RareNoiseRecords presents: GAUDI (FULL BAND) + NEW ALBUM LAUNCH, LIVE at the Borderline, London UK.

To celebrate the release on his new album ‘MAGNETIC’, out on June 16th by RareNoiseRecords, worldwide respected musician and dub-producer Gaudi will perform the whole album LIVE, with his new band project the GAUDI-ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA, at the legendary London venue Borderline, for this one-off amazing show!
The GAUDI–ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA consists in a stellar lineup of top caliber musicians, that not only bring their stand-alone talents but also come with the experience of years of performing live, as members of globally respected bands such as PORCUPINE TREE, LAMB and LOUNGEDELIC.
The bass player in this 'supergroup' is infact Colin Edwin (former bassplayer of Porcupine Tree and a myriad other progressive rock and progressive jazz outfits), he has toured the world multiple times filling stadiums and concert halls and is considered by many to be one of the best living bass players in the world.
The drummer Nikolaj Bjerre, from ‘electronica innovators’ Lamb, is recognized and respected by drummers worldwide for his innovative approach of fusing jazz with electronic music. His sound, both distinctive and punchy, carries weight and power equally well both on dance floors and in the recording studio.
The guitar player Pippo De Palma, from ’psychedelic space-rock trio’ Loungedelic, is an highly versatile and eclectic musician whose signature sound, best described as ‘krautrock-spacedub’, is created live on stage using vintage effect pedals as extra instruments, manipulating them in real time to add a fascinating ‘rolling hypnotic movement’ to the live performance.
Dub maestro GAUDI completes the quartet with his trademark analogue setup consisting in minimoog, theremin, vocoder, tape echoes, dub sirens, keyboards, percussion and live vocals, augmented by an extra mixer, the nerve centre to which each member of the GAUDI-ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA is connected, allowing him to dub his musicians live in real time and create brand new improvised arrangements to every track throughout the show.

The band will perform Gaudi new album "MAGNETIC" (his no.16) for the first time ever in the occasion of this exciting album launch, with copies of it avalable at the venue on cd and on limited edition transparent vinyl and embossed album cover.
The list of artists who have lent their sounds and skills to this album reads like a ‘who’s who’ of musical talent and gives warranted indication as to the quality of the ingredients, with musicians such as Bill Laswell, Jamie Saft, Colin Edwin, Lorenzo Feliciati and Tony Levin on bass (this last is best known for his work with Peter Gabriel and King Krimson), Steve Jansen and Ted Parsons on drum (respectively from art-pop band Japan and cult band Killing Joke), guitarist virtuoso Eraldo Bernocchi and Pippo De Palma, ambient music legend and master of sonic experimentalism Harold Budd, drummer extraordinaire Pat Mastelotto (known for his work with King Crimson, XTC and David Sylvian), post-punk experimental guitarist Buckethead (collaborator with Guns ’n’ Roses, Bootsy Collins, Iggy Pop), legendary composers Roger Eno and Deep Forest to name but a few.
A special event not to be missed.
