A new edition of our Ruisburo series – ambient, experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music combined with visual arts. Today the presentation of a very special project by the Kleefstra Bros in collaboration with the Polish sound artist Michał Jacaszek. More acts TBA.


IT DEEL is a new project for the upcoming years by the Kleefstra Bros in collaboration with Popfabryk. The underlying motive for this new project is the disastrous damage of the nature. Together with guest musicians the brothers work on new material in the Thomaskerk in Katlijk (Friesland, NL) which stands in relation to this theme of environmental decline. Each project is presented live in front of an audience and results in a vinyl release on Moving Furniture Records.

The Kleefstra Bros are poet Jan Kleefstra and guitarist Romke Kleefstra. Both are member of (amongst others) Piiptsjilling, The Alvaret Ensemble, CMKK, Tsjinlûd and Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra.  For IT DEEL I in 2021 they collaborated with the Polish composer, producer and sound artist Michał Jacaszek.

Michał Jacaszek creates electro-acoustic music in which electronic sounds are combined with acoustic instruments. He often collaborates with other artist from various backgrounds incl. video art, visual arts, dance choreography and photography.

IT DEEL I is released on vinyl by Moving Furniture Records

Under the name Nobuka, Michel van Collenburg makes experimental, lo-fi electronic music based on field recordings, analog equipment, tape recorders and samples. His influences range from the cinematic character of Ryuichi Sakamoto to the experimental drive of composers such as Stockhausen and Steve Reich, as well as contemporary musicians such as Jonny Greenwood, Mica Levi, Claire Rousay and Machinefabriek. Live, in layered soundscapes, he allows moments of stillness to collide with hectic and chaos. After his successful album Reiko (2021, esc.rec) he released his latest work ‘Miniatüre’ this year via the British label DAAM, consisting of 22 short musical sketches on cassette and a photo book inspired by a stay in Berlin.
