Jack Dupon is a progressive rock band consisting of two guitars, drums, bass, percussion and singing.
Rather complex to describe, Jack Dupon performs a delirious music, full of humor and rhythm, dynamic, giving free way to the imagination ...
Jack Dupon is primarily a live band communicating a lot through music, but also by their personal universe which really comes through at performances. This adds a higher human dimension, which is mostly felt by the public. An opportunity then appears: let experimental music emerge from the shadows, in order to discover a new landscape remaining accessible to everyone. And this perhaps corresponds to an expectation, even a desire to offer an alternative to formatted music.
The creation of pieces is made in a scientific-empirical manner: Compositions take shape from topics brought by the one or the other, or of complete improvisations recorded and revised in the studio. Songs are often long and explored, their structures are progressive and living as the bed of a river. All of this is performed with amazing precision.
Painted with conformable, tense, brutal or violent atmospheres that can stretch or stand out, the compositions decompose themselves and are reborn in a bouncing movement.
The instrumental instants are punctuated with vocal interventions. Singing is then considered to be a rhythmic or lyrical element; singing exists as the fifth instrument. Vocals are sometimes distant, sometimes audible, and resemble the bubbles of a comic strip. In the purest oratory respect of oral transmission of tales and legends, the group gradually includes voice and singing in the compositions.
Collapsing Opposites e numele de scenă adoptat pentru a descrie creativitatea artistului stabilit în Vancouver: Ryan McCormick. Fiind folosit descriind mai mult partea muzicală, numele scenic a performer-ului are conotaţii artistice precum proza, experimentele sonore, discursurile publice şi arta vizuală. Sound-ul trupei a variat de-a lungul anilor dar vocea distinctă a lui Ryan şi lirica recurentă au reprezentat nota comună ce defineşte întreaga discografie. Concepte precum spaţiul şi timpul, ciudăţenia procesului de maturizare, analiza semnificaţiei şi a valorii, locul artistului în societate şi analiza scenei muzicale actuale ,reprezintă concepte explorate critic de către trupă.
Collapsing Opposites is the name used to describe much of the creative output of Vancouver-based artist Ryan McCormick. While it usually refers to music, the name ‘Collapsing Opposites’ has also included prose, sound experiments, speeches, and visual art. The sound of the band has varied over the years, but Ryan's distinctive voice and recurring lyrical themes have strongly connected its discography. Concepts of space and time, the awkwardness of growing up, analyses of meaning and value, the place of artists within society, and the state of the music scene as it currently exists are all critically explored throughout much of the band's work.
The White Funz e una dintre cele mai prolifice trupe care au apărut în regiunea Insulelor Hebride din Scoţia, la mijlocul anilor ’90, constând din Alexander Borland şi Daniel Potter.
The White Funz mai include foşti membri ai trupelor de indie şi post-folk: Man Meets Bear şi Winks (Drip Audio/Universal records), cu care au cântat foarte mult în turneele din Nord America, Germania şi Balcani. Trupa a împărţit scena cu artişti precum Adrian Orange (US, Marriage Records), Karl Blau (US, K Records) şi Phosphorescent (US, Dead Oceans Records). Sound-ul acestora este unul experimental fiind de greu de descris, trecând de la post-folk la indie, pop şi easy listening.
