Oakland Freedom Jazz Society Presents:



Ypsmael is a live electronics project originating in England in the late 2000s. Crafting textural sound washes and live loops without a computer or presets of any kind, Ypsmael uses an array of electronic and acoustic sound sources, sonic artifacts and audio detritus derived from various instruments, circuit-bent and amplified objects and sometimes field recordings at the core of his compositional and improvisational approach. In over a hundred live appearances around Europe and across the Atlantic, Ypsmael has been collaborating with or performing solo in support of the late Dieter Moebius (Cluster), Damo Suzuki (Can), Michael Pisaro, Theresa Wong, Simon Whetham, Nate Young & Mike Connelly (Wolf Eyes, Failing Lights), Seymour Wright (lll人), BJ Nilsen, Simon Scott (Slowdive), Jeph Jerman, Jack Wright, Steve Norton, Crank Sturgeon, I’d M Thfft Able, Christian Kobi, Ryan Jordan, Alexander Tucker, Pimmon, John Chantler, Olivier Dumont & Rodolphe Loubatière, Circuit des Yeux, Ben Bennett, Franziska Baumann, Adam Parkinson, Emptyset, Hackacomb and many more.
