Maher Shalal Hash Baz (Japan): – Maher Shalal Hash Baz is an ensemble of variable size, based on the sacred & secular compositions of Tori Kudo. Finely orchestrated notations on flowers, interweaving wind arrangements suggesting the passage of bullet trains, scripture, & reflections on the imperfections in what may have been created as a perfect world. Mistakenly referred to as naïve, „primitive“ may be a more correct adjective, an allegory with the Flemish Primitive movement: like the mastery of painters such as Bruegel or Bosch, Kudo uses notes and available musicians to describe the complexities of his and invariably, our lives, instead of paint & canvas. As with the Northern Renaissance painters, the personal messages become universal. – Maher Shalal Hash Baz started in the mid 1980’s as Kudo and a co-worker discovered shared musical tastes and the resulting musical exercises invariably colored buy the mesmerizing cadence of Reiko Kudo’s voice. The humble beginnings of this project, belie the current cult status here in Europe and it’s contemporary importance in the hierarchy of Japanese underground music. In March 2018 Tori Kudo will be back among us, with an unknown number of compatriots, supported by musicians associated with the group Le Ton Mité from Brussels. – Here is a video interview from MTV’s „This Is Our Music“******Le Ton Mité (Brüssel, BE): Born in Arkansas in 1998 matured in Olympia, Washington & based in Brussels for the last 10 years, LE TON MITÉ has toured, transformed & immigrated across the globe as a musical soundtrack of the voyages & life of McCloud Zicmuse. Part chamber pop ensemble, part medieval sect, part backing band, part contemporary dance troupe, expect anything: the wind section becomes a chorus of guitars & voices, silence is louder than sound, fireworks fail to ignite, a dance party erupts… On this tour the group will play excerpts from „Passé Composé Futur Conditionnel“, a double LP released last year on the mythic Made to Measure series of Crammed Discs. with the help of members of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, multiple voices, guitars, saxophones, clarinets, keyboards, recorders & perhaps even a musical saw.**** The Pastels (Glasgow, DJ Set)**** Markus Acher (The Notwist, München, DJ Set)
