Duo Yamagishi / Hyvärinen à La Ferme Ta Gueule !


Soirée privée 


Lauri Hyvärinen (Finland) : guitar
Naoto Yamagishi (Japon) : percussions

Lauri Hyvärinen

Lauri Hyvärinen (b. 1986, Helsinki) uses guitar as his main sound source. His sound and music related activities are of theoretical and practical nature, of which improvisation remains as his primary medium and interest.With a background in hardcore punk, free rock and free jazz, Hyvärinen now utilises the possibilities of improvisation, compositional and minimalist structures in search for shared and intensified social and spatial constructions.

Hyvärinen has toured widely in Europe and Japan. He has performed in festivals, concert series and venues such as Cafe Oto (London), Oorstof/Sound in Motion (Antwerpen), Improtest (Tallinn), GES21 (St. Petersburg), Pixelache, La-Bas Biennale, Akusmata Sound Festival, Helsinki Festival, World Village Festival (Helsinki), Time of Music (Viitasaari), Validi Karkia (Pori) and Himera (Turku).

In 2017 Hyvärinen was composer in residence at Stockholm’s Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) where he researched generative playback models for reproduction of so-called non-idiomatic music.

Hyvärinen has collaborated with musicians such as Ilia Belorukov, Natalia Castrillon, Sergio Castrillon, Hong Chulki, Léo Dupleix, Sandy Ewen, Seijiro Murayama, Jone Takamäki, Jack Wright.

In addition he has composed music for theatre and film and done multi-disciplinary performances with dancers and poets/writers.

*** North UK Winter Tour ***
28.02.2018 // 10.03.2018

As Steve Noble told me, "two gigs are already a tour!" So here we go ! New trio with drummer Charlie Collins and trumpeter Derek Saw !! Needless to say that will be a honor and extreme pleasure to replay with these two legends! uh no! in fact it does not cost anything to say it again! First stop will be at our beloved venue Access Space in Sheffield on March 1st (thanks to Jake Harries) and then, second stop at The Peer Hat in Manchester on March 4th. I would like to sincerely thank Tubers Music Manchester (David Birchall) and Tombed Visions Records (David McLean) for the support and to join their forces to organize this concert. Saxophonist David McLean will join us in an exclusive quartet for a second set and David Birchall will play duo with the drummer Phil Marks; it sounds like a crazy night of free improvised music !

Then I continue this journey in the north alone: I will intervene on March 5th and 6th in Michael Dunn' Creative Music Technology program for a lecture and presentation of my instrument, the "Prepared Chamber", and around DIY practices and instrument-building as well , plus a workshop with students on Recycled magnetic pickups at Music and Performing Arts at University Centre Doncaster !

Then, to conclude; direction Wigan for a few days to record a new duo album with my old friend and genius Adrian Beentjes, 6 years after our "Micro Sounds Biopsy" released on Zeromoon! A real ten days blast forthcoming !

For the past few years Anton Mobin and Charlie Collins musical paths have crossed and re-crossed, culminating eventually in their duo performance at the finale of Anton’s “Hugh Davies Project” at Sheffield’s Access Space. Another year passed, and a studio album recorded, their live encounter with brass specialist Derek Saw sealed the deal on the formation of this intense but thought provoking electro-acoustic trio.

CHARLIE COLLINS - waterphone & percussion

ANTON MOBIN - prepared chamber
DEREK SAW - trumpet & flugelhorn

ANTON MOBIN is an experimental musician, improviser and radio producer. He has developed DIY principles for experimental self-built instruments, which he calls "Prepared Cambers", in which there are arranged a multitude of every-day objects amplified by piezo-electric contact microphones.
He has run the label H.A.K. Lo-Fi Record since 2001, and over the last 15 years has collaborated and performed with many musicians, including Jello Biafra, Sonny Simmons, Bryan Lewis Saunders, London Improvisers Orchestra, Alexei Borisov, Benedict Taylor, Naoto Yamagishi, Daniel Thompson, Ayato, Will Connor, and Simon Henocq.

CHARLIE COLLINS is a creative percussionist, free polyrhythmic drummer, and sound artist, based in the UK. His work continues to explore the boundaries between pure sound and rhythm, frequently incorporating metal percussion and free improvisation. Early recordings for cult labels Industrial, Fetish, and Doublevision were soon followed by collaborations with many of the pioneers of free improvisation, while his interest in East Asian percussion and rhythm technique is displayed in current work with komungo player Eun-Jung Kim, pianist Yoko Miura, visual artist Bongsu Park, composer Ryoko Akama, and Butoh dancer Tsukasa Kamidate. He is one of a handful of musicians to have played both Derek Bailey’s Company Week and Top Of The Pops.

