The Key Studio Sessions: Bardo Pond

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 9.59.53 PM

Nice live recordings in their great studio and some nice photos!

“Most exciting about this week’s Key Session: not only did Bardo Pond perform recent selections from Peace on Venus (“Kali Yuma Blues,” “Taste”) and a brilliant track from their self-titled 2010 record called “Await The Star (The Stars Behind)”…they also debuted two unreleased songs. Stream the session below, drift away on the fuzztone waves of “Red Curtains” and thrill to the krautrock crescendo of “untitled.””

MMMM Presents: Cinema Soloriens with: Vapour Theories, Bhob Rainey, and Moral Crayfish Upstairs at Kung Fu Neck Tie


SO come join us for a rather spacey sunday.

here’s info on the artists playing:

Cinema Soloriens

A tremendous saxophonist with a terrific ability to make gorgeous video poems- Does great things with sounds and videos.

Since 1995, In addition to continued collaboration with Marshall Allen, Harrar has performed with many talented musicians and groups within Cinema Soloriens and outside: Arthur Doyle, Chris Cutler & Geoff Leigh (Artaud Beats, Henry Cow), Daevid Allen (Gong, Soft Machine), Michael Gibbons (Bardo Pond), Rogier Smal (Dagora), Giovanni Barcella, Nat Birchall, Eric Thielemans, Charles Cohen, Cactus Truck, Yahya Abdul-Majid & Art Jenkins (Sun Ra Arkestra) to name a few.

Vapour Theories:
(Brothers Michael and John Gibbons from Bardo Pond)

Drone Music for non-drone’s

From Flipped out
“The Vapour Theories radiate into the world, and make themselves evident in various ways according to the substance in which they manifest. Therefore they manifest tone in a threefold manner; by instinct, as animal sound, and in advanced Spiritual tones. The Vapours which they derive from the physical and animal elements are temporal; that which they derive from the Spirit is eternal. Vapours are the Father of Wisdom, and the means to gain all Wisdom is from Vapours. A slight study of the science of sound soon makes us familiar with the fact that sound is vibration and that different sounds will mold sand or other light materials into figures of varying form. The Vapour Theories have learned at the Fountain of Vapours to play the Song Of Vapours, which cradles into existence whatever such a musician desires.”

Bhob Rainey:

Many of the concepts, philosophies, and even extended saxophone techniques embraced by Bhob Rainey are ubiquitous in the world of free music. However, to call Bhob a free player, would marginalize the uniqueness of his sound-based concept.


Moral Crayfish

I’ve Known Dan Cohoon for a long time. An Excellent Photographer and noise conjurer. His approach to guitar is extremely non-traditional in that he doesn’t play the guitar, so much as he dismantles it…
