Three personal projects of unique personalities, who are constantly searching for new ways to express themselves – evolving, discovering, improvising, experimenting.
ORQUESTRA DEL TIEMPO PERDIDO
Thollem is a perpetually traveling pianist, keyboardist, composer, improviser, singer-songwriter, activist, author and teacher. He has spent most of his life living on the road throughout North America and Europe. His work is ever-changing, evolving and responding to the times and his experiences, both as a soloist and in collaboration with hundreds of artists across idioms and disciplines. Thollem’s known internationally as an acoustic piano player in the free jazz and post-classical worlds, as the lead vocalist for the Italian agit-punk band Tsigoti and as an electronic keyboardist through a multitude of projects.
ORQUESTA DEL TIEMPO PERDIDO
Jeroen Kimman’s home recording constructions under the moniker Orquesta del Tiempo Perdido have gained international acclaim over the last years (‘a slippery ride, but a very good one’- THE WIRE).After a long break, his playful, complex, and rather WTF musical ramblings will finally be performed live again by a septet of some of Amsterdam’s finest creative players.

Meaningful numbers is the audio-visual performance by Giovanni Iacovella, drummer and improviser drifting between the worlds of improvised and electro-acoustic music.
The solo focuses on the use of acoustic drums and resonating objects as a tool to enhance the interaction between acoustic and digital sound.
As a result, the sonic landscapes that emerge vary from intricate polyrhythmic juxtaposition, to abstract drones and hyperkinetic noise, all of which find their order through improvisation and song-like forms.
The sonic gestures find a second layer of expression in the abstract live visuals that, through shapes, colours and light, seek a connection between sound and its visual representation.
