ANNELIE KONING/LUC EX/TRISTAN RENFROW
This energetic trio consists of Annelie Koning on vocals, Luc Ex on acoustic bass and Tristan Renfrow on drums, all based in Amsterdam. Koning switches, apparently effortlessly, between singing a poem and improvising an original story through the lyrics. Luc Ex creates warm, infectious grooves that respond playfully and effectively to the texts, but cannot be tamed by them. Renfrow’s clear and direct grooves connect all of them and leaves no space for doubt. Their new program ‘Love is a dog from hell’ is based on poems of Charles Bukowski. The compositions that they wrote are direct, pure and work strongly together with the poetry of Bukowski. An energetic and powerful interplay.
Annelie Koning – voice | Luc Ex – acoustic bass | Tristan Renfrow – drums
PIA RES SOLO
Structures for solo saxophone; aiming to deepen the perception of sound, time and space with conscious practice of undisturbed subconscious flow.
SEAShell3 is a new Amsterdam-based trio that fuses the sound and spirit of Mediterranean folk music with wild free improvisations and electro-acoustic psychedelia. Born out of the experimental solo work of Sicilian percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Vincenzo AcquAria Castellana, SEAShell3 also includes Sicilian trombonist/multi-instrumentalist Salvoandrea Lucifora and Canadian double bassist Aaron Lumley. In SEAShell3’s music, churning groove and fragments of melodies dissolve into rich soundscapes in ways that are evocative of an ancient past while being, contemporary, relentlessly progressive.
