Three masters of the electronic medium; Francisco Lopez, John Wall and John Oswald will create new work in collaboration with the ensemble. Each of their work is characterised by a distinctive style, and a unique approach to sound. The fact that these composers work largely in a medium outside traditional notated music makes this project particularly interesting. The extreme techniques used by these composers in their electronic work will be transformed into the acoustic sound of the ensemble.

Whoever has experienced the concerts of Spanish composer Francisco Lopez, knows that he has a preference for blindfolding the audience in order to experience his subsonic sound world on a more primary level. Over the last twenty five years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world.

The British sample-composer John Wall makes collages from rock, jazz and classical music, where the source of the material is barely recognisable. Rather than focusing on the frantic juxtaposition of different sources, he fuses the snippets into organic flows of real music. The starting point for the collaboration with Ensemble MAE will be the work ‘Fractuur', which will be transformed and reworked into the colours of the ensemble through use of live electronics.

John Oswald is famous for his ‘Plunderphonics’, collages made entirely from other music, such as Michael Jackson, Elvis or Bruce Springsteen. He nearly always incorporates an electroacoustic element to his productions, focusing on metamorphosis and eclecticism realised from existing materials

Date: Amsterdam Tuesday June 9, 2009
Start time: 20:30

Brent Arnold (Brooklyn, NY, United States) , violoncelliste , composer & singer.
My music is experimental songs using amplified cello, voice, and effects (loops, distortion, etc). I incorporate sonic exploration, American & European folksong, improvisation, rock, South Asian and Middle Eastern melody, electronics, European classical, and more. My solo show has been compared to Imogen Heap, Andrew Bird, and Final Fantasy... but very original. More information is below.

I have worked with indie rockers Modest Mouse, Sleater-Kinney and Built to Spill, to electronicists Dj/rupture and Filastine, to pop artists like Lenny Kravitz, to experimentalists like Project W and Eyvind Kang and Degenerate Art Ensemble.

Ane Brun @ Daytrotter

In the entire canon of popular music’s many different forms of love songs, the best ones tend to come from the point of view of someone who just can’t make any fucking sense about why it went wrong. But, to be clear, this doesn’t include the songs that can sound ill-tempered or by someone holding a major gripe, someone unable to not feel completely and hopelessly wronged to a disturbing end. It’s the category that is filled by songs that still feel like the love that came before the fallout, of the time and the place where it all began, without malice and sullenness ever being a glimmer in either party’s flaming eyes. These remain as the tender declarations that they could have been in the middle of all the new romance, when time seemed to stand still and rush by like a dragster all at once. It’s the kind of spell that the blood gets put on it during this swooning process, where it’s hot and flooded with all of these odd new endorphins that take over the senses, start running the show and before anyone knows it, the plug’s been pulled and the comedown has already begun – and it’s in that moment of ill-configuration when these songs of loss and unabashed reflection are at their apex, when they are able to just get it all out there in an unprocessed, unedited plume.
