Sāra Davači (Sarah Davachi)

Pēc ilglaicīgas mūsdienu mūzikas un mūzikas teorijas studēšanas Kanādā un ASV, Sāra Davači koncertdarbībai pievērsās salīdzinoši nesen. Neskatoties uz to, ka viņas pirmais albums (kasetes formātā) tika izdots tikai 2013. gadā, Sāra Davači jau ir izpelnījusies mūzikas apskatnieku atzinību. Pirmo reizi publikas priekšā Sāra Davači uzstājās 2011. gadā un ar katru nākamo gadu viņas koncertu skaits ir audzis, 2016. gadā sasniedzot 30 koncertus – aptverot visas nozīmīgākās kultūras lielpilsētas Kanādā un ASV, kā arī pa reizei uzstājoties Berlīnē un Londonā. Šogad Davači jau ir sniegusi 39 koncertus ASV, Kanādā, Austrālijā, Vācijā, Nīderlandē, Lielbritānijā, Šveicē, Austrijā, Portugālē, Zviedrijā un Čehijā gan festivālos, gan atsevišķos koncertos pirms, pēc vai kopā ar dažādiem mūsdienu mūzikas pārstāvjiem: Suuns, Xiu Xiu, Crys Cole, Missing Organs, Klara Lewis un daudziem citiem.

Gabriele Ganjon-Frešē (Gabrielle Gagnon-Fréchet) Sāras Davači intervijas ievadā Kanādā bāzētā mūzikas portālā MUTEK šī gada jūnijā raksta: “Sāra Davači komponē savu pieredzi un apkārtējo vidi, balstīdamās minimālisma, kā arī visaptveroša psihoakustiskā fenomena un fizikalitātes mūzikā. Šīs “nereālās” pasaules attīstās pakāpeniski, Davači harmonijām, droniem, sarežģītajiem virstoņiem un dabiskajiem fāžu modeļiem pārvirzoties klusumā, vibrācijās arvien ielavoties pa kādai ekspresīvai un sarežģītai emocijai. “

Edgars Rubenis

Viens no apvienības Mona De Bo dibinātājiem un pamatsastāva mūziķiem, bet arvien biežāk uzstājas arī viens pats. Kopš 2012. gada Edgars padziļina savas mūziķa un komponista prasmes Hāgas Karaliskās konservatorijas Sonoloģijas institūtā Nīderlandē. Saņēmis piedāvājumu uzstāties vienā koncertā ar Sāru Davači, viņš piekrita atbraukt speciāli uz šo notikumu. Koncertā Edgars Rubenis atskaņos elektronisku skaņdarbu, kas apvieno viņa agrāko pieredzi improvizāciju mūzikā ar reducētiem ambientās mūzikas (valodas) tropiem. Radniecīgs abstraktās mākslas pasaulei, šis darbs atspoguļo Rubeņa interesi par "absolūto nepieciešamo minimumu", muzikālu skaņu kā objektu telpā un klausīšanās procesa struktūrvienībām.

Ierašanās no 19:30, koncerta sākums 20:00, durvis tiks slēgtas 20:15. Neiesakām bērniem jaunākiem par 12. gadiem. Aicinām koncertā ievērot pilnīgu klusumu. Koncertu apskaņos Jānis Krauklis.

Sarah Davachi

Sarah Davachi (b. 1987, Calgary, Canada) holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master's degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California. As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Davachi's compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the antiquated instruments and forgotten sonics of a bygone era in analog synthesis, with concurrent treatment of acoustic sources – particularly organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds – often involving de-familiarization through processing. Her work considers the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, utilizing extended durations and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and psychoacoustic artifacts.

“In light of all of this, it’s incredibly cathartic to hear Sarah Davachi’s rich opening drone: a warm hum, confident in its intention, unwavering in its pitch, persisting with the consistency of a solid object. Such simplicity doesn’t last. The drone becomes the bed to which Davachi tethers a high tone that somewhat resembles a guitar solo, chicaning across the upper frequencies like an airborne kite. It subdivides. There are two now. Then three or four. I lose the ability to count, and I lose the ability to differentiate between them. More crucially, I lose the ability to discern which sounds are coming from Davachi’s instruments and which are the product of acoustic collision and psychoacoustic refraction. At one point I turn my head and the harmonic profile completely changes, introducing new frequencies and muffling others, obliterating any sense of central truth within her music and within my own listening; we are both unmoored and both blissfully unsure. The guitar solos continue to swirl above, still self-indulgent in their acrobatics of pitch even as they assume their place within something unfathomably vaster. Gradually, the piece returns to that one low drone. We descend from the ether of possibility, borne out in colliding overtones and echoes, and gradually return to that irrefutable hum. We’re back in the basement again, and I reach out to clasp the table in front of me. Just to be sure.” – from Jack Chuter review on performance of Sarah Davachi in August 10th, 2017 in RYE WAX in London for ATT:Magazine (24.08.2017), http://www.attnmagazine.co.uk/performance/12271

