ANTOINE CHESSEX (sax) / GEORGE HADOW & ONNO GOVAERT- (drummers) / JASPER STADHOUDERS & GUEST / DJ FRANK KOBEEN
A night with improvised music and noise played by the most cutting edge musicians around.
The music of Swiss composer, saxophonist and sound artist Antoine Chessex straddles the worlds of noise, free jazz, and modern classical composition. Inspired by the mathematics of physical spaces, Chessex’s compositions and improvisations often incorporate heavy electroacoustic manipulations, guitar pedals and layers of sound so dense as to become deafening fields of white noise. In other instances, quiet tonal clusters, microtones and drones are used to construct uneasy, hypnotic states in which texture and held tones take precedence over more traditional elements of melody, harmony, and rhythm.
George Louis Hadow: drums, Ada Rave: sax
We had scheduled a drummer’s duet of George with Onno Govaert, but very unfortunately Onno cut his finger and can’t play for a couple of days. Don’t worry, he’ll heal fast! AND I’m very happy that Ada Rave (Argentina) will play with George!
Kenzo Kusuda: dance, Jasper Stadhouders: guitar
Kenzo (JP) and Jasper’s debut as a duet.

On the 5th of May we collaborate with the Doek Festival on a night in the Vondelbunker. In 2012 we celebrated a succesfull first edition with around 90 acts and performances over 4 locations. The festival concentrates on alternative and independent music culture with noise, indie rock, psychedelia, avant-garde, bass music, improv jazz and underground dance. Also included within the program are documentaries, workshops, art and performances. This second edition is realized thanks to the dedication and contributions from 25 organizations, collectives and curators.
