TORBA (it)
sound collage, musique (in)concrète, field recordings and electronics.

"Torba is a solo project by Mauro Diciocia, a crude sonic collage that combines sounds and techniques hijacked from the musique concrète/tape music tradition with a modern and acousmatic approach to noise music and post-industrial soundscapes. Active since 2009, torba is an object in perpetual motion where the only constant element is represented by the organic use of field recordings/found footage and their manipulation through magnetic tapes and digital processors.
He released material on labels such as Angoisse, Total Black, a dear girl called Wendy, Mazurka Editions, Fragment Factory, Monorail Trespassing, Cønjuntø Vacíø among others.
He shared the stage with Sewer Election, Damien Dubrovnik, Puce Mary, Croatian Amor, Ketev, Dave Phillips, Gordon Ashworth, Pedestrian Deposit, Neutral, Arv & Miljo, Tommi Keränen, Fejhed, Umpio, Rashad Becker, Händer Som Vårdar, MAAAA, Broken Lights, Daniel Löwenbrück, Marcellvs L and more."

Knotwilg & gr'ambacht present:
K-Group (nzl) + Taku Sugimoto / Minami Saeki (jap)

K-Group is Paul Toohey's solo drone project. In mid/late nineties he was member of arguably one of the most influential drone outfits ever Surface Of The Earth. A band whom have set a bookmark in feedbacking drones worldwide. K-Group just followed this road with a cd on Corpus H. while the Fusetron/Fisheye outputs teamed him up with the electronics from Omit. The biggest difference with other drone outfits being they are going deeper, and know how to stop a good track and not dragging it endlessly.

This resulted in legendary releases from both projects on Fusetronsound and Corpus Hermeticum. Some of these are reissued on Keith Utech or will be on Thin Wrist Recordings. A K-Group 7" is also scheduled on the notorious @I Dischi Del Barone for this year.

NZ fans shouldn't be convinced by this news (and i do know every single fan of you within Belgium haha) but how to convince musicfans whom are totally unaware of this? Obviously for people whom love Tony Conrad and other minmalists. But also for Pita/KTL fans for instance. And i am pretty sure Sunn O))) fans might dig this. Stephen O' Malley probably listened even very closely.

But have a listen and Judge for yourselves
