Agenda

Made To Break & Linus + Øokland/Van Heertum


De Ruimte, Amsterdam

11 / 8

MADE TO BREAK is improviser/composer Ken Vandermark’s newest ensemble and his most radical. Combining elements of his interest and experience with the music of Ethiopia and the Ex, alongside the New Music ideas of John Cage and Morton Feldman, and mixing these with his perspective toward jazz and improvised music history, he has devised a compositional framework for the band that can be restructured for every performance and which deals with melody, sound, and rhythm in a completely unique way. /// LINUS + ØKLAND/VAN HEERTUM The music of Linus does not have a fixed trajectory which stifles the imagination. Nor does the duo engage in obvious grandeur or cheap effects. On the contrary, the music is sketched, patiently and with delicate shades of grey, measured and restrained, free from crude interventions and abrupt outbursts. Coherence and freedom are central. The music is cinematic without transparently clinging to images.
