Headwar (FR)
Headwar is noise punk violence from Amiens. For everyone who’s a fan of the French so-called weird punk scene around bands like A.H. Kraken, The Anals, The Normals,… this band brings some genuine brain terrorism.

MAD JAZZ NOISE – GIG – Vondelbunker

Wednesday 11 June 22:00, Vondelbunker, Vondelpark 8, Amsterdam
Inside the Vondelparkbrug (tram lines 3 and 12 run over it)
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.
Spinning records before, in between and after the sets. Frank Kobeen a.k.a. Frank Vis a.k.a. Frank Schouten is the mastermind behind the SOTU Festival…
