18th Feb – Han-earl Park, Matthew Collings, Owen Green

This looks like a fun evening, not a Grind Sight night, but hosted by Matt Collings, who’s also performing his piece ‘Flags of a Dead Ship’

The Details:

Location – St Cecilia’s Hall – 8pm – 18th of Feb

The Line up:

Han-Earl Park

Improviser, guitarist, constructor and club-runner Han-earl Park works from / within / around the traditions of idiom-agnostic, experimental improvised musics, sometimes engineering theater, sometimes inventing ritual.

“Bandy-legged Han-earl Park (gitah)… drugged the ref and delivered a few kidney punches with a horseshoe in his boxing mitt.” – Jamie Smith (Owlhouse Recordings)

Owen Green

One half of the group Sileni, Owen’s eclectic performances are always surprising treats.

13th March – Jasper TX

Jasper TX
is the musical moniker of Sweden’s Dag Rosenqvist. Using electric and acoustic guitar, piano, pump organ, melodica, glockenspiel, voice and various other instruments as a foundation for his compositions, Dag has managed to create his own musical universe. Elements of post rock, drone, improvisation, noise and lo-fi aesthetics mix with a melodic pop sensibility that results in something quite unique.
Over the last couple of years he has performed live in the United Kingdom, Norway, Belgium, Sweden and Germany. His past live performances have been described as “physical”, “intense” and “stunningly beautiful”.

“Simultaneously epic and remote, Jasper TX succeeds in his noisy niche with a lot of collected meanderings folded and compressed into songs that sing without words.” – Dallas Observer

“Jasper TX proves that the grandest of gestures are best realised through the most personal of compositions. Stunning.” – Boomkat
