Milford Graves Full Mantis

Jake Meginsky, Neil Young

The marvelous, mosaic-covered house of drummer/percussionist Milford Graves in South Jamaica, Queens (New York) is crammed with art: African masks, Egyptian statues and medical models. His beautiful garden is just as eclectic, full of flowers and plants from all different cultures. This ‘global garden’ reflects his inclusive philosophy. His ideas on rhythm and time signatures also relate everything to everything else, all based around the irregular beat of our heart.

In this evocative film, this spiritual drummer – who has played with greats including free jazz pioneer Albert Ayler – talks about his many sources of inspiration, all of which can be traced back to nature. Graves talks about our senses and his interest in the heartbeat, which he records and transforms into electronic music. He also talks about yara, the martial art he developed, based partly on African dance. Part of the film’s fascinating archive material is his performance in Japan, with Butoh dancer Tanaka Min, for an audience of highly enthusiastic autistic children.

The world premiere on Sat 27 Jan will be followed by a unique live performance by Milford Graves.

Muslimgauze DJ-Project (Haperende Worm)


vr 12 januari 2018 – za 13 januari 2018


Haperende Mens presents

Spider, Spit and Broken Bells

Traces Of The Sacred

Worm and V2_ Rotterdam, OCCII Amsterdam byrn jonesMuslimgauze DJ-Project

During our Festival we will have a very special Muslimgauze DJ-Project. We aim to collectively pay tribute to the great influential music project Muslimgauze created by British musician Bryn Jones (June 17, 1961 – January 14, 1999). A broad spectrum of DJ’s will play a 1-hour set with music of Muslimgauze as well as music which they think is inspired by his work. With these different sets we get a variety of interpretations on the vast body of work created by Bryn Jones.

Participants and Timetable:
Friday 12 January:19:00Bob Rusche (X-Rated – Concertzender Nederland)
20:00 – Guy Pinhas (Southern Lord Europe)
21:00 – DJ Liquid Soundclash
22:00 – Kevin Svartvit (the тide øf тhe εnd )
Saturday 13 January:

18:00 – DJ Empty Venue (Gonzo (circus)
19:00 – Pharoah Chromium
20:00 – Sascha Roth (Pantropical)
21:00 – Koen en Tess (Ex-Incubate)
22:00 – Sjoerd Stolk (OCCII Amsterdam/Occii Stu)

In de foyer van WORM Rotterdam

The music of Muslimgauze has played a pioneering role in the development of electronic music. By bringing together styles as diverse as industrial, ritual ambient, dance and techno as well as combining previously unheard sampling techniques, the use of ethnic sounds and unique electronic repetitions the music of Muslimgauze stands out through time.

Bryn Jones recorded so much material that new releases are still published to this day. His unique blends of electronic music with controversial Islamic and Middle-Eastern influences make Muslimgauze an indispensable subject during Spider, Spit and Broken Bells.

a Tribute to Han Bennink (BEYOND BENNINK)

Zaterdag 6 januari 2018

A tribute to Han Bennink

w/ Blue Lines (George Hadow/Michiel Scheen/Raoul van der Weide), Onno Govaert & John Dikeman Duo, Oscar Jan Hoogland en Nora Mulder & Rogier Smal Duo  + Han Bennink






Meer over de tentoonstelling Han Bennink:

Blue Lines brengt drie generaties improviserende musici samen: het trio bestaat uit George Hadow (drums), Michiel Scheen (piano) en Raoul van der Weide (bas, cello) dat samen in een onnavolgbare mix van swing, onderzoekende improv en nomadische akkoorden zijn rusteloze zoektocht voortzet naar nieuwe mogelijkheden van ensemblespel.

De sleutelfiguren uit de jongste generatie Amsterdamse improviserende jazzmuziek Onno Govaert (drummer en instant composer) en John Dikeman (saxofonist) mogen deze middag niet ontbreken met hun intense en explosieve muziek vol overgave gespeeld.

