Info om artisterna:
DD/MM/YYYY (Can, Deleted Art)
DD/MM/YYYY is a Toronto based band that has been together since the cold winter of 2003. Having started out as a noize band with no specific style/genre, the band has seen a fast progression from playing house parties to playing large shows with such acts as The Blood Brothers and AIDSWOLF. As well as The Smashing Pumpkins, Blonde Redhead, The Killers at 2007’s Virgin Festival in Toronto.
This past summer, a North American tour, exceeding 2 months, saw them venturing across the continent with Brooklyn’s Japanther. Also crossing paths with Matt & Kim, Dan Deacon & Mika Miko along the way. They finished off the year with an East Coast Canadian tour with Be Bad & Quebexico as well as various U.S. mini tours with the likes of Parts & Labor and Video Hippos.
The band has recorded two full length albums independently, both having steady rotation on Canadian college and community radio. The new album entitled “Are They Masks?” debuted on the weekly Canadian Campus & Community Radio Charts at number 5 and continues to be played steadily on XM radio.
They owe their success to a unique no-holds barred approach to making music, a noted warrior-like drive to tour extensively to places both near and far, as well as personal integrity. The band consists of 5 individuals: Matt and Tomas are known for bringing their visual art background to album artwork, T-shirt designs and limited edition zines, posters, buttons, etc. Mike is a studied sound engineer, Moshe is a talented drummer/performer from a background of great bands and Jordan is a musical pilot able to transpose music easily by ear or through theory.
LÓCELLE MARE (Fra)
Thomas Bonvalet, (born October, 1977) lives in the forest of «la Double», in the south-west of France. Guitar player of the band Cheval de frise between 1998 and 2004, he made is first solo show under the name of l’ocelle mare in September 2005. He toured USA, China, Israel, and europe.
“Thomas Bonvalet is half of Cheval de Frise, a frantic French math rock duo consisting of acoustic guitar and drums. For his solo work Bonvalet goes by the name of L’ocelle Mare. This brilliant LP finds his classical guitar in a series of deserted French locations. Bats, insects and birds contributes to the atmosphere, or the stony reverbrations of a ruined stable harshen the guitar sound. Bonvalet plays with dynamism, one might say virtuosity, but a few of these 16 brief untitled tracks simply luxuriate in the tiny sounds of his favourite outdoor spaces. The result is a remarkable balancing act between contemplative listening and explosive musical energy, all of it beautifully recorded. If these are improvisations, they are performed with a strong compositional sense. This, plus Bonvalet’s acrobatics, recall a very early Fred Frith. Bonvalet stamps his feet in a moment of almost-flamenco, then honks into a harmonica or holds a rattle while plunging into double-handed ecstasies of scraping, like a one man band in a hurry. He switches from one rhythm into another, or from harmonious to atonal with great sense of logical development nad timbral variety. Sometimes he has the earthy flamboyance of Marc Ribbot, though his roots sounds classical and Mediterranean. So the final track leaps from a web of string scrabblings into a kind of tarantella dance, then abruptly stops and we listen to the spider’s supper singing in the background.”
The Wire # 304
“French guitar improvisationist/dynamo Thomas Bonvalet is the sole noisemaker in L’Ocelle Mare. He hails from the John Fahey school of anti-songwriting, beating his instrument with complete focus and purpose and in a manner not resembling in the least how it was intended to be played. There are no verses, no choruses, no refrains, no repetition, just a flurry of fingers hitting frets and strings plucked with abandon. The careening atmospherics he creates shine brightly in the shadowy pall of silence that hangs over all of this album’s tracks — he even includes a couple short tracks of complete silence as a palate cleanser. With 16 tracks and just barely flirting with the half-hour mark, Bonvalet’s compositions are wholly fleeting. They exist in short bursts of emotion and confusion and quickly sink back into the natural darkness of the rural areas (farms, old churches, caves) in which they were recorded. Given its environment and immediacy, in a sense this is one of the purest of folk albums to surface in recent years. It won’t have the same cultural resonance as Bob Dylan or Woody Guthrie — and people needing a human face on their folk music will likely be completely turned off — but its nameless odes to the chaos of nature are equally as timeless.”

Konstnären Simons musik är helt akustisk, på ett ungefär… Han beskriver tillvägagångsättet på sin myspace: “Hello everybody, songs or pieces you can hear on this page are solo acoustic guitar. They are enteriliy acoustics with no add effects neither overdub. They are played on a folk guitare (metal strings) with a small motor (like the one you can find in electric objects to cook meal in the house). On the top of the motor is fixed a piece of plexiglas (sort of plastic) of the size of a coin. The motor makes the string vibrating like it could be done with a violin bow.”
