The European underground shakes and simmers with new sounds. As a result, this edition of An Interplanetary Night presents a range of sonic daredevils from, among others, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Brussels. An explosion of unclassifiable bands and musicians under the supervision of Space is the Place, that regularly infiltrates the Bimhuis.
From noise punk to improv jazz: Farida Amadou has mastered it all. The bass guitarist from Liège has conquered punk venues and festivals with the band Cocaine Piss, which recorded an album in Steve Albini’s studio. As an improvisor she has collaborated with, among others Linda Sharrock, Ken Vandermark, Thurston Moore, and Peter Brötzmann.

DRAMM – LA BERGE -DRAMM
‘The 21st century von Trapp family’ is an appropriate nickname for their ensemble: composer and guitarist David Dramm, composer and flautist Anne La Berge, and composer and violinist (and their daughter) Diamanda La Berge Dramm. On the album Modern Genetics they combine original compositions with works by, among others, Charles Ives, and covers by The Velvet Underground and Burt Bacharach. An impossible, rousing mix of punk, country, spoken word and electro.

From Sub-Saharan Africa to Cuba and South-America, and from musical genres such as salsa, rumba, son, reggae and dancehall: it’s all based on the clave, the rhythmic pattern that ties a whole world of music together. Uruguayan musician Miguel Petruccelli invites a band that shares a love for the clave, to make your heart beat to its rhythm. A festive and danceable rhythm!
