Oren Ambarchi & Will Guthrie (2018)

Sydney, AU/Nantes, FR

Avant-garde improvisers Oren Ambarchi and Will Guthrie are teaming up for a guitar- and percussion-based set of new music at this year’s Sled Island. They’ve been pairing on and off for a number of years now, building an intuitive dynamic that allows great improv to flow naturally. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Ambarchi has collaborated with Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley, Merzbow and Jim O’Rourke, or that Guthrie has intermingled with choreography and filmmaking while dedicating himself to artist collectives in both Australia and France.
