Mills Record Company

Recognized as one of the most inventive avant-rock bands around, Aquaserge are once again looking to expand their scope with this special project. They've tackled the field of contemporary classical music from the middle of the 20th century by paying tributes to four major atypical figures: Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988), György Ligeti (1923-2006), Edgar Varèse (1883-1965) and Morton Feldman (1926-1987). Drawing inspiration from Scelsi's exploration of timbres and oscillations, Ligeti's moving clusters, Varèse's melodic cubism and Feldman-type graphic scores, Aquaserge have approached this album with a mixture of raw intuition and strict method, and have created pieces for a hybrid, semi-classical and semi-rock expanded 9-piece line-up. The band's original compositions are completed by interpretations of three rare songs written by Edgar Varèse (on a poem by Verlaine) and Morton Feldman (on a Rilke text), which remind us of Aquaserge's taste for melodies. These pieces and some others will be performed as part of a musical and theatrical show entitled The Possibility of a New Work for Aquaserge - Lost in a Guitar Case.Aquaserge have been a subterranean driving force in the international music scene, inspiring and influencing countless musicians & fans. They've knitted an extended web of connections by collaborating with the likes of Tame Impala, Stereolab, Acid Mothers Temple, Aksak Maboul & more. Aquaserge are equally admired for the creativity of their compositions and for their powerful and exciting concerts.
