thanks: Eris 136199 (Hamburg, Copenhagen, Cheltenham, Derby and Newcastle, November 2017)

Eris 136199

This has been my favorite tour! Excellent company, exemplary hosts, faultless, above-and-beyond support from all. Everyone here worked so hard for no material gain to make the musicians’ journey as effortless as possible. My hosts have reminded me why we all do this; that creative music brings gradations and spectra to the sometimes hard-edged world, that it refuses and resists and rewrites the 1-bit world into something altogether more colorful and toneful and rhythmic and noisy. I am forever grateful; it was a true pleasure to work with y’all.

reminder: Eris 136199 at MS Stubnitz, Hamburg

Eris 136199, Hamburg

This Wednesday (November 1, 2017): Eris 136199 (Han-earl Park: guitar; Catherine Sikora: saxophones; and Nick Didkovsky: guitar), presented with funding from Verband für aktuelle Musik Hamburg, perform at MS Stubnitz, Hamburg. “Physics doesn’t care. But Eris cares a lot. Time is a precious thing to Han and Catherine, and the action of scattering sound onto it is a sacred and mysterious ritual.”

Chasing the chaos. (review: Sirene 1009)

‘Sirene 1009’ (BAF000) with Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash, Mark Sanders and Caroline Pugh (artwork copyright 2017, Han-earl Park)

“If this attempt at description sounds rather confused, I’ll try to summarise: years ago, Derek Bailey coined the term ‘non-idiomatic improvisation’, a label that over the years has practically become an idiom in its own right. Sirene 1009 may just be the auditory experience that Bailey’s label has been waiting for.”

November 2017: Forged in the avant-what of Downtown New York City, Eris 136199 is coming to Europe this fall, performing in Hamburg, Copenhagen, Cheltenham, Derby and Newcastle. A meeting between intrepid guitarists and cyborg interactionist Han-earl Park, legendary avant-metal composer-guitarist Nick Didkovsky, and the muscular, impeccably melodic saxophonist Catherine Sikora, Eris 136199 has been described as “a beautiful noise”, and “ein glorioser Bastard aus Noise und süßer Träumerei.”
