Hypnodrone Ensemble (Wolves And Vibrancy Records)
Hypnodrone Ensemble was formed in Berlin in 2014 by the Canadian experimental/ambient guitars Aidan Baker (also of Nadja) and Eric Quach (aka thisquietarmy), along with the drummers David Dunnett, Jérémie Mortier, and Felipe Salazar (also of Caudal). A quintet at its core, though occasionally expanding or changing members, the group creates free-form, semi-improvisational studies in rhythmic, psychedelic, atmospheric spacerock. For this performance, their first in Hamburg, the group will be joined by Felix-Florian Tödtloff (Swoosh/Sferics) on bass and Fiona McKenzie (of Halma) on drums...and possible others...tbd...

Four-headed monster,
the big bad Ni has left the linear roads of France
in order to live in a complex world paced
by electrical sounds and varying polyrhythms.

In its temple, shouts of the quartet make the windows crack,
a stunning nervousness makes the walls stand and, finally,
the strong foundations remove from ages to come all doubts
regarding the durability of all these things.

Inside, it is always like a squall:
children run in all directions and parents dance around the bonfire.
The waltz, the 4/4 time signature and verse and chorus structures
take one last breath before being burned to ashes at the core of this fire.

We could make it simple and say that Ni is an instrumental rock band. We would stop there and we would stock up a good coffee, look at the cover of their last album saying that it feels good to enjoy the balcony, that spring returns, and that we would listen to the birds sing all the afternoon, that it was a long time.

To complicate things a little, it looks like Ni is a four-headed monster. A big bad Ni, who would have traded the linearity of the roads of the Ain in which he comes against impossible architectures, which hold with great reinforcement of electricity and polyrhythms stateless. In his temple, the quartet pierces the windows with shouts, though the high walls hold thanks to virtuoso nervousness and the quality of the foundations dispels any doubt as to the potential resistance of the bazaar for centuries to come. Inside, the gust continues, children run around and their parents dance around a big bonfire in the middle of which the waltz, the verse-chorus form and the 4/4 measures release a last rattle. before being reduced to ashes.
