Conversación en torno a Yodok

Conversación en torno a Yodok

Lauro López-Sánchez M: Considerando que uno de los principios fundamentales en la música es la composición, es decir, el orden y estructura intrínseco a toda pieza musical. Durante siglos el canon europeo había establecido variantes estables en torno a las estructuras musicales, pero en los últimos cincuenta años se ha detonado una diversidad de variantes ilimitada. En cierta medida los medios de reproducción han acelerado la propia producción musical; a su vez sus formas de entender e interpretar una estructura musical. La academia ya no es el lugar de gestación exclusivo de producción de pensamiento musical. El disco de Yodok es un ejemplo versátil en cuanto a su aproximación al pensamiento musical, ya que en él convive la claridad que brinda la academia, pero por otro lado una libertad desmedida que sugiere una manera propia de pensar la música y realizarla. El disco nos sugiere un acercamiento racional pero que excede lo racional. Las estructuras que se desarrollan sugieren otra estructura donde los elementos no componen, es decir no están con-puestos, arreglados, o ensamblados. Es a la inversa, responde a una condensación de elementos que liberan su propia descomposición, más como una composta. Continue reading Conversación en torno a Yodok

MoE (No)

Personnel:

  • Guro Sklumsness Moe: Electric Bass, Octobass, voice, sound processing
  • Håvard Skasett: Guitars, effects, voice
  • Joakim Heibø Johansen: Drums

Info:

Based in Oslo, Norway, the band MoE is known for mixing minimalistic compositions with alternative and experimental approaches that fails to fit in the noise rock sub-genre.

With a highly adventurous spirit, the band goes into the terrains of noise rock always in search for expanding the possibilities of sound integrating elements and sonorities that was never explored in the genre.

MoE seeks the absolute presence in the execution of the music. Loud and violently, they molest their instruments and brings the listener closer to a healthy insanity produced by doses of loud amplitude.

The touring has become one of the most distinguible remarks of the band and independent scenes in countries such as Mexico, China , Japan, Malaysia, Thailand , Australia and lots of countries that have welcomed the presence of the band.

Dirk Serries (Be)

Personnel:

  • Dirk Serries (Be) – Electric guitar , sound processing, amps

For more than 30 years the Belgian guitarist and composer Dirk Serries has developed a unique signature sound as the result of the deep exploration into genres such as drone, ambient, dark ambient, industrial, shoegaze, noise and recently free improv.
From the 80’s he released several albums under the pseudonym Vidna Obmana until 2007, the year in which he decided to close that chapter to continue evolving his sound iwth numerous projects and collaborations.

His solo works are inspired by the process of introspection that reflects abstract sound compositions formed by sustained droning layers, walls of sound and texture saturation using electric guitar as the main source for eroding the sound waves by various analog electronic devices and types of amplification.
Serries creates almost cinematic ambient soundscapes that have the power to carry us to indomitable abstract planes.

Dirk Serries is the name behind projects such as Fears Falls Burning, Continuum and Microphonics. Along his career, Serries has worked with artists such as: Asmus Tietchens, Steve Roach, Justin K. Broadrik (Godflesh, Jesu), Aidan Baker, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Steve Noble, John Dikeman, Collin Webster, among others and toured with bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Mono (Jap), Low, Jesu among others.
