ROVO AND SYSTEM 7 Tickets
Phoenix Rising is the exciting and innovative rock/dance collaboration between Japanese psychedelic progressive jam-band ROVO and UK ambient techno pioneers System 7.
Phoenix Rising live is a combined show of Rovo and System 7 playing together, sometimes using the techno beats as the rhythmic basic and sometimes using the live drums, seamlessly morphing from one to the other - showcasing some of the most sophisticated blends of electronic beats and completely live playing ever produced, made possible by the skilled musicianship of eight players.
Fans of System 7's Steve Hillage can be assured that in the format of Phoenix Rising his masterful electric guitar style is fully unleashed, with extensive soloing and duets with the electric violin of Rovo's Yuji Katsui.
The full Phoenix Rising studio album is set for UK release on September 23rd 2013, featuring original collaborations from System 7 and ROVO. It also includes a new arrangement of Meeting of the Spirits by the Mahavishnu Orchestra – a perfect showcase for the album’s outstanding blend of guitar and electric violin.
As a pre-taste for the album, System 7 and Rovo release the Hinotori EP on June 3rd 2013.
