CONCERT OREN AMBARCHI + HELM
The Luminaire
Monday 14 July [8pm]
311 High Rd., NW6 T:020.7372.8668 Tube: Kilburn
£7 (advance) £8 (door)

Sydney resident Oren Ambarchi treats his guitar work with an otherworldly alchemy. Straddling music worlds of tonal micro-glitch, black metal drone and outright pop, his captivating minimalism is a sun-drenched treat. Ambarchi’s tonal guitar work is filtered through various effects pedals to recreate Mego-like (but more listener-friendly) improvised explorations, akin to many of the best laptop artists (and his collaborators) Christian Fennesz, Tim Hecker and Pimmon. His joint work includes live sets and recordings with Martin Ng, Sunn 0)))’s Stephen O’Malley, Otomo Yoshihide, Keiji Haino, John Zorn, Keith Rowe, Phill Niblock, Gunter Muller, Evan Parker, Toshimaru Nakamura, Dave Grohl, and Damo Suzuki. Ambarchi is also a band member of the unfocussed post-pop group Sun, as well as Burial Chamber Trio, and Gravetemple. Labels releasing his material are Touch, Southern Lord, room40 and Staubgold; notable solo albums include Suspension, Triste, and Grapes From The Estate. How’s that for a CV?

NB: support comes from Helm, whose main-man Luke Younger provides sonic billows and industrial-esque surges.
