Coming February 2018 we will play The MIRABEL TOUR. 10 concerts across the country to promote our new album. Last year we have been refining our new sound, music on the basis of improvisation; adventurous fast pieces alternate between slow, cinematic lines.

To present this new music in the most striking way, we present the album in a extraordinary setting. Under the name MIRABEL 360° we are producing four concerts  in which the audience is situated in a circle around the band. With a sound system of eight speakers, light objects and projections, unique color and sound worlds are created in which you are submerged. MIRABEL 360° is going to be an intimate but overwhelming experience.

The actual kickoff of The MIRABEL Tour is going to be in Broedplaats Lely, in Amsterdam and works as an ideal location for this project. We are really looking forward to these concerts and hope you will be there to join us.

Planetary Sunrise, our project at Oerol 2016, is done. It was a magical experience with 9 sold out concerts in the sand dunes of Terschelling, featuring the music of Terry Riley and Kapok, illuminated by hypnotic projections. Thanks to all our collaborators: the Ragazze Quartet, Slagwerk Den Haag, and Blauwe Uur, everyone who helped and supported this project in any way, and thank you to our audience for sharing this experience with us. We are planning to stage the show again in the future, in The Netherlands and abroad. Onward! 🙂

Edison

It’s been 2 years since we’ve won the Edison Jazzism Publieksprijs. For us it symbolizes the support that we have received from you, and that makes us happy and motivates us to continue to make the best music we can make.

The fact that we are nominated again is really flattering and feels like a reward for our efforts on GLASS TO SAND. But if you feel like voting, please do!

Here’s the link: www.edisons.nl/jazz/stemmen

Last but not least: check out Remco’s face on the picture! Never had there been a happier drummer to win the Edison.

Coming June we’re in for a treat. We’re joining forces again with the Ragazze Quartet to play at Oerol Festival. Over the years we’ve collaborated often with the string players but now we are doing a major project. Last year we wanted to play the music from Terry Riley, a minimal composer from the ’70, and we’ve arranged it for our combination of instruments. We’re really pleased with the result and performing it in a special way at the Oerol festival.

Also joined by graphic designers ‘Het Blauwe Uur’ and ‘Slagwerk Den Haag’ we are playing a trippy sunset concert in which the music of Riley fits perfectly. So every sunset, around 11 PM, there are 3 pieces being performed. We play a piece together with the Ragazze called Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collecter, a beautiful rhythmic and sort-of tonal piece with the performers are given a lot of freedom. And we are going to compose a new piece for us and ‘Slagwerk Den Haag’. If you’re able to visit the Oerol festival this year, do it!

Only problem is that we are still working on the funds for this project. It quite a major project and in that way pretty expensive so we would like to ask you if you could support us make this project happen. We have a ‘VoordeKunst’ actie for crowdfunding. Please watch the video here. Thank you!
