With this first concert in the familiar environment of the Théâtre de Liège, the instrumentalists of this very original quartet (percussion, electric guitar, saxophone and bass) present a programme of ‘fresh’ works drawing on extremely diverse backgrounds: elements of free jazz and hard core combined into an atmosphere of total ecstasy by Alexander Schubert, a performance with fluorescent tubes by the Danish composer Simon Løffler, obscure sound explorations by Andrea Mancianti, or a prolonged noise universe by composer Kasper Toeplitz.
Tom De Cock (percussion), Maarten Stragier (electric guitar), Vincent Daoud (saxophone) and James Oesi (double bass)
