Oorstof improvisation evening with 2 great companies
Unfortunately due to personal reasons, Dirk Serries had to cancel his tour with Rodrigo Amado. Amado will still go ahead with the planned concerts and will play his duo concerts with bass player Farida Amadou.
Promoting the brand new g a b b r o album GRANULAR on Dropa Disc, baritone sax player Hanne De Backer hits the road with Austrian, in Norway residing, vocal artist Agnes Hvizdalek, Belgian bass player Raphael Malfliet and, newcomer to the band, Norwegian trombone player Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø. Please note this is a free for entrance concert on the base of first come first serve … Come early !
While g a b b r o, Hanne De Backer’s baritone sax project, used a no frills duo concept for its debut album, things take a different turn on GRANULAR, the second lp and first for the Dropa Disc label. With Marc De Maeseneer again by her side, this album also involves fellow Belgian experimentalist Raphael Malfliet on electric bass, as well as singular Austrian, residing in Norway, vocalist Agnes Hvizdalek. Taken from studio recordings, as well as the quartet’s performance at 2018’s Summer Bummer Festival, Granular turns fragmentation and attention for detail, sound and space into an invitation to listen without prejudice and expectations. The result is a strikingly original impression of a universe full of unconventional techniques, which retains a balance between the highly personal and a remarkable openness, turning the granules of the title into a broader, organic whole. For the concert at AB Salon and for the European tour that g a b b r o is embarking on Norwegian trombone player Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø wil join the core line up of Hanne De Backer (baritone sax), Agnes Zvidalek (voice, microphone) and Raphael Malfliet (el. bass).
This concert is organized in collaboration with Oorstof vzw