“The ambient music that Sarah Davachi makes is profoundly thermal. Thick and sonorous, it pushes up, welling up from silence, weaving harmoniums, string instruments, and electronics together in ways that feel indivisible, if not eternal. And even where her recordings bring slightly different pressures to bear—the soft, rippling Barons Court, the sloshy, church-organ languor of Dominions—the overall effect is similar: a benign hypnosis, the will to dissipate, a gentle weightlessness. To succumb to any entry in the Vancouver composer’s growing discography is to wade idly into the surf at low tide, only to suddenly find yourself 15 yards away from the shore.” – from Raymond Cummings review on Sarah Davachi's album All My Circles Run for Pitchfork (16.03.2017), https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/22772-all-my-circles-run/

"Like a lot of minimalist art, Sarah Davachi’s music appears simple on the surface....Her music consists mainly of long held tones. The real action is not found in the notes themselves but in their microtonal variations and the wealth of overtones, harmonics, and ghostly pulses produced by the friction between them. Her work belongs to a tradition of deep, shimmering drone music that... is also profoundly expressive. Her filters sweep back and forth in slow, deliberate, and often unpredictable movements that suggest the careful thought process that drives the hand behind them. The subtlest change can set in motion complicated chain reactions—ebbing and flowing, wheels turning within wheels." – from Philip Sherburne review on Sarah Davachi's album Vergers for Pitchfork (29.11.2016), https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/22533-vergers/

“Sarah Davachi composes experiences, her environments built on a minimalist yet all-enveloping music of psychoacoustic phenomena and physicality. These “irreal” worlds evolve gradually, Davachi's precise drones, harmonies, complex overtones and natural phasing patterns shift from harmonic progression into stillness, always with an expressive, complex emotion lurking in the vibrations.” – from Gabrielle Gagnon-Fréchet interview with Sarah Davachi for MUTEK (15.01.2017), http://www.mutek.org/en/magazine/806-sarah-davachi-les-espaces-sont-des-instruments

“In Davachi’s music, I hear a negotiation between human instigation and letting be. Sometimes I catch little traces of melodic patterns, as she sends synthesizers through little zig-zagging motifs that rise out of the drones and return to them. At other points, she simply allows the instrument to play itself, leaving harmonics and timbral inconsistency to form shapes of their own accord. Prolonged synthesizer tones falter gently, creating undulations in texture like chips and dents on an old antique; drones curdle together to form overtones that flicker and dance above the central hums.” – from Jack Chuter interview with Sarah Davachi for ATT:Magazine (7.11.2016), http://www.attnmagazine.co.uk/features/10804

Edgars Rubenis

In his compositional and concert practice is involved with improvisatory (yet, premeditated) music. Based in traditions of musical and visual minimalism (La Monte Young, Eliane Radigue, Eleh, Kazimir Malevitch, Mark Rothko, Ad Reinhardt) Rubenis creates long durational music pieces that explore notions of emptiness, zeroing (in/out) and abandonment of the known self.

By using a reduced and abstracted version of drone/ambient music, Rubenis is interested in creating situations in which experiences of varied time scales and notions of personal space become possible. Abstraction and reduction in this case are seen more than more aesthetic choices, their functions being those of actual “makers of space” and “shifters of time.”

Aside from his solo practice Rubenis is known as one of the two founding members (together with drummer Edgars Eihmanis) of the experimental rock ensemble Mona De Bo. Created in 2005 Mona De Bo has often been noted as one of the most artistically vivid and daring rock music ensembles to have originated in the Baltic states since early 2000’s. Rubenis has been involved as composer and guitar player for all of the band’s studio releases (five up to date, 2017). Mona De Bo has been repeatedly touring the Baltic states, Europe, Russia and USA. it’s music has been played on BBC radio, and mentioned in reviews on such platforms as “the Wire” and “the Quietus”.

So far Rubenis has released one solo record – “Mythoscope”, published in 2014 by Latvian record label and makers of the renowned festival of adventurous music “Skaņu Meža ieraksti.” since 2012 he has been living in the Netherlands where he currently pursues a master’s degree studying electronic music and composition in the Institute of Sonology in the Hague.
