Something very special is about to happen. On Friday October 18th, we will join forces with The Royal Concertgebouw and /entrée, the youth association of The Concertgebouw and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for a very expectional night. During Amsterdam Dance Event 2013 Henrik Schwarz Instruments, DARKSIDE and Patrice Bäumel will share the stage of the Main Hall with Het Nederlands Kamerorkest for a seated concert. Our artists in the setting of The Royal Concertgebouw, in order to explore the boundaries between the electronic and classical worlds of music.
Many will know Henrik Schwarz as one of the pilars of the Berlin record label Innervisions. Over the last two years, Schwarz developed an innovative approach to transfer his personal aesthetics of modern techno productions into acoustic chamber music arrangements. His most recent project is called Henrik Schwarz Instruments, whereby eight of his productions are transcribed for a contemporary music ensemble for a fully acoustic listening experience. No electronics only the sound brass, strings and percussions playing his music in world-renowned concert halls.
Het Nederlands Kamerorkest (The Dutch Chamber Orchestra) plays roughly 25 concerts annually in The Royal Concertgebouw. The orchestra also performs at other Dutch venues and abroad with the Dutch Philharmonic Orchestra. On October the 18th, Henrik Schwarz will lead the orchestra.
With Erik Satie and Mulatu Astatke as his sources of inspiration, Nicolas Jaar started making organic electronic music in the year 2004. After breaking through with the highly acclaimed album ‘Space Is Only Noise’, Nicolas Jaar focused on breaking new ground with new projects. In 2011, he started the collaborative live project DARKSIDE together with close friend Dave Harrington. Characterized by Nicolas Jaar’s minimalistic aesthetic sound and the soft guitar lines of Dave Harrington, these two men never performed together in the Netherlands. Until now that is.
On October 18th our resident Patrice Bäumel will be performing a live interpretation of Steve Reich’s “Drumming Part 2”. Hereby he’ll live-sample the sounds of a percussionist and a vocalist to subsequently digitally rework and remix it in delay loops whilst adding background sounds. This will cause a modern and just as hypnotising version of Reich’s original to arise.
Presale for Trouw at Concertgebouw will start on Friday July 26th at 13.00 on the website of The Concertgebouw.
