Edison Jams meets Brussels by Night: Modular Sessions at ADE Sound Lab.
Edison Jams: Nerdy people doing cool things. Cool people doing nerdy things. Meets Brussels by Night: a Brussels tinted collab with ADE, initiated by de Brakke Grond and Poppunt and further supported by Sabam for Culture. Three Brussels based synthesizer obsessives meet two Dutch modular legends for a total of five improvised sessions. An experiment in sound without rules. Expect the unexpected!
Starting off his carreer, Antoine Pasqualini played pop music in France. After breaking up with old compositions, habits and traditional instruments, he fell into modular synthesis, drone and ambient. But as Monolithe Noir, he always kept the drum parts and melodies from his past close to his ear. He’s released his first two EP’s with Berlin based KODX, and welcomed his first LP Le Son Grave in 2017.
Weird Dust started out as a discreet player in the Belgian noise scene, exploring not only sonic but above all melodic and rhytmical possibilities of analog and digital equipment. His music is reminiscent of John Carpenter’s classic synth scores, mixed with a heavy cosmic music vibe, with nods of techno, house and synthesizer funk. He saw his first two cassettes released through KERM Records and is also known as half of psychedelic trance duo Tav Exotic. Expect a diamond in the rough waiting to be discovered, with a live performance revolving around loose structures and improvisation.
Simon Halsberghe lives and works in Brussels. Operating from such a culturally diverse city has a distinct influence on his artistic practice and results in an extremely broad scope. He previously released as Simon Hold (VLEK), Habergeon (Gentle Tapes) and as half of Pitch & Hold (Love Triangle Music). And not only has he composed music for theatre and film, Simon also works as a music consultant for fashion brands, with the likes of Christopher Kane and Gianni Versace.
Sjamsoedin has been messing around with electronic instruments for two decades which culminated in building his own modular system a few years back. He’s toured the world with several bands and collectives, never losing his passion for the music, always using the technology to serve the dancefloor and the groove.
The biggest name in the Dutch Modular scene will be present tonight for an improvised set. You will not be disappointed!
