COLIN WEBSTER & DIRK SERRIES – GARGOYLES (CD, Raw Tonk Records 2018)
Brand new on RAW TONK RECORDS is the duality between sax player Colin Webster and electric guitarist Dirk Serries. Gargoyles is the duo that pushes the envelope even further in their ongoing collaborations (KODIAN TRIO, TONUS, etc.).
DIRK SERRIES – EPITAPH (2xCD / 2xLP, Consouling Sounds 2018)
Dirk Serries’ ambient swansong, EPITAPH, is now available in a regular edition (2xCD or 2xLP) or a special limited edition (100 copies). This is a must for all vidnaObmana and Microphonics fans and the last in a chapter of a long history.
DISTANT CURVING HORIZON. THE PRIMAL BROKEN PASSAGE. BENEATH THE SCORCHING SUN (CD, Midira Records)
In 2015 three artists came together for a studio session: Dirk Serries on guitar, Tomas Järmyr (Yodok, Zu, Motorpsycho, Werl, Sunswitch, Saw) on drums and Eirik Havnes (Saw) on guitar. You might say this music originates in the 2014 releases “Ashes and Blues” by The Void Of Expansion (Serries/Järmyr) and “No Way Black” by SAW (Havnes/Järmyr). While both duos were planning new recording sessions, the idea of a collaboration emerged – and so a session was scheduled for May 16th 2015. This album is the result of what happened that day in a basement studio in downtown Trondheim. No written music, an all improvised first encounter. The result of this improvised session is a 55minutes long beast of different layers and styles. It´s jazzy, it´s krautrock, it´s spacerock, it´s drone and something inbetween.
