Otomo Yoshihide / Émilie Skrijelj / Tom Malmendier + Lê Quan Ninh
Récif · Festival Jazz à Lyon
A summit meeting of improvised and experimental music.
Otomo Yoshihide, Émilie Skrijelj and Tom Malmendier
Otomo Yoshihide is to turntablists what Platini is to Juventus. A perfectly striped zebra who scores in the top corner. A great adventurer on the Japanese scene, founder of the mythical Ground Zero, Yoshihide is a masterpiece of world noise, at ease in electronic litany as in pop or sharp improvisation, piled up with clatter. Emilie Škrijelj is also a platinum player, with a penchant for volleyed covers. Tom Malmendier is a drummer whose energy is made to be spent. Their music is full of veins and textures. This trio offers itself as a DJ set for contemporary record players, where hyper-inventive noise is created by hand, with impressive dexterity. Never mind the future, this music is played in the present. In white noise as in its perspectives. Concrete abstractions, evocative, radical and furiously imagined.
Lê Quan Ninh
A solo performance by Lê Quan Ninh is much more than a simple concert: it’s a moment of grace and raw beauty. A major figure on the improvised music scene, this percussionist has been moving between interpretations of contemporary music and free improvisation since the 1980s. Through his minimalist playing, Lê Quan Ninh reveals uncommon skill and virtuosity. Over the years, he has shared the stage with other great improvisational talents such as Daunik Lazro, Michel Doneda, Beñat Achiary, Paul Rogers and Peter Kowald (to name but a few). A must-see concert to plunge into the universe of a tireless explorer of musical territories.
