start):Marylise Frecheville -
percussion & voice / Eric Boros - guitar & voice.Eric Boros (Erik Boros¹)
began his musical career as a school-band trumpetist at a young age. Since then
he has performed many times in many different "nation states" around
the globe, and has participated in a wide variety of phonographic recordings
- despite having crumpled his trumpet a long time ago in a fit of rage. For
his work with different ensembles he plays stringed acoustic and electric guitars,
while producing complex operatic "sounds" with his own voice. Although
he lives without electricity, or any modern appliances (other than his solar-powered
shortwave radio), he is a completely un-skilled electrician, and has used this
"un-skill" to construct electronic gadgets to generate accompaniment
frequencies to his symphonic pieces. Boros has been living in seclusion on an
island, but travels regularily by kayak for Vialka repetitions and tours. He
is a breath-air-ian, book reader, practicing pacifist, and tea-drinker.
Marylise Frecheville was put on stage when she was three years old and became addicted to it. It is a matter of intestine regulation you see. After classical training in dancing, singing, drama and piano, she joined her first "rebel-without-a-cause" teenager garage band in 1993, where she played keyboards, sang out-of-tune, and eventually beat the skins. So now instead of building cathedrals, running after rabbits, or boozing until brain failure, she performs in various ways; constantly pushing insanity and constipation further away. Vialka is her latest baby, it shouts, it cries, it laughs, it whines - oh no! - it shit itself again, but it is still the most beautiful in the world. By the way, Marylise likes the little thing so much that she made a cartoon and movie of it; a story to actively remember the beginning of the millenium in which we are all going to die from severe screeningitis.
gulpepsh(11:40pm start) is quite simply the yamatsuka eye of beatboxing, his vocal styles are so complex he would make joel turner wish he called his band the modern day dipshits! you will not believe he is just a man with a microphone, vocal chords, esophagus, tongue and lips! doddodo(11:10pm start) delivers her own brand of kawai casio-spastic melodies interlaiden with hoe-down blip-gabber beats
