Kongrosian and Simon Houghton at arkaoda / Thursday, 28.11.2019
MIRROR WORLDS is a night of Raw and Unheard Music with Oltrarno Recordings and Aut Records join their forces to celebrate two record releases. Besides the live record release concerts by Kongrosian and Simon Houghton theres DJ sets from early til late by Cloud of Illusions and Daniele Papini. So another class night at Arkaoda.
Kongrosian is a wind trio open for collaborations with every musician interested in developing innovative strategy of improvisation. Kongrosian present “Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously”, with Alberto Collodel on bass clarinet, Davide Lorenzon on tenor saxopone andIvan Pilat on baritone saxophone.
Simon Houghton aka Sneaky is a Manchester born and bred cellist, bass player, arranger, composer and DJ operating out of Berlin. You might know him through the extensive catalog of his trio Fingathing (bass, turntables & visuals). Arguably, the project could have been the inspiration for the Gorillaz in regards to combining cartoon characters with music. Sneaky also played strings on a slew of songs from artist Robot Koch, appeared live in different configurations with members of the Cinematic Orchestra, Simian Mobile Disco and Mark Rae.
Mr. Scruff’s certified hit Get A Move On (featured in countless commercials) also happens to be set to his signature-style bass line. Right now Sneaky will drop his third solo record, this time venturing out into what he calls lo-fi neoclassical / mylife soundtrack territory. Moondog and Arthur Russell fans will not be disappointed. And who knows, maybe the final destination for this man is writing to images flickering across a silver screen?
