John Wiese is an artist and composer living in Los Angeles, California. He works primarily in recorded and performed sound with a focus on installation and multi-channel diffusions, as well as scoring for large ensembles. He has toured extensively throughout the world, covering the US, UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. He is also a founding member of the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek, in recent years has entered the line-up of the legendary Smegma, and has collaborated with Pain Jerk, Evan Parker, Sunn O))), Merzbow, Wolf Eyes, C Spencer Yeh, Kevin Drumm and many more.

You've no doubt heard the rave reports regarding John's recent album for the great PAN label, Seven Of Wands and know his astounding back catalogue that finds itself filed under noise but isn't done justice by that narrow pigeonhole, with a technique more akin to the scientific precision of the late and legendary Maryanne Amacher, combined with tape collage, bloodyminded humour and a raft of sublime collaborations. Live, there's a deft artistry to John's work that sets him ahead of most others working in his area, his live shows as searing and explosive as they are intricately constructed.

"Wiese has reached a point in his career where he is informing the direction of the genre rather than following it, and these delectable selections of nouveau concrete sound as alien as they do referential. He knows his Xennakis, Ferrari and Hecker that's for sure, but 'Seven of Wands' is something all its own, and all the better for it. Needless to say, it's one of the most twisted pieces of sound manipulation you'll hear all year."


Debut Cork gig. Do not miss.
"anti-social riffs while moose melts your brain"
"Totally demented, anti social, twisted rock, with patented Moose noise. Should appeal to fans of Pissed Jeans/The Jesus Lizard/Amphetamine Reptile records."

We're proud to be holding a special Black Sun screening of PERSONAL DISCIPLINE

Personal Discipline (Lićna disciplina, 1982) gives one of the earliest examples of punk aesthetics in Yugoslav cinema. The act of shaving one’s head, which is what Terek does here, was a symbol of denunciation of the army in Yugoslav film but not one often performed by a woman.
