Event overview

Artist Talk: Stephen O‘ Malley, Kali Malone and Lucy Railton with curator Sarah Miles

Stephen O’Malley is a guitarist, producer, composer, and visual artist from Seattle, Washington, and one of the most influential drone avant-gardists of the last decades. He has conceptualised and participated in numerous drone-metal, death/doom, and experimental bands, including Sunn O))), Burning Witch, Khanate and KTL. He is also known for an extensive list of collaborators in both music and art, including Merzbow, and Keiji Haino, and theatre specialist Gisèle Vienne, sculptor Banks Violette, performance artist Nico Vascellari and filmmaker Alexis Destoop.

For Tune, he chose to present both solo and collaborative works. On the first evening he performs Les Sphères (effondrez-les), a piece that draws on his deeply informed sound practice developed by a fascination with dhrupad, long wire instrumentation, drone music, phenomenological spectralism, and sound bath/healing. O’Malley here presents a long form piece of microtonal, physical sound presented in more intimate spaces, with accompaniment from composer Kali Malone. Lucy Railton, whose works exist between modern instrumentalism, electroacoustic composition, improvisation and expressive musique concrète, presents a solo cello performance. Finally all three artists together perform a piece by Kali Malone, Does Spring Hide Its Joy, a study in deep listening and non-linear durational composition.

With a Stephen O’Malley or Kali Malone concert ticket, you have free admission to the Artist Talk. Without a concert ticket, a ticket for the Artist Talk is 5 € at the box office.
