ENJIN (Rodrigo Fuentealba / Philip Weiss / Tsubasa Hori)
SPEAK EASY (Ute Wassermann / Phil Minton / Thomas Lehn / Martin Blume)

Enjin is the Citadelics Summer 17 carte blanche of Ghent-Chilean guitar player Rodrigo Fuentealba with his MannGold buddy Phillip Weiss and Tsubasa Hori, a traditional Japanese percussionist of the Taiko drum. They felt a thrill, the audience an ecxitement. We decided it is time for a second chapter in their conversation. After 14 years being member of the popular Taikodrum group Kodo, Tsubasa Hori moved to Antwerp, where she participates in numerous collaborative projects with artists from various genres using her inspiration of the classical Japanese music tradition..

The European quartet Speak Easy uses the quicksilver analog synthesizer squiggles and stabs of Thomas Lehn and the scrabbling percussion of Martin Blume to sandwich the otherworldly vocal acrobatics of Phil Minton and Ute Wassermann. Here the singers produce sounds just as abstract and unidentifiable as any instrumentalist, interacting and prodding not just one another, but their other two cohorts, in a dazzling rise-and-blowout.

G A B B R O (Marc De Maeseneer / Hanne De Backer)
SOUNDING TEARS (Mat Maneri / Lucian Ban / Evan Parker)

g a b b r o. Belgian baritone saxophone players Hanne De Backer and Marc De Maeseneer make music in the broadest available musical spectrum. Nevertheless, they go back for their very 1st release to the jazz and freejazz tradition and give it a personnal, contemporary and unique touch.
