LET THERE BE DRONE (MULTIPLE GAINS STAGES)

All Hail Life Metal.

Sunn O)))) are pleased to present their first European tour since 2016, and the premier tour of their 2019-2020 season. Including their first ever French tour (hors Paris), returning to old haunt Kampnagel in Hamburg, mythical Paradiso in Amsterdam, as well as headlining Elevate festival in Graz, and Divadlo Archa Prague.

Formed in March 1998 Sunn O))) have been challenging the ways we think about music in the twenty years since. A synthesis of diverse: drone, metal, minimalism/maximalism verging on the edge of pure sonic ecstasy, meditation and trance through the power, beauty and colour of sound pressure emanating from their legendary Sunn O))) backline and their earth shaking tectonic compositions of existence, dedicated to the mysteries of life and the cosmos. 

O))) has two core members : Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson, supported by a tribe of collaborators. From 1999’s The Grimmrobe Demos to 2018’s Downtown LA Rehearsal/Rifftape; from their now classic albums Black One (2006), Monoliths & Dimensions (2009), Soused (2014) & Kannon (2015) to their forthcoming to-be-revealed-but-recently-completed two 2019 album epics, founders Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson have forged paths and connections between the worlds of Metal, contemporary art, drone, new music, jazz and minimalism with startling results while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density, elasticity of time, blossoming of saturation viable only to the disciples and fetishists of electric guitar, synthesis, multiple gain stages and some of history's greatest pure valve amplification. 

The current concert line-up extends around power trio of Stephen O'Malley (Guitar), Greg Anderson (Guitar), and their valve guru and long time collaborator Tos Nieuwenhuizen (Moog), aside selected special guests. Together they relentlessly pursue their exploration and elaboration of Sunn O)))'s legendary experiments with the physicality of sound in instrumental based live performances with remarkable events at some of their favourite venues, as well as concerts in singular events and spaces such as Italy’s impressive cultural complex Labrinto Della Masone, Germany’s Ruhrtriennale Festival of Arts, Royal Festival Hall & The Barbican in London, Bergen's Dømkirke and Manchester International Festival being a few emblematic examples. 

Rejoin them in their glorious pursuit of the monumental heaviness. 

-Etienne Ni Mhaille, 2018

LA TRAVERSÉE DU DRONE (ÉTAGES DE GAINS MULTIPLES)

Ave Life Metal!

Sunn O))))) a le plaisir de présenter sa première tournée européenne depuis 2016, et la première étape de sa saison 2019 dont sa toute première tournée française (hors Paris), son retour au Kampnagel de Hambourg, au mythique Paradiso d'Amsterdam, et en tête d'affiche des festivals Elevate à Graz et Divadlo Archa à Prague.

Formé en mars 1998, Sunn O)))) remet en question depuis 20 ans la façon dont la musique est conçue. Une synthèse de sonorités diverses : le drone, le métal, le minimalisme/maximalisme sur la lame de l'extase sonore pure, de la méditation et de la transe à travers la puissance, la beauté et la couleur de la pression sonore qui sort de leur légendaire rangée arrière d’amplis et d'enceintes Sunn O))) et leurs compositions tectoniques, faisant trembler la terre, dédiées aux mystères de la vie et du cosmos.

O)))) compte deux membres principaux : Stephen O'Malley et Greg Anderson, accompagnés par une tribu de collaborateurs. Des Grimmrobe Demos en 1999 à Downtown LA Rehearsal/Rifftape en 2018; de leurs albums désormais classiques Black One (2006), Monoliths & Dimensions (2009), Soused (2014) & Kannon (2015) jusqu'à leurs deux albums à paraître en 2019, bien qu’ils n’aient pas encore été dévoilés, les deux membres fondateurs, Stephen O'Malley et Greg Anderson ont fait la jonction et établi de nouvelles passerelles entres le Métal, l'Art Contemporain, le Drone, la Musique Contemporaine, le Jazz et le Minimalisme avec des résultats surprenants, tout en restant fidèles à leurs éternels principes de volume, de densité et de masse sonore, d'élasticité du temps, d’émergence d’une saturation uniquement viable pour les disciples et fétichistes de guitare électrique, de synthèse, d’étages à gains multiples et parmi les meilleurs systèmes de pure amplification à valve de l’histoire. 

La formation actuelle se déploie autour du trio Stephen O'Malley (Guitare), Greg Anderson (Guitare), et de leur gourou des valves et collaborateur de longue date Tos Nieuwenhuizen (Moog), entourés de leurs invités. Ensemble, ils poursuivent sans relâche l'exploration et l'élaboration de Sunn O)))), les expériences légendaires qu'ils mènent sur la physicalité du son à travers des lives dans leurs salles préférées, mais aussi des performances dans des espaces culturels singuliers comme le complexe culturel italien Labrinto della Masone, le Ruhrtriennale Festival of Arts en Allemagne, le Royal Festival Hall et le Barbican à Londres, Domkirke à Bergen et le Manchester International Festival entre autres exemples emblématiques. 

Venez vous joindre à eux dans cette quête flamboyante du son monumental.

On November 22nd, French music, art and publishing imprint Shelter Press will release another chapter of its on-going documentation of the work of Gisèle Vienne 
‘The Pyre: versions distilled to stereo’ is the score composed and recorded by KTL (Stephen O’Malley & Peter Rehberg) for the dance piece ‘The Pyre’, written and directed by Gisèle Vienne.
The music created by KTL (Peter Rehberg and Stephen O’Malley) incorporates invisible and absent elements – ghosts, one might say. It proceeds from simulated diegetic sounds (which are part of the action) interwoven with real sounds - a musical creation that makes up an extra-diegetic sound score. This composition dizzyingly sculpts the space on stage and generates an impression of great spatial depth, which activates light-sculptures that in turn evoke the illusion of a tunnel, whose depth also results in a play of reflections.
Through these different media, the aim is to develop and shatter – without looking to resolve – the exceptional intensity that can arise from the dialectical tension between presence and absence, as well as from the characters that are seeking flight.
The music, originally performed on a multichannel spatialisized soundsystem has been distilled to this stereo version for home use, halfspeed mastered and cut by Matt Colton.
This record announces - and is one chapter - in the forthcoming release of the first monograph dedicated to the work of French choreographer Gisèle Vienne and documented by French photographer Estelle Hanania. This book - is one of Shelter Press’ most ambitious to date - catalog number 100 - will be released in Spring 2019.
 
note: Back in 2015, Shelter Press also released the score of ‘‘Eternelle Idole’’, composed by Stephen O’Malley for the eponymous dance piece by french choreographer Gisèle Vienne. The record included a 24 pages booklet with photographs from the piece shot by Estelle Hanania.
 
First edition of 700 copies on clear green wax. Printed artwork on innersleeve with matt varnish and outersleeve with aqueous UV finish.
DL card included.
