Mai Mai Mai was born on a little island of the Aegean Sea around 30years ago. Since childhood, he followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, assimilating the different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. Short periods of time which were intense enough to leave indelible traces. This project is the transposition of those experiences into music and sounds: a mix of drone and ambient, steamy rhythmics, field recordings and sound-scapes which lead us to ancient and arcane ages, on the border between east and west. After wandering for so long, he's now living in a little village on the Ionic Coast, in the South of Italy.

"Delta is one of those albums that feels like it has emerged, fully-formed and wonderfully weird, from a parallel universe or sickly secret society that we've never heard of but always suspected might be lying underneath our own." - The Quieus

Claudio Rocchetti is one of the most active european noise musicians of the last half decade. Apart from his main solo project he is also part of 3/4HadBeenEliminated with Tricoli and Pilia, half the duo Olyvetty with visual artist Riccardo Benassi an he melts togheter with noise­funk duo G.I.Joe into In Zaire power trio. He also played in projects with Nico Vascellari and Jooklo Duo (as Hypnoflash), with double bassist Klaus Janek and with Mattin, Bowindo and MB among others. His job is mainly focused around noise pastiches as the result of hardware live manipulation, turntable feedbacks and various recorded sources and objects. He released records on Hundebiss, Hapna, Die Schachtel, Presto?!, Soleilmoon and Holidays Records. He is also the founder (with Kam Hassah) of Musica Moderna, a label focussed on field recordings, sound poetry and sound art (musica­ The work of Claudio Rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, Berlin­based Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact. The tarry, mesmerizing hues that characterize his “music objects” are grounded in layers of sound detritus.

Tetuzi Akiyama - akustiskt gitarr
Magnus Granberg - klarinett
Henrik Olsson - slagverk, elektronik

Hösten 2013 såg en ny trio dagens ljus då Tetuzi Akiyama tillsammans med de två svenska musikerna Magnus Granberg och Henrik Olsson gick in i studion för att spela in en serie fria improvisationer samt ge ett par konserter bl.a på Göteborgs Konsthall. Granberg och Olsson har även de uppmärksammats för sitt arbete inom den nya improvisationsmusiken, och båda är medlemmar i kammarensemblen Skogen, vars musik i gränssnittet mellan noterad och improviserad kammarmusik rönt internationellt erkännande.

Den japanske gitarristen Tetuzi Akiyama framstår som en av de mest intressanta och särpräglade musikerna inom en ny globala scen för den många gånger lågdynamiska och minimalistiska elektroakustiska improvisationsmusik som började växa fram under 1990-talets mitt. Scenens japanska gren uppmärksammades stort i internationella musikmedier åren kring millennieskiftet, och dess inflytande måste idag betraktas som betydande, om än i stort okänd för en större allmänhet.

Tetuzi Akiyama är på samma gång såväl att betrakta som en portalfigur som något av en outsider i sammanhanget:hans musik ansluter sig inte till någon dogmatik, utan sammanflätar på det mest otvungna och naturliga vis influenser från så till synes disparata källor som amerikansk countryblues och senmodernism till en mångtydig enhet bortom dikotomier och eklekticismer. Utöver samarbeten med experiment- och improvisationsmusiker som Otomo Yoshihide, Toshimaru Nakamura och Oren Ambarchi har han även samarbetet med tonsättare som Antoine Beuger och popmusiker som David Sylvian.

Under kvällens konsert kommer han att framträda med de svenska musikerna Magnus Granberg och Henrik Olsson. Granberg och Olsson har även de uppmärksammats för sitt arbete inom den nya improvisationsmusiken, och är även medlemmar i kammarensemblen Skogen, vars musik i gränssnittet mellan noterad och improviserad kammarmusik rönt internationellt erkännande.

Missa inte denna fjäderlätta tungviktare. Klangligt, rumsligt, reduktionistiskt,

djärvt och mänskligt!

A presentation of live performances and exclusive audio releases, positioned on the interdisciplinary boundaries between visual arts, experimental sound, and performance. The program consists of: an exhibition, performance program, workshop, and reading. The exhibition is a showcase of the exclusive vinyl releases DE PLAYER has produced in cooperation with international artists. The performance program will be based on using vinyl as a medium for live music. The reading and workshop address the underlying ideas of this innovative metier, executed on an 'old school' medium, and its relation to the early avant garde: this has been the focus in the program of DE PLAYER. The 'in-house' produced vinyl records are audio carrier, sculpture, performance tool, and/or installational particle; they are as well technical, tactile and visual pieces. We present these works in a contextual program of live performances and informative aspects. The vinyl products are published and distributed throughout the world. with Dennis De Bel, Gert Jan Prins, Kent Tankred, Leif Ellgren, Peter Fengler and Koos Siep amongst others.

DE PLAYER will also be participating in the event in memory of Sten Hanson on October 21st.
