Loop-Copy-Mutate concert at STEIM Amsterdam470

Location: STEIM, Amsterdam
Time: 20:30h
More information: http://steim.org/ - http://genetic-choir.org/loop-copy-mutate/ - http://west28.nl/LCM/

Loop-Copy-Mutate: Music from People and Places is a new project by the Genetic Choir which will yield a year-long series of concerts. Led by singer and artistic director Thomas Johannsen the Genetic Choir will direct our ears towards something urbanites often take for granted: city sounds. Together with laptop artist Robert van Heumen, programmer Stelios Manousakis, and the public, the choir will transform sampled city sounds into voice and music compositions.
For Loop-Copy-Mutate the Genetic Choir will invite people from all over the world to enrich the online Freesound database (http://freesound.org) with sounds taken from their own surroundings. The choir will source its sounds from this database, so the public is involved in shaping the compositions.

The première of Loop-Copy-Mutate will be held on 2 July 2017 in the new Noord/Zuidlijn metro station beneath Amsterdam Central Station. In the weeks leading up to this event, sound samples taken from the station and from passengers will be collected to form the basis for a full concert given underground.

Spoon3 concert tour Berlin: Kunstfabrik Schlot -- UPDATE!465

-- UPDATE: unfortunately I will not be able to participate in the concert, Spoon3 will play as a trio --

Location: Kunstfabrik Schlot, Invalidenstraße 117, Berlin
Time: 20:30

Spoon3 is Jodi Gilbert (voice), Albert van Veenendaal (piano), Meinrad Kneer (bass) & Robert van Heumen (laptop-instrument)
In many aspects a band that crosses over many styles. The classic trio combination of piano, bass and voice forms a basis for transparency and beauty. The laptop-instrument adds a mix of confrontation and adventure to subvert this well-known trio constellation.
