Foraminerals Symposium
dec 11 @ 8:45 pm

Sunday, December 11, 20:30, RSVP here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the intersection between organic and inorganic matter, the field of biomineralization studies how organisms form minerals, which often are shaped into complex architectural structures with remarkable material properties.

The Foraminerals symposium provides a stage for scientists, outside of the usual academic platforms, and artists to share thoughts, images and stories inspired by biominerals. The symposium aims to enable connections between artists, architects, designers and scientists, and to offer new perspectives on our environment by merging the lenses of biogeochemistry and art.

Please RSVP here as there are a limited number of seats available, for questions feel free to contact me. Hope to see you at De Ruimte on the 11th of December!

SCHEDULE
20:00 – Bar open, time to meet each other and the minerals

The evening will be moderated by Reef and Sponge scientists Dr. Alice Webb

Performance artist Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti will open the evening with a shamanistic ritual to invite the spirit of the mineral

Part I 20:30-21:30
Dr. Helen King | Utrecht University – ‘Biological architects: building with minerals’
A 3D perspective on the mineral-based structures that biology makes as a consequence of its actions and on purpose, comparing minerals formed by microbial systems and us.

Sema Bekirovic | Artist – ‘Reading by osmosis’
The culture/nature dichotomy isn’t as self evident as has long been held. If culture and nature can no longer be seen as opposites, what’s to keep us from stretching things a little bit further, and proclaim nature to be capable of art, of authorship?

Esmee Geerken | Netherlands institute for Sea research (NIOZ) – ‘Future fossils’
Looking at the evolution of architecture from a unicellular perspective, while taking rather big jumps through geological time.

Dr. Willem Noorduin | Self organising matter group AMOLF – ‘Shaping up matter’
Inspired by natural processes, Willem’s group explores how minerals can be sculpted into microscopic architectures.

Break
During the break, images of Cogwheels by Dr. Inge van Dijk (Alfred Wegner institute for Polar and Sea research) are displayed.

Part II 21:45 – 22:45
Dr. Takashi Toyofuku | Japanse Agency for Marine Science and Technology
– ‘Tiny life’
Takashi will show the beauty of tiny shapes created by the various organisms from his biomineralisation lab.

Dr. Lennart de Nooijer | NIOZ – ‘Blueprints’
Blueprints are representations of the essence of physical things and are, for Lennart, the best symbol of what science is all about.

Prof. dr. Gert-Jan Reichart | Utrecht University – ‘Paleoceanography’
Gert-Jan will elaborate on what biominerals tell us about the climate of the past, and how this can be used to better understand future climate change

Jasper Coppes | Artist and filmmaker – ‘Wisdom of the Ice’
As an alternative to the typical images we see of the melting Greenland ice-sheet, Jasper will talk about his current film project, which emphasises on the perspectives of Greenlandic inhabitants from the biological and mineral world.

After the talks the bar will be open till around midnight to meet up and discuss

Space is the Place: Lencastre/Petruccelli/Skoric + Emilio Berné + DADA
dec 12 @ 8:30 pm

Thursday, December 12, music starts 21:00, entrance €6-18 euro’s (sliding scale)

JOSÉ LENCASTRE/MIGUEL PETRUCCELLI/ALEKSANDAR SKORIC
This band first played together last February in Portugal. In October the trio hits the road in Serbia for a tour. The music can go into different paths but always flows naturally in constant communication between the three musicians.

José Lencastre – saxophone | Miguel Petruccelli – bass guitar | Aleksandar Škorić – drums

EMILIO BERNÉ
Emilio Bernè (IT) is a drummer and improviser whose approach is oriented on abstractionism and noise with the idea of extended sound of simulated electronics through the use of amplified metal strings and spinners on an electro-acoustic drum set combined with no input mixer.

Emilio Berne’ – drums, electronics

DADA
Started off as a middle finger to the framing of educational systems worldwide, DADA! evolved into a mashup of do’s and don’t’s of alternative band.

« It was always better before »

That is a sentence that the DADA! duo is trying to prove wrong. Pushing the boundaries of all conformism in art, they believe that the only real art form can be performed in the present. Art shouldn’t be a relic of the past or a vision of the future. Art is now.

The rough shapes of this bass/drums duo is going to leave a print on your ears, good or bad. Get ready for a big question mark remixing all the thoughts you had about being an artist in 2019!

