21:00 - 22:00 | The first headquarters of Luis Vasquez's solo project The Soft Moon was his own apartment. The debut from 2010 was a solitary operation and resulted in a dark, claustrophobic record. By now he has gathered musicians around him who join in on his post-apocalyptic soundscapes. The new album 'Zeros' will be out on 5 November on Captured Tracks.
20:00 - 20:45 | Live, it is all about the dance; at once a visceral and psychological encounter. Flickering visions are projected, keyboards buzz, drums pound, bodies sway and minds melt. As the expanded cinema projections that intensify their live shows suggest, the band is constantly pushing their sounds toward musical synesthesia. The vibrant evocations and tribal rumblings are so intoxicating that sensory registers are crossed: sonics becomes optics, music becomes vision, psychedelia becomes phantasmagoria. While the music draws from many sources, it is focused on exploratory visions of other worlds and states of being. So by all means open your mind, but watch where you step.
New EP 'Horizon Structures' will be released early november.
