On October 4th this year renowned experimental artist DIRK SERRIES turns 50. Active for more than 3 decades, over 150 albums in various alter-ego's (vidnaObmana, Fear Falls, Burning, etc.) and some of the most respected international labels (Relapse Records, Projekt, Consouling Sounds, Tonefloat, Conspiracy Records, Extreme, Raw Tonk Records, Trost
Records) solo or in collaboration with some of the finest in today's experimental scene (Justin K. Broadrick, Steven Wilson, Asmus Tietchens, Steve Roach, Steve Noble) and in
Known for his experimental soundscapes, constant will to explore and his free his free improvisation
collaborations, he continues to set new goals and this next level is TONUS.
TONUS as an ensemble grew out of Dirk Serries' jazzcase residency in 2017 for which he
brought together a sextet to work around a slow piano motif by Martina Verhoeven. The literal translation of Tonus is muscle strength, but in this context defines a musical system
that places equal importance on the space between notes. Both definitions apply here as the music is an exercise in discipline and anticipation while controlling the clarity, sustain and
effect of each single note played. The birth of the TONUS happened when Serries realised that he needed a vehicle to explore and perform these exercises, as well as a general classification for his ongoing study in minimalism and free improvisation.
Celebrating his 50th birthday in par with the release of the first two TONUS albums on his own New Wave Of Jazz imprint, Baba Yaga’s Hut & Another Timbre presents this unique
event at Café OTO on October 27th 2018.
