FLOWER CORSANO DUO + MATTHEW COLLINGS
ISLINGTON MILL, JAMES St, SALFORD, MANCHESTER M3 5HW
THURSDAY 23RD JULY.
Flower Corsano Duo
This duo is an acutely musical collaboration between kinetic drummer Chris Corsano and Vibracathedral Orchestra's Mick Flower on shaahi baaja (Japanese banjo). As a two-piece they conjure, sweat and divine a music that elevates through rhythm and ecstatic harmonics. It's a sound that's intimate and epic, raw and tender, it can rumble like a looming thunderstorm but contains exquisite raindrop touches. The dynamic is great. Eastern harmonics laced with a thrilling sense of noise and melody. An explosive sight/sound that shudders the body and colours the mind.
And of course you may have come across world acclaimed drummer Chris Corsano before in various other guises as a solo artists or performing with Bjork, Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Jim O'Rourke, Six Organs of Admittance and many, many more
You may have already seen Icelandic based Matthew Collings perform before as Imoto records signee Sketches for Albinos. This time around Matthew performs under his own name but in a similar format feeding live guitars through various mixing desks and produces an intensly evocative broken electronic music influenced by his homeland. Imagine the sound Steve Reich or Glen Branca might have produced had they been raised in Iceland and you're somewhere close to Matthew's current project.
Fantastic support from Manchester's Beach Fuzz and Blood Moon
