SPACE IS THE PLACE ft. Doek: Wolter Wierbos solo + Sylla/Hoogland/Rosaly

Friday, December 14, 21:00 – 23:00, € 8



The second Friday of every month at De Ruimte at De Verkeerstoren is a two-stage rocket: from 21:00 to 23:00 dOeK and Space Is The Place present live music from the dOeK network. After that, the party-party starts with the wildest live music in town!

For trombonist Wolter Wierbos, it’s all about fluidity: of tone, and time, of line and strategy and setting. It’s been said he can sound like a whole Ellington trombone section, from plunger-muted ya-yas to gorgeous melody statements, to dark shadings in the corners. He improvises free-associative solo concerts that suggest still more avenues to investigate.

A trio by three musicians from all over the literal and not so literal map: singer, percussionist and musical explorer Mola Sylla from Dakar, Senegal; improviser, composer and eclectic musician Oscar Jan Hoogland on keys; and drummer Frank Rosaly, a key figure of Chicago’s improvisation and experimental music community.
