The 4th Vrooom event; in which Phil Minton and Audrey Chen plumb into the depths of their very own bodily instruments, Oto.3 will be plotting their own delicate musical plan, and act number three (whose name we are not to reveal for an element of super suspense) will be just as interesting as the aforementioned. Apart from this, as always there will be nice music and drinks before and after the Live performances.
De vierde editie van Vrooom alweer, ditmaal met drie Live acts; het improv/gecomponeerd en door Indiase muziek geïnspireerde trio Oto.3, het zonderlinge zang/stemkunst duo Audrey Chen & Phil Minton en een sensationele mystery guest waarvan de naam slechts op de avond zelf bekend gemaakt gaat worden. Voorts is er fijne muziek en drankjes tussen de bedrijven door.
AUDREY CHEN (cn-us) & PHIL MINTON (uk)
With primary focus on the interplay between the uttered sounds of the mouth and vocal chords, Minton and Chen plumb the depths of their most inherent and bodily instruments. Their improvisations are fearless, fragile, hungry, passionate, riotous, ululating and animalistic, yet are also in all respects, human. They express, pronounce and intensely articulate (in their fashion) the many nuanced shades of their individual and collaborative conditions. Their album, 'By the Stream' was released by Sub Rosa earlier this year.
The music of OTO.3 is based on sound – rather than rhythm, harmony, melody. Dutch born, Chennai based saxophonist and composer Maarten Visser organised the structures, ideas and developments in sound, fine-tuned them with electric (bass) violinist Holger Jetter and drummer Robbert van Hulzen. Together they created music which offers ample space for the musicians to make their own musical plan, manipulate the score, improvise. It is music with a constant tension between sound and silence, notes and noise, between structure and freedom.
