LOU REED'S METAL MACHINE TRIO UK AND EUROPEAN TOUR APRIL 2010

lou reed

Lou Reed's Metal Machine Trio UK And European April 2010 Tour coincides with the digitally remastered edition release of Reed's 1975 seminal album 'Metal Machine Music' - released in 5.1 Surround Sound on double vinyl, Blu Ray & Audio DVD.

Lou Reed's Metal Machine Trio: MM3 will be performing what is being described as 'A Night of Deep Noise' that features Lou Reed on processed and unprocessed guitars, Ulrich Krieger on tenor sax and live-electronics, and Sarth Calhoun on continuum and live processing – a collaborative affair that will see all three musicians improvise music and make soundscapes. The Metal Machine Trio originally debuted at the REDCAT Theatre in Los Angeles in October 2008.

Each concert will feature no songs and no vocals. The trio will utilise guitars, saxophones, continuum, plus an array of electronic treatments that will venture into deep acoustic space. The collaboration will draw on new music, free jazz, avant-rock, noise and ambient in a set of intense conceptual pieces and intuitive improvisations.

The Metal Machine Trio concerts will be influenced and inspired by Lou Reed's seminal 1975 album Metal Machine Music. The concerts won't duplicate the original album but will instead opt for entirely new unique music, noise and soundscapes.

Lou Reed and Ulrich Krieger originally met each other in 2002 for the premiere of Krieger's transcription and arrangement of Metal Machine Music - Reed's seminal guitar feedback epic, performed by the Berlin-based chamber orchestra Zeitkratzer. Reed was so impressed with Ulrich's transcription, that he flew to Berlin to perform guitar with Zeitkratzer's live interpretation of the album.

To coincide with the UK and European tour dates, Lou Reed will release a newly re-mastered edition of the original 1975 Metal Machine Music album on 180 gram double gatefold vinyl, Audio DVD and Blu-ray. Each format features a stereo reproduction of the original quadraphonic master, playable on home theatre systems.

The re-mastered edition of the album will be released domestically in the UK first week in April 2010, and will coincide with the UK and European tour dates. Further info about the re-mastered edition of the 1975 album can be found at www.loureed.com/metalmachinemusic.

Lou Reed on the re-mastered edition of Metal Machine Music:

"The original. The one that started it all. Noise Rock. Industrial Road. Underground for years, it survived on the power of the idea. No key. No Vocals. No set rhythm. Feedback forever. Supervised by Lou Reed and faithfully re-mastered to the last squeal. The out of print "Quad" has been replicated for all formats including a perfect vinyl version playable on your stereo turntable with the original rear sections moved to the centre of the front left speakers. It's worth getting a turntable to hear this. I myself bought a Linn to celebrate the great sound and am playing it through Wilson Watts and Puppies. Here it as we did on Scott Hull's Duntechs. Straight from the original Bob Ludwig tapes. An act of love for an act of sound."
