Spinifex shared Can This Even Be Called Music?'s photo.

A nice review of Spinifex 'Veiled' by 'Can this even be called music?'!
"The experimental jazz quintet from the Netherlands is abrasive and seductive, and they have an outstandingly good ten-track album!"

My votes for the Jazz Journal 2016 Critics' Poll (choosing from discs reviewed in JJ last year).
As usual, I'm out of step. Not one made the final list, and only three were picked by other reviewers. Still, the attempt was made. One day...

The Spinifex tour is nearing its end (tomorrow at la Malterie in Lille/FR). Our van from multibus.nl still running smoothly! Yesterday we had an incredible evening at the Freakshow Artrock festival in Würzburg. Here are some photos of the first 4 days of the tour, the marvelous Free Flow Fest in Puglia, Italy. The second gig was in one of the many caves in Matera, the photo shows us with our dear friend and host, organizer of the Free Flow --- and great trombonist! --- Carlo Mascolo, who also introduced us to caffè nudo...

Convegno conclusivo sulla rassegna MUSIC CULT
interverranno:

- Michele Perriello (Amministrazione comunale di Ferrandina);
- Raffaele Pecora (Ass. cult. Pensiero Attivo e curatore del progetto);

- Tobias Klein (Spinifex) e John Dikeman.

21:30: SPINIFEX LIVE
Si tratta di un quintetto formato da un’esplosiva combinazione di musicisti, un mix di ritmi trascinanti, dinamiche forti e improvvisazione. Spinifex, che è il nome di una specie di pianta australiana molto tenace, può sembrare una combinazione di improvvisazione libera, punk-rock e musica contemporanea tipicamente occidentale, tuttavia, al di sotto della superficie, l’ascoltatore scopre antichi ritmi ciclici turchi e indiani.
Il batterista e astrofisico Philipp Moser è noto per il suo lavoro con il gruppo di progressive metal Cilice.
Il chitarrista Jasper Stadhouders si afferma sulla scena della musica underground di Amsterdam, come membro dei Cactus Truck.
Il bassista portoghese Gonçalo Almeida (Lama, Albatre) si destreggia senza sforzo tra un suono ben tornito e una distorsione elettrica pesante.
Il sassofonista John Dikeman (sax alto) ha incantato il pubblico esibendosi con il trio William Parker e Hamid Drake, così come con gli Universal Indians/Joe McPhee e i Cactus Truck.
Il sassofonista Tobias Klein (sax tenore), anima del gruppo, si è imposto come musicista di clarinetto basso e compositore.
Nel dicembre 2015, gli Spinifex hanno pubblicato il loro quarto disco, intitolato Veiled, che ha ricevuto critiche entusiaste. Il gruppo ha suonato diffusamente in India, Portogallo, Russia, Paesi Baltici, Germania, Polonia, Ungheria, Slovacchia, Slovenia e finalmente anche in Italia al Free Flow Fest 2016

Tutti sono invitati a partecipare!

JazzaJ Xtra // Spinifex

Szeptemberrel beindul minden, a JazzaJ évad is hamarosan elkezdődik. Éljen! De addig sem maradtok koncert nélkül, most az amszterdami Spinifex jön Budapestre. A kíméletlen, szeletelős témákra játszó free jazz csapat ismerős már itthon, jártak már a Mediawave-en, John és Jasper pedig a méltán híres Cactus Truckban is zenél.

Ezt a szépet pedig a Jazz Journal UK írta róluk:
“Nagyra törnek de nem nagyravágyóak, feszes és fülbemászó zenét játszanak, de bátran keresgélnek és kísérleteznek.” (Dave Foxall)

Jesi free? - novi Močvarin program impro glazbe -

UTORAK 20.09. • VRATA 20:00 • POČETAK 21:00 • UPAD 25 KN

JESI FREE? - novi Močvarin program impro glazbe -

Nizozemska, obećana zemlja mnogih generacija naših subkultura, osim multižanrovskog glazbenog izričaja, domovina je bendova poput The Ex, Plan Krutntoone, De Kift i tolikih drugih noise-ozemaca koji su kalili naše uši i liječili nam rane na duši, dobru je dekadu služila kao zavjetrina Draganu Pajiću-Paji i njegovim kolegama. Pajo je konkretno dao i svoj dizajnerski obol prostorima koncertnih pozornica OCII i Entrepot Dok na kojima se kalila današnja generacija glazbenika iz Amsterdama... i velika je sreća da te i takve možemo dovesti na Jesi Free? - novi program u Močvari koji otvara vrata slobodnoj improviziranoj glazbi.

