FREDERIK LEROUX & NATHAN WOUTERS
20:30 - @ W-O-L-K-E
FREDERIK LEROUX plays both improvised and composed music for banjo and 'tape delay’. The banjo is deliberately approached from an intuitive angle. The lack of formal knowledge about the instrument works liberating. Although still a sense of alienation lurks around the corner, a range of emotions is served to the audience. Introspection, solitude and silence are words that come to mind. Frederick also runs his own CD-R and tape label ‘Sill anders', and was co-host for the now defunct Charles Ball concert series in Brussels.
Bassist NATHAN WOUTERS was born into a musical family. At the age of 10 he started to play classical bass at the Music Academy of Merksem. A few years later he was incorporated in the Orchestra of Jeunesse Musicales Antwerp, led by Ivo Venkov. In 2004 Wouters won the first prize in the Live Music Competition, which led to a concert tour in Croatia. After having completed his classical studies he went on to study jazz with Piet Verbist and Nicolas Thys at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp and then continued his studies at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) with renowned Anders Jormin as his teacher. He graduated magna cum laude.
Today he is part of the up and coming young jazz scene with soul mates such as Joachim Badenhorst, Alexi Tuomarila, Erik Bogaerts, Bert Cools, Stijn Cools and Christian Mendoza.
‘THE STRATISONOGRAPHIC EXPERIMENT’
– 22U00 @ WOLKE
In the late 1960’s scientists theorized about the possibilities to recover sounds from ancient artefacts, sounds that would have been unintentionally recorded on the surface of these objects when the tools that made them subtly vibrated during the making process. When throwing a clay pot on a wheel, a ceramist for example would unknowingly record ambient sound in the soft clay by means of his vibrating tools and hands. Archeologists thought they could possibly decode these vibrations and thus replay the sound and conversations that took place at the time the pot or vase was created. A new scientific discipline -archaeoacoustics- was born.
Although archaeoacoustics never gained traction in subsequent years, and proved difficult to recreate in the lab, it is an appealing thought that one could be able to hear the sound of passed times through objects. With The Stratisonographic Experiment Unfold tries, for future archeologists, to embed the performance of this evening onto a vase, by using 3D-printing. During the performance, one single vase will be created and on that vase, the sounds of the performance will be embedded. As a piece of history, this vase will become an acoustic time capsule of March 13, 2015.
