Two progressive giants in the crossover of improvisation and electronics are joining forces for the first time. Knalpot, with Gerri Jäger, Raphael Vanoli, and Sandor Caron, describes themselves as one of the most uncompromising electronic rock acts of the moment. And they prove it in every show, when drone sounds intermingle with pop songs, distorted drums intermingle with Bach-esque guitar, and out-of-this-world guitars are amplified by synths. Now they are teaming up with Frank Wienk, aka Binkbeats. This producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist knows better than anyone how to convert organic sounds into electronic music. In short: an act that is guaranteed to blow your mind.
Support on this evening comes from the brand new Utrecht ensemble Postland, which is joining forces with composer Ben van Bueren to combine the values and style elements of pop music with the craft and virtuosity of a contemporary ensemble.
