Aether: Maze of Sound

Aether: Maze of Sound

Aether: Maze of Sound
Maze of Sound brings artists in the visual art and performance disciplines together with artists in the field of sound and music. The program begins with a tour through the studios and courtyard of Stichting B.a.d where the visitor will find new collaborations, installations and sounds taking place live. The program continues into the night with audio- visual compositions in the main hall with international acts. Expect digital media performance, pristine electronics, dense noise, tropical beats, deep bass, drums galore, a jungle of corners to lose yourself in plus a raging fire.

Doktor Schnitt
Doktor Schnitt is an infectiously danceable three-man formation starring bassist Bruno Ferro Xavier da Silva and an array of pedals, plus drummer Philipp Ernsting and percussionist Nique Quentin. With analogue drum and bass as their springboard, the three masterful gentlemen launch off into funk, electronica, jungle and ambient, all performed with a tight punk attitude.

Expect a trip from spacious ambient to experimental techno/idm. “At some point I realized I loved moving knobs and programming, more than playing with those white and black things (keys) on my synthesizers. Soon I bought my first modular synthesizer that started a never ending story. Then I met a guy called Jan who programmed self playing ‘patch noodles’ on the Clavia G2 modular. I become really passioned about self-generating patches that play stuff without any human or computer manipulation at all.”

Doron Sadja
Brooklyn (US) and Malmö (SE) based multimedia artist working primarily with multichannel spacialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments to create post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture.

Kevin Gallgher & Timmy van Zoelen
“The Sight in the Hand is the Work to be Done” is a multimedia performance of Kevin Gallagher in collaboration with Timmy van Zoelen. During the performance a story, set in the future, is told of a father and his daughter walking on a beach searching for treasures. Kevin Gallagher (US, 1986) and Timmy van Zoelen (NL, 1982) are Rotterdam based artists. They both received their MFA at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, respectively in 2013 and 2011. Next to their regular artistic practise they irregularly organise salon evenings in Café M’n Schoonmoeder’s under the name Blu Heron Social Club.

NOGOOD/SUPER are artists, cultural researchers, hoarders of funky fabulous things…AND WE ARE DJ’S. We have been around the dj-decks since 2004. Now the two of us are combining our taste for dirty bass lines and edgy ethnic styles.
We’re No Good, We’re Super, we are Nadine Stijns and Natasa Heydra.

Antje Guenther
Video Projections all night long. From the ongoing project COUNTER PROOF a first excerpt will be shown. It is questioning the influence of aesthetical impulses on theory set up / theory construction.
“Every snow crystal has an infinite beauty which is enhanced by knowledge that the investigator will, in all probability, never find another exactly alike.“ (W.A.Bentley, 1922)

De Schouwplaats

Niki van Strien + Henk Bakker
“Matter expresses itself in many ways, from the simple emission of physical information to the deliberate use of melody and rhythm. The universe itself may be viewed as a grand symphony of material expressivity.” Manuel DeLanda (from: Material Expressivity)
Basclarinetist Henk Bakker zal middels een live-improvisatie de bezoeker van Niki’s atelier in het “hier en nu” brengen zodat ze met de juiste spanning (of juist ontspanning) de minimale show kunnen ervaren van haar werk.
