ZEA / Harald Austbø

Zea is a solo performance from Arnold de Boer (Amsterdam, NL) deploying guitar and sampler for an almighty bout of intense and high energy songs. Urgent lyrics over guitar, roughshod beats and grimy bass lines. Zea makes fat-free music with no words wasted; joyfully obstinate, wonderfully bonkers. For more than fifteen years Zea has been playing all over the world.
Harald Austbø is a jazz cellist. He is active in the Amsterdam jazz & improv scene, plays in several bands, acts and composes for music theater productions. He improvises exuberantly and with humor. Every now and then you are put into rest by a lyrical stroking moment, but a little later it goes completely loose again rhythmically and otherwise.

Andy Moor solo (with visuals)

Another band member of The Ex in the house today: guitarist Andy Moor. Moor’s own background is rooted in the post-punk Britain of the 1980s, but over the years he has collaborated with many musicians from varied backgrounds and disciplines. Like the other band members of the The Ex Andy Moor & his playing is characterized by versatility & openness.
