BRUEGEL proverb #10 To cast pearls before swine in C#

During the BANG! Festival Alien Observer, the moniker for the musical work of artist / curator / musician / producer Laurens Mariën (NEIN, ex-Soldier's Heart, ...), will pay tribute to the Flemish polyphony that flourished during Bruegel’s lifetime.

At his night out, Alien Observer takes up the role of the conductor, who will lead his choir and soloists through a contemporary, modern, own interpretation of polyphony

With the cadence of the VUB choir Café Latte as a polyphonic base, six soloists sing, each in turn, over his hypnotic composition.

 

The soloists:

 

SOLoIST 1: JORIS VAN DE MOORTEL

 

 

(c) Leontien Allemeersch

 

Our festival curator Joris Van De Moortel will take the first lead.

 

SOLoIST 2: DOLLY BING BING

 

(c) Leontien Allemeersch



Dolly Bing Bing - a glamorous alien popstar created and impersonated by artist/dancer Elisabeth Van Dam goes second.

 

 

SOLoIST 3: BENJAMIN ABEL MEIRHAEGHE

Subsequently: "self-proclaimed narcissist and performer" Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe takes the stage. Meirgaeghe already worked together with producer Alien Observer on SWINGS, among other projects.  Irony and sincerity lead to iconic performances.

 

SOLoIST 4: RAPHAËL DESMARETS

 

 

(c) Leontien Allemeersch 

 

Up next: nimble-fingered multi-instrumentalist at Le Colisée and  ex- Robbing Millions bassist.

 

SOLoIST 5: RAMSES VAN DEN EEDE + DRUMMER ELIAS DEVOLDERE

 

 

 (c) Leontien Allemeersch

Ramses can be situated in the noise scene, as a band leader of Hypochristmutreefuzz + member of Teen Creeps, the love for the theatrical is clear. Elias Devoldere accompanies him with fast powerful drum fills.

 

SOLoIST 6: ALIEN OBSERVER + DRUMMER JORIS KERREMANS

 

  (c) Leontien Allemeersch

Yours truly, will create an "oh supermen" inspired recording with different clips and samples of all kinds of voices. Friends, family but also the sound of swine are glued together guided by Joris Kerremans, the drummer of She Sells Seashells and drum machine without a power outlet.

 

 

In short: we suspect Alien Observer's Vocal Night Out to be very intense and hypnotic.

One of a kind!

BANGI CURATED BY JORIS VAN DE MOOTEL

12 PROVERBS ON PLATES

6 MAY - 8 JUNE

BEGIJNHOFKERK BRUSSEL

 

 

Due to the construction work currently being undertaken, KultuurKaffee has opted for a nomadic existence and, together with a guest curator, assembles twice a year a multidisciplinary programme of events at various locations dotted around the city of Brussels.

During 6 weeks our guest curator works around a specific theme. He or she chooses different artists from several artistic fields to create and put together an impressive line up. Each time we search for a unique location in the heart of Brussels that harmonizes with the philosophy of the program. 

This spring artist and musician Joris Van De Moortel will be the guest curator of BANG! festival #5.

Joris Van de Moortel will bring an ode to painter Pieter Paul Bruegel The Elder during BANG! The artist and his guests enter into dialogue with Bruegel's allegorical painting: “Twelve Proverbs” (1558-1560). 

Every evening is dedicated to the voicing of a proverb of Bruegel, this coupled to a different key.
