ORCHESTRA TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP

Just like the artist in whose honor the band is named, Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp likes to mess with the conventions of pop just as much as the Dadaist Duchamp liked to mess with the conventions of art. This Geneva-based, six-piece band (consisting of former members of Dog Faced Hermans, Spaceheads, Headache, CreveCoeur) crafts pop tunes, but not without tearing them apart through vocalist Liz’s shriekings, erratic drum bangings, uncommon instruments, noise erruptions, … They fuse the wild and free attitude of post punk with tropical and afrobeat vibes. Blasting trombones, skillfully played marimba, screaming vocals, roaring guitars. Their new album ROTOROTOR (a nod to Duchamp’s famous rotoreliefs and to the latter’s taste for palindromes) is a manifesto for free and adventurous music, organised in versatile pop songs; playful and fervent, incandescent, funny and impetuous, assuming without ostentation a sort of fragmented futurist traditionalism, combining festivity and war, wedding dances and battle-cries.

LAURA SHEERAN

Laura Sheeran, hails from Co. Galway but currently resides in Dublin where she has been writing, recording and gigging since 2007. Sheeran sings and performs on a loop station, bowed saw, melodica, accordion, flute, ukulele, and used a TC Helicon Voice Live 2 to manipulate her vocals and create harmonies. She frequently incorporates improvisation into her performances. Blending classical influences with heavy electronic production and filtering it all through a dark witching gauze Laura’s music is both melancholic, rich and powerful and has led her to be described as “an episode of Twin Peaks in female form”.

A ‘creative dynamo’, Laura has an extensive back catalogue of work to date including a number of soundtracks that she has done for various theater shows and short films, her solo (and collaborative) CD/Vinyl/digital releases, not to mention a series of videos she herself has filmed, edited and released in tandem with her music.

ART SLUG

Art slug is a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc. Art slug has recently begun a painfully slow trek through musical landscapes laden with the weight of the massively fucking important art which it carries on its back. Art slug hopes to continue its trek to reach the far depths of the sound receptors within your ear. Art slug.
