SLUMBERLAND & SAINKHO NAMTCHYLAK
Jochem Baelus a.k.a. Slumberland constructed a new sound installation in the past year. He started from the characteristics and possibilities of the human voice and how to translate this to his modified and mechanical instruments. With these instruments he will enter into dialogue with the Tuvan voice artist Sainkho Namtchylak. She mastered the technique of throat singing or overtone singing before she started experimenting with other vocal techniques. A unique combination of artists that will be heard together for the first time.
PAK YAN LAU - BAKUNAWA
Belgian composer and multi-instrumentalist Pak Yan Lau presents her new project Bakunawa, an ensemble work for five musicians. Expect a full stage with toy pianos, metal pipes, harp, percussion and electronics. The compositions themselves are inspired by Asian ritual music (such as gamelan), ambient and minimal music - think Philip Glass and Eliane Radigue. Fact: Bakunawa is a snake-like dragon from the Philippines. To lull her to sleep, people play loudly on pots and pans to scare her away.
