SPACE IS THE PLACE: LINUS/van Heertum/Økland/Zach + Zach
Tuesday, October 3, music starts at 21:00, € 9 / students € 6
The music of Linus does not have a fixed trajectory which stifles the imagination. Nor does the duo engage in obvious grandeur or cheap effects. On the contrary, the music is sketched, patiently and with delicate shades of grey, measured and restrained, free from crude interventions and abrupt outbursts. Coherence and freedom are central. The music is cinematic without transparently clinging to images. Instead, it tickles the imagination with its combination of mystery and familiarity, beauty and a little confusion. It both challenges and comforts.
For some years now, LINUS (guitarist Ruben Machtelinckx and reed player Thomas Jillings) have been playing with guest players Nils Økland (on hardanger fiddle) and Niels Van Heertum (euphonium, trumpet). Now they have expanded their line-up with Norwegian percussionist Ingar Zach. Zach will also open the night with a solo set.
