Tony Buck | Drums
Olivier DiPlacido | Guitar
Tony Buck (born 1962 in Sydney) is a drummer and percussionist. He graduated from the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music (now Sydney Conservatorium of Music), becoming involved in the Australian jazz scene.
Buck is a founding member of The Necks with Chris Abrahams and Lloyd Swanton since 1987. He is leader of Peril, who he formed in Japan with Otomo Yoshihide and Kato Hideki, and astroPeril. He also formed the short lived L’Beato in the early 1990s, an industrial-oriented outfit reminiscent of Tackhead, which released one EP “The Piston Song”.
In the early nineties Buck moved from Australia to Amsterdam and later moved to Berlin, where he currently lives.
He formed the band Glacial with Lee Ranaldo and David Watson.
Projekt Transmit was released in 2009, featuring 8 original songs written by Buck and one cover of Masters of War by Bob Dylan. A band was formed around this album consisting of Magda Mayas on keyboards, James Welburn on bass, Brendan Dougherty on drumset and Buck on guitar, vocals, drumset and percussion.
Olivier Di Placido is a self-taught musician who performs on electric guitar. His approach is mainly focused on the manipulation and the sonic possibilities of each elements of the guitar as a sound source (Unscrewed neck, unfixed pickup, broken strings or not, electricity and short circuit, frets, whammy bar, magnets…). He’s ausculting and trashing them all by mooving the pickup around the instrument.
He develops a world of tension and rupture with an interest for non narrative structure and spontaneous form.
During the past few years, he has collaborated and played on concert with many musicien as well as solo performance in Germany, France, Switzerland, Poland, Sweeden and Italy.
