DRONE ACTIVITY IN PROGRESS

431 rue Saint-Martin, Montréal, Quebec,

Québec’s influential metal scene will be at the core of one of the Academy’s signature event formats: Drone Activity In Progress. First staged at the Red Bull Music Academy New York in 2013, this latest edition will assemble some of the most exciting artists from the local metal circuit, as well as connecting the dots to related forms of experimental, noise and drone music. Pierre-Marc Tremblay of legendary Québécois black metal outfit Akitsa presents his Âmes Sanglantes power electronics solo project, while Away, drummer and album art designer of thrash metal giants Voivod, gives a rare solo percussion performance. Melanie Mongeon and Topon Das, husband-and-wife leaders of Montréal grindcore band Fuck The Facts, will also present their first show as a duo. The all-Canadian lineup is rounded off by the debut of a new sound and light show from ambient drone master Tim Hecker, plus appearances by his frequent collaborator Kara-Lis Coverdale, Eric Quach’s experimental solo guitar project thisquietarmy, former AIDS Wolf member Drainolith and Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley.

SUNN O))) @ Ruhrtriennale / Turbinenhalle at Jahrhunderthalle

SUNN O))) has been invited to perform at the Ruhrtriennale under the artistic direction of the Dutch director Johan Simons. We will perform in the Turbinenhalle at an old power plant called Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. The theme of Mr. Simons' programme is “Seid umschlungen” (be embraced) – a gesture of social, political and geographical embracement.

Festival announcement in English.

Sunn O))) turn sound into a physical experience. The leading American drone or doom metal band made their name with their exaggerated use of drones, low frequency sounds of extended duration. The band position themselves between the first Western drone compositions of American composer La Monte Young and a heavy metal aesthetic, which they subvert with the extremely slow tempo of their playing. Their focus on extreme bass frequencies creates an extraordinary physical experience for the listener.  Sunn O)))’s music can be just as intensely felt as heard. Their concerts are well known for being staged in a ritualistic atmosphere.   
Last year the band caused an international sensation by collaborating with The Walker Brothers’ singer Scott Walker. Their joint album ‘Soused’ gained worldwide acclaim. This year the band will present their new album ‘Kannon’ at the Ruhrtriennale. While Sunn O)))’s previous work has been characterized by abstract and atmospherically orientated approaches, ‘Kannon’ references religious concepts of Asian origin: ‘Kannon’ is one aspect of the Buddha, personified as the Goddess of Mercy, and can be understood to hear the sounds or cries of the world.

:::::

SUNN O))) will join several other EU dates in early-mid September, including a very special concert at “Labirinto della Masone” (Masone Labyrinth) opened in Fontanellato, near Parma in the northern region of Emilia-Romagna. More news soon on all of that.

Thank you for your attention, belief, interest and support. 

SUNN O)))
