Space Impro: Solo night

Doors open: 20.00 / Music 21:00 sharp, entrance 6-18 (sliding scale, pay what you can)

Solo night featuring Guy Salamon, Andrius Dereviancenko, Jeroen Kimman, Laura Polence a.o.
Afterwards and in between sets: DJ Phonautogram

High time for another solo night after the impressive former editions. During the solo nights the musicians get the most out of themselves and their instrument, which creates a very concentrated and special atmosphere both for the audience and the musicians.

ANDRIUS DEREVIANCENKO
Andrius Dereviancenko is a saxophone player from Lithuania. He currently resides in Amsterdam and is active in the experimental music scene throughout Europe. He is, amongst others, band member of the Zebra Street Band.

LAURA POLENCE
Laura Polence is a singer and composer from Latvia, since based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands since 2007. Her musical background of Latvian folk music and 12 years of European academic music studies have merged with her strong interest in modern jazz, the popular music of Brazil and singer-songwriter-like compositional ideas in the last years.

JEROEN KIMMAN
Amsterdam-based guitarist/composer Jeroen Kimman could be considered something of an anthropologist within the Dutch creative music scene. He’s not strictly a composer, not strictly a hired gun “impossible guitar parts” player for modern ensembles, not strictly a gifted colorist for chamber jazz ensembles, not strictly a country music geek or ex math-rocker: his thing is more about collecting different approaches, learning from and slightly warping every musical angle that presents itself.

MAKIKO ITO
Makiko Ito is a choreographer and dancer from Japan who creates interactive performances. In her performances she collaborates with musicians and dancers who play an essential role in the interaction with the audience.

GUY SALAMON
Guy Salamon is an Amsterdam-based drummer, composer, arranger, recording artist and band leader, originally from Jerusalem, Israel. He is an active musician in the European jazz scene and known for his work with his own 8 piece band – the award winning ‘Guy Salamon Group’.

A rich & international evening full of movement – with soundscapes, refined compositions & free, masterly improvisations!

PAYNE / D.KUMMER / VITOLS
Payne / D.Kummer / Vitols aims to celebrate the lack of definition. Made of international musicians based in Amsterdam, the trio creates hectic soundscapes that constantly withstand turbulent shifts in state; from pointillism to stasis, through intricately layered frames and rhythmical elasticity; each member (all leaders and composers) explores his natural penchant for playfulness with refined ferocity. In contrast with its rather humble instrumentation, the band shows great concern for carefully orchestrated structures and spectral density!Alistair Payne – trumpet | Uldis Vitols – double bass | Tancrede D Kummer – drums

SANEM KALFA SOLO
Sanem Kalfa is a Turkish singer with a distinctive style, mixing jazz, improvisation, and world music into a powerful blend of emotions. After studying cello, she moved from Turkey to the Netherlands to study singing. Sanem is currently based in Amsterdam, performing worldwide and pleased to teach music to students (from any age and background). Her main aim is to be a part of an experience that will help enriching life by music.

Sanem Kalfa – voice, cello, electronics

LUIS VICENTE TRIO
Luis Vicente is a Portuguese trumpet player based in Lisbon. He plays in several groups with different concepts – from totally free to composed music – having always present the sense of freedom. The last years Luis Vicente is more and more present in the international scene. After the success of his partnership with John Dikeman, William Parker and Hamid Drake, Vicente turns to national silver, represented here by Gonçalo Almeida and Pedro Melo Alves. According to Hamid Drake (in the liner notes) Vicente’s work is a lesson about «looking and searching for new possibilities, broadening one’s views». The trio of Luis Vicente is a joy to listen to with their refined compositions and masterly improvisations.

Space Impro: Serries/Amado/Lisle + Mary Oliver solo @ De Ruimte
Nov 18 @ 8:00 pm

Space Impro: Serries/Amado/Lisle + Mary Oliver solo

Doors open: 20.00 / Music 21:00 sharp, entrance 6-18 (sliding scale, pay what you can)

DIRK SERRIES / RODRIGO AMADO / ANDREW LISLE
This international trio unites three stars of free jazz & improv. They each have their own background, but look for a common ground with the spontaneity of the moment as the central weapon.

They are all artists who see freedom not only as a liberation from something, but also as the opportunity to create something new. Together they tell a spontaneous story that gradually takes shape and meaning. Each performance is unique, an intimate entanglement of three instruments and three personalities. And that is exciting for musicians and listeners!

The musicians have played with each other before, but never as a trio, so we cannot wait to see and hear them play in this format!

Rodrigo Amado – tenor sax | Dirk Serries – guitar | Andrew Lisle – drums

MARY OLIVER SOLO
Mary Oliver (born in La Jolla, California) is an American performer on violin, viola, and Hardanger fiddle, in the areas of New Music, free improvisation, and avant-garde jazz. She currently lives in Amsterdam, where she is professor at the Hogeschool voor Kunst and musical director of the Magpie Music Dance Company. She is a key member of the improvising community, locally and internationally. She is also a key member of the Instant Composers Pool (ICP orchestra).
