For the first time since February we're back at our familiar spot in Rotterdam Noord; the fine Kapelzaal of Klooster Oude Noorden. Tonight's triple bill of electro-acoustic delicacies features Alex and George's brilliant Able Noise, the slow build-up musique concrète gubbins of Mark Smith (aka the Sunshine Lounge), and Linus B' electronica feast.
This is a 'reservation only' show.Please send a PM to our facebook account (Vrooom or Sandwich Island) or contact: info[at]sandwich-island[dot]com.
Able Noise is an experimental baritone guitar and drum duo, based between The Hague and Athens. Through the use of voices, tapes and alternative methods of playing their instruments, the duo create a somewhat minimal but really captivating performance. Taken as a whole, the feel of their sound reminds us of Chicago post-rock stalwarts Gastr del Sol, and that is no mean feat.
┆THE SUNSHINE LOUNGE┆sct/nl
The Glasgow born, Dutch resident Mark Smith is a music maker, radio DJ, concert promoter, and Jerry Sadowitz fan. His solo-project Sunshine Lounge plows a furrow between relaxation and lime cordial, elephants and violence, green and polkadots, Penelope Keith and chaos. In his live sets, Mark uses home made instruments, electromagnetic chunder and acoustic gubbins.
Linus B is a producer, DJ and visual artist who finds his inspiration in the arbitrariness of daily life. Mending and bending recorded samples of the things around him, his music is an auditive feast, a celebration and happy estrangement of the everyday. There is room for tenderness, kitsch, and a bit of confusion.
This event is made possible with kind support of Popunie Rotterdam.