Geïnspireerd op o.a. Misha Mengelberg vertegenwoordigd pianist/componist Oscar Jan Hoogland (Amsterdam, 1983) de vierde generatie van geïmproviseerde muziek. Samen met Han Bennink vormt hij Bennink/Hoogland, maar deze middag speelt hij op zijn zelfgebouwde elektrisch klavichord, een klein klavierinstrument dat vooral in de 17de en 18de eeuw werd gebruikt.

Het duo Nora Mulder & Rogier Smal zoekt de grenzen van de vrije improvisatie en humor op met piano en drums. Een subtiele sonische zoektocht wordt afgewisseld met lawaaiige uitbarstingen van geluid waarbij beide instrumenten een gevecht lijken aan te gaan, waarna toch de inspiratie van het ICP-orkest en Willem Beuker Collectief weer doorschemert.

MiMa (WorM)

September MiMa,
welcoming the autumn but with summer still burning on our buns.
We have two amazing acts lined up for you:
Jooklo Duo & Riccardo Sinigaglia (IT)
doing electro acoustic research that resonates echoes of ancient rituals.
Duke S. (020)
with his quirky mix of synthetic exotica, sun ra-esque electro jazz and ambient with faux field recordings.
September 5th
upstairs at
Boomgaardsstr. 71
Doors 20:00 / Start 20:30
!! FREE show !!
More info below,
but first there is another announcement to make:
our new friend in town Herman
is setting up some nice shows as well,
September 8th During the opening of Theater Rotterdam at the Schouwburg, in the artist foyer,
you can come and listen to sounds of Red Brut, Eklin and enjoy the Geuze and Spookjesbar.
September 19th Theater Rotterdam at the Schouwburg, Kleine Zaal,
with performances of WIDT (pl), Das Ding (nl) and SONNDR (nl). fb
October 10th– Theater Rotterdam at the Schouwburg, Kleine Zaal,
with performances of Kraus (nz), Zoontoon (nl) and more tba.
The promised info:
Jooklo Duo & Riccardo Sinigaglia (IT)
The duo Jooklo (Virginia Genta and David Vanzan) and Riccardo Sinigaglia (founder of the legendary Futuro Antico and Correnti Magnetiche) met in November 2015 in Milan, at a studio session organised by Black Sweat Records. The collaboration that grew out of this meeting is an ever-evolving electro-acoustic research which (according to the participants) invokes “ancient rituals, deeply rooted in improvisation and abstract structures aiming to a complete fusion of several sound sources.” Sinigaglia and Jooklo utilise Farfisa organ, synthesizers, reeds, and percussion to create harmonious but often challenging results. Expect “old and new dreams of Italy’s finest psychedelia and “new shapes (in) the realm of mystic music.”
Duke S. (NL)
Duke S. is the project of Étienne Baudet. Baudet’s sound is a quirky mix of synthetic exotica, Sun Ra-esque electro jazz and ambient, laced with “faux field recordings”[sic]. The feeling is both futuristic and outdated, evoking ancient Egypt as well as adventures in outer space. At times the sound has something of Finnish composer Pekka Airaksinen. Live shows are accompanied by 8-bit visuals and of course cactuses.

which came first: the synth or the tape? ( ★ )

★ GOAT ★ YPY (Em Records) ★ PeeQuu ★ DJ Rancid Lunch ★

Dark sounds for dark times from avant-garde group Goat from Osaka
FFO: ZS, Battles en Nissenenmondai

GOAT (Osaka, JP)
Koshiro Hino / percussion, bass
Akihiko Ando / percussion, sax
Tomohisa Suzuki / percussion , drum
Takafumi Okada / percussion, drum

Goat, previously comprised of guitar, bass, drums and saxophone, create music unlike many rock bands. In their percussive songs, they mute the melodic instruments to reinforce the beat, and make frequent use of harmonics played outside the twelve-tone. After going through a reshape in early 2017 with a new lineup, they have moved on to build compositions that explore rhythmic aspect even further, centering on intertwining patterns of repetitive rhythms. So far, they have released two albums from the label HEADZ; their debut album “NEW GAMES” in 2013, and second album “Rhythm & Sound” in 2015.

