Tinnitus Jukebox and Singing Knive Records are hosting an evening of free improvisation and left-field music from three European groups.

Virginia Genta (saxophones) and David Vanzan (drums) have been bringing their intense and mesmerizing music all over the world since 2003. The duo's work is a totally personal research that has been described as the most powerful expression in “free music” nowadays, transcending every kind of definition and going straight to the source of energy.

"Boss Italian woodwinds/drum duo who skronk the big bulb of freedom as hard as anyone. The overblowing is as insane as either of Borbetomagus’s lips-guys, so it vibes like a collision between them and Flaherty/Corsano duo or something. Raw, loose, jibbery." Byron Coley


Gelba is an improv project founded in 2011 by Michele Mazzani (tape loops, guitar, keyboards) and Matteo Poggi (guitar, fx, tapes). The duo performs an intense set based on visionary field recordings caught on high mountain ridges, complex guitar solutions, and arcane tape loops reprocessed to infinity.


"Dave Jackson free-squeeks the alto sax into Patty Waters/Yoko Ono’s attic.... - Julian Cope

"classic squee-pileage in the post-ESP tradition..... loose sonic collisions and and interwoven blather in ripely extended fire-form, all revolving around theories of meat and its ability to burn. Solid, savage blurt." - Thurston Moore/Byron Coley Bull Tongue - Arthur Magazine
