Tangents is a Sydney-based quintet that melds electronic production, experimental rock and free improvisation.
The group formed in 2010 with the curation of a one-off improv concert by guitarist Shoeb Ahmad and cellist Peter Hollo, at Megaphon Studios in Sydney. A recording of that concert, via post-production, became their first LP, “I”, a joint release in 2013 on Shoeb’s hellosQuare label and the Not Applicable label, co-founded by Tangents laptoppist, London-born electronic music experimenter Ollie Bown. “I” laid out the band’s range in drone aesthetics, noise, free improvisation and electronic rhythms. In subsequent output, Tangents have striven to change up their process. 2016’s “Stateless”, their first LP with New York label Temporary Residence, is a construction of overdubs and edited jam sessions that is eclectic, strongly electronic and revelrous. 2018’s “New Bodies”, marks out a space in-between through studio improvisations and post-processing, manifesting in moments of post-rock and jazz that mixes virtuosic improvisation with studio trickery.
Tangents are: Shoeb Ahmad (guitars, effects), Ollie Bown (computer, electronic production), Evan Dorrian (drums), Peter Hollo (cello, effects), Adrian Lim-Klumpes (piano, Rhodes, vibraphone, synths). Bands related to Tangents through common members include Icarus, Spartak, FourPlay String Quartet, Triosk, Sensaround, Agency, Haunts and 3ofmillions.
“Remarkable, transportive music.” – Scott Wallace, Sydney Scoop.
