A longer video we had found online of Stavros Gasparatos and his musicians performing his "Seven" album (adn170) live in Piraeus has sadly been taken offline. However, this musician has himself uploaded a shorter but higher-quality video out-take of the "Seven" live-premiere, performed at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens in December 2013.
Above is a nice new video interview with Stavros Gasparatos, shot for the Love Greece website (which has an article about this composer here), in which he talks about his beginnings, his "Seven" album for Ad Noiseam, and his ambitious coming project for EMPAC.
You are on the internet right now, though, and Monolog is now only a click away, with no less than two different sets made available today, recorded in two very distinct context.
The first is last week's episode of Future Music's Stalker Radio show (run by Swarm Intelligence and Rory St John), which features a full Monolog set in its second half and can be listened to here or below.
Monolog's second set today is a full recording of his show in Paris last week. It's hard, cold, and something particular for this music, recorded genuinely live. You can hear the audience, the claps, the excitement, and get an overall feeling of this show's vibe. The photo above, by Ehoarn Bidault, was taken at this gig.
Click happy, enjoy, check "2 Dots Left", and see you at Monolog's shows if you are in Leipzig or Berlin these days.
This new live set-up brings Laure Le Prunenec and Laurent Lunoir out of the studio to stage, enabling them to perform live the vocals they had recorded for Igorrr's music. And as you can see below, it is quite something.
Bookers: Igorrr is available for gigs both in this new set-up and solo. Get in touch to bring him to your neck of the woods.
Following "The Land Of Grey", the very well-received first excerpt from Underhill's forthcoming second album ("Prologue", adn179), here comes a second full track which should give an even closer look and more accurate impression of the new full length album by this collective formed by Dean Rodell, Tim Elliot (Current Value), Ivan Shopov (Balkansky / Cooh), Martina Astner and MC Coppa.
Following the recent Mantis show dedicated to Mobthrow, it is the turn of another show on Future Music to focus on an Ad Noiseam artist. While Monolog will be in Paris tomorrow evening, embarking on the first date of a series of four 13 Years Ad Noiseam celebrations, he will also be in your (internet) radio, invited by Swarm Intelligence and Rory St John in their Stalker Radio show.
