THE FLUID FORM CLUB has been created to gather people interested in unusual music and its interaction with new art forms. Music that escapes classification, often full of quick changes and by its nature passionately unpredictable. We’re bringing together a community of curious minds.
Seb Rochford is best known as leader of the post-jazz formation Polar Bear and co-founder of punk jazzers Acoustic Ladyland, as well as a founding member of Sons of Kemet and session drummer for everyone from Pete Doherty to Adele, to Brian Eno. His latest project, Pulled By Magnets, however, sounds nothing like any of the above. It’s sludge rock disguised as ambient music; A grindcore album recorded in a cavernous church and layered with subtle spiritual tropes, to the point that it sounds like a piece of sacred minimalism.
Defiantly original duo Witch ‘n’ Monk combine Mauricio Velasierra’s radically electrified Latin American flutes, with Heidi Heidelberg’s jazz-punk guitar/bass and anarchic soprano vocals. Their latest album was released on John Zorn’s legendary Tzadik Records in 2020 to critical acclaim. It was named Contemporary Album of the Month by The Guardian and received the prestigious Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik.
