Cabaret Rock Live: The Dark Blue Orchestra (F) - 30. April 2018

Der Sohn eines Musik Genies und einer Balletttänzerin, vertauscht zum Zeitpunkt der Geburt mit dem Sohn eines Mafia Bosses, Don DiMartino, formte “The Dark Blue Orchestra” mit einem eher ambitioniertem Ziel im Sinn: Musik zum Zweck der kriminellen Rehabilitation.

Zusammengestellt aus Musikern, die die gleichen humanitären Ziele teilen, bewegt sich “The Dark Blue Orchestra” schon seit 2011 mit großer Resonanz in den Kreisen des Untergrund Kabaretts. Dies ist ihre extraordinäre Geschichte, die sie eine Stunde lang mit ihrer Show, durchnetzt von klassischen Intermezzi und Videokunst, kompromisslos und stark auf der Bühne erzählen.

“The Birth of The Dark Blue Orchestra” ist der erste Teil eines epischen Triptychons über die schwierige Jugend Donnie DiMartinos, hyper-sensibler Sohn eines Mafia Bosses. Die Show ist ein cinematisches Kabarett Rock Spektakel, welches das Publikum mit in das Universum des gequälten jungen Mannes, seiner Kindheit, der Suche nach Liebe und die Genesis des “The Dark Blue Orchestra” entführt… Ein musikalisches Kostüm entworfen, um die Kriminellen durch handgeschneiderte Requiems zu rehabilitieren.

Don DiMartino – Lead Vocals
Nicolas La Ferrerie – Electric Guitar, backing Vocals
Raphael Bancou – Keyboards, backing Vocals
Jeremy Lainé – Drums, backing Vocals

Live : The Academy of Sun (Nick Hudson) :: Night Tongue (Carisa Bianca Mellado) - 27. April 2018

The Academy of Sun has juggernauted through various incarnations since 2009, beginning as the compositional laboratory of Nick Hudson-plst-accompanying-accomplices, and fluctuating in number from between two and fifteen players. Since 2014 its membership has crystalised into a seven-piece, evolving into a democratic unit, sinuously augmenting NH's compositions in the form of a queer, gnostic, post-punk orchestral militia.
TAOS has just completed its new record Codex Novena, and is working towards its release later this year.

Carisa Bianca Mellado is the singer, performer and composer of her own brand of dark, dream pop music. The descendent of legendary opera singers Antonio Tambourini and Giulia Tambourini, she began her passion for singing at the age of 3. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, now based in Los Angeles, California, Carisa Bianca Mellado began singing and performing at a very early age and began composing songs at the age of 12.
Carisa's music marries diverse influences, from Cocteau Twins and Nico to Nina Simone and Cyndi Lauper. It is at once catchy and challenging, presenting a unique atmosphere that is instantly definable: a dark, dreamy, shoegaze, goth pop sound that seamlessly transcends into sultry swaying death jazz.
Carisa Bianca Mellado is an occult expert and her music and composition is complemented by conceptualized mythologies, occult symbolism as well as video and art that often incorporates these dark, mythical themes. These influences combine to bring glittering pink intergalactic explosions together with a deep, dark, velvety dream and the mysterious underworld and otherworldly realms where heroes’ journeys are taken.

Einlass: 20:00 :: Konzertbeginn 21:00 :: VVK: 10€ (+ Gebühr) | AK: 12€

LA based transgressive post-punk duo Night Tongue from Australia, Carisa Bianca Mellado + Andrew Dalziell create a dark mythic world of sex death horror + ecstasy

