Ilydaen, Glaston and Krane at Schüxenhaus INS
This event is sold out
"Ilydaen has the merit of being appreciated by amateurs of different style. Excluding all the pejorative side, one could almost describe the music of Ilydaen as easy-listening since it is enjoyed alone like at an aperitif or at a jogging where there are 1000 attenders (true-story). Something like a good David Lynch film (...)"

The post-rock band glaston return with brand new music, showing a new side of their unique compositions. After the release of the EP ‘Sailing Stormy Waters’ in 2014, they are finally releasing their debut album ‘Inhale / Exhale’. The piece consists of 10 new songs that were recorded at New Sound Studio with Tommy Vetterli in early 2017. As a purely instrumental band, glaston use their music to address the interaction between reliant contradictions
inhaling and exhaling. No matter how different these forces are, they cannot exist without one another. And that’s exactly what is reflected in the album:
Creative, playful and sometimes complex song structures unleash contrasts between calm and turbulent, rough and smooth. With the Piano being the voice and heart of the songs, Guitar, Bass and Drums constantly play with one another in a battle between hot and cold, dreams and reality.
On ‘Inhale / Exhale‘ glaston is on a journey to find a delicate balance in their music between contrasts and to delve into their love of detail with ever
- unexpected musical confrontations.
Krane is a three-piece band from Basel that was already founded in 2012. Although the first album „ouroboros" was released after the first year, the band was only able to play very few concerts due to various fluctuations and thus remained largely unknown. For two of the band founders the following years were marked by the desperate search for fellow musicians to keep the project alive. This long-lasting search, as well as a flooding in the practice space, could not force Krane to its knees, and a new member was found in 2017. At long last the band is now releasing their second album „Pleonexia" on the label Czar of Crickets.
While the first album revolves around psychosomatics and the accompanying emotional effects, „Pleonexia" takes up the topic of recurring sequences and patterns of warfare in illegal resource conflicts. With „Pleonexia", Krane tries to show these sequences very soberly and neutrally and to musically implement them far away from war glorification.
It was important for all band members to record the new album on their own. Thus, „Pleonexia" was created in the band’s own practice space without any digital sound generators. Mastering was handed over to Simon of BlackArtAudio. Stylistically Krane’s new album is to be placed in the post-metal/-rock genre.
