ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE, AUN, INCONSOLABLE GHOST
ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE live
Brian Pyle wanders the world on his countless travels. Far from being restless, he has his very own Pylesque way of travelling. Much like a Lynchian version of Hemingway, he has an eye for the thin layer between restlessness and relaxation, gloom and serenity. Wherever he goes, he ardently absorbes these nuances, rarefies them and moulds them into a seamless array of glimmering styles, from drone and ambient to shoegaze and post-wave, giving birth to yet another creation of his prolific Ensemble Economique project.
Montreal duo AUN, consisting of multi-instrumentalists Martin Dumais and Julie Leblanc, melt the boundaries between psychedelic, ambient, shoegaze, industrial and kosmische music. Since their 2007 inception, they toured in 20+ countries, have performed at such diverse festivals as Mutek, Roadburn, WGT, Fimav and all the while releasing highly praised albums on several esteemed labels namely: Alien8 Recordings, Important, Cyclic Law, Oral and Denovali.
INCONSOLABLE GHOST live
Inconsolable Ghost is an occult audio-visual group produced by Hilary Jeffery and Gideon Kiers, former members of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation. Conjuring up a twenty-first century vision of spiritism and occupying a similarly spooky territory as Kilimanjaro / Fuji, this project works with several well known artists who are conceived as channellers of energies, atmospheres, ghosts, spirits, thought forms and other entities.
Inconsolable Ghost shows are deeply atmospheric channelling events, as anyone who witnessed the early Inconsolable Ghost concerts can testify to. The first channelling took place at OT301 – the old film academy in Amsterdam – there followed two Central European tours in 2014 and 2015 which brought the group to Vienna, Bratislava, Topolcany, Budapest, Ostrava and Zagreb. These tours featured collaborations with the Japanese filmmaker Makino Takashi, the Hungarian viola player Zsolt Sőrés Ahad, the Berlin duo Hacklander \ Hatam and the Australian cellist Anthea Caddy.
