Skills exchange member Black Sun returns to the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork on Saturday 31st March for a night of powerful intensity.
Black Sun welcomes artist and composer John Wiese (USA), Wölfbait, the Irish premiere of 80’s Serbian underground film, Personal Discipline and a performance from First Blood Part II and Wölflinge.
So who is John Wiese? Well he’s an artist and composer from LAs, California. He works primarily in recorded and performed sound with a focus on installation and multi – channel diffusions as well as scoring for large ensembles. His ongoing projects include LHD and Sissy Spacek, but he’s known for his collaborations with many artists as diverse as Sunn O))), Wolf Eyes, Merzbow, Thurston Moore, Bastard Noise, No Age, Smegma, Kevin Drumm, Cattle Decapitation and C. Spencer Yeh as well as his work as a solo artist.
He has toured extensively throughout the worldincluding Europe, Scandinavia and Australia as a member of Sunn O))), the UK as part of the Free Noise tour (a tentet including Evan Parker, C. Spencer Yeh, Yellow Swans, etc.), the US alongside Wolf Eyes and recently performed in the 52nd Venice Biennale with artist Nico Vascellari.
While releasing albums on a variety of international labels, Wiese often releases work on his own label, Helicopter. You’ve no doubt heard the rave reports regarding John’s recent album for the great PAN label, Seven Of Wands and know his astounding back catalogue that finds itself filed under noise but isn’t done justice by that narrow pigeonhole with a technique more akin to the scientific precision of the late and legendary Maryanne Amacher, combined with tape collage, bloodyminded humour and a raft of sublime collaborations.
Live, there’s a deft artistry to John’s work that sets him ahead of most others working in his area, his live shows as searing and explosive as they are intricately constructed. This upcoming Black Sun will be shaken by a piercing cry of defiance swelling up from an astonishing and all-but-unknown zone of film history. Miroslav-Bata Petrović and Julijana Terek’s Personal Discipline (1983), without doubt the rarest film Black Sun has yet presented, is a product of the early ‘80s Serbian underground. Throbbing with punk attitude, it details a private ritual enacted by writer/performer Terek spilling onto the street in an irresistible upsurge of self-assertion in the face of repressive societal indifference. The pounding rhythms of Petrović’s aggressive editing combine with Terek’s beguiling concentration to create an experience liable to leave the viewer gasping for breath
Black Sun is delighted to be giving Personal Discipline its Irish premiere!
Also lined up is the debut Cork appearance from Wölfbait.
First Blood Part II and Wölflinge return again for bewildering and raw, intimate action.
