    Pitch, timbre, texture, volume, duration and form; These are the secret ingredients to most compositions. The question remains however; Is there also room for something extra? And what could that extra element be? Today we will focus on the concept of velocity by showcasing concerts by musicians working with both speed and movement in their compositions and performances!

    The event is comprised of the following elements:

    Bismuth is a two-man formation, made up of experimental instrument builder Yuri Landman and multi-instrumentalist Arnold van de Velde (ex-Feverdream). Together they play a space-filling amount of self-built instruments made of wood, steel, strings, motors and electronics. This colorful collection of instruments leads to a rhythmic amalgamation of experimental noise rock, dance and gamelan.

    good cop / naughty cop make instant electronic compositions with self-programmed software and self-made controllers. They aim for a physical approach towards electronic music (and in particular realtime synthesis) by using objects such as bicycles, radios, FM transmitters and little solar cell synths in their performances. Their music – sometimes described as ‘improvised noise ambient’ – is influenced by the music and ideas of artists like John Cage, Tim Hecker, John Zorn and Captain Beefheart. Current members are composer/sound artist Sjoerd Leijten and ambient producer/pianist Patrick Bossink aka. Arpatle.
