First round of the year! Another vibrant three-way mix of different performances, featuring: the award-winning "LSe" (a selfbuilt instrument made by Kacper Ziemianin), a solo set by Knalpot's Gerri Jäger, and "sonic brain goo" electronica project Yader aka Bear Bones, Lay Low + Jooklo Duo.

GERRI JÄGER ┆ at/nlGerri Jäger is best known for the duo Knalpot with Raphael Vanoli, who have been infiltrating the Amsterdam underground as well as the European clubs and festivals with their combination of raw electronics, wild improvistation and danceable dub. Following his studies at the concervatory of Amsterdam, the Austrian-born drummer immersed himself in the realm of experimental music, combining his drums with the kind of gear mostly associated with DJ’s.

YADER ┆ ve/it [ bear bones, lay low / jooklo duo ] "Spaced out jumbles from three cyclonic backstreet hypno-freaks" is one apt way to describe the music of Yader - the improv electronica outfit comprised of Ernesto González (Bear Bones, Lay Low) and David Vanzan & Virginia Genta (Jooklo Duo). This trio just released a cassette on the Bear Town Records imprint containing music for meditation or the act of mapping the inside of a pyramid. It's the stuff for purposes beyond explanations.https://soundcloud.com/beartown_records/nothing-is-real-yader

Ctrl Freq is Kacper Ziemianin; a sound designer, circuit bender, improviser, audio hacker, and instrument designer. The "LSe" is his self-built, award-winning musical instrument for live electronic music. It allows users to program sequences of light which are translated into sounds; a combination that opens up lots of possibilities for controlling, structuring and interacting with sound. This instrument addresses the ‚liveness‘ of electronic music performances; how does the audience know if the performance is really live? How can we relate to the onstage actions of the musicians? Ctrl Freq's 'LSe' creates a direct link between the visual and sonic realm.
