The Empty Gallery is proud to present a special two-day concert celebrating the 20th birthday of seminal Viennese experimental record label, Editions Mego. Founded in 1995 by Peter Rehberg (known for his work as Pita and as ½ of KTL), Editions Mego has released some of the most forward-thinking electronic music of the last two decades, including landmark albums by Florian Hecker, Fennesz, Jim O’Rourke, and others. Their output spans the gamut from minimal techno to extreme noise but is always characterized by an intensity and purity of sound which has become a Mego hallmark.

On September 25th, rising young musician, Klara Lewis will open the night with an immersive audio-visual performance featuring her pulsating organic rhythms which evoke variously the bottom of the ocean, the depths of the rainforest, and the fringes of the desert. Following this, Fennesz will grace our gallery with his first ever Hong Kong appearance, bathing the gallery in the warmth of his signature blend of hazy guitar melodies, drifting field recordings, and crunchy digital textures.

September 26th begins with a rare performance by Ilpo Vaisanen, better known as one half of the legendary minimal techno group Pansonic, alongside Mika Vainio. Hot off the release of a new album, Communist Dub, on Editions Mego, Ilpo will present a dub-influenced set of skittering analog rhythm tracks underpinned by earth shattering bass. Last, but certainly not least, the celebration will close with a performance by KTL, the duo of label-head Peter Rehberg and Stephen O’Malley of cult drone-metal band Sunn 0))).

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch this group of legendary experimental musicians! Come celebrate with us!

初秋之際,The Empty Gallery 特別隆重舉行一連天兩的音樂會,視以為維也納實驗音樂廠牌Editions Mego二十週年之慶生派對。於1995年由Peter Rehberg 創辦,Editions Mego 在過去20年間錄製及發行了大量經典及具前瞻性的電子音樂專輯,包括 Florian Hecker, Fennesz, Jim O’Rourke等著名音樂人標誌性的作品專集,其開創性及奠定性的影響力無庸置疑。Editions Mego 的出品涵蓋簡約鐵克諾到極化嘈音整個範疇的音類,在當中又處處透現極其密集及純粹的聲音,而這聲音竟又成為其獨一無異的特有標誌。

9月25日,嶄露頭角的年輕電子音樂人Klara Lewis 會以具迫力的視覺音樂表演為演出拉開序幕。她激動人心的有機節奏宛如喚醒藏在海底盡頭,森林深處及沙漠邊陲的神秘力量。緊接上場的是Fennesz 會以The Empty Gallery 為其首次亮相香港之地。他簽名式的音樂結合了如迷霧的結他旋律、遊離的田野錄音和清脆的數碼質感,能讓在場的觀眾如沐浴於和煦之域。

9月26日,開場的是Ilpo Vaisanen,他與Mika Vainio 組成簡約鐵克諾樂隊PANSONIC,極具傳奇色彩且廣人為熟悉。承接其新發行專輯Communist Dub (Editions Mego) 之勢,是次Ilpo將帶來一場難得一見的演奏,富有dub音樂風的類實物演奏音曲橫空掠過,作其支架的則是具撞擊力的重低音。而壓倒登場的將會是由廠牌龍頭大哥Peter Rehberg 和另類重金屬樂隊Sunn 0))) 成員Stephen O’Malley 所組成的二人樂隊KTL。

就來與一眾傳奇實驗音樂人一起慶祝!千萬不要錯過這可一不可再的機會!