Ruisburo: Belgian drone night
dec 15 @ 8:30 pm

Sunday, December 15, doors open 20:00, start music 21:00, entrance €7

Ruisburo with Stratosphere, Distant Fires Burning, Misantronics and Synchyse

STRATOSPHERE (BE)
In the early 90’s, Stratosphere started experimenting with music. Using analog tape devices combined with synth sounds, the first songs were created. After these first steps, audio recordings were added that complemented and defined the typical stratosphere feel. Spheric soundcapes with harmonic melodies became the signature sound of stratosphere. This resulted in a few releases in the next years together with some live performances. Feeding on these experiences, more acoustic instruments (including guitar) were added which created an even more harmonic sound.
After a decade of silence, and a dramatic change in life, stratosphere picked up music again. Using his experience as a sound and recording engineer, his interest in music creation returned. This time, only guitar and bass guitar were used, in combination of a wide range of pedal effects. Simplifying his working method, resulted in an number of new tracks. Due to the changes in life, a darker side is introduced, but the typical sound remains. Soundscapes and harmonics are still the base of his music. So a new era has started for stratosphere returning to the music scene with a fresh view and renewed motivation.

DISTANT FIRES BURNING (BE)
The creative work of Gert De Meester from the town of Battel (A suburb of Mechelen, Belgium, at the confluence of three rivers). Gert’s musical outlet always represented a very diverse palette of musical genres. He started out as a bass-player for rock, thrash, funk and pop bands including: The Hindu Needle Trick and The Seven Laws Of Woo. Elsewhere he was creating electronic music under aliases The Mental Attack and Reverend Basstorius’ Intergalactic Funk Experience.
In 2007, Gert started to experiment more with ambient and it became clear that Distant Fires Burning was the vehicle for a very personal expression and one in which the bass guitar re-entered as the primary source. Distant Fires Burning is Gert’s expression through bass – enhanced and manipulated to create a very unique and personal sound.

MISANTRONICS (BE)
“Misantronics is the experimental ambient project by musician/writer/music journalist/creative generalist Serge T. Formed in 2009, Misantronics explores the boundaries of ambient, often by blending it with other musical styles, such as trip-hop, techno, post rock, noise and even death metal. With this approach, this act has delivered some surprising pieces of music, even to himself. Besides his solo work, Misantronics has cooperated with several acts, including Stratosphere, Ashtoreth and Syrinx.
He is also a member of Synchyse and Valavond Ensemble.


SYNCHYSE (BE)
A new collaboration between the musicians behind Stratosphere, Distant Fires Burning and Misantronics.

Additionally, Frank has been featured on over 150 recordings.

He is also involved in a solo project called Milkwork: a study in integration of electronically manipulated percussion instruments, improvising dense sound walls with controlled feedback, over-driven amplified drums. Frank blends soundscapes designed through analog electronic synthesis with extended techniques on unamplified drum set. Frank also studies cymbal hammering and instrument building, and utilizes these physical experiments within this project.

Frank Rosaly – drums, percussion

 

DIRAR KALASH SOLO PIANO
Dirar Kalash is a musician and sound artist whose work spans a wide range of musical and sonic practices within a variety of compositional and improvisational contexts.

Dirar Kalash – piano

 

_OF CLOUDS
Melodies from a rainy Sunday afternoon floating on electric clouds. _of clouds plays original composition and improvisation where the mellow sounds of an acoustic piano, electronic textures, obsessive beats and dreamlike images melt together. Alessandro Mazzieri and Luca Sguera met in Siena in 2015. Since then, they’ve shared the stage in multiple projects (Cocoon, Lilac for People, AKA), and are now performing their first duo.

_of clouds was born and developed in Amsterdam where both are currently based.

PERFORMANCE: Margo van de Linde
Als spoken word-performer mengt Margo moeiteloos script en improvisatie. Het meeste dat je van haar hoort is live en geïnspireerd door de plek en de mensen die er zijn. In de vorm speelt ze met ritmes, maar inhoud is haar drijfveer. Als artiest is ze bekend om theaterstukken die improvisatie en dialoog combineren, bijvoorbeeld Translating Lola en Improvised Feminism. Daarnaast cureert en host ze de maandelijkse avond Subculture Cabaret, die artiesten samenbrengt uit uiteenlepende Amsterdamse artistieke scenes.
