ADA RAVE DUO
Unfortunately, Nicola Hein won’t be able to make it, so Ada Rave and Wilbert de Joode will be playing as a duo.
This drumless trio put together by saxophone player Ada Rave (Argentina, based in Amsterdam since 2013), mixes two fascinating musicians who had never played together before: Nicola L. Hein (de) on prepared guitar and Wilbert De Joode (nl) on double bass. The result is a trio with a unique narrative, a musical dialogue that is coined by fast, telepathic interaction and energetic interplay, never losing nuance and awareness for subtle impulses and sudden changes.
Last year, the Ada Rave Trio presented their CD ‘the Sea, the Storm and the Full Moon’, released on the Clean Feed label.

String trio Räs is an improvising unit of three players; George Dimitriu, violin, Maya Felixbrodt, viola and Nina Hitz, Cello.
Räs’ music should not have the obvious interaction that happens when improv musicians meet, it is more like a body of sound that exists in its own world, rattling and mumbling and creating an atmosphere.
The area of tension in which Räs moves ranges from Wandelweiser music to the conceptualism of Cage (pieces like landscape nr 4 for 12 radio’s), adding a very personal taste to this approach. All instruments are like radio’s that are turned on random frequencies, interacting with each other because they are playing in the same space at the same time, but without a conscious knowledge of each other’s presence..
