NICA live: Granular Epic & Blanco Teta


Pablo Giw and Brad Henkel
Granular Epic

Granular Epic is the title of the evening of the two experimental trumpet players Pablo Giw & Brad Henkel, whose paths have crossed as a duo since 2014. With Granular Epic they build ambient heavy, melancholic complex music, which is abstract samples as well as oppressive bionic drum machines. Both are able to use their trumpets beyond conventional a wide spectrum of sounds with their trumpets and combine them with organic with organic samples, microtonal synths, drones and noisy beats.

Brad Henkel lives in Berlin, as a trumpeter and improviser he is part of the KIM Collective, plays in the bands Spoiler (with Julia Reidy, Liz Kosack, Sam Hall), Warble and Merry Peers (with Yoshiko Klein).

Pablo Giw is a trumpet player and performer from Cologne, Germany. In his music he combines influences of experimental music, urban beat aesthetics and improvisation. He works a lot in the interdisciplinary field, as in his duo SUM with the dancer Kelvin Kilonzo

B l a n c o t e t a | it's an experimental rock project, with the aggressiveness and simplicity of punk but with a great twist: a relentless distorted noise soundscapes, edgy performances, transfeminist concept with an avant-garde approach. Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, born in 2017 with the need to find a unique sound with an atypical formation, given by the presence of the processed cello. Blanco teta is formed by Carola Zelaschi on drums, Carlos E. Quebrada on electric bass and Violeta García on cello. They had released their first Album BLANCO TETA on tape in 2017 under the record label TVLREC and during 2019 they recorded their second album which was released in March 2020 through the label GOZARECORDS. More than a band, Blanco Teta is a performative and visual proposal that establishes a dialogue with the audience. Going to a Blanco Teta show is an immersive experience with high levels of relentless energy and madness. Blanco Teta represents a great movement that articulates with other transfeminist experimental collectives from the upcoming queer latinx scene. They have played in numerous popular venues in the Buenos Aires experimental scene.They are currently working on "ROMPEPAGA" their third album.
