Ingresso 6 euro!

Torna ad esibirsi con una serie di concerti acustici, dopo una pausa di alcuni anni, il neozelandese Dean Roberts, già membro di White Winged Moth ed Autistic Daughters, collaboratore di numerosi musicisti quali Sonic Youth, Phill Niblock, Jim O'Rourke ed autore di album sperimentali, fortemente personali ed al di là di ogni possibile genere per etichette quali Kranky e la Estatic Peace di Thruston Moore

Roberts is one of New Zealand’s leading practitioners in the field of contemporary music and has produced a number of albums to critical acclaim. His releases on Staubgold, Mille Plateaux and Kranky Records are regarded as touchstones of contemporary experimental music. Weaving elements of rock, electro-acoustic, minimalism and free improvisation into unusually affecting song cycles that sound equally avant-futuristic and hauntingly ancient, like ghost of songs past.He is an artist whose mercurial presence has manifested across the full spectrum of avant-praxis kicking off with his early NZ rock-informed improv/drone group Thela (Ecstatic Peace) and work under the White Winged Moth alias. He performed and recorded regularly as a member of Tower Recordings (with Matt Valentine Erica Elder, Tim Barnes, PG Six and others) during a lengthy illicit stay in NYC. His later group Autistic Daughters (with Werner Dafeldecker, Martin Brandlmayr and Valerio Tricoli producing) are majestic examples of the possibility of detourned songform
His album “The Black Moths Play the Grand Cinema” was described by the Wire Magazine as “A tremendous achievement where everything fits, less of an attempt to blend genres than a demonstration of how for the truly imaginative, genres remain utterly meaningless.” He has worked extensively in the USA and Europe collaborating with many artists in Experimental music from Sonic Youth, Otomo Yoshide, Jim O’Rourke, Phill Niblock, Tower Recordings, Mike Cooper, Martin Brandlmayr, Werner Dafeldecker, Eugene Chadbourne, Kevin Drumm, Fennesz, Tony Buck among others.
Featured recently in the Wire Magazine’s " Seismic Performances" 30 Concerts that Shook the Planet, Jon Dale described his performance as “affecting a complete transformation of both songs and the performance space itself, ritualizing the interaction between guitar and voice and forcing himself through the barriers of his material with an intensity I had previously only witnessed on rare occasions :y. He pulled songs apart, losing himself in repetitions and sometimes effecting brute force on his guitar to wrench near-violent clusters of notes from the instrument. This was one of those rare occasions where you observe a performer lost in their world yet maintaining absolute control over their material and shaking down the audience, shocked and unable to speak, probably the best commentary possible on Dean Roberts’ performance.”
In a seated and hushed environment his unusual juxtapositions of instrumentation, verse and sonic experiments reveal the art of the song as a far more suggestive, highly experimental medium that one could assume. Akin to popular or “folk” music were it given the treatments of an avant- garde composer.
