      • Roulette TV: BILL ORCUTT & CHRIS CORSANO

        Roulette TV caught solo sets and a world premiere duo performance by Bill Orcutt ("one of the most influential noise artists of the 20th century") and Chris Corsano ( “one of the most exciting drummers on the planet”) - and asked the tough questions: "What is your name and what do you do?" "Why are the two of you playing together?" "Why play loud?" "Why do your records sound the way they do?" "Why modify your instrument?" "WHY MAKE MUSIC?" CHRIS CORSANO First spellbound by freely improvised music in the mid-1990s after witnessing performances by TEST, William Parker, Cecil Taylor, and others, Chris Corsano began a long-standing, high-energy partnership with Paul Flaherty in 1998. A move from western Massachusetts, USA to the UK in 2005 led Corsano to develop an expanded solo music of his own, incorporating sax reeds, violin strings and bows, pot lids, and other everyday household items into his drum kit. In February 2006 he released his first solo recording, The Young Cricketer, and toured extensively throughout Europe, USA, and Japan. He spent 2007 and ’08 as the drummer on Björk’s Volta world tour, all the while weaving in shows and recordings on his days off with the likes of Evan Parker, Virginia Genta, and C. Spencer Yeh. Moving back to the U.S. in 2009, Corsano returned focus to his own projects, most notably a duo with Michael Flower, Rangda (with Sir Richard Bishop and Ben Chasny) and solo work, now revamped to include synthesizers and contact microphones in addition to his drum set and home-made acoustic instruments. BILL ORCUTT Former guitarist and founder of the noise/punk rock duo Harry Pussy (later a trio) Bill Orcutt’s sound is a hiccup-stuttered reimagining of blues guitar. One can hear familiar Southern folk scales between Orcutt’s jagged solo acoustic phrases, pulling and pushing melodies into unresolved fragments that eventually come unmoored in vast and satisfying note-torrents. Produced by JIM STALEY Directed, Edited, Shot, Mixed by MATTHEW MEHLAN Audio Recording by JUSTIN FRYE Additional Editing by BRENDAN RILEY Title Music Courtesy of DORON SADJA http://roulette.org

          (10:30) This video highlights the sustainable practices that the Town of Ajax has adopted. It shows water treatment plants, waterfront bike trails, community gardens, clean energy, clean vehicles and a diverse community. Colin has seen many of Ajax's pockets while he was shooting this video, and he can personally give it a "thumbs up" for a place to live. Shot over many days, this video will be used to spread the awareness of sustainable towns and hopes to inspire other municipalities to adopt sustainable practices.

            • RANGDA + KEIJI HAINO & ERIC CORDIER @ KC BELGIE

              za 5 juni, kunstencentrum BELGIE, Hasselt RANGDA (US) Richard Bishop, Ben Chasny, Chris Corsano + Keiji Haino & Eric Cordier (JP/FR) DE CONCERTAVOND GAAT VAN START MET RANGDA RANGDA: Vanaf 2003 verrasten Chris Corsano (Björk, Thurston Moore, Paul Flaherty, Mick Flower.. ), Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire) en Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls... ) de bezoekers van kunstencentrum BELGIE op regelmatige basis met bezielde concerten. Het bleek slechts een kwestie van tijd voor deze drie zwaargewichten uit de alternatieve scene elkaar zouden vinden. Als Rangda - naar de Javaanse demonenkoningin van de Leyaks - treedt dit tot de verbeelding sprekende trio nu naar buiten met een brok onversneden rock die deze maand (mei 2010) verschijnt onder de titel False Flag voor het Drag City-label. Het blijkt een explosieve muzikale coctail te zijn geworden die een zieltogend genre als rock via een stevige kick in the ass uit zijn as doet herrijzen. De Europese tournee die Rangda naar kunstencentrum BELGIE brengt bewijst dat de heren Bishop, Chasny en Corsano het menen met deze nieuwe band. U overtuigen dat de duivelse psychedelica, hoekige riffs en donderende ritmes van Rangda vooral ook live hoogst aanstekelijk werken, is de eerste nieuwe stap in wat hopelijk een lange Rangda-saga zal worden. KEIJI HAINO & ERIC CORDIER: Keiji Haino, legendarisch Japans gitarist/multi-instrumentalist en eigenaar van een doortastende oerschreeuw die niemand onbewogen laat, bracht zopas met Oren Ambarchi (kc BELGIE, 2002, 2004, 2006) en Jim O’Rourke (ex-Gastr Del Sol, ex-Sonic Youth) de beklijvende cd Tima Formosa (Black Truffle Records) uit. Samenwerken zit dan ook in het bloed van Haino. Van Pan Sonic, Ruins of Faust naar Boris, Melvins, Merzbow, Derek Bailey, Painkiller of Brötzmann: geen uitdaging is deze excentrieke oprichter van cultbands als Fushitsusha, Vajra en Lost Aaraaff te veel. Voor de Europese concertdata vraagt hij de Franse hurdy-gurdyspeler Eric Cordier mee. Cordier verbaasde in 2002 in kunstencentrum BELGIE met zijn sublieme drones in samenwerking met Chie Mukai (Ché-SHIZU) en Sei-Ichi Yamamoto (Boredoms), later door het Franse label Turtles’ Dream uitgebracht als “Enkidu: Hasselt”. Eric Cordier introduceerde de hurdy-gurdy (draailier) in 1992 aan Keiji Haino die in 1995 uitpakte met de solorelease Twenty-first Century Hard-y Guide-y Man (PSF). Op verzoek van Keiji Haino worden zijn gitaar en stem nu bijgestaan door Eric Cordier op hurdy-gurdy en elektronica.
