Ensemble Perforator - Backbone

Venue: Bimhuis

Concert
€ 15.00 - € 19.00

New ensemble makes its debut with music by, among others, jazz pianist Nik Bärtsch, contemporary composer Judd Greenstein and indie pop musicians Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond).

Five top Dutch musicians get together for a special collaboration, featuring the famous bassoon player and Save the Bassoon flag-bearer Bram van Sambeek. The young quintet make their festival debut, performing a concert of improvisations on a selection of ‘backbones’, very basic compositions which fit on a single A4 page. The pieces are written by the musicians themselves and by guest composers who like to cross musical boundaries. They include jazz pianist Nik Bärtsch, composer Judd Greenstein and indie pop musicians Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond). It promises to be an exciting evening of extremes, ranging from electronic explosions to delicate chamber music, with a starring role for the bassoon.
