Binkbeats presents OHM

Binkbeats presents OHM

Frank Wienk, a.k.a. Binkbeats is known for his progressive compositions which explore the boundaries between acoustic and electronic music. For his new project he collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Henk Schut. His electro-acoustical objects combined with ritual percussion and influences from modern dance music form the spill in a fully immersive experience.


For OHM, Wienk wrote complex rhythmical pieces which he plays all the way live, no looping involved. Traditional ritual drums go hand in hand with drumcomputer sounds. Big resonating metal plates positioned around the audience. A quadraphonic speaker setup, drowning you in sound as the quietest ear candy passages are followed up by thunderous mayhem.


Musically, Wienk took inspiration from ritual instruments and techno-sounds. Drums with animal skins, timbila, simantra and a lithophone, but also drumcomputer kickdrums and deep basses. Polyrhythms are a key element in the compositions; as they shift in multiple layers over one another, they create a variable sense of time for the listener.


Out of great curiosity in sound, Wienk experimented with transforming a synthetic source into analog, acoustic sounds. In that search he found Henk Schut: making physical objects vibrate through electronic signals appeared to be a common interest. The musicality of Wienk and the expertise of Schut complemented each other: together they designed a new installation which inspired Wienk to make the spatial sound ritual that became ‘OHM’.
