21:15 Puce Mary
Belgian ensemble Razen explores the no man’s land between drone, folk music, psychedelica and old music. With half forgotten instruments such as the shawm or the gurdy, they create long improvisations ranging from barely audible to demonic ecstasy. They prefer older tunings, allowing for a better hearing of overtones and acoustic interferences. Razen came in residency in the beautiful Beguinage Church last year and experimented with the monumental church organ, as well as the acoustics of the building. These recordings resulted in the upcoming album Postcards From Hereafter to be released in September by Important Records.
Puce Mary is the solo moniker of experimental musician and sound artist Frederikke Hoffmeier. Oft-identified with the now-generation of industrial noise - Puce Mary has a reputation for intense live performances that span from gripping renditions of cinematic compositions to the full-on fury of off-the-cuff harsh noise. With countless releases (most recently on the multi-disciplinary label PAN), performances and collaborations with artists such as Kali Malone, Drew McDowall, Varg2TM and Loke Rahbek, Puce Mary has reached wide acclaim for her powerful and unique blend of modern experimental electronic and noise music.
