Ed Buckley A friend gave me the DVD for my b'day. I bought this only to point it out to all of you (and sort of thank Karbido as well). :-) 4 musicians gather round a specially made table, tuned and with a number of built-in instruments. In 4 sections it begins with Eastern influenced world music, then Austro/African world, on to a rock/metal sort of thing, and concluding with a very ambient section. Highly inventive and quite enjoyable. Try this. www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZ3qH7wECyc

about

Karbido’s The Table is a world-class musical project, an out-and-out instrumental avant-garde that proves that an unlimited imagination poses no limits to music.

A piece of furniture – a table – is transformed into a potent musical instrument capable of playing everything from ethereal percussion and jazz to heavy metal. Using strings, bows, coins and wine glasses as well as fists, Karbido produces an exciting, original and innovative performance.

The composition key elements of the performance stand for the four directions compass presented in the order:
EAST | SOUTH | WEST | NORTH

Each part has different sound characteristics, it has also different range of musical reference. Exotic, windy-steppe ethno and maximal sound reduction, that refers to the Zen culture, meet in the “East” with Polish folk song and traditional song from the central Poland. Dynamic rhythms of the “South” invokes the culture of the Dark Continent, South America and Antipodes. The “West” is an energetic collage of industrial motorics, film themes, and songs of modern entertainment. The “North” dissolves all the acoustics in transparent, sea ambience, drops repetition, grating sound of the wood and breathing occurrences.

"An extraordinary musical spectacle."
THE TIMES

"Superb!"
THE INDEPENDENT

"I promise you will never hear a version of The Stooges' "Now I Wanna Be Your Dog" quite like this one."
THE FINANCIAL TIMES

"Awesome, manic or witty. If it's difficult to imagine, that's because you'll never have seen or heard anything quite like it.
