The concert programme of Hau2 theater in April begins with the reunion of a band which – without any exaggeration – merits to be called a supergroup.
In the Sixties guitarist KEITH ROWE was one of the members of AMM, pioneers of free improvised music in England.
More than a decade ago he got together with four protagonists of Austria’s and Oceania’s contemporary avant-garde, playing a classic of electro-acoustic sound art under the name of AFTERNOON TEA.
Rehberg, Ambarchi, Rowe, Fennesz, Pimmon | Afternoon Tea
His collaborators were PETER REHBERG, among others founder of the Vienna electronic label Mego and CHRISTIAN FENNESZ, one of the internationally most successful pioneers of electro-acoustic music.
Two others were the no less famous laptop-specialist PIMMON, something of an Australian counterpart to Christian Fennesz as well as guitarist and percussionist OREN AMBARCHI.
Ambarchi’s virtuosity ways amply displayed several months ago when he performed in a trio with Keiji Haino and Stephen O’Malley at HAU.
After having done a recording in 2000 the musicians went separate ways. Now they once again get back together – on 05 April at HAU 2.
