FATES WARNiNG :: Through Different Eyes



We're walking within a shadow
Where echoes of different times resound
Looking for memories to relive
In yesterdays that can't be found
Through different eyes
We keep looking for what we lack
Changing minds
Take us away, and you can't go back
And staring into ageless eyes
That shared secrets too dark for light
We're searching for old bonds in places
That lie forever out of sight
Through different eyes
We keep looking for what we lack
Changing minds
Take us away, and you can't go back
To different times
Or ageless eyes, free from sorrow
Changing hearts
Will hide the past from tomorrow
Through different eyes we try to find
People and places we've left behind.

Music & lyrics by Jim Matheos

News on Cuneiform label



From Cuneiform press release:
It's Fall 2014, the 3rd season of Cuneiform's 30th year, and we're releasing, worldwide, 6 genre-crossing/defying new albums by artists on two continents. That has us thinking of travel, of crossing borders, transversing the globe. We think of trains, and boats and planes – large, powerful machinery built to cut through space and time – as means to transport us across vast areas in reasonable time. But the most powerful transportation vehicle is not mechanics – it's music. Music is the magic carpet that carries us through space and time in the blink of an eye. A single note or a phrase can transport our minds to a beloved location thousands of miles away, and instantly time-travel us into an envisioned future – or plunge us backwards, deep into our past. It is the vehicle of our dreams, the transport of our souls, the medium for our emotions, the breath on which our spirits sail. Music's transcendant power – it's ability to transport us to a different plane – is nowhere more apparent and powerful than on Return the Tides: Ascension Suite & the Holy Ghost. Recorded by Rob Mazurek & Black Cube SP in Brazil, following the tragic death of Mazurek's mother, the music was meant, says Mazurek, "to be a shamanistic journey where we sonically clear a path for my mother into the unknown to ensure her safe journey to the next." While aligned musically with avant-jazz, Return the Tides may perhaps best be described as a modern psychedelic spiritual. It is an astonishing work, resistant to being confined and musically, emotionally and spiritually transportive.

Two other new Cuneiform Fall 2014 releases were inspired by cherished memories of distant places and times past. DC's top guitarist, Anthony Pirog, named his new album, Palo Colorado Dream, in memory of a road that ran between Big Sur and his childhood California home. And Circa, the new album by LA-based Dylan Ryan / Sand, was conceived amidst moonlit music performances overlooking the Libyan Sea, and fleshed out on the road, on a tour spanning several continents. Stylistically-omnivorous, steeped liberally in both rock and jazz, these two guitar-centric, musically evocative discs transport listeners to musical worlds beyond the ordinary, and to blissful emotional climes. Cuneiform's new releases also include a 3rd guitar-centric album: Verse, by Baltimore guitarist/philosopher Jonathan Badger. While the cover art features aerial photos taken by Badger, including a plane in flight, the music transports us beyond mere time and place. Badger has rigged his guitar to trigger a symphony of samples when played - transporting us into an imaginary orchestra. And the otherworldly music that it plays manifests ideas from Badger's 2012 philosophy book, Sophocles and the Politics of Tragedy: Cities and Transcendence.



Circling back to planet earth, we have a new release called Ambit (a term defined as "limit, bounds or confines" or "circuit of circumference") by New Yorker's The Cellar and Point. Combining stylistic elements from alt-rock, modern classical music and jazz, and instrumentation from all three genres, the ensemble creates music that defies being confined in any singe genre. Described by the band as "garage-chamber" and by the New York Times as "ethereal chamber prog", their genre-transcendent music is a new, Jazz-infused, 21st century version of Chamber Rock, the classical/rock hybrid music that Cuneiform has championed for what is now three decades. Which brings us to Happy Family, the first Japanese band that Cuneiform signed. Shortly after founding Cuneiform in 1984, Steve Feigenbaum began distributing the label's releases worldwide, introducing our artists and their genre-defying music to new audiences in the Americas, Europe, Japan and beyond. By 1993 I had come on board to deepen and expand the international scope of Cuneiform's press and radio promotion. One of the first bands I worked with was Happy Family, who released two "Zeuhl"/Magma-influenced recordings on Cuneiform and were acclaimed as stars of the Rock-in-Opposition (R.I.O.) tradition, as manifested in Japan. Now, in 2014, they are back with a new Cuneiform release, called Minimal Gods, and a refreshingly bold and new alt-rock sound. Celebrating their new release and long-standing affiliation with R.I.O. ideals, Happy Family will perform in November 2014 at the first-ever Rock in Opposition Festival to be held in Japan. Besides Happy Family, four other Cuneiform bands (from Europe and Scandinavia) will perform at RiO-Japan, for more information, please see our blog. So yes, we've now traced the Ambit and come full-circle, travelling virtually around the globe, across genre boundaries and spiritual and philosophical planes with our bands. We hope that you've enjoyed the journey, and we invite you to more closely explore each of these 6 new discs. In closing, we'll quote Swedish band, Mats/Morgan to say: "Thanks for Flying with Us".

