Glow in the Dark #2
New Emergences in collaboration with Moving Furniture Records and Ruisburo (cafè De Ruimte) present: Glow in The Dark #2.
In Café De Ruimte, a lovely and characteristic venue in Amsterdam-Noord with a great affinity for experimental sounds, you can meet three wonderful sound artists/composers. Each one of them has a different approach ranging from spatial sonic design to the natural sounds of everyday household items. In between the live sets there will be individual short talks with them about their work. New Emergences is a platform advocating diversity and gender equality in electronic music and sound art. Glow In The Dark is NE’s performance series traveling through the Netherlands.

Alselo (aka Katarzyna Glowicka) explores the stylistic points of possible junctions between classical, ambient, folk and minimalism. Dubbed “the next star from the East” (“Junge Welt”), she came into the international spotlight with her album “Red Sun” (Bolt Records, 2014). After pursuing a successful career in orchestral classical music, her artistic interests concentrate in multimedia works for theatre, opera and film.
Inge Hoonte (1979,
NL) works across writing, sound and public projects to orchestrate and
document moments of connection, both in harmony and dissonance. For
today’s performance, the natural sounds of everyday household items will
be amplified to compose a rhythmic soundscape.
