ALL CONNECTED #10 – THE FINAL: US synths from the 70’s / Belgian robots from the future
All Connected #10
For the 10th and final edition of All Connected, we have managed to get hold of the legendary Charlemagne Palestine, who will present a live piece with a number of synthesizers from the ’70s. Kristof Lauwers will present a couple of compositions with the robots of the Logos Foundation, that are also used by the likes of Aphex Twin. Lastly, Floris Vanhoof will also present a new piece of work live. Old Logos posters will be exhibited at the same time.
This New York composer/performer/visual artist (°1945), who resides in Brussels, is difficult to pigeon-hole. He is most known for his intensely presented piano work but, along with the likes of Terry Riley and Steven Reich, he was also a part of the first draft of minimal composers and is considered to be one of the early electronica pioneers of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Palestine wrote work for carillon, organ, piano, electronica, and created multi-media installations, performances and video art. He has already worked with the likes of Pan Sonic, Oren Ambarchi, Tony Conrad, Michael Gira and Z’ev.
