POZNAN - 26/10 - Tama - Announcement

We are bringing the circle for our debut show in Poland at he excellent club Tama in Poznan.

Representing circlists Frank Wiedemann (Âme Live), Sebastian Mullaert and Vril.

It’s always exciting to mix artists from different musical worlds, as then we have even less of a clue where the improvisation will take us. We remember the moment of excitement just before powering up at Movement Festival in Detroit earlier this year and the feeling of literally not having any idea how artists as diverse as Amp Fiddler, Mathew Jonson, Sebastian Mullaert and Vril can fuse their sounds in something coherent. Little did we know that turned out to be one of the most fun performances we ever experienced. We plan to take things in even more diverse perspective in the future, by bringing together artists from completely different universes like our forthcoming concert at Malmö Live with Subchamber Ensmble.

Let’s see where the flow takes us on this one.

MALMO - 27/09 - Malmö Live - In Concert

MALMO - 27/09 - Malmö Live - In Concert

We are opening an exciting new chapter for Circle Of Live with series of improvised performances, bringing together artists from the contemporary classical and electronic music scene. The first of the Circle Of Live “In Concert” event series will take place as an aftershow to the Jeff Mills & Tony Allen gig on September 27th at the spectacular Malmö Live concert house.

The fully improvised live performance will feature two electronic artists: Sebastian Mullaert playing alongside Laurence Guy, who will make his highly anticipated debut in the project. They will weave their creative expressions into those of three instrumentalists from Subchamber Ensemble. Under the creative direction of New York film composer Nathan Larson, Subchamber Ensemble will feature himself, performing alongside Gerda Holmquist on cello, as well as Elina Nygren on viola - both members of the critically acclaimed Vindla String Quartet.

As usual we have no clue where the flow of improvisation will take us and there is only one way to find out.

Waking Life - 14/08 - Nikita Goile

We are delighted to announce that our stage at Waking Life Festival this year will be graced by one last minute addition to the roster of performing artists. Nikita Goile is a different kind of artist than the ones we usually work with. She expresses through movement rather than sound.

Two words which describe her work are timeless and organic. She uses improvisation to open up and escape restrictive habits and existing patterns, allowing mind and body to be genuine and drift off. The subtle journey between opposite qualities is at the core of her work, as well as the notion of control and its loss which generate, and regenerate, a perpetual evolution.

Nikita will join our concert for the festival opening ceremony alongside Johanna Knutsson, Leafar Legov, Sebastian Mullaert and Matt Karmil. This will also be the first appearance by Erased Tapes Records very own vibraphone magician Masayoshi Fujita. A totally new constellation and so much to look forward to!
