Minor Matter, Stocatta and Cougars in America at Vangelis
November 15, 2014 @ 10:00 pm
Focusing on tempo changes, alterations, improvisations, Minor Matter develops music collaboratively. They are not afraid to try something out of the ordinary. There are plenty of genres nearly fit for each song, but to lay down a broad type, they call what they play ‘alternative chamber folk’.
Stocatta is an ensemble dedicated to transmitting sonification to your senses. Bridging the gap between hopefulness and melancholy, the audience is engaged through a unique head-space with rhythmic passages, satisfying melodies, and thoughtful lyrics.
Cougars in America is the new alt-folk project of Canadian-turned-Bruxellois singer-songwriter, Scott Hamilton. Poet, multi-instrumentalist, and troubadour, he transforms his world into song. Taking his name from a cat that lives on only in popular myth, his lyrics express an image of humanity lost, tragic, comic and beautiful. Armed with his guitar, harmonicas, stylophone, loopstation and voice, he creates an atmosphere that is intimate, sincere, and overwhelming. His music has been compared to Bonnie Prince Billy or Sufjan Stevens, and serves in equal measures American Folk, Blues, and Indie Rock.
