Renowned Bassists Julie Slick and Marco Machera To Play Select East Coast Shows With King Crimson Drummer Pat Mastelotto…
Having met through the Three of a Perfect Pair Music Camp in 2011, bassists Julie Slick and Marco Machera started collaborating in April 2014, when Julie flew to Italy after her Crimson ProjeKCt European tour, to play a short run of shows in Tuscany. The rehearsal went very well, and very spontaneously, some brand new songs were written and in turn, played to some very appreciative Italian audiences. The impromptu ‘bass duets’ ended up being so satisfying and well-received that Julie and Marco eventually decided to write more material together and record an album, “Fourth Dementia” (July 2014).
The project reinvents the role of electric bass and brilliantly displays the songwriting abilities of the duo; a captivating combination of loop music, ambient soundscapes and interlocking bass patterns, always melodic yet aggressive and edgy at times.
On this very special album release tour, the duo will be joined by legendary drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mr Mister, XTC, Stick Men, Chrysta Bell), and guitarist extraordinaire Tim Motzer (Ursula Rucker, David Sylvian, Markus Reuter, DJ King Britt, Burnt Friedman, Jaki Liebezeit, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jamaaladeen Tacuma). Designer Dejha Ti will accompany the music with her stunning visuals that will surely render this a night not soon to forget (and certainly not be missed)!
