18 May in Tarbes...AND


Tomorrow night I shall make scraping racket in Tarbes.

Shall be joined by the incredible d'En Haut 

will then be hauled about Bearn by the fantastic PAGANS/Hart Brut crew to hear new sounds, in particular their radical blend of Gasconne folk with experimentation and general heaviness - and as explained below delving back to the psychedelic folk sounds that inspired them -, including lurking about the Musikaren Eguna festival in Ordiarp, Pays Basque with Artus and then finally recording with them for their Laboratori series...

Here's what Thomas Baudoin and the gang had to say about it in French:

Hey ! Adam Cadell, ( vient à notre rencontre durant 5 jours. Échanges et collaborations au programme ! L'explorateur des pratiques de violons dissidents sera notamment en plateau commun avec D'en Haut au CeltiCPuB IsNoTaPuB ce vendredi 18 mai. On passera ensuite un petit moment ensemble au festival Müsikaren Egüna ou nous jouerons avec Artús(le 20 mai à 15h). Et aussi une session d'improvisation enregistrée à La Ferronnerie avec l'idée de vous la partager sur le bandcamp de Pagansprochainement. Il viendra aussi rencontrer Jacques Baudoin, violoneux et ancien membre du groupe Canicula, dont nous rééditons en numérique les vinyles sortis entre 1978 et 1986, toujours sur PAGANS. Que du bonheur

 See you there.

Also THIS! 

Bye for now.

Le 15/05/2018, Concert : Adam Cadell + Danza Cosmos

Le 15/05/2018, Concert : Adam Cadell + Danza Cosmos

Adam Cadell (violon solo, Australie)
Adam est un violoniste itinérant spécialisé dans la découverte des pratiques "underground" de cet instrument, c'est aussi un instrumentiste prolifique et original qui nous fera découvrir une de ses multiples facettes sonores ce soir.

Danza Cosmos (Toulouse)
Laurent Avizou (clarinette) / Heddy Boubaker (guitare) / Youssef Ghazzal (contrebasse)
Il s'agit d'un trio de musique spontanée aux instruments acoustiques ayant pour habitude de s'amplifier - voire se sur-amplifier avec leur version spatialisée guidée par Matthieu Guillin - mais cette fois ci ils présenterons une version 100% acoustique de leur musique, un nouvel univers sonore à découvrir.

20H30 - PAF libre et nécessaire

THAT's right all. That's me above there, performing live in beautiful Toulouse, France. 15/5 at Le Cameleon.

Prior to that I shall be contributing some sounds to the La Rallonge project. 

et apres ca j'avais les autres concerts, including 18/5 at Celtic Pub in Tarbes and more probably to be announced. Keep thine eyes peeled.

Bush Songs Imminent Release

Hello all and sundry,

BUSH SONGS is now up for digital pre-order on my own Bandcamp. I'm about to get out travelling again... Seeking inspiration and honing the skills and also enjoying a holiday largely, though you may catch me somewhere between NYC and the heart of Occitania. In NY shall be spending time once more with Henry Flynt, picking over the world of violin technique and history and looking at his incredible body of work for violin.
Then I shall be in the shadow of the mountains in France....

All of this activity could be helped out by you all, so think about making a pre-order purchase through me directly. You can also of course pre-order the cassette and digital dl via SOFT ABUSE RECORDS as well which I highly recommend. Tapes are limited to 100 and will disappear fast!

BOOM Vacuum will continue in my absence with the April edition including a solo performance of Tony Irving who will premiere his new concussion guitar to all within hearing range. DO NOT MISS.

For any Brisbaners you shall be able to catch me before disappearing this Weds night on stage with Jive Canyon at THIS EVENT.

Until then...
