Return to OTO for lll人 – the trio of Seymour Wright, Paul Abbott and Daichi Yoshikawa – alongside Yoshikawa's new trio Nakasanye (alongside Antonin Gerbal and Joel Grip) and a solo set from Paul Abbott.
Strange, intense and extreme lll人 is the trio of Daichi Yoshikawa, Paul Abbott and Seymour Wright. Together they have developed extraordinary sounds, and a complex, significant body of work since 2012.
lll人 has no obvious comparisons. The tools are familiar, but the listening is not. lll人 processes are complex, spikey, but open growths of future sound, testing extremes and perfectly reasonable.
наказание/NAKASANYE is “Punishment” in Russian language.
“The group started from playing in Siberia, Kemerovo -26 degree Celsius
We travel in search of the music, we meet people, speak things we do,What we like, what we hate, we eat, we read, we speak, we see, we sleep, everything is the materials of the work. freezing cold temperature outside in Siberia, frozen Томь river Punishment for us is the work. the moment of the work we share.”
Daichi Yoshikawa / feedback
