Xerox Exotique #053: META MEAT – [tba] – 17.10.2019

Both electronic musicians and composers, Somekilos (half of 2kilos &More) and Phil Von (co-leader of Von Magnet) also share a passion for percussions and rhythms.Their common project entitled META MEAT associates the source of flesh (MEAT) with its passage beyond (META).
META MEAT is a very physical live act bound to propel our bodies and souls into another state, a state of release and trance, incarnating a wish to elevate our animality towards a higher conscience of being. The duo fights together a vibrant duel. Their joined skills and energies combine real drumming & beating (Somekilos), real stamping & banging (Phil Von) together battling against twisted virtual synths samples & machines. The electronic sounds being treated as radically as the acoustic percussions played by the two musicians, the musical result turns out sounding utterly “tribal”.

Xerox Exotique #052: GUIGUISUISUI – EMERGE – 23.07.2019

GUIGUISUISUI 鬼鬼祟祟 is a two piece art-rock performance band. Curated by Chinese artist Nan Guazi and her British husband, Guiguisuisui blends electronic and live sounds to create the backdrop for interactive theatre performances which feature a cast of characters from an imagined future and past. Over the top of this Nan Guazi’s live animations are projected onto the stage; animated steampunk fairytales that add to the ethereal quality of the performance. The show has toured relentlessly since it’s beginnings in 2012, with gigs in China, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe (UK, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland). In 2016 they were presented with the ‘Band of the Year’ award at City Weekend – Beijing’s annual awards show – as well as being featured on the cover of 通俗 歌 曲 (‘tong su ge qu’) magazine, China’s longest running rock and roll magazine. The Shining Soundscape concept is the latest manifestation of the bands’ experiences to date: an artistic performance that combines both live digital video painting and improvised ambient music, to create a backdrop over which performance and meditative chanting combine with electronic music, in a meeting of minds and cultures.

Xerox Exotique #048: Indiscreet Jewels – tba – 29.04.2019

Indiscreet Jewels is an experimental electronic trio based in Berlin. The band defines their style as post-aleatoric psycho pagan wave. The dense intricacy of electronic improvisations transforms into twinkling fluctuations of hypnotic grooves. Psychedelic soundscapes of repetitive phrases disappears in erratic instants of sonic splashes and scattered overtones. Mysterious synths and uncanny voices are revealing implicit acoustic milieu of otherworldly boudoirs and celestial sanctuaries.
