RUMATOV
INFECTED NEEDLES

En DJ’s : DOODSESKADER + SURD ZILLAH

Event | aanvang 22.00 | Entree € 4,- | € 2,50 met studiebewijs RU/HAN

Vanavond de terugkeer van Noise Terminal 024 ! Met The Hitmachine dat rept van geluidsbombardementen en neurotische taferelen en een live show belooft die de vele gezichten van Hitmachine zal tonen…U is gewaarschuwd! Uit Breda komt Rumatov (Edwin van der Does en Michael Polane). Soundbites, fieldrecordings, touch-sounds en eigenwijze ritmes; alles wordt door hen verwerkt tot soundscapes die zich op de argeloze luisteraar storten.Infected Needles is een jonge Nijmeegse act die improviseert met alles zolang het maar geen regulier instrument is : van omgebouwd speelgoed, gesaboteerde effectenbakken en op hol geslagen muziekprogramma’s tot rondzwaaiende microfoons. Om de oortjes nog eens lekker door te smeren brengt Doodseskader (Bart Hard en Holmen) een dj set waar je u tegen zegt en zal ook resident DJ Surd Zillah bewijzen dat hij als geen ander het geluidszintuig weet te tarten.

Neo-beginners

TENT, Rotterdam,
Expositie van 31 augustus t/m 24 september 2006
entree € 3,50 / korting € 1,75



Samengesteld door kunstenaar Reinaart Vanhoe (Rotterdam).

Negentien Nederlandse en buitenlandse kunstenaars(collectieven) gaan met nieuw en bestaand werk in op de mentale en fysieke ruimte die Rotterdam hen te bieden heeft. De stad wordt bedolven onder reclame- en marketingslogans, en is decor van festivals die haar economie en identiteit moeten versterken. In alle pogingen om de stad zichtbaarder te maken wordt deze juist onzichtbaar door de ingevulde overvloed aan beelden en symbolen.
Neo-beginners biedt hieraan een radicaal tegenwicht.

Met: Forum Lenteng (ID), Nilsmagnus Sköld (SE), Rolf Engelen (NL), Gert Robijns (BE), LAb[au] (BE), Toine Horvers (NL), BAVO (BE), Ruangrupa (ID), Taco Stolk (NL), Roger Teeuwen (NL), Roel Meelkop (NL), BMB.con (UK/NL), Reinaart Vanhoe (BE), Matthijs van Zessen (NL), Gunndís Yr Finnbogadóttir (IS), Frans de Waard (NL), Matt Mullican (US), Joëlle Tuerlinckx (BE), Daniel Robberechts (BE) en Kristof van Gestel (BE).
Michael Snow (CA), Olivier Maarschalk/Pieter Kock (NL), Messieurs Delmotte (BE), Kyongfa Che (KR/JP), e.a.

Oddpop

june 25, 2005

Olé at Oddstock. A funfilled festival in Maastricht (NL). The Hitmachine played on a tiny stage, and Bertin did his solo thing inside the compound. There were a lot of odd people there, as you might expect. There was Jack the Rapper, Mc Cambodia & Booty Carrel, Masonic Youth, and La Bomba who played in the back of a van.

Geluidsoverlast

june 12, 2005

Captain Peacock and I (Bertin) made a short trip to Antwerpen (B) to do some shows. The Dennis Tyfus radio show and Scheld'apen. We also had the unique experience to play in this small appartment called 'Geluidsoverlast'. We couldn't really move the table on which I set up my equipment. So I had to play with my back towards the audience. Which was fine. Stefan, the guy-who-lived there and a very nice and friendly fellow, did have some curious artifacts in his house though. He had crucifixes hanging upside down, and a medievil battle axe laying around in the hallway.

Peacock and I both played two sets. The audience was very enthousiastic. It was a very small place, I still find it hard to believe Crank Sturgeon played here.

sinterklaas.mp3

dec 5,2004

The hitmachine_-_sinterklaas.mp3 track has been downloaded 1300 times!! According to Ernest, who keeps track of these things. He noticed an extreme increase of data traffic on dec 3, 2004.

In the Netherlands, each year on dec 5, we celebrate 'Sinterklaas'. More or less simular to Santa Claus. Both are based on the bishop of Myras (Turkey). His legendary gifts of dowries to poor children in the fourth century led to the custom of giving gifts to children on the eve of his birthday.

With this celebration there are traditional sinterklaas songs about the saint and his (black) pieten.

The hitmachine mp3, wich many family-man have downloaded, is an excerpt of a recording session that took place on 'sinterklaas' eve and has nothing to do with the tradition. It's a loud noise piece, as we can expect from the Hitmachine. Certainly not suitable for young ears.

oct 18, 2004

At the end of this year (2004) you can expect 4 new undescribable releases by Olé. Brand new Olé style funky music by Zebra, Bertin, The Hitmachine and Harry Merry. Making it a total of six quality items by Olé so far. And there is more to expect from our little production house. Be patient.

If you want a preview 'mp3-style' then you are at the right address. click here for a sample of Olé puree; all releases mixed into one big low quality preview.
