21-10 Champion Sounds Amsterdam Edition

Champion Sounds Amsterdam Edition: Machinefabriek/Minus Pilots/Kevin Buckland/+1

Sunday, October 21, 20:30, entrance €7

There will be a 7″ featuring music by the performing artists that will be limited to 5 individually numbered copies total. They will be given away via random draw and will only be available at this event.

Machinefabriek is the alias of Rutger Zuydervelt. Rutger’s music combines elements of ambient, noise, minimalism, drone, field recordings and electro-acoustic experiments. His pieces can be heard as an attempt to create sonic environments for the listener to dwell in. Finding tension in texture, tone and timing, the result can be very minimalistic at first glance, but reveals itself upon closer listening. The devil is in the detail.

Minus Pilots is percussionist Matt Pittori and bassist Adam Barringer. Touching the realms of modern classical, cinematic, post-rock, ambient and post-jazz, they weave sparse textures, crumbling atmospheres and fractured drones. Minus Pilots have performed in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin, London, Milan and Paris.

Kevin Buckland is a composer, electronic musician, improviser, field-recorder, photographer and solo bassist. He has worked and played with various ensembles and artists around the UK. His music has been played on several UK and European radio shows and has featured at installations and exhibitions around the UK. In 2017, Kevin founded Quietest Records, a label dedicated to quiet, contemplative, meditational, drone, ambient and classical music.

Fourth act to be confirmed.

18-10 Quartzite 4tet + Myderwijk/Menting

Space is the Place: Quartzite 4tet + tba

Thursday, October 18, music starts 21:00, entrance* € 9 / students € 6

*all proceeds go to the performing musicians.


Quartzite 4tet plays (in their own words) extremely compact granular and metamorphic rock. This ensemble explores the boundaries of classical-contemporary music, jazz and rock. Their highly structured compositions, full of explosive energy, leavie space for no-holds-barred improvisation. The international quartet met while studying at Codarts, Rotterdam. They became friends, then lovers, then something more and basically became a rock: QUARTZITE! And converged together as Quartzite 4tet in 2016.

Marko Jugovic – vibraphone | Wietse Voermans – saxophone | Alessio Bruno – bass | Elvis Homan – drums

Pianist Matteo Myderwyk and drummer Remco Menting have played before as a duo. Every show was different, because nothing was decided beforehand. Although some composed music was part of the sets, they were mostly free improvisation.
