MEELKOP / HITZ / GENOVESI (int'l)
[Roel Meelkop - electronics / Nina Hitz - cello / Alfredo Genovesi - guitar]
The members of this trio have previously played together in other constellations, but never before in this specific formation. They will engage in a collaborative performance of subtle improv using guitar, cello, and electronics. Genovesi's brilliant guitar sounds (somewhere between Hendrix, Hans Reichel, and Derek Bailey) will be coupled with Nina's meandering cello work and Meelkop's delicate drones. Yum!
RADBOUD MENS (nl)
Radboud is an esteemed sound-artist, composer, and sound designer who has been active since the mid-eighties. His music varies from rhythmically minimal electronica to conceptual music, within the broadest sense of contemporary music.
This modular synth / electronica boss-man started with his machines around '94. Throughout the years he amassed a ridiculous synth/electronica collection, and now leads a dedicated synth scene with Noodlebar. Dennis is keen to retain the contrariety of the human and non-human elements in performance. For Vrooom #44, Dennis will come up with an alternative to his more danceable set.
JOE KISSER (nl)
Non-regular Joe Kuster spent most of his artist career dissecting animals and cooking inane objects to reconstruct its parts into three-dimensional artworks. 'Joe Kisser' is his musical other self, with which he'll investigate patterns of behaviour between his sound toys and more adult machines.
Kutwyf learned the ropes with Dutch noise institution FCKN' BSTRDS. A one woman noise act emerging from a fluorescent rubbish heap. Always a treat.
DJ RAGING EGO (nl)
Music snob with diva-like antics, but he does know how to play a really good tune. Raging Ego will provide comic relief for the ears inbetween live sets.
This event is made possible with kind support of Popunie Rotterdam.
