LA VALLEE DE L'ETRANGE - THE DOUBLE BASS IN THE AGE OF AUTOMATION (FR-DE) - Pascal Niggenkemper (double bass)
Pascal Niggenkemper's new solo work 'la vallée de l'étrange' reflects on the shift that occurs in the work environment due to automatisation, exploring the interaction between human and machine by using an augmented double bass he calls cobonore (word construct btw cobot and & sonore). The instrument becomes a revisited device zoned into eight areas where motors are used.
Described by the New York City Jazz Records as "one of the most adventurous bassists on the scene" and by the Chicago Reader "genius for sound exploration" Franco-German bassist and composer Pascal Niggenkemper creates music bluring the lines between improvised, experimental and pure sound.
The focus of his musical work is the extension of the sonic horizon of the double bass: the acoustic sound modification using preparations.

PIERRE VERVLOESEM (BE) - Pierre Vervloesem (gitare)
DANIELE MARTINI QUARTET (IT/BE/PT) CD release 'Impermanent' - Daniele Martini (saxophone), Bram Delooze (piano), Manolo Cabras (double bas), João Lobo (drums)
Pierre Vervloesem is a Belgian avant-garde guitar player and producer, and has been described as Belgium's Frank Zappa. After playing in a handful of experimental rock bands in the early 1990s, Vervloesem joined avant-garde band X-Legged Sally and since then, he has been a musical partner of Peter Vermeersch (FES) in many musical expeditions, both as a performer and as a producer, for example in A Group and the theatre production Weg (by Josse De Pauw). hey also produced together the first LP by rock group dEUS. Vervloesem's guitar playing style has been associated with that of Nick Didkovsky, Fred Frith, Nels Cline, Joe Satriani, Steve Vaiand of course Frank Zappa.
Daniele Martini, advocate of sound experimentation, is active in jazz as well as in free improvisation, afrobeat or afro-latin punk. As an eclectic saxophonist, he traveled around the world with Nate Wooley, Tony Allen and Oghene Kologbo, to name just a few. In his quartet he is surrounded by three outstanding musicians from the Belgian contemporary scene: the recognized super talent and pianist Bram De Looze, the double bass player Manolo Cabras (Poalo Fresu, Toots Thielemans, Charles Gayle, Marshall Allen, ...) and the Portuguese drummer Joao Lobo (Enrico Rava, Oba Loba, Pedro Guidi, ...). A beautiful alchemy arises in the quest for innovative music in the here and now. Just like Miles Davis' second quintet, the quartet alternates melodic with rhythmic moments and gives room for interaction and individual interpretation.
