AN INTERGALACTIC NIGHT
9 October @ 20:30 – 23:30
Special edition of the Intergalactic Night; Illustrious evenings at the BIMHUIS café, with performances in all kinds of genres and disciplines. Tonight thrilling, uncut instruments: handcrafted inventions, installations, improvisations and traditional West-Asian instruments. Bar pianist this edition is the duo Nora Mulder/Koen Kapteijn with their self-made installation – the parp (piano/harp).
Rafaele Andrade is on a constant search towards new electro-acoustic sound and possibility. The Brazilian artist focuses on collaborative and multidisciplinary processes, from crafting and composing to printing and playing her own instruments, such as the interactive string-based instrument Knurl. With a socially engaged mindset, her artforms become the output of her dreams to transform and harmonize our collective being.

Hamraaz fuses a global and contemporary with a local and traditional sound. The moving concerts by the two multi-instrumentalists who met at the Codarts Conservatory center the air instrument duduk and percussive tanbour and tar, whilst they evocatively perform and evolve existing musical compositions resonating with their roots in Iran and Armenia.

Koen Boeijinga plays improvisational and repetitive forms of music that connect the ancient with the modern to find grounding and togetherness in a restless, digital world. With a deep interest regarding the primal nature of music, the BUI and MOA affiliate researches and makes his own instruments, resulting in an ever-growing collection of flutes, drums, percussion, and other objects.

Dianne Verdonk is a classically trained double bassist and cellist who makes electroacoustic instruments that can also be considered standalone art objects. Combining key components for her performance with unusual design, she came up with unique objects such as the singing-instrument Bellyhorn, the rhythmic pendulum Pulseyarn, and the composition-enhancing La Diantenne.

We have had bar pianists Ernst Glerum, Guus Janssen, and Marta Warelis in the past but tonight the machines will take over in the foyer. In the breaks you can expect sounds provided by the duo Nora Mulder and Koen Kaptijn, (called 7090) and their music installation, the parp: an automated piano-harp (parp).
