To celebrate the remastered release of his classic 1975 album Metal Machine Music on 5.1 Surround Sound, double vinyl, Blu Ray, and DVD Audio, Lou Reed will be joined by saxophonist/composer Ulrich Krieger and Sarth Calhoun for a string of performances of improvised music and soundscapes, specifically, “A Night of Deep Noise.”
According to a press release, the 9 European tour dates “will feature no songs and no vocals. The trio will utilise guitars, saxophones, continuum, plus an array of electronic treatments that will venture into deep acoustic space.”
The group (dubbed the Metal Machine Trio or MM3) has actually performed before in LA in 2008, but now Reed has regrouped with Krieger, whom he met at the premiere of the Zeitkratzer Orchestra’s Krieger-transribed/arranged version of the original Metal Machine Music.
