Rotterdam’s most productive double bassman Gonçalo Almeida teams up with Belgium’s Peter Jacquemyn for an exploration of the bottom ends. Peter moves beautifully between visual arts and music. As a sculptor he assaults tree trunks with axe and chainsaw, and his concerts are a sonic match: with unbridled energy he wrestles his double bass using bows, soda cans, plastic bags, crumpled paper, mutes, horns, retuned strings… All of this ranges Peter Jacquemyn among Belgium’s most interesting improvisers.
Rotterdam based visual artist whose live art is made manifest in different ways. As a solo performer, she has run through a large stack of copy paper, tossing it into the air, or used her breath to blow dry a piece of tissue paper. For Trinks performance art sometimes shares characteristics with the musical score. In other live actions she has solicited audience involvement. She once emptied the bag of an audience member by placing the items carefully onto the floor of a gallery space in Brazil. Trinks organizes Performance Art Event (PAE) in Rotterdam and works in collaboration with the improvisation troupe, TRICKSTER.
? DJ SAJJRA (pe)
DJ Sajjra, Co-founder of the Aloardi collective from Lima / Peru, will play a crossbreed of roughed up, processed Andean folk, Peruvian chicha cumbia, bits of new/no wave, post-apocalyptic pop, basically all kinds of obscure but very very tasteful South American stuff from the sixties til now. This stuff will surely get you going one way or another!
