Today BRDCST takes you along on a fantastic journey by way of eight locations, with artists from just as many countries and at least as many genres. So BRDCST will be taking over the city, with nearby concert locations like Café Bonnefooi, Café Central, La Machine, Beursschouwburg and the Palace cinema. All that, only a stone’s throw from AB and with a fixed theme per location.
AB offers a vision of the future and we are willing to bet that K Á R Y Y N and our very own Charlotte Adigéry will make an impression there too. Los Angeles-resident and visual composer K Á R Y Y N (with spaces & capitals, and Armenian & Syrian roots) has already been lauded by Björk, who just recently referred to her as a source of inspiration. She gives a nod to Oneohtrix Point Never and Holly Herndon in her work. Charlotte Adigéry seems about ready for an international breakthrough, aside her electro-punk alter-ego WWWater. NME just recently wrote: ‘Adigéry’s Soulwax-produced EP is a celebratory and thumping delight’. Her EP ‘Zandoli’ will be out soon via Soulwax’ well-reputed DEEWEE Records.
The most predominant theme in AB Salon is American primitive guitar, a term coined by American fingerpicking-guitarist and pioneer John Fahey. BRDCST dedicates an entire evening to the genre and implicitly honours John Fahey and Jack Rose, thus allowing Wales’ Gwenifer Raymond and Brussels’ Brecht Ameel to join generational peers like James Blackshaw, Daniel Bachman and Bill Orcutt. John Fahey-fan Steve Gunn will also be present: the indie guitar-god Steve Gunn who was recently described by Slug Magazine as ‘Steve Gunn = José González + Donovan + Ryley Walker’.
Berlin’s contemporary modern-classical/ambient label Sonic Pieces marks its 10th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, BRDCST gives the driving force behind Sonic Pieces (and founding mother) Monique Recknagel carte blanche to put together a big evening around this boutique label. On the bill: Danish quartet We Like We, Spanish neo-classical/electro composer Rauelsson, and the almost mythical post-classical drone-duo Deaf Center.
Under the title The Art Of Noise – a nod to the Futurist manifesto ‘L’Arte dei Rumori’ by Luigi Russolo – we present a daily dose of (claustrophobic) (punk-)noise(-rock) and keen experimental electro. Are you ready for the apocalyptic Bliss Signal or: noise & electro meets black metal?
For your daily dose of Turkish psychedelica – sounds like: ‘Pink Floyd op saz’ – you can head to Café Bonnefooi. For (avant-)jazz you need to be at the nearby stage of La Machine, with Bendik Giske, a Queer Norwegian saxophonist who gives a nod to both Lindstrøm and Colin Stetson.
We finish every evening festively, under the banner of BRDCST BY NGHT in Beursschouwburg with grime producer Mumdance.
