Jeremiah Cymerman : clarinette, électroniques
Mario Diaz De León : électroniques
Toby Driver : basse électrique
BLOODMIST brings together three high-calibre improvisers who are making wonderfully menacing music with doom metal overtones. Their universe is dark, ambient, and surprisingly rich in nuances.
JEREMIAH CYMERMAN is a well-known clarinetist in the worlds of improvisation and contemporary music composition. He has recorded for Tzadik and worked with Nate Wooley, Matt Bauder, and the great Evan Parker. He is also behind the label 5049 Records. In BLOODMIST, he enhances his instrument with electronics.
In the group’s beginnings, MARIO DIAZ DE LEÓN (of death metal band Luminous Vault) was playing guitar, but for a few years now he has been using a drum machine and the Ciat-Lonbarde Tetrazzi, a rudimentary but highly expressive touch synthesizer.
As the chief of bass frequencies, TOBY DRIVER is unmatched. This legend of the avant-metal scene is the driving force behind the bands Maudlin of the Well and Kayo Dot. A fierce improviser (check out his project Tartar Lamb), he is perfectly at ease in this context.
All three members of BLOODMIST will be making their first appearance in Victoriaville. Don’t miss ’em!
