Over het evenement

American drummer Michael Vatcher lived many years in Amsterdam,  until last year when he moved back to New York City.  In Amsterdam he was a member of the impro-scene for over 30 years. This unorthodox drummer and percussionist has played with , Michael Moore Quartet, Tristan Honsinger, Franly Douglas- Sunchild, Maarten Altena Ensemble and Mathilde Santing, just to name a few. But now he is back in good old Amsterdam to give a concert with dear friends.  

Eli Wallace, pianist/improviser/composer, resides in Brooklyn, NY envisioning his own projects, and collaborating with other like-minded artists. His work as a pianist displays a proclivity to free improvisation, incorporating elaborate piano preparations that John Lewis (The Guardian) says is "...pushing the boundaries of the prepared piano."   website 

Jessica Ackerley is a Canadian guitarist, improviser and composer based in Honolulu and New York City and has been described as "one of the most exciting guitarists to have emerged from the US free music scene in recent years" by Wire Magazine. Since 2017, Ackerley has released 19 albums to much critical acclaim with features in Wire Magazine, BBC Radio, and Bandcamp.   website.

Wilbert de Joode, winner of the Boy Edgar price,  is a veritable research scientist of bass pizzicato and bowing techniques. De Joode is currently one of the most active bass players on the European improvised music circuit. His individual style and musicality transforms the double bass into an equal partner in the most varied ensembles. A personal tone colour, exploration of the outer registers, quirky improvisations and the use of gut strings contribute to an instantly recognizable and intriguing sound.
