On this evening: Apricot My lady is sound bros Adam and Jonathan Bohman, Anne La Berge, and Lukas Simonis. As a four-piece band they make music that sits on it’s desert island waiting for nobody, heard by everybody. The duo Maria Carlas and Mylo Cywitz present a costumed show that sounds like a garagey electronic opera. Stopping by from Germany: the "outernational" Spiritczualic Enhancement Center; an eclectic ensemble with rootst in different cities and countries who create ritualistic and devotional instrumentals.


Apricot My Lady comprises sound mavericks Adam and Jonathan Bohman, Anne La Berge and Lukas Simonis. Formed in 2003, the quartet joyously make borderline music using found objects, text, voice, samples, filters, mixers, pedals, violins, guitars and flutes. It might be (un)interesting to know whether this music is supposed to be ‘improvised’ or ‘composed’ or ‘heavily processed’ or even ‘spontaneously erected’. It’s all that and less, or none of that and more. Influences are: Fluxus, Cage, de Band Zonder Naam, and Ubiquity (not the software).

This eclectic ensemble can be described as a sort of free beat resonance field with a revolving cast of players. At Vrooom they're are going to be a quintet that creates spontaneous instrumentals that are ritualistic, strange and devotional. Following concerts at Fusion Festival in Berlin, the Outernational Days in Bucharest, and the New Hamburg festival, they have three releases coming up: "Transporting Salt" on Crash Symbols, "Who Corrupted Our Wave, Back in 1969?" on Kinship; and a vinyl release entitled "Me and My Students Have Reached Higher Levels" on Cheb Gero's Akuphone, scheduled for early 2019.

Maria Carlas (aka Carla Genchi) is a classicaly-trained singer from Italy who studied at the Nino Rota Conservatory in Monopoli. Carlas teamed up with Mylo Cywitz; a German vocalist and composer based in the Netherlands. The voices of this duo are embedded in an orchestral environment created by their samplers and electronics. Maria layers her operatic voice and impulsive key work onto Mylo's classical industrial compositions.


This event is made possible with kind support of Popunie Rotterdam.
