Koncert: Timber Rattle (USA, CZ)
19. 11. 2023

TIMBER RATTLE is a roving, revolving and ongoing music project that continues to explore the connections between primordial sound, landscape, and the musics that have derived from our relationships to space and place throughout time. This contemplation manifests in a kind of „pyche-pastoral“, a music both spatially vast and intimately inward-looking, and which seeks to create a celebratory and reflective environment that shares it’s borders with nature and silence.

While never straying too far from the mountain-hymns that are at its roots, the songwriting – which simultaneously embodies and considers its own history and geography – is yet suffused with a vocabulary of drone and sound-experimentation. An intuitive exploration of palette, pattern, and scale is the softly shifting foundation for arcane texts and vocals, which inhere as sound and instrument in the sonic celebration of the meeting and interfolding of land and bodies, animals and plants, language, magic, life and death.

The latest incarnation of TIMBER RATTLE is an all-acoustic trio, who in autumn of 2023 will embark on a European tour, offering an intimate and unamplified version of the project played on guitar, harmonium and drum, and accompanied by veteran ambient artist Drekka, who will lend an unamplified version of his soundscaping to the performance.
