Six percussionists and a robot in a percussion salvo

Each technological advance extends human capabilities, but is also, simultaneously, an amputation. In their new works for percussion and electronics, Wim Henderickx and Serge Verstockt play with this duality. From a gentle but unsettling rustling in a pitch dark concert hall, to ecstatic drum 'n' bass and breathtaking sound fields: in three short concerts percussion and electronic instruments play the leading role. Music that is bound to grab you by the throat.
