- Free admission with a ticket for Saturday 09.04.2016
Karen Willems, frontwoman of Inwolves, former drummer of Yuko, Zita Swoon Group and 1,001 other projects, is one of the most inventive musicians of her generation. During MORE MUSIC! she’ll be entering into dialogues with four artists, from diverse musical backgrounds, for three memorable improv sessions that will once again highlight her multifaceted talent.
Dialogue # 1: Karen Willems - Benjamin Glorieux (18.00)
Cellist-composer Benjamin Glorieux, a master of both centuries-old and contemporary classical music, has worked with renowned jazz musicians and for various theatre productions. A unique set with the 21 bronze carillon bells of the Concertgebouw’s roof terrace playing a leading role.
Dialogue # 2: Karen Willems - CHVE (Amenra) (19.20)
As CHVE, Colin H. Van Eeckhout, vocal powerhouse of the intensely-heavy collective Amenra, bares his soul, with the help of folk, drone and his intriguing voice.
Dialogue # 3: Karen Willems - Cycle (22.00)
A dialogue in which Willems’ drumming techniques, dynamism, nuance and abstraction are the perfect foil for minimalist Dirk Serries’ abstract and interactive guitar underpinning and Martina Verhoeven’s fascinating approach to the double bass.
A unique cross-fertilization of free jazz, minimalism and avant-garde, built with noise, silence, repetition, atmosphere and dynamics.
