20H: Wolter Wierbos
For trombone player Wolter Wierbos it's all about flexibility: the fluctuating of tone and time, of line and strategy and setting. He improvises freel, associatively during his solo concerts, but please don't forget that he is often praised for the fact that he can sound like an entire Ellington trombone section, from muffled ya-yas to beautiful melody statements, to dark shades.
In composed music he likes nothing more than to improvise, no wonder that for 30 years he was a pivot of the legendary formation of Misha Mengelberg, the ICP Orchestra, and also last year at Middelheim proved to be a suitable sparring partner for Chris Defoort in aside his ICP friend, veteran drummer Han Bennink.
“I see myself as a kind of sculptor or painter,” he says, “who puts sound, rhythm and form in the music.” If that doesn't fit nicely in a museum…
“…a total player, with outrageous facility and an inquiring mind…” John Corbett, Down Beat Magazine, US.
