Fading Ground in Jazzism

Review by Ken Vos in Jazzism 3 – 2018 of the Fading Ground cd. In dutch; loosely translated: “The album has the character of a work in progress that holds a lot of promise and sounds intruiging, but also has quite some unpolished sides. This production is already of historical importance.” Nice!

Fading Ground Live

Finally two live shows with Josué Amador and Dirar Kalash, the trio that recorded the Fading Ground cd. Thursday at Helicopter, together with Sweat Tongue and Zad Kokar, and saturday at City Art in Den Haag, with Sho Shin duo. Can’t wait to finally play live with these guys!

Myriads 19

Thursday is MYRIADS #19 in Helicopter. With Qualm!, Haddow, and Tony. Groovey free jazz noise, improvised explorations with accidental acoustics & electronics, and a percussive performance with found objects and electricity.

QUAM! is a new Belgian/French trio operating on the border of free jazz, noise, and groovey things. Bass, drums, and an electronically enhanced trumpet by Farida Amadou, Tom Malmendier, and Timothée Quost. They just recorded a record for Colin Webster’s Raw Tonk Records so there you go.

HADDOW is a persona for improvised exploration of home made instruments, hardware processing and accidental acoustics. Jagged rhythm and instinctive voice build and crumble forming a primal sound between beat and drone.

TONY Guarino is a percussionist from NYC who is currently living in The Hague. He is interested in exploring the instrumental potentials of found objects and materials through improvisation.
