Description

THE BONK | Haint Blues

Thursday 19th April | Ormond Studios, 4 Ormond Quay Lower.
Doors 8.00, performance 8.30, event concludes 9.15pm.

As part of the artist-led event series Thinking About Blue Almonds, Ormond Studios has invited musical ensemble THE BONK to perform Haint Blues.

The blues is an infinite loop. As a structure, it limits the linear progression of time: an outward movement is always complimented and countermanded by a necessary inflection point, a turnaround.

The blues is the blues, I really believe... and it gives rise to an alternate time-space (by means of a portal that leads nearer away, into the lining of things).

At this particular time-place, thoughts are stuttered and syncopated and lead back to themselves; temporal units (pronounced under the name 'beats') contract and/or expand as the moment requires. There is nowhere to go and it is this apparent limitation that uncloses the portal.

THE BONK is a broad-based musical project headed by Waterford songwriter and improviser Phil Christie (O Emperor). Gathering influences from 60’s garage, jazz and experimental pop, the band's arrangements bring recursive rhythms and improvised melodies together in loose minimalist song forms.
