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.
CHRISTOPH GRUBER live
Born into a musical family, Christoph’s destiny to become a musician seems almost predetermined. Rather than sticking to just one style, he used his endless obsession with of all types of music from early on, to adapt his influences into his own way of composing and playing. The Vienna based contemporary musician and composer now sees his role as a mediator between musical worlds, trying to find new ways to challenge the listening habits of his audience. Never pleased with the results, then handing his written music to other musicians, he is now doing it all himself. His music is hard to define. His instrument is the electric guitar.
