RUISKAMER #1: Steiger / Tsubasa Hori & Heleen Van Haegenborgh
Wed 06.10.'2119:30 - 22:30Locatie
Gilles Vandecaveye-Pinoy, Kobe Boon and Simon Raman – alias Steiger – are three musicians who aren’t intimidated by genres or the unfamiliar. Imagine jazz, avant-garde and experimental electronica playing tag on a desolate landscape. The experimental piano trio released in 2021 a new LP: ‘The New Lady Llama’. For the recording sessions the group teamed up with producer/engineer Peter Desmedt (Beraadgeslagen, De Beren Gieren, John Ghost).
In recent years Steiger has been a musician-in-residence at Vooruit, deSingel and Flagey. The result of these residencies will be distilled into an EP – a collaboration with electronica musician Joe Talia – and an LP. The context in which they create their music has a big influence on the way in which the group improvises, composes and plays together. This ever-changing context is a crucial aspect of Steiger’s process.
Tsubasa Hori & Heleen Van Haegenborgh
Piano and taiko drums are inherently linked to Western classical music and Japanese traditional music, respectively. Based on the complement of these instruments, Tsubasa Hori and Heleen Van Haegenborgh improvise a world in which time and space are of secondary importance. Expect unexpected colours and subtly placed sounds in combination with rhythmic gongs, inside piano, echo, rhythm, koto and piano strings.
Tsubasa Hori has toured the globe with the likes of Japanese drum group Kodō and is active in the worlds of art, theatre and dance. Heleen Van Haegenborgh is a contemporary composer and pianist.
