30 september I will be doing a special gig with french saxophonist and electronic musician Etienne Jaumet at the at the beautiful Théâtre du Châteletin Paris were we will pay hommage to the great Manu Dibango. This is part of the Variations festival were artists play songs inspired by influential legendary composers/musicians with a special geographed FX art lighting show by Paf Atelier. Others that will be hommaged on that day by various other artists are Ghada Al-Samman, Domenico Scarlatti and Terry Riley!!! This will also be broadcasted by the FRANCE TV station. Tickets are 20 euros starts at 20h.
“Cet événement intégralement filmé présentera quatre duos inédits, rassemblant des producteurs et productrices de musiques électroniques et des instrumentistes autour de répertoires de musiques savantes et populaires.”
Two “new” tapes on my Nightwind Records label – cassettetape versions of 2020’s SMACKOS – EDEN IN A SEA OF MISERY and 2016’s UFOCUS GUIDANCE FOR THE PUZZLED. Available as a 2-tape-pack only, for 25 euros comes with the usual postcards and stickers!
I had copied these tapes already in 2015 and 2016 but they never went in distribution. Thus they had been ‘fermenting’ for almost 6 years in my cellar dungeon in Scheveningen Holland. Its magnetic particles becoming even more complex and earthy, giving the sound tertiary aromas and deep flavours. The reason for the tapes rather long postponed released was that the computer with the tape inlay artwork stopped working in 2016 and I forgot about it and found them again and made some new tape inlay artwork…blaaaaahhhhhhh very exciting story ;p
Some pix shot by Jimi Hellinga of yesterdays performance at the Herz auditorium in Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht Holland, lots of thanks to the audience and crew, it was a lot of fun 🙂
Sound checking across the universe, the Herz auditorium is a beautifull place
I made a background video with a lot of trains ridiing through dreamy coastal towns
Instruments used at this performance: 2x Polyend Trackers, Doepfer Modular (just used for an 18db Filter to put one of the channels of the Tracker through), Korg Microstation Synthesizer, Oberheim OB6 Synthesizer, Yamaha Reface DX and CS synthesizers. Moog Moogerfooger Low pass filtter (to put the other channel of the polyend tracker through), Mooer Shimmerverb Pro, Electro Harmonix Canyon Delay pedal. HEMA calculator, Soundcraft Signature Edition Mixer. The laptop on the side was used for playing the video on the background
Legowelt Ambient Concert Vredenburg Utrecht 30 July
Friday 30 July I will play 3 live ambient space concerts at the Tivoli Vredenburg at their Walk the Line Electronic event in Utrecht Holland. The audience will do a 2 hour tour between the different concert halls/spaces of the Vredenburg building were me and 3 other artists will be performing. Each individual show is 20 minutes. On the line up are Alberta Balsam, Phasing Waves, Ultrastation and me. SOLD OUT Tickets are 17.50 euros and can be ordered here
Update in light of new Corona measures in Holland: As this is a concert with anti Corona measures (50 people max per concert/tour, 1.5 meters distance etc.) and it is in a theatre/concert hall with seats it seems it will go on as planned.
