Albatre // Gura
Jazzcore - Free Jazz - Math Rock
Einlass: 20:00 // Konzertbeginn: 21:00
Albatre is an experimental music trio operating from Rotterdam. Their music is a joyously harrowing display of urgent bass & sax noise, skewed jazz elements, frantic but meticulous drumming and abrupt moodshifts. Albatre can be seen as part of a burgeoning micro scene of artists highlighting the crossover of improv, noise rock and jazz currently made in Holland.
Albatre are back for some more «display of urgent bass and sax noise, frantic but meticulous drumming and abrupt moodshifts», but this self-description doesn't say it all. Something changed in this Rotterdambased band formed by two Portuguese, Gonçalo Almeida and Hugo Costa, and a German, Philipp Ernsting, since the release of “A Descent Into Maesltrom”. They're still crossing post-Ornette Coleman free jazz with metal and punk, but now the music is more essential and minimalist, with everything reduced to the bone. And yet, the doom factor is enhanced as never before. The riffs are slowly (sometimes very, very slowly) repeated until you get hypnotized, a bit like Otomo Yoshihide's band Ground Zero used to do, and when something different happens – colorful harmonic cloud formations and harsh noise fusing in strange ways – it's like discovering a new planet. There's aspects of jazzrock and of psychedelic and progressive rock going on, but what's really important is the final impact on your stomach: the music strikes you there directly. With “The Fall of the Damned”, the jazzcore format goes to new territories.
Belgian experimental sludge band GURA have been around since 2004. With only bass and drums laying out the blueprint of their music, they had a surprisingly rich musical vocabulary, adding mathematical and abstract (poly)rhythms to the mix. In 2014 GURA teams up with Ludo, a long-time Zorn-esque free jazz saxophone blower and vocalist, who immediately tuned in to the no-barriers vortex of controlled noise and structured chaos, opening the gates to aural multiverses of yet unknown power and frantic brink-of-madness cacophony.
