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. http://www.soundimplant.com/achessex.html http://m.soundcloud.com/antoine-chessex http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KPtSvEAChxA
DJ FRANK KOBEEN
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… https://soundcloud.com/hakkitakki
The SOTU (Sounds Of The Underground) is a five day festival in Amsterdam, which is happening 5, 9, 10, 11, 12 May 2013 in a collaboration between venues OCCII, OT301 and Vondelbunker. 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.
In the Vondelpark, under the bridge, the last fundraiser for SOTU Festival (Sounds OF The Underground) With local knob twisters and dj’s, and a band raising money for Amsterdam’s biggest DIT festival, next month.
Our last venue, The Bunker at the NDSM canceled the night. Because “local goverment” did not agree with the content of the night, FUCK THAT!!!! It is censorship on cultural activities, FUCK THAT!!!! I called the people from “Op De Valreep” and told them the story. They where so kind to give us a space to do this night. Come all over to the Op De Valreep for our Noise Demo! It is going to be a great night.
With: Seal of Quality, 8bit-rock act from France, Our international guest from Indonesia play amazing noiserock in there own style and Dj Urine Trio “Gomorrah” will improvise crazy rolling weirdness. tunes from DJ’s Charlie Lownoise and Dr. Snoodaard. Frankie Vis and Boris Scorpio in the Spaghetti Flight will play modulair noise disco.
Seal of Quality (FR)
I started making music under the name seal of quality in late 2006. The tracks I make are some kind of ode to the mighty god Vocoder I dedicated my life to. My plan is to conquer the known universe with sharpened harmonies and deadly rhythms – in a nice way.” http://www.seal-of-quality.net/
The legendary absurdist band/music collective “Wevie Stonder” is coming to Amsterdam and SOTU is hosting the night. Get ready for a crazy show with ground rolling, flying fish, butt artwork/plugs, tango dancing and much more weirdness.
Irresistibly wonky sonic surrealism from the sources of the collective unconscious. Public participation, movies, wigs and grouphugs are sometimes part of the set. Erratic “left field” electronics, with a deeper and stranger plundering of the anarchist tradition of inspired madness with bizarre pieces of musical kitsch. Musical clichés and chaotic soundscapes are welded together and supported by toy pianos and broken trombones and rubber bands.
“This is exactly the sort of underground “left field” company that keeps me going in times of pop shite overload” (Rob Da Bank BBC Radio 1. )
