Eupcaccia show #2 (A Sound and Visual Experience)
Eupcaccia Records have been busy organising a visual and sound experience featuring some of Eupcaccia's favourite musical artists: Wild Free Jazz by the Felix Bornhold Trio; sublime microtonal music by Kraig Grady and Terumi Narushima; the exciting new group of young composers called Ensemble Onsombl, and two mini sets by sound artist Mr Plebetron. All accompanied by some amazing visual voyages from black and white cinema through to amazing technicolour. This should be a great evening for anybody with an interest in cinema and music!
About the Artists
Formerly known as the Composers' Ensemble, Ensemble Onsombl takes a maximalist approach to improvised music making, where contradictory sonorities collide in an eclectic flow of sound and/or music. Ensemble Onsombl is made up of six composers and the group often acts as a testing ground for both notated and improvised music. The Ensemble lets styles clash and personal tastes crunch, inducing juxtapositional and conflict-ridden music.
Lewis "Onsombl" Mosley - Electric Guitar
Solomon "Ensembel" Frank - Clarinet(s) and objects
Naomi "Ensombelle" Dodd - Flute(s)
Joshua "Onsumbil" Winestock - Tuba and guitar(s)
Angus "Unsoumbul" Davison - Piano(s)
Will "Omsondble" Hansen - Double Bass
Kraig Grady and Terumi Narushima
Clocks and Clouds is comprised of core players and composers Kraig Grady and Terumi Narushima.
Their totally acoustic performances feature specially retuned vibraphone and pump organ. Often they are joined by like-minded musicians to include other instruments of their ensemble, such as the Mesotonal (meaning ‘between tones’) Marimba and thundering bass Meru Bars.
These unique instruments - with their pure harmonic tuning - explore the beauty of room resonances via ancient sacred scales and multi-dimensional geometries. It is not uncommon for an audience to experience the sensation of harmonics sweeping through space due to the way in which sound waves from the instruments interact with the environment.
