ELI WALLACE solo
NY based pianist/improviser/composer presenting first solo piano album, Barriers. Worked with musicians with a similar predilection such as Daniel Carter, Ingrid Laubrock, Billy Mintz, Ches Smith, Trevor Dunn, Michael Foster, Sandy Ewen, Brandon Lopez, and many others.

LUKAS SIMONIS/IVAN PALACKY
In October 2018, Ivan Palacký and Lukas Simonis met again as a duo after about 10 years. During their Austrian tour in 2008, they made an adventurous expedition in the wild surroundings of the mountain village of Harrachsthal. The small tour they did in CZ resulted in the recording ‘Smet het bew erf left’. As for the title of the CD; Both performers have a rich experience with intuitive speeches during the performance and therefore usage of some random words into the abstract sonic structure is not excluded in the happening, although it will be hard to decipher them from this record.

On one hand their music is rough, edgy and uses a broad field of sounds that do not necessarily go into music-related atmospheres but border on concrete and field noises. On the other hand, the music can be listened to in an ambient context, as for some mysterious reason the musical landscape that unfolds seems to be located somewhere in between quite abstract free improv music and some sort of experimental ambient…

Lukas Simonis – guitar | Ivan Palacky – knitting machine Dopleta 180

TOM ALDRICH
Born in 1974, grew up near Portland, Maine. Active as a musician in New York during the 90’s and early 2000’s, most notably as accordionist/composer/arranger in the experimental jazz group the Four Bags, with whom he performed at top NY venues such as BAMcafe, Knitting Factory, Celebrate Brooklyn, and at Symphony Space with legendary vocalist Jackie Cain. Moved to the Netherlands to pursue composition studies at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague from 2006-2010, where he composed for groups such as ASKO Ensemble and Bang on a Can Allstars. He has worked with artists ranging from pop songwriting icons Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil to jazz luminary Kurt Rosenwinkel. Currently based in Amsterdam.

It’s time to celebrate daring music with an extensive festival at the home base of SPACE is the PLACE: De Ruimte. With 350+ music evenings, 800+ acts and 1500+ artists under its belt, the progressive performing arts organisation Space is the Place has existed for 5 years already.

Starting in the afternoon and ending in the night, SITP presents a ratatouille of beautiful musicians, bands and performing artists, representing the expression and quality of adventurous performing arts in Amsterdam and beyond.

LINE-UP

FUENSANTA MENDEZ/ALISTAIR PAYNE/JOSÉ SOARES
Three voices and one guest piece of furniture. The trio was born from deep empathy and the shared values of vulnerability, melody and aesthetics in improvisation: this turned an
unusual instrumentation (trumpet, alto saxophone, voice and bass) into something inevitable.
Fuensanta Mendez – double bass/voice | Alistair Payne – trumpet | José Soares – alto saxophone

MARY OLIVER
Mary Oliver explores virtuosity in both scored and improvised music. Based in Amsterdam, Oliver is a key member of the improvising community, locally and internationally. She has performed with musicians a.o. Han Bennink, Erik Bosgraaf, Mark Dresser, Tristan Honsinger and many more.

Discordia. She performs regularly at the multidisciplinary culinary evenings ‘Ditdit-dada-ditdit’, co-organised by SITP.

MOLA SYLLA/OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND/FRANK ROSALY
A Dakar griot singer – an Amsterdam improviser – a Chicago jazz drummer. That’s the triangle of authenticity that shapes the uncompromising music of Sylla | Hoogland | Rosaly.

SANEM KALFA/MARTA WARELIS
Two of the most imaginative and expressive musicians of the Amsterdam improvised music scene join forces specially for the SITP Festival.

Sanem Kalfa – voice | Marta Warelis – piano

GIUSEPPE DORONZO SOLO
“One of the most exciting fresh voices in the Dutch jazz and impro scene” (Misha Andriessen, Trouw/Jazz). As a lover of unexplored space , border crossing sounds, Giuseppe focuses his research on the baritone saxophone, aiming to explore a vocabulary that goes through his background in contemporary classical music, jazz improvisation and his interest for non-western music.

Giuseppe Doronzo – baritone saxophone, percussion

LEO SVIRSKY SOLO
Leo Svirsky (b. 1988, USA) is a Russian-American pianist and composer currently based in the Hague, Netherlands. His music explores the instability of listening and the disorientation of memory and affect while remaining grounded in history and symbol, song and story. His latest solo record, River without banks; is a masterpiece.

Leo Svirsky – piano

ERNST GLERUM/JOHN DIKEMAN
During the first ditdit-dada-ditdit in 2017, Ernst Glerum and John Dikeman were asked to play Spirituals, based on an Albert Ayler album. The concert was full of fire, enthusiasm and zeal. Later on they also played in this formation in the Bimhuis and the Zomer Jazzfietstour.

