APRIL 23 & 24, 2016 See You Soon in Soignies
PEOPLE OF EVERY PLANET, REJOICE…
Gong master builder
Entity in continuous metamorphosis within the intra- and extra-planetary chaos of its stellar system, GONG, with its multiple incarnations, has a red thread that never failed: its music, beautiful, dangerous and extraordinary. The successful new album with its provocative title Rejoice! I'm Dead! testifies it, eclectic verve from the irresponsible legatees of the Camembert.
POWER + EMOTION = MELODY * FEELING
RADICAL MUSIC OF GASCONY BURSTS ON STAGE
From traditional sound roots, ARTÚS musicians create an audacious and heroic work. Of a singular and topical vitality, this "Radical music of Gascony" really bursts on stage, in a wild contact, with people, blood and sweat - no tears.
SAY HOLLAND TO A PROG ROCK FAN
Say Holland to a quidam, he will answer you Gouda, tulips, and windmills; say Holland to a Prog Rock fan, he will answer FOCUS. Led by Thijs van Leer, tireless when it comes to making the flute sing or moan the Hammond, the band can count on the rhythmic skill of its drummer from (almost) the beginning, Pierre van der Linden.
PSYCHEDELIC SOUND SAMPLING, GARAGE PERFORMANCE
Hammond and sitar enrich the sound sampling of THE NARCOTIC DAFFODILS: Psychedelic in its gestation, Alternative or even Garage in its performance, communicative by essence, this group is made for the stage.
Pioneer of Electronic Music, he is to France what Tangerine Dream is to Germany. He is also one of the few guitarists supporting the comparison with Robert Fripp - of which he transcends the technique Frippertronics. In constant activity, RICHARD PINHAS plays on all continents - and in Soignies with the excellent drummer Arthur Narcy.
BEYOND THE CONTEMPORARY HYBRID BOUNDARIES
The reference to Frank Zappa is obvious, but does not mean everything. THE WRONG OBJECT pushes the contemporary hybrid boundaries of Progressive Rock and Jazz, valuing an aesthetic that draws from woven and woven inspirations with as much skill as vehemence.
I WANT TO GIVE VOICE TO THE WEAK
It is one of those projects that move those that come by. Who can say as such: "I want to give voice to the weak […], the inadequate, the rejected of society, the desperate lovers"? THE GREEN VIOLONIST.