YPY (Boredoms) is a solo project by an Osaka-based musician Koshiro Hino who also plays a central role in the bands Goat and Bonanzas. The compositions he produce for the bands are marked by the frequent use of muted sounds and overtones, while actively employing the sounds that are not part of the standard chromatic scale. Its primitive feel gets often referred to the current techno scene and was credited for achieving a new original style by elaborately synthesizing experimental and dance music.
His wide-ranging solo works consist a pinch of humor added on top of the musical style he has established in the bands. Today, he is acclaimed as one of the prime emerging talents in Japan, and has been appointed to support the acts of artists as Arto Lindsay, Shackleton, Cut Hands, SURGEON, and D/P/I.

An online Single (plays George Gerswin)

It’s seems forever ago when i was touring Japan with Nora Mulder, and i was listening to two tracks on a live SunRa recording pretty much all day long. Nora kinda explained to me they were both Gerschwin compositions from the early 1900’s. We decided to record a version of both tracks then, and it “only” took us two years to do that and release it as a postcard. We also have some of our supercool and talented friends playing on this and we proudly present the: “Nova Balancilo Orkestro Amsterdam” plays George Gerschwin postcard release.

BAJeenkomst (Buiten de Orde!)

23 april staat het Cobra Museum de hele dag in het teken van kunst en anarchisme!

23 Apr 2017


Drieëntwintig april staat het Cobra Museum de hele dag in het teken van kunst en anarchisme! Met ondermeer en onderandere: Almudena Rubio & Davide Cristiani, Beppe Costa, Rogier Small & David Birchall, Jan Bervoets en de Nederlandse premier van de documentaire ‘Ni Dieu Ni Maître’.

Naar aanleiding van de tentoonstelling Enrico Baj: Play as Protest wordt er op 23 april de BAJeenkomst gehouden. Een samenkomst van kunstenaars en anarchisten. In de tentoonstelling van Enrico Baj worden anarchistische rondleidingen gegeven, opruiende speeches en lezingen gehouden. Her en der oreren dichters en improviseren muzikanten. Documentaires geven inzicht in het Anarchisme.

De vraag is: Wat betekende het anarchisme voor de kunst in zijn algemeenheid, en het werk van Baj in het bijzonder en vise versa. Hoe kunnen kunst en anarchisme elkaar ondersteunen in het gezamenlijk streven naar een samenleving zonder hierarchieën, zonder onderdrukking en uitbuiting van mensen en dieren en zonder uitputting van het milieu.

De BAJeenkomst hoopt een inspiratie te zijn om antwoorden op deze vragen te vinden.

still uit Ni Dieu Ni Maître van Tancrède Ramonet

Kunstliefhebbers zullen luisteren naar speeches van onder meer Peter Storm van RavotR. Anarchisten zullen kijken naar kunst in een speciale anarchistische rondleiding door kunsthistoricus en anarchist Dick Gevers. In de filmzaal beleeft het eerste deel van het documentaire drieluik Ni Dieu Ni Maître van Tancrède Ramonet zijn Nederlandse premiere. Muziek zal onrecht direct invoelbaar maken. Zangeres Almudena Rubio zal haar befaamde anarcho-folk laten klinken met begeleiding van Davide Cristiani (o.a. speciaal voor deze gelegenheid zal de ‘balade van de dood van Pinelli’ worden vertolkt). Multi-instrumentalist en theatermaker Beppe Costa neemt zijn gitaar en loepmachine mee. Te pas en te onpas zal percussie/gitaar duo Rogier Small en David Birchall zich laten horen en als het even stil is… dan zal Jan Bervoets zijn surrealistische gedichten de ruimte in slingeren.

Almudena Rubio en Davide Cristiani (complete video beneden aan deze pagina)
