BILL ORCUTT (US)

Bill Orcutt’s guitar playing scrambles conventional logic. Filled with unpredictable fits and starts, off-key tangents and buzzing half-notes, and sometimes enhanced by the haunting accompaniment of his own wordless moans, Orcutt's work continually challenges notions of musical rules — or whether there should even be any. His deconstructive approach is clearest when he covers other people's songs, dissecting and disemboweling them in ways that don't just change their skin, but alter their basic DNA. He especially enjoys taking his stringed scalpel to tunes that stick in America's collective memory.  - Marc Masters

HELLVETE (BE)

“Hellvete is the solo moniker of Glen Steenkiste. Previously active in Silvester Anfang and Sylvester Anfang II and one of the founders of the Funeral Folk label. Hellvete draws influences from early Minimalism and old folk music and with the use of harmonium, bowed banjo, electric tampura and analog synth he creates probing intense sounds that try to undo notions of time and place. Steenkiste’s music is like taking an endless shower of sunbeams, warm, comforting and mind-altering. Music that makes time stand still and focuses on shifting details and textures, but massive in sound and presence.”

BEYT AL TAPES (BE)

In short: the real defines reality, and Beyt al tapes dismantles through a warped process of dialectic failure the notion of the ‘self’ - whereas the self is a projection of a body’s evolutionary survival software.

PERFORMANCES:
Bill Orcutt
will be headlining the festival with a solo performance. He will also be engaged in a Q&A conducted by Niels Latomme (Beyt Al Tapes). Anything ranging from his early noise outfit Harry Pussy to his latest work as a solo artist.

Hellvete will continue his Droomharmonium saga with a new performance including the Dreamachine visuals by Taping Policies.

Beyt Al Tapes …. Tapes?

FILM PROGRAM:
Taping Policies
will be screening a new short video of Samara Lubelski entitled ‘Interview + violin recording at Lower East Side’ in which I guess the title covers the load.
We will also be screening The Professor, a promo video on the premiere of Milford Graves Full Mantis at the International Film Festival Rotterdam last year. The director of that film, Jake Meginsky, also made the music for Indian Summer which will be the third video screened by Taping Policies.

To complete are concise program we invited Pablo Picco to put together a short presentation of some of his more experimental filmwork. Pablo Picco is an Argentinian musician and filmmaker best known for his outer limits/psych improv with Omasin.

FOOD WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE AMAZING ESKOBAR.
There will be a select menu of burger- and vegetarian dishes served from their foodtruck
on the Academy courtyard.
