WHALE OIL



Mind Bending Improv Avant Rock - Inner-Space + Outer-Time

Santiago Botero [Columbia] - electric bass + effects
Alfredo Genovesi [London] - electric guitar + effects
Gerri Jaeger [Austria] - drums

Debut of the new psychedelic improv rock trio formed by the free improvising electronic guitarist Alfredo Genovesi. Using an array of pedal effects, found objects, samplers and external sound sources, Alfredo constructs multi-layered soundscapes that enable him to fluctuate between diverse and colourful soundworlds. He is joined by the rockin' Brown Vs Brown drummer Gerri Jaeger and high grade Columbian bass player Santiago Botero. This music will melt your mind!

WRIKKEN



Ivo Bol - electronics
Joris van Perlo - electronics

Live soundtrack to Maya Deren's classic film "Ritual In Transfigured
Time" and "The House", a film by Jan Suschitzky

Wrikken is a project of Ivo Bol and Joris van Perlo, who have made music together since they were 15. Wrikken originated in the Dutch city of Groningen where they played in cult bands like Soom, Plan Kruutntoone, Wastewell and G.I. Magnetic Inflatable Carrot plane. In 1996 they composed music for strings, saxophone and electric guitar. After 1996 their music has become more and more electronic. The music of Wrikken is constructed during an ongoing process of redefining their own sound, based mostly on samples made from their own music. Influences are Minimal music, Coil, Beefheart, David Lynch. Wrikken collaborated with several theatremakers, filmmakers and visual artists. They have been touring in Germany, the USA and Holland. Wrikken will perform a live soundtrack that is composed for Maya Deren’s film “Ritual In Transfigured Time” (1945-46). Stichting Mixer released their debut single.

MARIJE NIE & MARTIJN GROOTENDORST



SoundFloor, tapdance and video: a TripTych on Seagulls
Walking thru time and treading frantic rhythms from wired surfaces

De SoundFloor is een electronische tapvloer waarmee de tapdanseres zelf haar geluiden kan besturen. Tapdanser Marije Nie droomt al jaren over dit electroaccoustische instrument. Het is een instrument waarmee Marije niet alleen haar eigen geluid kan manipuleren, maar dat ook een interactieve geluidsomgeving kan maken op basis van het tapgeluid. Deze incarnatie van de SoundFloor is ontwikkeld door studenten van de Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht en TU Eindhoven en is nu al een veelbelovende start op een avontuurlijke weg.
