadowland Suite”, a full length CD of pastoral-industrial dronescapes released on Lars own Hulterstad Sound label in April 2013. A second album in a similiar vein – entitled “Gormanudur” – is to be released in early 2014 on canada’s Cyclic Law label and in April 2014 Lost in the Woods will make their second ever live appearance ever at the Valhalla Festival in Norrköping, Sweden.
