Biography

Von Magnet, probably best described as -, combines multiple layers of artistry to create an experience of sight and sound for their audiences. Painters, makeup artists, dancers, and even the musicians of Von Magnet all play an important role in the dramatic live presentations. The music of Von Magnet builds from minimal and sometimes metallic sounds into immense pieces using a host of instruments. A wide variety of percussion instrumentation is present, in addition to flamenco, bass and electric guitars, sitars, violins, electronics and some of the most intense vocals heard by many.

Keep in mind whilst listening that the main artist, Phil Von, is a very talented flamenco-dancer, and, once getting fed up with the traditional and non-progressive way of flamenco-music, decided to make his own. Filled with samples, of lyrics, of other artists instruments, or his own dancing on a wooden amplified box, it has something industrial as well as danceable.
Their shows are dramatic, story-telling performances, but always with a large role for flamenco-music. It is a highly explosive and confusing show, often making use of the surroundings. The whole theater is the stage.

    One of the most underestimated avantgarde projects in the world. Personally, I love the Flamenco Mutants and the far more recent Ni predateur, ni proie releases most of all. It's good news that the gathered a bigger audience with the latter release. Hope to see them live once.

    Whatever. This is incredible. Love the energy, the tribal feel to it. Just what I was looking for. Something with a powerful, fresh, creative edge to it. ^^

    and "experimental-avant-garde" sounds kind of redundant.
