Tearpalm

Tearpalm is a main musical vehicle of Marko Dabetić (often abbreviated as MMM), Belgrade-based writer, art historian and electronic musician.

Influenced by kraut/space rock sound of late sixties and early seventies, early British industrial and New York guitar noise of the eighties, it was formed in Niš, in 2007, as a one-man studio project.

While in this phase, Tearpalm released two full-length albums with pioneer Croatian indie label Slušaj najglasnije, and one transitional, download-only, release for Crime:Scene Records (formerly Dark:Scene Records) based in Novi Sad.

Tearpalms 2008. debut, "Prijatelj sa Duhovima Mesta", had a good run on KZSU's (official radio of Stanford University, http://kzsu.stanford.edu/) top ten list for classical, electronic & experimental albums, alongside current releases by Emeralds, Olafur Arnalds and Ivan Čkonjević. Album featured a bonus disc, containing Tearpalm's material remixed by fellow Serbian electronic artists and bands: Margita je mrtva, Lezet, Figurative Theatre, DeepArtMent and THIRD I.

Moving to Belgrade in 2009. saw Tearpalm's live incarnation, primarily as a trio consisting of MMM on computers, guitar, keybords and occasional vocals, Miloš Dabetić on bass, and Dimitrije Cvetković (also known as ambient/breakbeat act Plavo Tkivo) on keybords and various effect boxes. Since then, Tearpalm plays on almost regular basis in Belgrade's clubs and venues open to alternative sound, including Žica, 20/44, SKC LivingRoom, Underworld, UK Parobrod, Fili, etc.

2011. saw first gigs out of Belgrade, CK13 in Novi Sad and Dom Omladine Pančevo (latter under the wing of Novo Doba Festival). Also, Tearpalm's live edition, albeit open to ad hoc personal changes and spontaneous guest appearances, boiled down to a steady duo: MMM and Dimitrije.

Most recently, live shows incorporate video works by Belgrade-based visual artist Marina Rajić.

Tearpalm je nastao 2007. godine u Nišu.

Muzički alias Marka Dabetića, pisca i istoričara umetnosti, pod jakim uticajem nemačke eksperimentalne scene šezdesetih i sedamdesetih, ranog britanskog industriala i njujorškog gitarskog noise zvuka ranih osamdesetih, Tearpalm ostaje one-man projekat sve do kraja 2009, kada dobija i svoju live postavu, promenljivog sastava, u kojoj su najvažniji članovi basista/gitarista Miloš Dabetić i klavijaturista Dimitrije Cvetković(poznat i kao Plavo tkivo).

Kao jednočlani studijski projekat, Tearpalm ima dva objavljena albuma za pionirsku hrvatsku indie etiketu Slušaj najglasnije!, i jedno net-izdanje za novosadski Crime:Scene Records, koji promoviše tamni zvuk ex-Yu prostora. Prvi album, "Prijatelj sa Duhovima Mesta" iz 2008, proveo je nekoliko nedelja na top 10 listi za izvođače eskperimentalne elektronske muzike radija KZSU, radio stanice stenfordskog univerziteta. (http://kzsu.stanford.edu/).

Od 2009. preseljen u Beograd, Tearpalm u svojoj live postavi često svira po klubovima čija koncertna ponuda podrazumeva indie zvuk (Žica, 20/44, Fili, Underworld, SKC, itd.). 2011. Donosi i prve svirke van Beograda, CK13 (Novi Sad, sa projektom Lenhart Tapes), i Dom omladine u Pančevu (pod pokroviteljstvom festovala Novo Doba). Live postava se svodi na dvojac MMM i Dimitrije, iako ostaje otvorena za razne, planirane i ad hoc saradnje. Takođe, video radovi Marine Rajić postaju redovan deo Tearpalm nastupa.
