Club 85 presents... HACO / STUART O'CONNOR / TARNOVSKI
An evening of Experimental-Electro and Acoustic Music.
Haco is a composer, vocalist, electroacoustic performer, sound artist, and a founding member of After Dinner (1981-1991) and Hoahio. She has created numerous recordings both as producer and sound designer. As a musician, she has given performances throughout Japan and the world. With her unique sensibility, Haco has developed a practice based on principles of post-punk, electroacoustics, the avant-garde, improvisation, post-rock, environmental sound, and technology. In 2005, her CD "Stereo Bugscope 00" was awarded a prize in the digital music category at Prix Ars Electronica in Austria.
Haco will be bringing new songs from her seventh album Qoosui (Someone Good/Room 40). She uses voice and self-programmed electronics as an ‘organic method’ in her performance, accompanied by video images shot and edited with Mariko Tajiri. Qoosui has won critical acclaim from music and art magazines and has been played on numerous radio programs in Europe, North and South America, Oceania, and Japan.
“My view is ‘no borders’ when it comes to sounds for creating new music. I want to open my ears and find the rhythm and tone for all of the sounds in my life.” – Haco
2000 shows in 10 years, totally independent and happily marching to his own tune! Stuart O'Connor has defiantly turned down multiple offers to remain fully independent and true to his dream of creative independance in his professional career. Having toured multiple times in Japan, New Zealand, Italy, Australia, Thailand and more, it's clear to see that his bold choices have paid off! Do not miss this.
Hailed as a key figure in Czech experimental-electro music, Tarnovski is a musician, composer and producer, one of the founding members of experimental pop band Miou Miou and the Czech post-everything quartet Gurun Gurun.
Named after a fictional planet from the old school Slovak sci-fi TV series ‘She Came Out of the Blue Sky‘, Gurun Gurun’s musical work combines analogue synthesizers, manipulated field recordings, piezo-amplified objects, DIY instruments and effects to span musical spaces ranging from hypno-minimalist atmospheres to warm tones of slow moving, repetitive melodic stanzas.
His performances commonly include a mixture of glitch electronica, musique concrète, drones, computer deconstruction, quirky sonorities and field recordings. He also runs Jipangu, a small label focused on experimental music and sound art.
