Sunn O))) – Live in concert
Sunn O))), founded in March 1998, has definitely influenced the history of music in the last 20 years with there synthesis of drone, metal, minimalism and maximalism. Especially there physically powerful live performances made them famous all around the globe.
Albums like the 1999 published "The Grimmrobe Demos", the classics "Black One" (2006), "Monoliths & Dimensions" (2009), "Soused" (2014) & "Kannon" (2015) as well as the newly published "Downtown LA Rehearsal / Rifftape" (2018) draws tight connections between metal, contemporary art, jazz and minimalism. The basic principle remained the same: Opening space to a maximum of volume and density in an elastically stretchable time. The current cast includes selected guests as well as the power trio Stephen O'Malley (guitar), Greg Anderson (guitar) and longtime band member Tos Nieuwenhuizen (Moog). For 2019, the band has recently announced a new album.
As much more than just a support act, the Danish experimental musician Puce Mary plays in Graz for the very first time. She recently released her new album "The Drought" (2018) on the renowned Berlin label PAN. At the Elevate Festival she presents her newest album together with acoustic treasures from her magic sound archives.