Colosseum znovu v Čechách a na Moravě



Britská jazzrocková skupina Colosseum byla založena v roce 1968 progresivními jazzmany, kteří odešli z Bluesbreakers Johna Mayalla po vydání alba Bare Wires. Byli to všestranný bubeník Jon Hiseman, saxofonista Dick Heckstall-Smith a baskytarista Tony Reeves. Doplněni varhaníkem, klavíristou a vibrafonistou Dave Greensladem (ex-Chris Farlowe's Thunderbirds) a kytaristou Jamesem Litherlandem utvořili první sestavu. Od počátku znamenala jejich přítomnost na britské hudební scéně zjevení v tom nejlepším slova smyslu. Propojovala nejen rock s blues, ale především s jazzem a místy i soulem. Po dvou ceněných albech v roce 1969 nahrazuje Litherlanda Dave 'Clem' Clempson V této sestavě skupina vystoupila  v rámci Mezinárodního jazzového festivalu Praha 1969 a způsobila tehdy rozdělení našich jazzmanů na dva tábory: těch kteří je striktně odmítli, a těch kteří byli nadšeni (zajiste mezi ně patřili členové budoucého "kuřecího" Flamenga). Záhy doplňuje sestavu ostřílený zpěvák mocného hlasu Chis Farlowe a na místo Reevese přichází Mark Clarke. V r. 1971 se Colosseum rozchází, jako testament po sobě zanechává vynikající živé dvojalbum Live!. Za svou krátkou existenci se stali jednou z nejzásadnějších kapel fůze rocku, jazzu a blues.
Jon Hiseman a Mark Clarke hned pote zalozili rockovejsi kapelu Tempest (v prvni verzzi hral kytarista Allan Holdsworth. V letech 1975-7 vedl Hiseman jazzrockove Colosseum II s jinymi hraci (m.j. kytarista Gary Moore), hral a hraje take s kapelou Paraphernalia sve zeny Barbary Thompson. Dave Greenslade mel v letech 1973-5 vynikajici kapelu Greenslade s druhym klavesistou a zpevakem Dave Lawsonem (a take prvnim basistou Colossea Tony Reevesem), Clempson hral napriklad s Humble Pie.
Reunion Colossea na sebe nechal čekat do roku 1994, kapela vydala nový koncetní záznam, a postupně také tři nová studiová alba (z nichž to nejnovější, Time On Our Side, má vyjít ještě letos), reedice původních desek i luxusní kompilace. U nás vystoupilo znovuvzkříšené Colosseum již několikrát, poprve v divadle Archa kratce po svem reunionu. Po úmrtí Dicka Heckstall-Smithe v prosinci 2oo4 s Colosseem stabilně vystupuje žena Jona Hisemana, saxofonistka a flétnistka Barbara Thompson.

Colosseum vystoupí 19. listopadu 2o14 v Lucerna Music Baru v Praze a ještě předtím, 16. listopadu na Rock StarNight5 v moravských Kunovicích.

Kronos Quartet will celebrate their 40th anniversary in Prague

 
KRONOS QUARTET PŘIPRAVILI PRO KONCERT, KDE OSLAVÍ 40.LET OD SVÉHO ZALOŽENÍ, SPECIÁLNÍ PROGRAM PŘÍMO PRO PRAHU.

