Olivier Di Placido

Olivier Di Placido is a self-taught musician who performs on electric guitar.He's curently living in Berlin.
His approach is mainly focused on the manipulation and the use of each elements of the guitar as an instrument (magnetic pick-up, steal strings, electricity, unscrewed neck...)
By adding few objects to this primitive set up, he's able to create natural distortion, pitch, tremolo, flanger effect.... without using any electronic pedals.
he develops a world of tensions and ruptures with an approach to the guitar that is both minimal and noisy.
As an improviser, he has played on concert with many musicien as well as solo performance in Germany, France, Switzerland, Poland, Sweeden and Italy.

Hindi/Di Placido + Duo Tuerlinckx/Adachi

20 Feb 2015 - 21:00

Duo Hindi/Di Placido
Jassem Hindi: Broken objects, diverted machines
Olivier Di Placido: prepared guitar, pick ups

Nervous cuts and fast dynamic changes in a sea of abrasive sounds.  Di Placido / Hindi perform a musique concrete sullied by a live practice and a love of danger.  A territory filled by broken guitars, lo-fi field recordings, magnetic fields, scraps, idiots.

Duo Tuerlinckx/Adachi
Anaïs Tuerlinckx (inside piano)
Tomomi Adachi (live-processing, voice, outside piano)

10 contact microphones pick up noises from Tuerlinckx' inside piano and objects. Adachi transforms them into thundering electronic sounds. Harsh and dynamic interactions among piano, voice and electronics.
