VROOOM #26 @ DE PLAYER

















SATURDAY, MAY 2, 2015:

VROOOM #26
w/
– CHRIS CORSANO & METTE RASMUSSEN (dk/us)
– PETER JACQUEMYN & GONÇALO ALMEIDA (be/nl)
– IEKE TRINKS (nl)

– DJ SAJJRA (pe)


DE PLAYER will be spooning us this evening while we're regaining our balance after our exit from our main location, Klooster. Business will center around the ultra detailed, pleasantly derailed interplay between bass, drums, sax and peformance art. Corsano and Rasmussen will be pushing the limits of the classic sax/drums set-up, Jacquemyn and Almeida will be doing the same with their bottom ends. Visual artist Ieke Trinks will add that extra pinch of variety.

location: DE PLAYER - Hillelaan 49d, Rotterdam
doors: 20:30 / curfew: 01:00 / entrance: €6

■ CHRIS CORSANO & METTE RASMUSSEN (us/dk)
You're in for a premier league live set from these two! If you haven't witnessed Chris Corsano's playing by now, you have been sorely missing out. The extremely multifaceted drummer has been operating at the vanguards of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise since the late '90s. He has worked with one-of-a-kind artists such Evan Parker, Sir Richard Bishop, Nels Cline, Björk, and Jandek, and showcased his high energy, textural playing in the Rotterdam live circuit on several occasions before, performing with Paul Flaherty, and others. Mette Rasmussen is a Danish saxophone player with an impressive track record. She operates from Trondheim, Norway. Drawing from the energy of free jazz, her playing has been described as a head full of ideas, that she executes to the maximum.

■ PETER JACQUEMYN & GONÇALO ALMEIDA (be/nl)
Rotterdam's most productive double bassman Gonçalo Almeida teams up with Belgium's Peter Jacquemyn for an exploration of the bottom ends. Peter moves beautifully between visual arts and music. As a sculptor he assaults tree trunks with axe and chainsaw, and his concerts are a sonic match: with unbridled energy he wrestles his double bass using bows, soda cans, plastic bags, crumpled paper, mutes, horns, retuned strings... All of this ranges Peter Jacquemyn among Belgium's most interesting improvisers.

■ IEKE TRINKS (nl)
Rotterdam based visual artist whose live art is made manifest in different ways. As a solo performer, she has run through a large stack of copy paper, tossing it into the air, or used her breath to blow dry a piece of tissue paper. For Trinks performance art sometimes shares characteristics with the musical score. In other live actions she has solicited audience involvement. She once emptied the bag of an audience member by placing the items carefully onto the floor of a gallery space in Brazil. Trinks organizes Performance Art Event (PAE) in Rotterdam and works in collaboration with the improvisation troupe, TRICKSTER.

■ DJ SAJJRA (pe)
DJ Sajjra, Co-founder of the Aloardi collective from Lima / Peru, will play a crossbreed of roughed up, processed Andean folk, Peruvian chicha cumbia, bits of new/no wave, post-apocalyptic pop, basically all kinds of obscure but very very tasteful South American stuff from the sixties til now. This stuff will surely get you going one way or another!
