Live in Amsterdam at PuntWG during The Homestead Principle #7: A Beautiful Corpse In An Exquisite Morgue. With Philip Grozinger‘s “We can still have human interaction” hanging in the background.
Tomorrow Leilani and I will be travelling to Rotterdam’s Roodkapje where we will perform as HEXENEICHE at MiMa #32. Other acts that night will be Mittland och Leo from Antwerp who will be playing a “psychedelic organpop and atonal synth weirdness as sensualizing cherries on top of a minimal beat cake” plus Vakantie which is made up of “two cheerful beat making boys straight out of Groningen, where they are also part of De Gym, an amazing venue in the heart of the city centre. Armed with synth’s, loopers, delayyy and a laptop these guys sounds like the perfect bond between analog and digital”. We hope to see you there, this time we will not forget our cd’s and tapes that we’d love to sell to you!
The Homestead Principle project by Sebastiaan Schlicher comprises a series of artistic takeovers of gallery spaces and art venues through site-specific installations and noise performances (‘performative installations’) created with his collective Amerikan Teenager.
The series next installment takes place on november 8, 2014 during the annual GLOW Eindhoven festival, when Amerikan Teenager will host an artist-run Band Camp at Het Glaspaviljoen.
During this 5th artistic takeover, visitors, artists, musicians and passers-by are invited to spend the day on the Pavillion’s premises, exchange thoughts and ideas and engage in preparatory activities for the evening’s programme of music and performances. A sculptural multimedia installation whose construction will serve as a backdrop to these events will remain on display in the pavillion until the 15th of November.
An aural document of the event will be released on audio cassette through Eindhoven’s Barreuh Record label towards the end of the year.

The Four Elements that I refer to here, is a cassette that came out on Korm Plastics back in 1990. On its cover it showed a visual score by Frans de Waard and it featured six musical interpretations of the score by acts like THU20, Kapotte Muziek and Massimo Toniutti. That visual score always intrigued me and for years I’ve been carrying it along in my mind with the intent to make a musical piece for it… someday. I finally made my interpretation of it and soon this 20-minute track will be released on Moving Furniture Records. The original score lasted for 7 and a halve minute but I have taken that “carrying in mind” part to another level: I didn’t look back anymore to the original score but instead started using the score that had been maturing in my head. Listen to a preview below via soundcloud.
It’s been about 8 months since I was working in the Extrapool studio with Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson, on an album for the BromBron project. I’m still not sure when exactly it will be released, but I do know that it’s gonna be soon. Sort of. I guess? Below a sneak peak of the great artwork for the upcoming album made by Astrid Florentinus!
Just got word today that I can play this years SOTU festival in Amsterdam! This Sunday the 12th of May I’ll replace Aart Strootman of DU013 and thus play an impro set together with Bram Stadhouders. Last time we shared the stage was back in April 2008 so I’m looking forward to this reunion! We’ll start playing around 18:00 hrs at Budapest. Hope to see you there!
