TERRIE EX & JAAP BLONK
Jaap Blonk is a Dutch avant-garde composer and soundpoet. Blonk is primarily self-taught both as a sound artist and as a visual/stage performer. His performances of sound poetry are unique and word renowned, making use of words and phonetic snippets as well as clicks, hisses, and other vocal manipulations. He hooked up with The Ex guitarist Terrie, in 2006 and they did several gigs after that. In 2012 The Ex brought Jaap Blonk over to Ethiopia for a special soundpoetry project. The combination is an adventure in improvising sound and poetry; electronics, guitar and vocals.
Terrie and Jaap will present their brand new album ‘Thirsty Ears’ !
Terrie Hessels – guitar | Jaap Blonk – voice and electronics
The night will open with a solo performance by Terrie’s daughter, Lena Hessels.
