This will be the first sign of life after the H.A.N.S festival in February.
May 28th we will host living concert part XXVI and XXVII with; Orphax and Stratosphere.
Amsterdam based musician and trained drummer Sietse van Erve was introduced to electronic music in the early nineties. After playing around with tracker software, he eventually recorded his first music with beats and melodies in 1998, but soon lost interest in both. He started researching new sounds and new ways of working – always with an organic touch, including incorporating sounds that would be regarded by others as errors or mistakes, as life isn’t without errors either. Most of his work is improvised, using a laptop and random objects ranging from keyboards, plastic cups being played with a bow, to vocals. The result is an organic lo-fi form of drone and minimal music. Besides being organic most of the Orphax’s releases are melancholic and even sad. http://www.orphax.com/
“In the early 90’s stratosphere started experimenting with music. Using analog tape devices combined with synth sounds, the first songs were created. After these first steps, audio recordings were added that complemented and defined the typical stratosphere feel. Spheric soundcapes with harmonic melodies became the signature sound of stratosphere. This resulted in a few releases in the next years together with some live performances. Feeding on these experiences, more acoustic instruments (including guitar) were added which created an even more harmonic sound.
We feel this will be an excellent start for 2016, and we’ve got more great artists lined up for you later this year (you can already mark July 8th on your calendar). Stay tuned.