DEREK SAW has worked in free improvisation and experimental jazz since his move to Sheffield, UK, in the mid 1970s, where he later played in legendary electric free/jazz group Bass Tone Trap. In the mid eighties, together with Martin Archer, he formed the respected Hornweb saxophone quartet, while also leading Rhythm Division, which included drummer Paul Hession. Much in demand as a collaborator, his more recent activity includes touring regularly with Sonny Simmons Quartet, and performing and recording with both the Linda Sharrock Group and innovative theremin player Beatrix Ward-Fernandez Trio.

Anton Mobin, Kris Limbach & Pierce Warnecke

Co-production Middle Eight Recordings / Emitter Micro, 2017
AABA#10 / Em009, 300 copies digipack

Finally out! AKP now exists in a superb digipack edited by emitter micro and Middle Eight Recordings. It is a long-term project with F Pierce Warnecke and Kris Limbach, two long-time collaborators, soon 10 years since our first meeting in Berlin during a tour with Tom Thierus ! Here, a studio recording that was lost in a hard drive, then found, then we realized that the improv was not ultimate but that the sounds were excellent, so we went on a re-composition project with all these sound materials! 300 copies! Grab yours !!! (Crazy good work from MonotypeRec. pressing!)

"A few Sundays ago (actually about 278), three friends met up at a small city-studio with the intent of recording an album. They squeezed three tables into a triangle shape inside a square room, in a disposition that would let everyone see and hear each other equally well.

Then appeared, bit by bit, a very elegant chaos of machines and motors, objects and effects, software and noise boxes, cables and microphones, tapes and toys, and mixers and speakers which were expertly placed and/or randomly strewn across the wooden and glass tabletops, creating a kind of pawn-shop medical-research laboratory specialized in generating all things audio. More importantly, aside from the assortment of sound-related devices, were the hands, eyes and ears of the three participants. They began.

Improvisation is an elusive beast. Sometimes what should amount to an interesting result just doesn’t live up to expectations. Sometimes there is an explanation: weather, mood, health, astral alignments, kiwis. Sometimes there is none. Upon listening back multiple times to the sessions, the friends were unanimous: while there were excellent moments and interesting materials, the whole of the session was missing something. The project was abandoned.

Some Sundays later, it was proposed by one of them to take the existing materials and divide them in three, each person reworking the recordings into compositions, in the hopes that they might have a little more cohesion to them. The idea was ratified, the friends went to work and thus the present pieces were born.

More Sundays pass, more individual projects come and go. The friends stay in touch, but go their own ways. The music remains. Here it is."

Anton Mobin : prepared chamber, tapes
Kris Limbach : drums, tapes, rotors
Pierce Warnecke : laptop, electronics, microphones

Sound materials played live and multitrack recorded at emitter19 studios in Berlin, February 2012.
The sessions presented three parts that each musician took care and process/edit/mixed separately.

Mastered by Kris Limbach at e-19 studios in 2016.

Kris Limbach (de)

Kris Limbach (born in 1978) is a sound and visual artist residing in Berlin. Although his focus is on sound, he is also exploring constantly formats and aesthetics of cinema. In his sound art work he uses film-editing techniques, prepared drums, tape manipulation, no input mixing and a vast amount of raw and processed fieldrecordings. His performances for film and tape involves live super8 manipulation and scoring, an arte povera approach to expanded cinema. His experimental feature film project “The Lost Color” recently premiered at IBAFF Spain.

He released on labels such as Richard Garet’s Contour Editions, Staaltape, Modisti, Framework Radio, Agxivatein and collaborated with artists like Pierce Warnecke, Hopek Quirin, Anton Mobin, Jochen Arbeit, Rinus van Alebeek, Miguel A.

He curates, together with Pierce Warnecke, the emitter micro label and emitter micro festival, a biennial experimental sound Festival in Berlin. He is part of the artist collective Aktuelle Architektur der Kultur (AADK).

Pierce Warnecke (usa)

He's a human being, he makes electronic music and video as transmedia artist. His work explores combinations of synthetic sounds, electronic interference and object manipulation. He presents it in different places. He was born somewhere during the last century, and will die somewhere else during this century. He lives in a city in a country that's not his with three people he loves.
