Oren Ambarchi presents the live version of Knots, the epic centrepiece of
his 2012 release on Touch Audience Of One, described by Mojo as the
''undoubted standout on the Australian guitarist's stunning new album -
nothing can prepare you for its awesome power''. Since then he has
presented the piece around the world in various configurations (documented
on the recent acclaimed Live Knots release on PAN). This version will
feature a special collaboration with Will Guthrie on drums.

Oren Ambarchi is a composer and multi-instrumentalist with longstanding
interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches. His work
focuses mainly on the exploration of the guitar, "re-routing the instrument
into a zone of alien abstraction where it’s no longer easily identifiable
as itself". Ambarchi was chosen as experimental artist of the year by
Pitchfork magazine. He has performed and recorded with a diverse array of
artists such as Fennesz, Charlemagne Palestine, Sunn 0)), Keiji Haino,
Alvin Lucier, John Zorn, Merzbow, Jim O'Rourke, Keith Rowe, Phill Niblock,
John Tilbury and many more. His acclaimed trio with Keiji Haino and Jim
O'Rourke performs in Tokyo annually with many of their concerts documented
on Ambarchi's Black Truffle label. Ambarchi has released numerous
recordings for labels such as Touch, PAN, Southern Lord, Editions Mego,
Drag City, Kranky and Tzadik. His solo release Sagittarian Domain was voted
#1 in Spin magazine's Best Avant albums of 2012. His last major solo
release is Quixotism which was listed in The Wire magazine's top 50
releases of 2014. Ambarchi was chosen as experimental artist of the year by
Pitchfork magazine. - orenambarchi.com

Will Guthrie is an Australian drummer and percussionist. He works in many
different settings of music: live performance, improvisation and studio
composition using various combinations of drums, percussion, objects,
amplification and electronics.- will-guthrie.com

Former guitarist and founder of the duo Harry Pussy (later a trio) Bill
Orcutt ́s sound is a stuttered reimagining of blues guitar. One can hear
familiar Southern folk scales between his jagged solo acoustic phrases,
pulling and pushing melodies into unresolved fragments that eventually come
unmoored in vast and satisfying note-torrents. - palilalia.com
