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.

KALASHNIKOV COLLECTIVE din Milano

VISE OD MILIMETRA din Temerin

PAVILIONUL 32 din Timisoara

ora 21:00, 28 aprilie 2011, Atelier DIY.



Kalashnikov were born in 1996 on the dirty floor of a squat in Milan, to give vent to the adolescent restlessness of three guys with their ears clogged by Wretched, Bad Religion and Clash. Under the drunkenness of the heavenly libertarian nectar and rejecting the ruling alternative thrash music, Kalashnikov are created with the wish to put together their own utopias and passion. Through the years there were many changes either in the line-up, or in our music and our lyrics, but anyway some features have lasted: Kalashnikov have always played a concentration of melodic and fast music with high libertarian spirit, following the path of DIY.

Vise od milimetra are a band from temerin near novi sad, they answered to some questions:

1. Who writes lyrics in your band and what are they about?

A: We all (almost) wrote some lyrics for the songs we play. We also play songs written by our former members. Some of them are personal, some “political”, some are just jokes.

Two absolutely ripping French hardcore bands.

Koenigstein Youth are new to me and they really blew me away... fast, complex hardcore with lots of weird, quirky rhythms that keep things super interesting without losing any of the aggression. Great stuff.

Strong as Ten you probably know from the several 7"s they've put out already.
This French band who play blistering thrash in the Euro tradition. What do I mean by that? Well, expect lots of simple 1-2 oompah-doompah beats played at blistering tempos and silly puns on the word "thrash" ("Frank Sinathrash?" really?). If you like your HC simple and fast give this one a try.
