EYSERMANS / MALFLIET (Raphael Malfliet / Ann Eysermans)
DOUBLE THE DOUBLE BASS VII (Joëlle Léandre / Sebastian Gramss)
     Belgian exclusive

In the duo of Ann Eysermans and Raphael Malfliet two instruments, the viola da gamba and the bass guitar, which possess a certain connotation and little combinatorial experience are put face-to-face. They use less common playing techniques and sounds and thus question the traditional musical parameters such as form, sound and pitch in an improvised setting. Furthermore, during this communication both players try to investigate their psychological state and try to break through certain behavioral patterns.

Joëlle Léandre, one of the most powerful voices of international contemporary and improvisation scene on tour with the exceptional Cologne bassist and ECHO bass winner Sebastian Gramss. Double The Double Bass... The format of the concerts is simple and proven: pure double bass – solos and duos in spontaneous succession.

VLEK (Edward Capel / Jeroen Doomernik / Hans Sparla / Jacq Palinckx / Bart van Dongen / Bert Palinckx / Pascal Vermeer)
     new release

Rudy Trouvé made the difference at the time with dEUS and Dead Man Ray and has been the driving force behind the Heaven Hotel label for 20 years. He describes himself as a do-it-yourselfer and as a bad guitarist and sound fetishist.
His sound is recognizable from thousands and makes Trouvé one of the most respected artists on the Belgian music scene.

VLEK is a collective of musicians with their roots in improvised music, jazz and alternative rock music. You can expect a melting pot of dance beats, catchy melodies, dirty rock riffs, driven solos, Africana, intimate miniatures, cinematic trips and so much more. VLEK is the house band of the Tilburg music venue Paradox.

6 march 2018: an evening of drums and percussion
ORIOL ROCA TRIO (Oriol Roca / Manolo Cabras / Giovanni Di Domenico)
     new release

Ingar Zach is part of a contingent of Norwegian avant-garde jazz musicians who organized themselves a scene in the mid- to late-'90s. A free jazz drummer with a propensity to slip effortlessly into something more non-idiomatic, Zach displays a good balance between industriousness and subtlety, much like countryman Paal Nilssen-Love.

The Barcelona percussionist Oriol Roca has performed alongside some of the best improvisers and composers of creative music in Catalonia, as well as collaborating with figures like the Italian Paolo Angeli and Norwegian Jan Bang. Now he is débuting as leader and composer with music of high emotional intensity, sometimes serene and at others volcanic, where north is always the melody.

OUT OF THE BLUE (Paul Van Gysegem / Kim Van den Brempt)
PLATFORM (Xavier Charles / Katrine Schiøtt / Jan Martin Gismervik / Jonas Cambien)
     Belgian exclusive + new release

Artist Paul Van Gysegem stood at the cradle of the experimental free jazz of the seventies. As a pianist, Kim Van den Brempt is a passionate defender of the contemporary repertoire. Together they map out a route in which American minimalism is the starting point of an exciting musical jousting with space for improvisation, composition and dialogue. When two worlds meet each other, numerous possibilities arise.

Platform houses young Belgian talent Jonas Cambien (quite unknown to the public yet due to living in Scandinavia). The quartet plays acoustic, improvised music exploring slowly changing textures, elastic sonic sculptures and meditative drones. Small ideas get all the time and space they need to develop. Using prepared piano, minimalistic percussion, extended techniques on clarinet and cello, Platform creates abstract and cinematic sheets of sound. They present their latest work released on the Portuguese Cleanfeed label.