Night Tongue is a transgressive post-punk duo from Los Angeles. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, the duo create a dark mythic world of sex, death, horror and ecstasy constructed from modal vocal virtuosity, bright shimmering guitars, filthy bass, drum machine, synth and cello. Carisa Bianca Mellado and Andrew Dalziell (of Concrete Veil) combine their energies to create a music of violence, prayer and transcendence.
Carisa Bianca Mellado is a singer, performer and composer of her own brand of synth heavy dark dream pop, gothic shoegaze, black opera music. The descendent of legendary opera singers Antonio Tambourini and Giulia Tambourini, she began her passion for singing at the age of 3.
Originally from Melbourne, Australia, now based in Los Angeles, California, Carisa Bianca Mellado began singing and performing at a very early age and began composing songs at the age of 12. She got her start singing and playing bass in a variety of punk, post-punk and dark music projects, most notably The Time of the Assassins who released the sprawling darkness of the Steve Albini-recorded Awake in Slumberland prior to disbanding in 2008.
Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Carisa collaborated with a variety of artists. Carisa performs regularly, in live collaborations with Mira Billotte (White Magic), Nora Keyes (Rococo Jet, Fancy Space People, The Centimeters) and Gregg Foreman (Cat Power). She performed in White Magic’s infamous Cinefamily live score to Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages, put together by The Source Family documentary director, Jodie Wilie. She also performed in Rococo Jet’s moving live score to Cinefamily’s screening of the silent film classic, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. Carisa also appears as a guest vocalist on two songs off Nick Hudson’s Academy of Sun’s critically acclaimed record Ganymede in a State of War, released in July 2016. Since moving, Carisa has performed shows on the same line up as other Los Angeles favorites, including Gitane Demone and Rikk Agnew (Christian Death), Geneva Jacuzzi, Diva Dompe, Paul Roessler (The Screamers), Puro Instinct, Ariel Pink and San Diego’s cholo-goth pioneers, Prayers amongst others. Carisa’s band consists of Seth Styles on guitar, Elle Haert on synth and vocals, Kimbo Calico on drums and Andrew Dalziell on cello.
In 2013 Carisa brought her apocalyptic experimental concept album The New Queen to the stage. Written, recorded, and produced in its entirety by Carisa, The New Queen is a dark opera that explores themes of madness, desire, delusion and the search for meaning. Carisa created classical pieces heavily influenced by the stark, dissonant and often vocal based, pre-renaissance songwriting styles of the dark ages, to create lofty terrifying monuments of experimentalism and maddening dirges pulled back from the brink of death by vocals blending tenderness, passion, hysteria and pain.The New Queen was officially released in Sept 2013 and after this Carisa set out to begin work on her next album Kore, which was released in June of 2015.
Kore follows the story of a Sirian Dolphin Princess who goes through the underworld journey of being born on Earth as a human girl. The album title, which means ‘girl’ or ‘maiden’ is also another name for the Greek Goddess Persephone and the album explores themes of birth, sex, death, desire, intoxication, the shadow self, love, rebirth and surrender through the mythic stories of Persephone, Inanna, Psyche and the cosmic creation myth of Eros.
Set to music that marries diverse influences, such as Cocteau Twins and Cyndi Lauper, Kore is at once catchy and challenging, presenting an atmosphere unique to the record yet instantly definable: a dreamy shoegaze pink goth pop space opera that seamlessly transcends into sultry swaying death jazz.
Carisa Bianca Mellado is an occult expert and her music and composition is complemented by conceptualized mythologies, occult symbolism as well as video and art that often incorporates these dark, mythical themes. Carisa has a paralyzing phobia of orcas, whales and dolphins, that features heavily through her work. She believes herself to be an incarnated orca guardian from Sirius B. From the age of 18, Carisa worked full time doing out-of-body channeling, tarot, astrology, palmistry, jungian psychology, mediumship and readings. As well as this, she is a Reiki Master and taught classes and workshops on the occult, tarot, mythology, psychic development, spiritual health, meditation and Reiki for many years. She wrote and released two oracle card sets through Blue Angel Publishing and Simon and Schuster, before limiting her work to the musical sphere. She draws on these themes through her videos, art and music. These influences combine to bring glittering pink intergalactic explosions together with a deep, dark, velvety dream and the mysterious underworld and otherworldly realms where heroes’ journeys are taken.

The New Queen: 2007-2013
Written, recorded, and produced in its entirety by Carisa, The New Queen explores themes of madness, desire, delusion and the search for meaning. Carisa created classical pieces heavily influenced by the stark, dissonant and often vocal based, pre-renaissance songwriting styles of the dark ages, to create lofty terrifying monuments of experimentalism and maddening dirges pulled back from the brink of death by vocals blending tenderness, passion, hysteria and pain.
There are hints of the chamber music of Nico, the phantasmic classical compositions of Diamanda Galas, and the harsh experimentalism of Scott Walker’s most recent albums in Carisa’s work, but the unique scope of this project renders even influences as fleeting ghosts. The New Queen project presents a video that accompanies each piece on the album, creating a series of landscapes and portraits that will serve to further accentuate the concepts of the tale.

Queer gnostic post-punk band The Academy Of Sun from the UK, led by composer Nick Hudson

Nick Hudson (b. 1981) has been creatively active in various media for many years. Based in Brighton since 2003, he has already produced a vast wealth of music, eclectic in scope and form.
Through his earlier, lo-fi solo works of elegiac, twisted folk, through to the richly-crafted modern composition of his more recent output, and via collaborations with Asva, Hexenverfolgung, Ekca Liena, members of Kayo Dot, and David Tibet (Current 93), Nick's music remains singularly dynamic.
Nick has performed in various guises/venues throughout the UK, in churches, galleries, dungeons, boats, at the base of a mountain in Scotland, and at a literary conference in Ireland, garnering a cult acclaim for his commandingly intense performances.
In addition to performing solo, he performs with The Academy of Sun a hydra-headed entity of rotating membership, weaving densely-textured arrangements into truly epic music, encompassing progressive rock, modern composition, jazz, folk and outright psychedelia, as befitting an ensemble whose members are drawn from disparate worlds of classical, noise, doom and rock. The Academy Of Sun has performed with Shara Nelson (Massive Attack), Matthew Seligman (Bowie, Morrissey) and Kayo Dot, amongst others.
He has also collaborated closely as a score composer with director Michael Salerno on various films including 'Godland' (2010) and 'Dans Le Silence' (2013).
His collages, photography, totemic sculptures and assemblages grace the covers of many of his album sleeves and related media. His prose and poetry has been published in various international anthologies.
Recent works 'TERRitORies of disSENT' (2009), 'My Antique Son' (2011) and 'A Day Without Comfort' (2011) and 'Letters To The Dead' (2013) and 'Ganymede In A State Of War' (2015) collectively known as 'The Phoenix Archaeologies'.

Nick is a prolific and far-reaching composer-performer whose work, whether solo, band-based or for film is captivating, unique and impactful.'
