SATO NAOMI (jp)
Sato Naomi is a skilled saxohonist, composer, and Sho player from Tokyo. She studied the Sho instrument (a traditional Japanese mouth organ) with Ko Ishikawa at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. She has collaborated with many composers and played with numerous ensembles, and currently is the Sho player in Atlas Ensemble (Amsterdam). Moreover, Naomi gives workshops and lectures (on the ‘Contemporary music scene through Japanese traditional music’) in many academies of music and universities worldwide.
JANNE ERAKER / BRUNO FERRO XAVIER DA SILVA (nl)
Janne Eraker is a versatile Norwegian/German tap dancer. Her work is a crossover of contemporary dance, art and all kinds of music. She has initiated the Rotterdam 'Open Dans' festival (2009 - 2013), and has recently become the recipient of a three year Norwegian Artist Grant. For Rotterdam residents with a fair amount of interest in music, Bruno hardly needs an introduction; this virtuoso bassplayer spearheads many succesful bands. As a duo, Janne and Bruno wow audiences with their unusual performance.
MACHINEFABRIEK / SUBTERRANEANACT (nl)
Bass-clarinetist / electronica player Henk Bakker (Subterraneanact) and expert knob twiddler Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) recently accepted a challenge to do a live duo improv session that was, in fact, partly rehearsed. The two hit it off like a pressure-cooker and the music was recorded and released as ‘Persistent Objects’. Tonight is basically a continuation of the project and mini record release party to boot.
FRITS JONKER (nl)
Frits Jonker made a career as a comic book-letterer and has been doing this for over 25 years. He also designs posters and logos, and could be generally described as an image fetishist. One of his works is a daily fanzine of which 2000 editions were archived in book form, entitled 'Showcase'. At Vrooom Frits Jonker will present a reading about the oddities of the music world, combined with other artifacts he has collected over the years; an inexhaustable grab bag of fun facts, and pataphysics.
This event is made possible with kind support of Popunie Rotterdam.
