Music for One/Stefano Tedesco

2 Jun 2006 - 21:30

MUSIC FOR ONE is stark and simple guitar motifs that draw melodic
inspiration from old acoustic blues and Erik Satie. They mingle with a
modern experimental aesthetic that is created live in front of the
audience with a guitar, effects, and bits from the hardware store. As
chaotic as the times we live in, it can change at any given moment,
effects boxes twisting the emotive tones into a cavernous roar of
feedback and throbbing clicks.

Light and dark, loud and quiet, it’s somewhat comforting to know
that a guitar can still confuse and enchant an audience. MUSIC FOR ONE
is Sherry, a Canadian now living in London, and she has played on bills
alongside artists such as AGF, Sunn0))) and My Cat is an Alien.
Available for the tour will be a newly released 3" CD from the Japanese
label, Electric Folklore, featuring a remix by Justin of Do Make Say
Think. She also has a 7" record on Seren Records and 3 self-released
CDs.
