Francesco Tristano live at RoBOT Festival 2012

Francesco Tristano played a festival called RoBOT in Bologna in Italy in earlier this year, listen below. It's a whole lotta live, piano-based amazingness. Tristano is nothing if not a little experimental. His roots are in classical music and dare I say it... jazz.. - but PLEASE don't let that put you off at ALL. He's from Luxembourg but went to Juillard in New York where he learned classical music and then went clubbing. He releases classical music also but his heart seems to be in piano playing and beats. Lots of 'em. SWOON. Throw him on the MUST SEE LIVE list.

I first heard about Francesco Tristano as John Talabot remixed a tune by a band called Aufgang (check that remix out here) and as I am mildly obessed with John Talabot I looked Aufgang up. Tristano is in Aufgang* and I subsequently found this video of him playing piano live on stage with Carl Craig up the back waiting to throw in some beats. A version of this tune called 'The Melody' is in the live set above. To this day it is possibly one of the best things I have ever come across on the internet. Check this out, it's one of my most watched youtube videos ever:

*I am going to write a full post about Aufgang in the future but I previously posted a podcast they did for Soundwall - check it out here.

There's a festival called RoBOT? Gimme!

Swooner Movie Nights: Ivory Tower

Swooner just had its first movie night in association with Portobello Picturehouse. We showed 'Ivory Tower' - a bizarre comedy about chess written by and starring Tiga and Chilly Gonzales. It is about as ridiculous as it sounds, with amazing Chilly Choons throughout. Check out the trailer below, and check out the movie if you like Chilly or Tiga or Peaches or chess or the concept of jazz chess.

If you are based in Dublin and interested in joining future Swooner movie screenings, like Swooner on Facebook for more information or leave a comment below!

Chilly Gonzales plays The Sugar Club on Thursday Dublin 6th - get tickets here.

It's hard to keep up with all the Throne Of Blood podcasts but this one caught my ears due to its inordinate amount of space laser noises. Chilled disco turns into some heavier slick beats via some quality deep house - from Max Pask:

Exceptions: whatever the first tune is, which is from the end of zev's set. hey chica at 29:30 is a derrick carter remix of tony senghore which I just like having in my set. and the beach house tune at the end is my illegal bootleg re-edit" - some lovely, quality deep house and includes his new tune 'Heartbeat' just out on Soul Clap records, a more rock-based house tune. Very enjoyable set:

The Beardytron 5000 - Beardyman live in India October 2012

SO. Beardyman has spent 6 years designing new kit with a man called Dave, and has called said kit The Beardytron 5000. He used it for this gig he did in India. "It can do things no other looper in the world can do, small but vital advances which are fundamental to allowing a complex and dynamic looping based live-production performance possible." For more info on the kit check it here. The set is mental as usual. Completely banging, rapping, covering, joking, singing - if you are a fan at all it's well worth a listen.

Video: Jon Hopkins live at Skif Festival 2010

Have stayed up way too late watching this on occasion. No idea what sort of equipment he is using but he is going to town on it like a man possessed. Possessed by fucking awesomeness. In between slugs of beer. What a legend. And a dreamboat to boot. How can he make songs so hauntingly beautiful yet so fucking banging at the same time?! Too bad you can't hear the crowd, I'd say they were going flip mode. Now,  be warned, the sound cuts out for a second around 6'30" but stick with it, it's only for a moment and then it really gets going.
