Hydra Ensemble is an electroacoustic quartet based in Rotterdam. It features Nina Hitz (cello), Lucija Gregov (cello), Gonçalo Almeida (double bass) and Rutger Zuydervelt aka Machinefabriek (electronics). The ensemble can be described as “four distinctive expressions finding common ground”. The quartet’s sonic language exists on the cracks of free improvisation, minimalism and experimental foreboding ambience. Expect highly intuitive collective improvisations that create an intricate patchwork of concurrent melodic lines, textural explorations and expansive drones.

is a rant. An invocation. An extensive effort to keep sane in the destructive and contradictory reality we live in. Torn apart between rejection, ignorance, apathy and resistance, floating in an absurd world, in which exploitation is a ruling force and constant cognitive dissonance leads to the acceptance of abuse. ALL US DADA integrates critics on the media and the economic system, with the necessity to overcome the alienation from nature and its destruction.
