After 5 years, we’ve finally broken our ‘no repeats’ rule. Rhys Chatham played the very first TUSK Festival in 2011 and gave us what remains one of the most joyous TUSK moments to date in the performance of his legendary Guitar Trio piece; leading a carefully recruited local group of drummer, bass and 8 guitarists, Rhys led from the front in a masterpiece demonstration of ecstasy in repetition at Gateshead Old Town Hall.
Rhys will feature in one of the weekend’s first-time collaborations, thrown together with two other unfettered musical polymaths Oren Ambarchi and Sam Shalabi. We couldn’t be more excited about this, to us this is a group line-up direct from Fantasy Island.
at Durbe Community Hall
Rhys Chatham plays a solo set on electric guitar, alto and C flutes, and trumpet as part of the Zemlika Festival.
