Alchemistic Cabaret #5: "Quick Silver, Slow Gold”
Friday, June 13th
Evening starts @ 21:00
An evening of gongs, percussion and trumpet, with performances by Michael Vatcher, Diego Espinosa and the band Cosmic Scene.
On this last Alchemistic Cabaret of the season, Gongs and other bronze, copper and silver instruments play the lead role. Percussionist / drummer Michael Vatcher and Diego Espinosa share their passion for gongs and Cosmic Scene - trumpetplayer Michel Varekamp’s pet project - plays further along the path started by Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew, mixing funk, jazz and psychedelic dark noise. In between sets The Burkens / Kooger Vibe explores the vastness beyond the outer rim of musical space, where jazz meets sonic soundscapes. All this will be enlightened by Action Lighting by Pierre Mansire. And the evening ends with the strange trippy dancemusic from past and future by DJ Phil. This will be the last Alchemistic Cabaret of this season, don't miss it!
With the Alchemistic Cabaret series Auxxx gathers artists of diverse origin and artistic inclination under the umbrella of the evenings alchemistic formula, loosely connecting them and the audience for an adventurous experience.
