22:30 – 00:00 TivoliVredenburg – Cloud Nine
For years guitarist Jasper Stadhouders has been a sensation on the Amsterdam and international free improvisation scene, but his ambitions extend further. Gaudeamus is glad to help him realize his dreams by commissioning a work to be performed by his PolyBand. With PolyBand he brings together a large group of musician friends of his for a dizzying, unstoppable cocktail of krautrock, mathcore, cumbia and more. The gigantic band keeps switching between tight control and total surrender, in a 90-minute-long hypnotizing composition which could just as easily last 6 hours. Prepare to be blown away.
