———- 8< ----------- 8< ----------- ■ ALEX ZHANG HUNGTAI ■ https://alexzhanghungtai.bandcamp.com/ Since retiring his project Dirty Beaches, Zhang has been focusing on explorations of improvised music, free jazz, and his new role as a composer of soundtracks for film. His latest musical output predominantly works with saxophone, synthesizers, percussion, and piano, furthering his research on ritualistic music of liminality. Solo output aside, he is also a member of an experimental trio with Portuguese musicians David Maranha and Gabriel Ferrandini, based in Lisbon. Zhang currently lives in Los Angeles and is also working as an actor in independent films. ■ DOLPHIN MIDWIVES ■ https://www.dolphinmidwives.us/about Sage Elaine Fisher is an American composer, performer, and sound artist based in Portland, Oregon. She is perhaps best known for her performance project Dolphin Midwives which abstracts the harp, voice, and percussion using electronics, extended techniques and ritual processes. She explores themes of empathy, natural cycles, vulnerability, transformation and technology through social experiment, meditation, psychoacoustics, and magic. https://www.facebook.com/events/378915765986298/

Formed in 1995 by Makoto Kawabata at the same time as the Acid Mothers Temple Soul Collective. The group
released its debut album in 1997 on PSF Records (Japan), and it was selected as one of the year’ best albums in
the The Wire magazine (UK). In 1998 the group played their first tours of the US and Europe. Since then the group has released a huge number of albums on labels from many different countries. As of 2017, the group has
released around 80 albums. Every year since 1998, they have toured extensively in the US and Europe, and more
recently have started performing around Asia and in Japan too. The group has performed in collaboration with many musicians including psychedelic originators Gong and Guru Guru, Simeon (Silver Apples), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), and the Occitanian trad sinder Rosina de Peira. Japanese collaborators have included Afrirampo, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Maso Yamazaki (Masonna), Seiichi Yamamoto (Boredoms), Jun Kuriyama (The Ox), and many others.
To begin with the group had a floating line-up with contributions from many members of the AMT Soul Collective. But as tours became more frequent, the group began to coalesce around a core touring line-up. Other bands were created with Acid Mothers Temple as part of their name (AMT The Cosmic Inferno, AMT SWR, AMT The Space Paranoid, Acid Mothers Gong, Acid Mothers Guru Guru, etc.), but AMT & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. has continued to function as the mothership and main lineage for all our activities.
In 2016, 21 years since the groups founding, there was a major shift in the line-up and & next Generation was
added to the name. We now view the first 20 years as chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page to start chapter two. The current touring line-up is: Makoto Kawabata (the sole original member), Hiroshi Higashi, Mitsuko☆Tabata, Nani Satoshima, and Wolf.
