Reed player Ken Vandermark and Terrie Hessels, playing guitar with the legendary band The Ex, collaborate frequently in The Ex & Brass Unbound and Lean Left – the power improv band with Paal Nilssen-Love and Andy Moor in the ranks. Still it took these influential musicians until september 2014 to take their passion for powerful and intense improvisation as a duo to the stage. On Tuesday 11 October this duo will hit DE Studio for another challenging concert in the Oorstof series.
TOM MALMENDIER & FARIDA AMADOU (NYSTAGMUS)
Both drummer and percussionist Tom Malmendier and bass player Farida Amadou are prominent members of L’oeil Kollectif, a group of young musicians from the Liège area committed to improvisation. Malmendier and Amadou – working under the Nystagmus banner – spontaneously fuse noise, rock and grooves while improvising.
