Re-Ghoster Extended - Archipel Festival

Dreaming with the lights on (2023) - Commissioned by Archipel Festival
Legos, Lagos, Logos (extended version)
Improvisation from Extended-Impressions

On the border between written music and improvisation, Re-Ghoster deploys its sounds on a double trajectory, that of acoustic instruments put under tension in a medium replicated by that of a tape recorder, an imperfect echo whose voice whispers and remembers these past moments. A five-person conversation crackles and blows, from which one struggles to distinguish what is haunting and what is haunted.

This concert is also an opportunity to discover Nicolas Field's new piece, Dreaming with the light on, commissioned by the Archipel festival.

Re-Ghoster Extended - Mill

Re-Ghoster grew out of a chance encounter between Anglo-Swiss percussionist Nicolas Field, Italian tape & electronics wizard Valerio Tricoli and Swiss pianist Thomas Florin in Geneva in 2018. They quickly discovered a like-minded longing to experiment and distort sound textures in new ways, to explore compositional concepts by using improvisation and the impulse of the moment. They decided to let their strong personalities clash. Re-Ghoster was born and as a trio, they released a first album – ‘Or Not All’ - in 2019.

Embracing Re-Ghoster as a constant evolutionary process and always on the lookout to extend the potential and creativity of the project, the trio invited American trumpeter Nate Wooley and Anglo-American vocalist Fritz Welch - two major artists of the experimental scene - to join them in 2021 on the occasion of a tour in Switzerland and the UK with venues like Cave12 in Genève and Café OTO in London. This quintet format was baptized Re-Ghoster Extended. In 2023, Re-Ghoster Extended will record a new album and they are invited by Swiss Festival Archipel for a special creation.

To conclude their reunion at Festival Archipel, the quintet – with Jérôme Noetinger replacing Valerio Tricoli for this occasion - will perform exclusively in MILL on Saturday, 8 April 2023. Expect acoustic instruments being fed to tape, magnetised, digested, re-eaten, reworked and regurgitated again by the machine. Expect ghostly bursts and roars emerging from nothingness. Expect chirps and shrills exploding in tension with each other. Expect a quest into the depths of sound by a quintet of extraordinary experimentalists.

Jazztronica #1

The association Konnekt & the Collectif Nocturne present a new event that honours this emerging and futuristic scene that mixes jazz and electronic music.
If each musical genre is a language, the artists of this evening are certainly polyglot. The experiments of Zerolex Trio, equipped with a saxophone, a double bass and electronic machines. Then the connivance of the synths and drums of the Belgian duo Lander & Adriaan. An irresistible call to dance!

Production: Konnekt x Collectif Nocturne

𝗟𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 & 𝗔𝗱𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗮𝗻
Lander & Adriaan is a Belgian duo consisting of drummer Lander Gyselinck (Stuff.,Beraadgeslagen,LABtrio) and Adriaan Van de Velde (Pomrad, Mauro Pawlowski, J. Bernardt).
Their shared penchant for digital synths and 90s alternative dance brought them together for the first lockdown in 2020 for some fiery jams. After a series of successful gigs, they recorded an album in the summer of 2021, which was released in the spring of 2022.
They mix, merge and distort Chicago juke, Detroit techno, UK Funky and rave music with the diversity of jazz; they take you into a world of unabashed pleasure, assumed weirdness and pure excitement. They call it 'Post Nudism Rave'. Others call it free rave or sophisticated rave. What is certain is that their music creates an imaginary world that has as many fairy meadows populated by goblins as it does dark underground tunnels filled with slimy aliens and stinking trolls. You'll experience the quantum chills of interplanetary ambient drones, soft frenetic percussion, sweet pulpy melodies, soggy bass lines, all delicately woven into a raw, oozing music that calls for dancing!

Already noticed for his first records on Eklektik and Cascade Records, Zerolex has also proven himself as a band with Cotton Claw (Laureate Fair, Prix Chorus and Inoui PdB, Opération Iceberg, Eurosonic). Since the EP "Touché-Coulé" in 2019, Zerolex has been exploring a new playground, and has taken the form of a trio, with Claudio Ibarra on double bass and Chromé, on saxophone and composition, now accompanying him on stage.
With its jazz and electronic influences, Zerolex now leaves more room for harmonies and choirs, combining the warmth of analogue synths with the organic sounds of traditional instruments. The release of the single "Le Temple / Le Nectar" on BMM Records in 2021 marks the tenth year of activity for the Bisontin producer, who is always eager to take new directions.