Ernst Glerum – piano | John Dikeman – tenor saxophone

RITUAL HABITUAL
Alternating energies and sophisticated minimalism, composition and improvisation, the three musicians play under free jazz contrasts, constantly blurring the limits between structure and deconstruction.
Riccardo Marognaogna – tenor sax, bass clarinet, electronics | Gonçalo Almeidaa – double bass | Philipp Ernsting – drums

WOLTER WIERBOS SOLO
It is hard to think about the trombone in improvised music without thinking about Wolter Wierbos. Wolter plays with such passion and intuition that one can sometimes forget how mind blowing his
abilities on the instrument really are. His solo performances are, without an exception, amazing.

Wolter Wierbos – trombone

BACCHANALIA
The sextet Bacchanalia, led by the Uruguayan bass player Miguel Petruccelli, makes concert halls, pubs, venues and stages sweat and explode with their addictive concoction. The enchanting
Spanish-African rhythms and the raw explosive sounds of saxophone, guitar and percussion heat up the band sound, as if it is a fiery fire-spitting monster.
Expect a special formation for tonight, with extra musicians added during the concert.

John Dikeman – tenor saxophone | Nico Chientaroli – keys | Jeroen Kimman – guitar | Miguel Petruccelli – acoustic bass | Onno Govaert – drums

GEANNULEERD: Ruimtelijk Inzicht: Food Waste
Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Is veganistisch zijn wel echt goed voor jezelf en de planeet? Klopt het wel dat ik drie shirts voor vijf euro kan kopen? Hoe erg is het dat ik mijn half leeggegeten bord spaghetti weggooi en is recyclen nu écht nodig?

Loop jij wel eens rond met zo een vraag? Kijk met verschillende perspectieven naar een maatschappelijk onderwerp tijdens de eerste reeks van Ruimtelijk Inzicht! Met iedere maand een nieuw programma met experts die hun kennis delen en nog veel meer.

De derde editie van Ruimtelijk Inzicht staat in het thema van food waste. Je kent het wel, te veel gekookt en hup, het gaat de vuilnisbak in. Of je bewaart het in een bakje in de koelkast, maar na een aantal dagen komt het besef dat je het toch niet meer gaat eten dus gooi je het alsnog weg. Die ene keer dat je iets weggooit zal toch niet zo erg zijn? Of toch wel? Wat is het effect wanneer iedereen dit dagelijks doet? En hoe kun je het beste omgaan met de restjes van jouw eten? Kom nieuwe inzichten opdoen tijdens Ruimtelijk Inzicht || Food Waste op 14 april!

Entree = €3,- || 19:00-21:00

TAUPE
Taking risks only works if you’re willing to fail, and Taupe share an understanding that there’s no wrong way to play.

A decade of friendship has conjured a spooky telekinesis that anchors the band, even when their improvisations teeter on the edge of total collapse. The three-piece are an explosive live band, veering from taut metronomic precision into intentionally turbulent, uncharted territory. A DIY ethos feeds their wonky compositions, colliding sour scatter-skronk with sludgy, doom-inspired riffs.

Jamie Stockbridge – alto sax | Mike Parr-Burman – guitar | Adam Stapleford – drums

REINIER BAAS / FUENSANTA MENDEZ
Two of the most talented creative musicians, who know each other from the Amsterdam jazz scene, meet for a set of inspiring improvisations.Reinier Baas – guitar | Fuensanta Mendez – double bass, voice+ TBA

OBOL LE
OBOL LE is an electronic music visual performance.
With an ensemble consisting of performers Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti, Jochem van Tol, Frank Rosaly and Liú Mottes. The kaleidoscopic music is built with modular synthesizers, mesmerising guitar riffs, vocals that intertwine in an unprecedented cadence with the unpredictable drums.
OBOL LE creates a motley sonic dream. With an algorithm inspired by Bolivian weaving rituals, OBOL LE weaves their electro-drone songs into color and light, like a virtual carpet.
 
 
ZIV TAUBENFELD SOLO
Ziv Taubenfeld, born in Karmiel, Israel in February 1986, started playing the clarinet at age 11 as part of the school orchestra and continued with classical music studies at the local conservatory. During that period, following the low sounds, the bass clarinet was added as a second instrument that soon became Ziv’s main focus. His interest in improvised music grew bigger after meeting the influential saxophone player Albert Beger, who opened up a path that eventually led to further studies of the bass clarinet with Michael Moore in the Netherlands.
A former member of the Michael Moore Pool, Ziv currently leads Bones, a trio that is dedicated to his own compositions, Full Sun, as well as being a member of Kuhn Fu, Plots and Xavier Pamplona Ensemble. Other recent collaborations include Han Bennink, Ab Baars, Guus Janssen and Luis Vicente.
