Rightly renowned as one of the pre-eminent forces of the noise art movement, Black Dice have built a reputation as one of the most mercurial, abrasive and overwhelming live music experiences touring the world today.From their origins as an occasionally violent post-hardcore outfit in the late 90s, through to the improvised distortion epics that marked their middle years, Black Dice have emerged in 2011 as a techno-influenced amalgam of noise atmospherics, jaggedly programmed beats and snatched, scrambled sample work.
Feared and respected in equal measure, Black Dice's live shows are relentless audio-visual assaults, exercises in virtuosic musical cohesiveness and defiant experimentation that will splinter opinion and also, potentially, your eardrums. L.A Experimental film maker Danny Perez will be joining Black Dice to provide an incredible brain melting visual component to the show. Danny is best known for his work on Animal Collective's ODDSAC DVD and for providing the incredible visuals for Panda Bear.
Listening to Lucky Dragons is like having your preconceptions of what music should be gently disassembled and recombined by two of your oldest friends. Armed with a varied and ever-changing array of synthesisers, loop pedals, wind instruments and percussive elements, the Lucky Dragons live experience is half interactive art project, half neo-hippy freak jam, and all shimmering sonic dreamscape.
