’teaming up for a confrontational sonic attack’
’Bringing together the most calamitous materials from their home planets of Noise, glitch, and free improvisation, TONE and TALIBAM! are at once the likeliest and unlikeliest of conspirators. Despite making his home in New York since 1971, TONE’s foundational electronic work harkens back to his early days in revolutionary Japanese avant-garde collectives Group ONGAKU and HI RED CENTER, and resonates with his groundbreaking deconstructions of digital CD sound in the 1980s. Meanwhile in the post-art worlds of millennial Brooklyn, TALIBAM! have cranked out their own absurd, profane and unclassifiable improvisational style, bringing their provocations around the world, and proficiently mediating jazz, rock, and hip-hop along the way; trombonist SAM KULIK brings an acoustic element to the mix that invokes the live sonic mixes of MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA. In their collaboration “Double Automatism”, they forge a confrontational new alliance in the transnational history of experimental sound, with the noisiest consequences imaginable.’ (David Novak, author of “Japanoise: Music at the Edge of Circulation”)
