THE FLUID FORM CLUB presents passionately unpredictable music that escapes classification, in a space that brings together a community of curious minds. This series is hosted by Witch ‘n’ Monk who will perform at Fluid Form Club #4 with the celebrated genius of the Japanese underground, Tatsuya Yoshida and the Berlin-based Japanese guitarist Kazuhisa Uchihashi together with real-time otherworldly video animation by Gomito.
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. The music travels seamlesly from structured arrangements to wild improvisations, using a myriad of control pedals and labyrinthine signal paths to orchestrate live. The essence of their collaboration is encapsulated in the name; dark/light, feminine/masculine, punk/Romantic. Creating contrast is fundamental to their work and thus they tread upon the edges of genres.
A widely celebrated genius of the Japanese underground Tatsuya Yoshida is at the centre of a number of projects that overflow with cascades of sounds and indomitable drums. There are often touches of electronic explorations with explosive melodies that are both compelling and ingenious. A true hero of the creative music scene Tatsuya Yoshida performs with his duo ‘Cho-Sokkyo’: a collaboration with Berlin-based Japanese guitarist Kazuhisa Uchihashi.
Tatsuya Yoshida is the only consistent member of the renowned progressive rock duo Ruins, as well as of Koenji Hyakkei. He is also a member of the progressive rock trios Korekyojinn and Daimonji. He has been cited as “[the] indisputable master drummer of the Japanese underground”.
Gomito is the pseudonym of Mario Campos Castellano, an interdisciplinary artist from the Canary Islands. Gomito has been working as a painter, musician and visual artist in Berlin since 2004. His visuals are a combination of reinvented Dadaist surrealism with an eerie emotional depth and wry humor. His most relevant side projects are Nemesis Air, an airbrush painting and sculpting collaboration with Lina Nilsson, and Pizza Suicide TV, a series of art TV shows.
