Damian Catera, who is primarily known for his work with the US based power electronics group ConDemek (TECHNOLOGICAL SHACKJOB 1997 Tesco -Functional) will be touring Europe during May of this year. He will be promoting a new live CD release entitled deCOMPOSITIONS.
Catera performs intensely chaotic improvised music using a guitar laptop and radio, which he samples and manipulates with software that he wrote himself. The results are a constantly changing soundscape, where sounds are cut up, rearranged and moved in randomized patterns throughout the space.
"I like working with the multidimensionality of time and space."
"I like to do a new and original piece every night and really ejoy manipulating the sampled sounds from local radio. This gives each performance a site specific element
that can't be duplicated. I don't bring any sounds with me. This music is of the moment.
Everything that you hear is being generated and experienced in real time.
The space and location where it is being performed is an integral element"
Catera's most recent release is a collaboration with KK Null entitled FREAKOUT MODULATION which came out on his New York based Harsh House label. He recently performed in Europe
at the Prague Industrial Festival, as well as in Wroclaw, Poland and Rostock, Germany
with Schloss Tegal.
