CINEMATIC DRONE : HAUNTING VOCALS : DARK AMBIENCE : 16MM FILM
BEEF presents the ‘Throats of Ash’ European tour featuring Gabriel Saloman, one time Yellow Swans guitarist and current purveyor of darkly cinematic drone and noise. He is joined by the haunting vocals and blackened atmospherics of the San Francisco based Common Eider King Eider. With installations and visuals by BEEF artists.
Common Eider King Eider is an evolving art and music collaboration between Rob Fisk (Badgerlore, ex-Deerhoof, and Six Organs of Admittance/Hexadic collaborator), Vicky Fong, Andee Connors (A Minor Forest), Andrew Weathers and Blaine Todd. A potent mix of blackened ambience, drone and silence incorporating viola, vast chorale arrangements, and field recordings. Their latest release Unhuulda, features swelling vocal abstractions augmented with lush blankets of layered viola stretched out of time-hushed, yet unnerving to experience. Terrifying, beautiful, spare, the sound of light nullified – and at the same time a celebration of the power and beauty of the sun. Labels representing CEKE since their inception in 2007 include Pesanta Urfolk, Black Horizons, Root Strata, Sol y Nieve, and their own imprint Caribou People.
Gabriel Saloman is a Vancouver based musician and artist. Saloman has been performing experimental, conceptual and freely improvised music for over 15 years. He is known for his work as half of Yellow Swans, a Portland based noise group that has released over 50 recordings and toured internationally over the course of their 9 year existence. His compositions stem from investigations into temporal abstractions, conceptual sound and gestural noise. There is a parallel concern with sound art as both liberating practice and praxis. In particular he is interested in sounds relation to the body and its capacity to move collective bodies in space through affect. Sonically his work is haunting and deeply emotive, sitting between genres and drawing on cinematic and viscerally live qualities. Gabriel currently performs solo under his own name and has recently released records with Miasmah (GR), Shelter Press (FR), Infinite Greyscale (GR) and Beacon Sound (US). He is also a member of the group Chambers with Michael Red and has forthecoming releases on Debacle Records (US).
BEEF Artists will be showing audio visual installations using 16mm film, recycled pianos and creating live visuals with the music…
