review: uh fest @ fluc, vienna, 03.12.12


there weren‘t really many people. i read the description on the fluc’s website because i was bored and quickly decided to there as i am interested in all kinds of experimental/noise things. and it was all really good! i didn‘t know there were so many noise/soundscape projects in hungary. ok, i‘ve never been there.

12Z: were the most classical ‚jazzy‘ band of the night, with outburst of noise emerging in between more ambient soundscapes based on guitar+pedals with free jazz drums.

SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVE A DROWNING BITCH: a skilled guitar player and a really interesting way to use voice/beatboxing for creating drum sounds (not in the cheesy way here!). also really noisy yet with more focus on rhythm/meter than 12Z, which had sounds most of the time – roaming around freely through time and space. also loop-based i think, which i like to do myself (at home unfortunately).

GÁBOR LÁZÁR: maximalistic sounds + minimalistic visuals. musically classifiable as breakcore maybe? interesting, i‘d like to learn more about the software used.

BALÁZS PÁNDI & ZLATKO BARACSKAI: very (!!!) good freejazz drums by pandi, who – as i learned today – toured with MERZBOW & ATARI TEENAGE RIOT among other well known artists, and appears as real rad dude overall (i got a new favorite drummer now). he played this short set accompanied by loops and ableton/max live sound manipulation by baracskai. the whole free noise thing is great because it really frees your musical spirits. opens up new possiblities & so on.
