Jente Waerzeggers is a Belgian audiovisual artist, part of Kontakt Group and member of De Nooit Moede (†). Mathieu Serruys is graphic designer, musician and half of the B.A.A.D.M. label. On this night they present their new collaboration, seamlessly blending guitar, electronics and field recordings.
• OLIVER COATES
London-based cellist and composer Oliver Coates moves at the intersection of classical minimalism, ambient drone and doom metal. He has performed music by Pauline Oliveros and Morton Feldman, shared the stage with Radiohead, Mica Levi and Dean Blunt, and released a great deal of music for films and on albums (including on RVNG Intl). He covers his moving cello melodies with a thick layer of effects, hypnotic loops and deep drones. This leads to intense live performances with great physical and emotional impact. In October 2020, Coates released his best studio album to date, Skins n Slime, a trip along distorted cello sounds with a great contribution from Belgium-based artist Malibu. After his cancelled show last year (damn you, covid!) we are happy to welcome him for real.
• COBY SEY

His dreamy compositions and translated live by a three-piece band with a special light choreography by Charlie Hope. His long-expected debut album Conduit is released on September 9 by the AD93 label.
