Not Waving & Dark Mark

CLOSER MUSIC - Sunday, February 2nd

Not Waving & Dark Mark + Alessandro Cortini + Jean-Luc + Anadol
Not Waving & Dark Mark
On paper, nothing predestined Mark Lanegan, a cult figure on the American rock scene and one of the most beautiful grunge voices, to meet Not Waving, a project by Italian techno producer Alessio Natalizia. And yet listening to "drownwelling", the duo's first album, the collaboration seems extremely natural. Lanegan's deep and inhabited voice wanders in dark climates with Natalizia's refined electronic arrangements, leaving aside her club intentions to explore ambient music with industrial hints. After a concert event at the Atonal Festival in Berlin, Dark Mark & Not Waving will offer Closer Music the French premiere of this exciting and cross-cutting new project.

Alessandro Cortini
Known to the general public for having been Nine Inch Nails' keyboard, Alessandro Cortini is a soloist developing one of the most exciting works in contemporary electronic music. Now signed on the cult label Mute, the Italian has reached new heights with his latest album, the well-named "Massimo Volume", released last September, which gives the audience a powerful and cinematographic synth wave and stands out with class and personality from the current 80's revival.

Formed spontaneously in an unbridled energy typical of Berlin's cosmopolitan underground, Jean-Luc is a quartet that produces hybrid music. Between poetry, theatrical new wave and dada rock art, the band's compositions remind us of John Maus, Lizzy Mercier Descloux or Klaus Nomi. Live, Jean-Luc transforms the clubs that welcome him into punk, childish and mocking cabaret.

Behind Anadol is the Turkish sound artist Gözen Atila, now based in Berlin. Initially, Anadol was a collective project of improvisations on the traditional Middle Eastern repertoire that has evolved over time. Uzun Havalar, released last spring, is a strange album made up of cinematographic and funny collages that evolve between pop art and vintage electronic music (we'll think of the work of the forgotten pioneer Bruce Haack or Mort Garson). A psychedelic music from which arise contemplative moments of beauty as ephemeral as hypnotising.
