vitja pauwels 'leap detach' - release concert
Leap/detach is a trio that originated in the context of a two-year research with the name ‘Electronic Extensions of Acoustics’ at the Conservatory of Antwerp.
The ensemble consists of:
Vitja Pauwels – acoustic, electric and pedal steel guitar + live processing
Hendrik Lasure – piano + live processing
Casper Van De Velde – drums and objects + live processing
Leap/detach extends their acoustic sound palette with ad hoc manipulated sounds, giving rise to very different facets of the music. Expect elastic music that is mainly improvised from a minimalistic approach, in which live sampling plays an important role. Vitja, Hendrik and Casper recorded 'leap/detach', which is coming out early 2020 on the Walter label. They will present this release with two concerts at Werkplaats Walter and at deSingel, together with the launch of a blog with documentation about their process.
