about ONE MAN NATION (SG)
Marc Chia’s work was best described by Portuguese avant-garde collective Soopa after a concert in Porto as a performance that transmitted a deep narrative feeling of geopolitical disenchantment, ingrained into dark textures. This disenchantment exists not only on a purely narrative level, it is exorcised by the use of every part of his body, including sounds produced by the intended or accidental gestures (picked up by several self-built piezo contact microphones) and physical actions. Everything is technology by making anything and everything potentially an instrument.
With a constant sensitivity to the surroundings during his breathtaking live-performances, which are a profound and cohesive mix between computer music, performance art and improvisation, Marc Chia states an explicit expression against the prefabrication of culture. He captures his audiences worldwide by bringing to the foreground what was already pre-existing but unrecognized.
about THE CLOSING (AT)
The Closing are the most burning newcomers that strike out from the austrian scene at the moment. This shy young trio was set up around one and a half year ago by the musical heads Lukas Lehner and Alexander Hengl together with Daniela Auer. Their intention from the beginning was to make music without any borders and limitations in direction of sound, style and production-techniques, under use of both analouge and digital ways. Based on very free organiced soundscapes and heavily processed tonemanipulations, hold together by the mostly dominating beats and precarious rhythms compensed with a variety on vocal transformations and cascades visceral melodies. Not just in the studio also on stage The Closing appear as a variable growing bandformat that include often guests on live drums and guitars, heir shows are aided by outlandish projections. Watch out soon for their their debut releases on the new Anticon sublabel Sixmonth and Laton.