http://www.spinifexmusic.nl

Članovi kvinteta Spinifex osnovanog prije deset godina u Amsterdamu, u sklopu svoje jesenske turneje Srednjom i Jugoistočnom Europom posjetit će i Močvaru, a u goste su pozvali i američkog tenor-saksofonista Johna Dikemana. Mali, a prošireni klupski sastav s dvije električne gitare koji po potrebi uvodi shematske role big banda i ansambla, predstavlja se jedinstvenom žanrovskom inačicom koju zovu – Bollycore. Osnivači grupe su Tobias Klein (alto saksofon, klarinet) i Gijs Levelt (truba), a uz njih su tu i Jasper Stadhouders (gitara), Gonçalo Almeida (kontrabas) i Philipp Moser (bubnjevi). Izvode smjesu jazzcorea i math-metala, garniranu NoWaveom, kao i turskim i karnatičkim cikličnim flowom i nepravilnim mjerama.

Prošle su godine predstavili i svoje proširenje Spinifex Maximus u kojem svira 12 glazbenika, među kojima i poljski trubač Piotr Damasiewicz, američki trombonist Jeb Bishop, kao i mladi nizozemski bubnjar Onno Govaert. U malom sastavu često ugošćuju i razne predstavnike indijske karnatičke glazbe. S dva posljednja albuma, "Hispters Gone Ballistic" i "Veiled" dobivaju uglavnom oduševljene kritike, a čak i u konkurenciji s rukopisom Naked City, kritika se uglavnom slaže kako njihova furiozna kolažnost ipak ima vlastiti identitet.

Članovi benda, među najtraženijim su glazbenicima na međunarodnoj sceni, tako je gitarist Jasper Stadhouders član i Made to Break i Ingebrigt Håker Flaten Chicago Sextet. A što se pak njihove izrazite uigranosti i "stajtanosti" tiče, vrijedi spomenuti da dotično mogu zahvaliti i ljetnoj turneji u sklopu projekta Muzenegro od prošle godine, kad su održali prvo pet koncerata po moskovskoj regiji, a zatim i dvadesetak koncerata na putu od Irkutska do Vladivostoka.

BRUNO FRANZ KAFKA TRIO (Zagreb)

Trojka Bruno Vidović Vorberger (bubnjevi), Damir Kafka Capri (synth, tenor sax) i Franjo Glušac Franz (el. git.), nekadašnji članovi grupa Haustor i Peach Pit posljednjih godina surađuju u bendu Franz Kafka Ensemble, kao i Cul-de-Sac, a formativno su sazrijevali na liniji Zagreb-Amsterdam, doduše, u različitim vremenskim razdobljima. Ima li boljeg gosta na večeri koju će obilježiti gostovanje grupe Spinifex?

Atención amig@s!!!

É para nós un gran pracer anunciar a visita de Spinifex, unha das bandas máis notables e explosivas do panorama jazzístico holandés máis avanzado. Aínda que considerar a Spinifex como meramente un proxecto jazz é quedarse ben curto, xa que a súa proposta libertaria, complexa e bastarda bebe tanto do jazz coma do punk, o math, o metal, a improvisación, o free , os ritmos da India, Turquía ou os balcáns.

Spinifex explora o contraste entre unhas estructuras irregulares moi axustadas e extensas improvisacións libres.
Coa súa temible combinación de músicos, a música de Spinifex combina infecciosos grooves, dinámicas fortes e improvisacións desafiantes.

Con máis de dez anos de percorrido, as súas colaboracións con músicos indios no seu proxecto Bollycore, ou a súa orchestra Spinifex Maximus dan boa conta da audacia e traxectoria deste intrépido grupo.

A review of the Spinifex Maximus cd by Ken Waxman in Jazzword! "Janus-like however, “Ost” is the very model of imaginative arranging with the narrative sloping from elevated to low tones like water seeping down naturally formed rock shelving. Teetering timbres from all concerns are directed into chromatic lines as if section leaders are sheep dogs with a recalcitrant flock, finally herding all textures into an aggressively low-key finale."