Svoji dráhu začal Kronos Quartet jako vysoce inovativní komorní ansámbl, během své 40leté existence ale mantinely vážné hudby mnohokrát prolomil. K jeho spolupracovníkům patří jak elita současných skladatelů - Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt, Phillip Glass - tak i velikáni rockové sféry či jazzu - David Bowie, Björk, Paul McCartney. Zcela unikátní kapitolou jeho tvorby jsou průniky do kulturně vzdálených žánrů - indické či africké hudby, a také adaptace blues, řeckého stylu rembetiko či skandinávských balad. Kronos Quartet je držitelem řady prestižních cen včetně Grammy. Předkládat jejich výčet ale postrádá smysl, protože nejvyšším oceněním je pro řadu hudebníků spolupráce s Kronos Quartetem, nejvíce prestižním ansámblem na světové scéně. Kronos vydal 50 alb s nepředstavitelnou šíří žánrů - od baroka přes minimalismus až po avantgardu, od filmové hudby Bollywoodu přes sufijské zpěvy až po exotické nástroje jako nyckelharpa či kora. Před více než dvaceti lety na své první pražské návštěvě houslista David Harrington, vedoucí souboru, řekl: "Pokud by byl Jimi Hendrix naživu, skládal by nejspíš pro nás." Letos oslaví Kronos Quartet v Praze 40 let své existence. Koncert proběhne v jednom z našich akusticky i divácky nejpříjemnějších sálů - ve Dvořákově síni v Rudolfinu. David Harrington osobně sestavil program tak, aby ukázal i ty nejskrytější barvy hudebního spektra, které Kronos nabízí.

Program: Bryce Dessner / Aheym (Homeward) Nicole Lizée / Death to Kosmische Clint Mansell (arr. David Lang) / Requiem for a Dream Suite Aleksandra Vrebalov / …hold me, neighbor, in this storm… Margarita Lecuona (arr. Osvaldo Golijov) / Tabú (Taboo) Geeshie Wiley (arr. Jacob Garchik) / Last Kind Words Laurie Anderson (arr. Jacob Garchik) / Flow Mary Kouyoumdjian / Bombs of Beirut

Kronos zahrají v sestavě:
David Harrington, housle
John Sherba, housle
Hank Dutt, viola
Sunny Yang, violoncello

Collegium Musicum returns to play a concert at Palác Akropolis in Prague



Do Prahy se na podzim vrací legenda československého rocku COLLEGiUM MUSiCUM. Vůbec poprvé ve své pětačtyřicetileté historii zahraje 8. října 2o14 v žižkovském Paláci Akropolis. Collegium musicum vystoupí ve své staibilní sestavě, tedy geniální lídr Marián Varga (varhany), Fedor Frešo (baskytara), František Griglák (kytara) a Martin Valihora (bicí). Historie kapely sahá do konce šedesátých let, lze ji vedle Progress Organization nazvat první progrockovou kapelou v bývalém Československu a také jednou z nejvýznamnějších na území bývalého východního bloku. Novodobá historie Collegia musica se krom jednorázových reunionů počítá od roku 2oo9, kdy kapela vystoupila v Čechách poprvé po téměř 20 letech na prvním Beatfestu ve velkém sále Lucerny. Za zmínku stojí i skutečnost, že současný bubeník Martin Valihora (jediný, který nepamatuje původní éru Collegia) studoval hru na bicí ve Spojených státech a natočil několik alb jako člen kapely hvězdné jazzové pianistky Hiromi.

Red Baron Band will play 20th Anniversary concert in Prague Akropolis

Prague hard rock unit RED BARON BAND celebrates 20 years on stage with special concert at Prague Palác Akropolis on January 25th. Professional video recording of the concert is proposed to be released on DVD. Among various surprises there will be performing actual and almost all past members of the band, which celebrates 70's type hard rock music with distinctive prog elements on their numerous concerts and four albums released during their existence.



Pražská hardrocková formace s příchutí progresivního rocku 70. let RED BARON BAND oslaví 25 ledna 20 let své existence velkým koncertem v pražském Paláci Akropolis. Vedle zakladatelské a dodnes pohromadě držící dvojice Paul Kowacz (kytary, zpěv) a Radek Horník (bicí) prošla kapelou za její existenci celá řada bassistů, a několik zpěváků i hráčů na klávesové nástroje, s nimiž vznikla postupně alba The First Album (2000), In The Light (2003), Music Must Change (2006) a Reflections (2010). Výroční koncert bude zvukově i obrazově zaznamenán a měl by posléze vyjít v podobě DVD. Kromě současných a většiny bývalých členů RBB se na pódiu objeví také hosté - jazzový pianista Emil Viklický na Fender piano a moog, zpěvačka Zuzana Michnová, nebo vibrafonista Radek Krampl, kteří se v roli hostů zůčastnili natáčení alba In The Light. Přítomna bude i malá dechová sekce, která účinkovala na tomtéž albu i některých dřívějších koncertech kapely. Kromě skladeb známých z alb Red Baron Bandu zazní i některé písně, které se vydání na deskách nedočkaly, pódiová prezentace bude doplněna videoprojekcí s raritními záběry z historie kapely.
