7.30pm – Phonica Records DJ
8.45pm – Grandbrothers
Following the release of their acclaimed debut album Dilation last year and a sold out show at Dalston’s Vortex Jazz Club coming up this March, Grandbrothers are set to step up to Corsica Studios later in the year.
Grandbrothers are Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel. Together, they combine classical composition with modern, experimental production and sound design. Their debut album Dilation was recorded using a grand piano and a series of self-built electromechanical hammers, which were triggered to ‘play’ the piano, creating new and previously undiscovered sounds. Surprisingly, there are no synthesizers on Dilation: everything comes from the grand piano.
Their one-of-a-kind live show replicates the process by which the duo made Dilation. Their unconventional live setup lends itself to spontaneity: it’s like witnessing open-heart surgery on the grand piano, where no two performances are the same. Meanwhile, the influence of techno and club music on their sound becomes amplified during performance, with exhilarating and often unpredictable results.
