ADVANCE WARNING: Mono - "Hymn To The Immortal Wind" Malaysian Tour @ KLPac (30/01/2010)

The Story Begins...

Mono is coming to our shore for the second time. I heard last year's gig was really good, so I'm thinking of check them out this time. Hehehe... I've been looping the album for a few times and I'm sinking into the emotion that they brought in each track. Let's drop that and move on!

Soundscape Records is proud to presents a one night only performance by Japanese instrumental rock band, MONO.

Just in time for their 10-year anniversary, MONO return with their fifth studio album, the absolutely massive "Hymn To The Immortal Wind".

After touring almost non-stop for five years, the band hibernated for over a year to focus solely on writing Hymn. The result is their most thoughtful and eclectic album to date. Written and arranged with a hopeful, romantic narrative in mind, the songs string together like chapters in an epic love story. The music is naturally majestic, with MONO’s trademark wall of noise crashing beautifully against the largest chamber orchestra the band has ever enlisted.

The instrumentation is vast, incorporating strings, flutes, organ, piano, glockenspiel and tympani into their standard face-melting set-up.

Recorded to analog tape with long-time friend and producer Steve Albini, there is an intimacy captured here that is at once beautiful and a little terrifying. The creaking of old wooden chairs as the orchestra rocks in their seats (both literally and figuratively), puckered lips rolling along flutes, and even the conductor’s opening cue can be heard during the hauntingly quiet opening moments.

While Hymn continues to mine the cinematic drama inherent in all of MONO’s music, the dynamic shifts now come more from dark-to-light instead of quiet-to-loud. The maturity to balance these elements so masterfully has become MONO’s strongest virtue.

For their upcoming show in Kuala Lumpur, the band will be accompanied by a string section (two violinists and two cellists).


Supporting act:


Deepset, a quartet from Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia, discovered the trial of composition that has been appropriated by indierock after being refined over the centuries by harmonic and sonic experimentation, the birth was late 2002, the band pushed the enthuse to produce instrumental piece which as the band believe that music is nothing without inspiration that has an influence.


The event will be held at Pentas 2, KL Performing Arts Centre on 30th Jan 2010.

I'm planning to go for this. Anyone joining? =)
