3. No Wave Est – Tilos Maraton 2013


tilos maraton570-2

On the 9th of  June the “No Wave” evening, the section of Tilos Maraton 2013, will be held the third time. Who knows  the probably oldest radio show of Tilos Rádio, should also know what to expect. Who doesn’t know it, there is the possibility to try it. Essentially, the performers, who are not interested the audience’s expectations and who are not concerned with the conventional music forms, present their momentary or chronic thoughts about music, or rather that they can show or perform of these. In this year I tried to widen the music’s spectrum, therefore I invited musicians from other kinds of music world. More of them are internationally noted musicians, some of them perhaps are at the beginning of their career. It is sure, all of them are searching continously the newer soundings and music utterances.

IMPORTANTS!   Who can not come to the concert , they can listen the live stream in the No Wave” show of Tilos Rádió from 22:00.

Curator: Pál Tóth, the editor of  Tilos Rádió’s “No Wave” show.

Péter Homoki (dj Sztyepp) is a fellow worker of Tilos Rádió and one of Úzgin Űver‘s musicians, he gives an improvising solo concert, and he guides the audience to the strange spaces by his  guitar  and  many pedals.

(electronics, CD players, objects, contact microphones, „silence”)

In this current piece, én, his own way, tries to remain on the quiet  “the not quite suitable space”. Of course, you can listen the sounds of his regular  arsenal. If you are also silently, you can listen the SILENCE. And it should happen otherwise. In this case the walls and the windows should shake.
én is a sound artist and radio producer. He was the program editor of the illegal community radio of Budapest, Tilos Rádió (Forbidden Radio) from 1993–94 and then a member of the legal Tilos Rádió in 1995, where he edits programs for today’s experimental, electroacoustic and underground music developments in his show No Wave. His compositions – which are often situated at the limit of hearing – draw on the results of concrete music, plunderphonics and sound-formation as well as sound art. én chooses sound samples from his own collection and environmental sounds which he recorded himself, and sounds made by himself on computer in order to compose, and so finally and successfully eliminates the unnecessary separations of composition and the preparation of music, the broadcast of music and musical performance.

Kovács Gergely was first influenced by rock/metal, but jazz soon became his »music«. He got his first drum set when he was 16 and joined a garage band in his village. He was inspired by the album “ZU & Spaceways Inc.” to explore music further. His thesis in his final year at university was on: “The communication features of twentieth-century classical music, from Satie to Cage”.
Miroslav Tóth (SK) composer, saxophone player, lives in Bratislava and Gabčíkovo. He is the founder and artistic leader of audivisual project Frutti di Mare, improvise chamber orchestra Musica Falsa et Ficta, Dunkeltherapie and a member of other experimental music projects (Shibuya Motors). In his music he is interested in both composition and improvisation, often crossing the borders between the genre and style contexts, ranging from free improvisation to noise and contemporary classical music.
