Skaņu Mežs festival – October 13

In 2017, Skaņu Mežs festival for adventurous music marks its 15th anniversary. It is considered to be the main experimental music festival in the Baltic states. The festival will take place at the music house “Daile” on October 13th and 14th with an opening free entry event on October 6 at the art museum Riga Bourse. This ticket ensures entrance to the concert evening of October 13.

After a lengthy break, noise music will return to the festival with a performance by Margaret Chardiet’s power electronics projects Pharmakon – Pharmakon’s second album „Bestial Burden” made it into the „best albums of 2014” lists by both Pitchfork and The Wire. This year, Chardiet returned with a new recording titled „Contact”, which, perhaps in contrast to its harsh sound, focuses on the search for humanity and empathy as a core theme.

Continuing the festival’s recently launched exploration of forward-thinking hip-hop, Skaņu Mežs welcomes Seattle-based duo Shabazz Palaces to its stage. The group is comprised of Ishmael Butler, known as a member of the Grammy award winning hip-hop trio Digable Planets, and producer/percussionist Tendai Maraire — son of the famous mbira player Dumisani Maraire. Their two recently released albums –„Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star” and „Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines” - have gathered positive feedback; Pitchfork, for instance, wrote the following: „Gangster Star and Jealous Machines are essential counter-programming against the indoctrination of the screen-based economy — and a refreshing example of art and expression wholly unconcerned with convention.” Before the two albums’ release, Rolling Stone magazine named them among the 24 most anticipated rap albums of 2017, adding that „Shabazz Palaces are responsible for some of the most strangely alluring hip-hop of the 2010s”.

James Dillon is a Scottish composer who is often regarded as belonging to the New Complexity school and is known for particularly expressive works. Honours include first prize in the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in 1978, the Kranichsteiner music prize at Darmstadt in 1982, and four Royal Philharmonic Society composition awards, the first of which he received for the work “Traumwerk”. After a short foreword by the composer, this very work will be performed at the festival by Duo Gelland.

A new work by Latvian composer Anna Ķirse will be premiered  - Ķirse’s „Artifex Auditionis” is a composition for nine players.

Improvised string music will be performed by the duo of guitarist and eudcator Joe Morris, hailed as "one of the most profound improvisors at work in the U.S.” by The Wire magazine, and cellist Daniel Levin, whose most recent record „Spinning Jenny” was called a „marvellous venture” by the same magazine.

The rhythmic music programme of this concert evening will consist of performances by US „footwork” innovator Jlin and Machine Woman, representing the SHAPE platform - a Russian-born, Berlin-residing experimental dance music producer, who, in the words of Crack magazine, is currently „well-placed to satirize the conventions of dance music”.

Jlin first came to wider public attention with her debut album on Planet Mu „Dark Energy”, which, avoiding genre conventions, placed her in her own musical zone of hyper rhythmic cuts that displayed a tension between anger and colourful euphoria. Embarking on a world tour soon after the album release she grew a reputation as a formidable live act, and the album ended up in the top 10’s and 20’s of album lists for 2015 for lots of music publications, including ranking #1 in The Wire magazine’s “Best releases of 2015”. In 2017 she followed up her debut with “Black Origami”, which already got an 8.8 rating and “Best New Music” title by Pitchfork.

The SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, co-founded by Skaņu Mežs, will also be represented by Latvian beatmaker Oriole, associated with the Dirty Deal Audio collective, who will play an audiovisual show in collaboration with video artist Linda Konone.

The concert evening will also include local industrial music project STROPS, renewed once more specifically for this one performance.

Skaņu Mežs festival is supported by the Ministry of Culture of Latvia, State Culture Capital Foundation, the Municipality of Riga, Trust for Mutual Understanding, Kulturkontakt Nord, Goethe-institut Lettland, as well as iRobot, Valmiermuiža and Red Bull Music Academy. Skaņu Mežs is also a member of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, supported by the „Creative Europe” program of the European Union, and I.C.A.S., an international network of festivals, devoted to adventurous sound.
