Formed in Nottingham in 1982 on the wave of post-industrial music that emerged out of Post Punk, OYC are now in their 35th year and 4th incarnation, based around core members Andrew Hulme and Roger Horberry. OYC forged their own path away from their early industrial and electronic influences to incorporate the then-unfashionable ambient music into their own sound. |

QUEST [Frans De Waard] (NL)
Quest exists since the mid 90s as an ambient house sort of project by Frans de Waard. The project has been hibernating from 2001 to 2014 but since then has been in full swing again. There has been the rhythmic side (as QST) and the more ambient (Quest). Following a CD release as Quest for Where Ambient Lives and QST by Static Caravan, it is now time to take matters on the road. Frans de Waard (1965) has been producing music since 1984 (Kapotte Muziek, Beequeen, Goem, Zebra, Freiband, Shifts, Modelbau, etc.). He has worked for the pioneering Dutch tape label Staalplaat (1992-2003) and since 1986 as a reviewer for his own publication Vital (now Vital Weekly), a magazine which has been an online source for underground music since 1995, and which celebrated its 1000th issue in 2015.
In 2016 Timeless published in France his first book, an autobiography of life in Staalplaat titled This Is Supposed To Be A Record Label.

DJ ZIPO [aufabwegen] / Till Kniola
plays a set of ambient/field recording/noise collages. Activities have included DJ sets at European concert tours with Aube, Troum, Marc Behrens and Asmus Tietchens as well as regular nights in Cologne and Muenster and sets at special events & international festivals.

14-12 SPACE IS THE PLACE: Mandala Tribe + Mark Haanstra/Oene van Geel

SPACE IS THE PLACE: Mandala Tribe + Mark Haanstra/Oene van Geel

Thursday, December 14, music starts 21:00, € 8 / € 5*

* All money goes straight to the musicians.


Mandala Tribe is an synergetic combination of electronic music with jazz and Indian music. Decoding ragas in dynamic beats, harmony and virtuoso improvisations with an itching electro-acoustic sound and spiritual touch by three legendary musical explorers.

Stefan Schmid – keys | Heiko Dijker – tabla | Mark Alban Lotz – flutes

Oene van Geel and Mark Haanstra share a musical history for nearly twenty years. Playing together in many different groups and winning several prizes such as the Dutch Jazz Competition (1998) and the Boy Edgar Prize (Oene, 2013), they now take a plunge into the essence of their combined musical roots and look for new horizons as a duo.
