Happy New Year! Welcome the lastest edition of the 1k Newsletter with lots of exciting concerts, new releases, and original artwork for your eyes and ears!





PAKT: Percy Jones, Alex Skolnick, Kenny Grohowski, Tim Motzer - US Tour Dates in February/March 2023

It would be impossible to find a label that adequately defines the collective quartet PAKT, whose members combine experience in jazz, progressive rock, metal, experimental, and noise music – often overlapping, never constrictive. The band brings together four extraordinary musicians: bassist Percy Jones (Brand X, Brian Eno, David Sylvian, Suzanne Vega), guitarist Alex Skolnick (Testament, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), drummer Kenny Grohowski (John Zorn, Secret Chiefs 3, Imperial Triumphant), and guitarist Tim Motzer (Bandit65, Jaki Liebezeit, David Sylvian, Ursula Rucker, Jamaaladeen Tacuma). PAKT recalls the fearless attitude and daring approach that originally defined progressive music: where the magic of the moment always triumphs over preconception. Their blistering improvisations serve as a reminder to aficionados of what initially drew them to this most creative, visionary of musics. Not to be missed!

Tim Motzer - ditties & deities (1k063)

"I am excited to share this new album with you to start the year. From my retreats to the countryside, this album represents a collection of introspective musings on a few acoustic stringed instruments captured on these intimate off-the-cuff lo-fi recordings. With the addition of my field recordings I think it may give the listener a feeling for this beautifully resonating place with some of the natural and sacred sounds around it.

I explored many tunings on my acoustic guitars and ukes which led me to finding melodies, chords, and musical sequences that dropped in from the ether. What is contained here, one might say, is a musical diary from those magical moments. I hope you will enjoy it.

As always I appreciate your support, and feel free to share any reflections this music inspires. Wishing you a peaceful new year." - tim motzer
