Live: Alex's Hand + Les Tristes Cannibalistes - 23. May 2018

The Wrong Minibeast (Les Tristes Cannibalistes)
Eine Hommage an die Musik der 60er und 70er Jahre, als sich in den asiatischen, anatolischen und afrikanischen Ländern neben den traditionellen Instrumenten E-Gitarre, Drums und Synthesizer gesellten und ein ganz neuer Sound entstand, ohne das kulturelle Erbe dabei zu vergessen. Dieses Konzept greift das Duo um Sheraz Puri und Roman Dippong auf und erweitert es mit den modernen Möglichkeiten dieser Zeit. Samples mit nigerianischen Funk, türkischen Psychedelic und indischen Bollywood verschmelzen mit „postfuturistischen“ Sequenzer-Loops und repetetiven Drum-Grooves. Visuell ergänzt werden die Performances durch musik-gesteuerte Videoprojektionen.

Alex's Hand is polystylistic avant-prog-fusion rock group centered around the compositions of bassist Kellen Mills and drummer Nic Barnes. It was founded in Seattle, WA in 2011, initially as a duo. Nic came from a jazz background, playing with various jazz and philharmonic ensembles. While Kellen came from the opposite side of the spectrum: punk rock, and a self-taught approach to composition. This combination of styles has informed their approach to music and created a punk ethos of "anti" mixed with complex orchestral arrangement and jazz construction. Dabbling in everything from rock, metal, jazz, avant-grade, classical, progressive and experimental music, ALEX'S HAND are extremely sensitive to improvisation and have a vast ability to learn and develop. Each performance is different and is based entirely on the musicians chosen to interpret the material written for them.
In 2014, ALEX'S HAND left the United States and are currently based out of Berlin, Germany. Over the course of their career, the band shared stages with many known groups like Thinking Plague, miRthkon, Panzerballett, and Upsilon Acrux. Now in 2018, ALEX'S HAND are hard at work on their next album, planning another European tour, and set to play several iconic festivals including "Zappanale", "Burg Herzberg", and "Freakshow Artrock". The band's current live line-up features: Kellen Mills (bass), Nic Barnes (drums), Ruben Bergnes (guitar), Matt Kennon (tenor-saxophone, synth), and Jacopo Bazzarri (vibes).
