YOU MOVE, I MOVE, WE MEET? - Peter Jacquemyn + 2 dansers Geraldo Si (BR) & Sofia Kakouri (GR)
AZURE MORTAL - Dirk Swartenbroekx (DJ Buscemi), Rodrigo Fuentealba Palavacino, Peter Verdonck, Ernst Löw

Peter Jacquemyn moves easily between the visual arts and music. As a sculptor he assaults tree trunks with axe and chainsaw. His concerts are just as spectacular: with unbridled energy he lovingly wrestles his double bass. But he has also a particular love for improvisation of the body... for danse... For this encounter he invites 2 interesting dansers. Geraldo si Loreiro stands for art of movement. The Brazilian dancer was solo dancer for years at the renowned ensemble of Pina Bausch in Wuppertal. Sofia Kakouri has been focusing on movement research exploring different ways and techniques of creative and physical expression.

Azure Mortal is the new vehicle with which Dirk Swartenbroekx (Buscemi, Radical Slave) releases electronic audio experiments: dark ambient and deep drones... dogs hear even more details!) It's inspired by acts like Nurse With Wound, Throbbing Gristle, Ornette Coleman , Steve Reich and Five or Six. Musicians from Belgians jazz, rock and improvisation scene complement the electronic sound with extra colors.

DUO POUR 454 CHORDES - Pak Yan Lau (HK/BE) , Lionel Malric (FR)    release tour
AVA MENDOZA 'UNNATURAL WAYS' (US) - Ava Mendoza, Tim Dahl, Sam Ospovat   exclusive for Belgium

Lionel Malric is curious. This « vilain défaut » is constantly taking him into the countless corners of this vast sound territory more commonly known as Music. Pak Yan Lau is part of the new Brussels underground crowd. Taking the extraordinary out of the ordinary and creating little sound mosaics in a minimal, poetic way, while exploring the vast spectrum of sonar possibilities is the best way to describe her path. As interesting musicians do, they stuck 2 grand piano's in 2014 together in a room, prepared them and... it became a working duo.

Unnatural Ways is a three piece American band formed in 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Ava Mendoza. The group calls Brooklyn, NY home, where it plays many local shows each year. Over their years of playing together the group has developed a deeply personal sound; raw, heavy and never far from an absurd nervous breakdown. Drawing from their backgrounds in noise rock, free jazz, and metal the players push the boundaries of their own vocabularies and of the written music to put on powerful and unpredictable live shows. Consistent lyrical themes include: political paranoia, inclusion/exclusion, alter egos and alternate realities. A funny and bluntly honest celebration of the best and worst of the modern American landscape. Ava has been featured as one of Guitar World's "10 Female Guitarists You Should Know"

6 december 2018:
DIRIGO RATAPLAN (US) - Ellery Eskelin, Dave Ballou, Michael Formanek, Devin Gray
YELEMANI TRIO - Moussa Dembélé (BF), Mathias Van de Wiele, Giovanni Barcella

Drummer-Composer Devin Gray reconvenes his Dirigo Rataplan band of master musicians from New York for follow-up to their acclaimed first album. Dirigo Rataplan II showcases a striking set of original Gray compositions featuring saxophonist Ellery Eskelin, bassist Michael Formanek and trumpeter Dave Ballou. The new work brims with more earworm melody, richly implied harmony and a loose-limbed sense of rhythm as something physical and flowing – as blood, as breath. Fans of jazz from Ornette Coleman and Henry Threadgill to Dave Holland and Craig Taborn will dig this organic, engrossing mix of composition and improvisation, structure and freedom, atmosphere and dynamism.

Yelemani Trio (Burkinese for "change") came into being in March 2014 when Moussa, Mathias & Giovanni decided to form a group from a common love for African and improvised music. Their music draws from various Burkinese traditions, but also from Jazz, impro, rock, psychedelica and electronic music, resulting an exotic sound adventure where dialogue, creation and positive energy lay central ...
