Audrey Chen & Phil Minton duo

门票:50元
地点:一渡堂

缘起:
介绍材料上说:“陈皓伊和菲尔•明顿的二重奏始于2006年,随后逐渐发展为一个非常独特的团体。他们专注于纯然的嗓音和唇齿之声,探索着自身天然的,身体的‘乐器’。他们的即兴演奏是无所畏惧的,易碎的,饥渴的,激情的,放荡的,哀恸的,野兽般的:人所能发出的各种声音……今年,他们在比利时实验大厂Sub Rosa发表了首张专辑。”
其实他们已经不是陌生的名字了。陈皓伊曾经两次在中国巡演,参加过二皮音乐节和水陆观音。她是很多中国即兴乐手的好朋友。她的嗓音,像 Ami Yoshida 一样,有一种电子效果的绝技。她也是一位大提琴即兴高手,全力以赴,充满热量的那种。
年龄大她一倍的菲尔,是老一代自由即兴乐手中的顶尖高手。一位貌不惊人的老头,龇牙咧嘴,飞快地翻动着他的魔术师的嘴皮子,又忘我,又轻松,还带着一分幽默。

Audrey Chen & Phil Minton duo

Origin:
Quote from press kit: “The duo of Audrey Chen and Phil Minton began several years ago in 2006 and has been steadily developing since that time into a truly unique ensemble.
With primary focus on the interplay between the uttered sounds of the mouth and vocal chords, Minton and Chen plumb the depths of their most inherent and bodily instruments; their voices. Their improvisations are fearless, fragile, hungry, passionate, riotous, ululating and animalistic yet are, in all respects, human. They are, in collaboration, expressing, pronouncing and articulating (in their fashion) the many nuanced shades of their individual conditions.”
But these are not new names for us. As Audrey is good friend of many Chinese impro musicians. She has toured in China twice. Attended 2pi festival and Waterland Kwanyin. Her voice could be as sharp as from electronic device. Her cello playing is unique and warm. She is definitely a new star in the international improvised music scene.
Phil Minton is, no doubt, one of the masters in our time. He is a magician of lips and throat. As a  traveling musician without luggage he devoted his body to the stage for decades. How many musicians got influence from him by his countless performance, discs and workshops.
PHIL MINTON, born in Torquay, UK in 1940. Both his parents were singers. He learnt trumpet from age 15 and played and sang with local jazz groups, moving to London in 63 to play with Mike Westbrook. From the mid 60's he worked in dance bands in the UK, Canary Islands and Sweden. Rejoining Westbrook in 72 he was a regular member of his Brass Band until 84, playing trumpet and singing extensively in Europe, USA and beyond.

Through the last 30 years he's worked mainly as an improvising singer and sung with most of the worlds leading improvising musicians as well as been a guest singer for many composers music. He collaborated with pianist Veryan Weston on compositions such as "Songs from a Prison Diary" and is currently a member of improvising groups TooT, No Walls, 5 Men Singing, fORC, Adorno, Speeq and Axon. He also has a quartet with Veryan, John Butcher, and Roger Turner, and plays duos with these three musicians. New working duos are with singers and musicians, Isabelle Duthoit, Maggie Nicols, Audrey Chen, Terry Day, Hugh Metcalfe, Daunik Lazro and Sophie Agnel. He was a Nesta awardee in 2005 and in the last 15 years has traveled to many countries with his "Feral Choir" - a workshop and concert for all people who want to sing.

AUDREY CHEN is a Chinese-American musician who was born into a family of material scientists, doctors and engineers, outside of Chicago in 1976. Parting ways with the family convention, she turned to the cello at age 8 and voice at 11. After years of classical and conservatory training in both instruments, with a resulting specialization in early and new music, she parted ways again in 2003 to begin new negotiations with sound in order to discover a more individually honest aesthetic.
Now, using the cello, voice and analog electronics, Chen’s work delves deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling.  A large component of her music is improvised and her approach to this is extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and layering of a homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.
Chen has performed in Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada and the USA. She has recently relocated to Berlin, Germany from Baltimore, MD USA and continues to maintain an active international touring schedule.
This year, 2012, she will be touring solo and with her two current duo projects with Phil Minton and KAMAMA, with drummer, Luca Marini. Two album releases include a trio with Nate Wooley and C. Spencer Yeh on Monotype (Warsaw), and a duo record with Phil Minton on Subrosa (Brussels). New upcoming projects include work with violinist, Jon Rose, guitarist and composer, Jean-Yves Evrard, the German artist, John Bock and with the widely acclaimed Kronos Quartet.
