location: Pink Pank – Delftsestraat 9, Rotterdam
doors: 21:00 end: 23:55 / entrance: 7
Vrooom #69 offers stark contrast between the savage drum excorcism of Kiyasu Ryosuke (of Fushitsusha / Sete Star Sept fame) and the sophisticated sound construct of instrument builder Andreas Oskar Hirsch. Additionally, we have the Dutch electronica veterans Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk, who experiment with both image and sound using a self-developed range of electronics. Your DJ of the night: Nikola Vidaković.
Ryosuke Kiyasu has been playing drums in a variety of bands since 1995. In the world of extreme hardcore punk and grindcore he is mainly known as the drummer of Sete Star Sept, but was also involved with the Canadian powerviolence outfit The Endless Blockade. In the experimental music scene he is renowned for his work with the legendary Japanese avant-rock group Fushitsusha, which also features Keiji Haino. Kiyasu's solo drum performances are visceral, hairy, and split audiences.
┆ANDREAS OSKAR HIRSCH┆de
Andreas Hirsch is a Cologne-based musician, visual artist and inventor of electroacoustic instruments. He performs with the self-built 'Electric Palm Leaf' or the 'Carbophone'. The latter can be described as a kind of complex "super" kalimba. Both lend themselves for warm downbeat rhythms and odd tonalities. Hirsch creates a space somewhere between playful leftfield electronics and freestyle gamelan. Together with Patricia Koellges he runs Makiphon - a label for experimental music which also features his latest album 'Early Carbophonics'.

The Dutch multimedia duo Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk explore the possibilities of analogue and digital equipment commonly used to generate pictures by feeding them something different than just "proper" video signals. With their 'Synchronator' project they explore the very technical structure of the hardware, and generate pictures that expose and reflect the true nature of machines behind the commonly known TV image. The artists also experiment with the visual representation of sound by direct implementation of audio signal to special, self-made picture generating systems.
