Mon 16 July
Plan B Magazine Presents:
OXBOW DUO
+ Duracell
+ ZX Spectrum Orchestra

Oxbow Duo - Eugene Robinson and Niko Wenner, the singer/lyricist and songwriter/architect of Oxbow 's mean mania, make the making of Oxbow music a thing of rarefied beauty using little more than the rudiments of guitar and voice for the non-electrical rendering of a terror no less absolute because of a lack of volume. Fans of Lightning Bolt will love Andre Duracell, from Lyon - a one man 8-bit drum-trigger frenzy. D igitised voices and crunching beats from ZX Spectrum Orchestra. A soft centered selection of bleeps, melodies and poll-axe beats so galvanized it 's a wonder the Spectrum 's made it out alive. Who needs PS3?

I don't know his music too well, is it really shit? I am SO looking forward to the Oxbow Duo. Oxbow are an incredible band live. If I manage to get all sorted out this evening, I wouldn't mind going to that gig in Whitechapel cause I live in the area.

Well, it's a bunch of young guys doing incredibly smug fusion-y jazz. I'd imagine that Bitches Brew is mentioned in 78% of writings about them and it's probably their favourite album when any twat with half a brain knows that On the Corner is the best Miles Davis and that, bang for buck, his wife was better.

I'm definitely up for seeing this too - have never seen Oxbow before (in any formation).

Yeah, I'd like to see Oxbow also. I might try and make it to Supersonic fest in July where they are playing.

They're really worth checking out live. They rock and have a frontman with such an unforgettable stage presence.

Resonance FM's The Bike Show is organising a performance of Godfried Willem-Raes’s second symphony for ’singing bicycles’. It will take place in the morning of Saturday 7 July, starting outside Scooterworks Cafe, 132 Lower Marsh, SE1 This is the day of the Prologue Time Trial of the Tour De France, in Central London, so it will be possible to take part in the Singing Symphony in the morning and watch the Prologue in the afternoon!

If you would like to equip your own bicycle and come along, you’d be very welcome. If you would rather we supply you with the necessary equipment, we’d be happy to do so, though we will need the money beforehand: dynamo & bracket (10), speaker & connecting wires (5), resonating tube (free, hopefully), white suit (5). We will have sound engineers and bicycle mechanics on hand on the day to help with the set up, which will take place from 10am. We hope to begin the performance shortly after 11am. Email to confirm your participation and your equipment requirements (if any) to bikeshow@gmail.com . We will be in touch regarding payment to cover equipment costs.

For more on the Symphony, pasted below is the lowdown. Or you can listen to the Bike Show’s feature on the symphony.

Quote:Have you ever dreamt of playing in a symphony? Have you heard of the early-20th-century-futurists favoring the street over the palette or the theatre? Maybe Godfried-Willem Raes’ ‘2nd Symphony’ could be your chance. And, it isn’t even very difficult: join the symphony with your bicycle. Then, together at the occasion of a workshop, we carefully prepare and tune your instrument; you and your colleagues cycle in a long row at a regular pace; the last cyclist overtakes the whole group. The Singing Bicycle’s Symphony you perform, will delight you and your audiences in a wonderful and exciting way.

The ‘Symphony for Singing Bicycles’ is an open air event scored for a minimum of twelve cyclists with their own bicycles. A workshop of two hours is enough to prepare the instruments for the performance:

1. each bike -if it doesn’t already has one- receives a dynamo to generate its own electricity (6 Volt / 3 Watts);
2. a impedance-matched loudspeaker (15-15 Ohms) is connected to the dynamo. The power rating of the speaker should be at least 3 Watts, corresponding to the average power delivered by the generators.
3. each loudspeaker gets a carefully calculated length of tube in order to obtain a specific musical scale ;
4. by cycling at different velocities, (the last cyclist overtakes continuously the whole group), glissandi are obtained. At very specific velocities, resonance will occur in the tubes.
5. by cycling on different pavements, timbre-variation and frequency modulation is obtained. Cobble-stones provoke tremolo’s, narrow streets reverb and echo the sounds
6. every cyclist wears a white overall-suit labeled -in large numbers- with the resonant frequency and the interval ratio (between 1/1 and 1/2) of her/his individual instrument.

I rarely go very far north of Oxford Street, unless there's a band playing that I really really want to see, then I might venture as far as Islington or Camden. I may risk mixing with all the Spurs fans to see Religious Knives though.

RELIGIOUS KNIVES
AIRPORT WAR
NALLE
THE ONE ENSEMBLE
FAMILY BATTLE SNAKE


129 Seven Sisters Road,
London Doors 7.30pm, 6

http://wegottickets.com/event/19600


RELIGIOUS KNIVES
Religious Knives is Mike Bernstein, Maya Miller (both of Double Leopards) and Nate Nelson (Mouthus). Psych-minimalism with slowly shifting synth melodies, atonal guitar, twisted percussion and haunting vocals. Recent releases on Troubleman Unlimited, No Fun Productions and their own Heavy Tapes.
Only UK appearance.

AIRPORT WAR
Airport War was started by James Hoff as a forum for his poetic and visual investigations into sound and performance. Airport War made its debut in November 2005 at PERFORMA05 with an installation/performance at the White Box Gallery in New York . This occasion also marked the release of Over and Over the Endless Corner, a 16 record album/carry-away installation.

NALLE
Nalle are a Glasgow-based three piece featuring Hanna Tuulikki (vocals, kantele, flutes), Aby Vulliamy (viola) and Chris Hladowski (bouzouki, clarinet). The sound is one blissed out, expansive drone, comparable to Tuulikki's Finnish compatriots Lau Nau or Islaja, but with a distinctly Anglo-Scottish twist. Recent album 'By Chance Upon Waking' out on Pickled Egg Records.

THE ONE ENSEMBLE
The One Ensemble are in fact four - Daniel Padden (guitar and vocals ), Chris Hladowski (bouzouki), Peter Nicholson (cello) and Aby Vulliamy (viola). Daniel is one quarter of Volcano The Bear, while Chris and Aby are members of Nalle and Glaswegian jazz-folk big band Scatter. Fusing Eastern European traditions, classical chamber music, mystical minimalism and free jazz into a heady brew, their music is otherworldly, magical and unmistakably beautiful.

FAMILY BATTLE SNAKE
Family Battle Snake is Bill Kouligas and Harry Astras, Greek natives but with the former living in London . Heavy telepathic improvisations and all too rare duo (full) line-up. For the past 2 years have played almost all around Europe and released loads of recordings on many European and American labels.
-
Second Layer Records will have a stall at the show too.
