Cactus Truck
Are You FREE?

Cactus Truck: Are You FREE? (BeCoq)

Label: BeCoq    
Released in: France    


"Cactus Truck creates startlingly intense music, not merely in terms of volume or velocity but through complete physical/psychological surrender. One can find hints of delta blues, early free jazz, Japanese noise, and no wave in the music. They're based in Amsterdam and Cactus Truck's members have collaborated with many of the great improvisers on the international scene, as well as with members of The Ex. "the result is a fine improvisation that takes its elements out of free jazz as well as noise music with a punk attitude."" - Last.fm



"The music festival "Are you Free?" is a festival of particular genres. We are waiting for all the music lovers who were able to keep a kind of openness in their way of thinking and music taste, without taking the age into consideration. We would like to give publicity to improvisatory music genres, which help us to get rid of our ordinary music concepts and everyday ways of thinking. Thanks to improvisations you will be witnesses to creation of unique works of art. Moreover, besides the representatives of the best international jazz scene and other genres as well we could see and listen to performers from Slovakia. The NA'CONXYPAN PT's and Jazz Klub DS´s initiative is a unique struggle in the Slovak jazz scene, which hopefully gives a new impulse to Slovak jazz musicians, since avant-garde tendencies, like the free genre, are unfortunately pushed into the background. It must be borne in the mind that this will not have a positive effect only within this tendency, but the representatives of classical jazz scene can also learn a lot from it. The "Are you FREE?" project ensures more effective method of this studying, since those who are interested in can not only listen to the music but they can directly learn it from a famous contemporary musician within a workshop."-Are You Free Website (as translated by Google)
