aspen edities

Walters wildcard gaat dit keer naar Aspen Edities. Het label/collectief neemt het roer over van Walter en gooit de deuren van de werkplaats open voor een - tja, voorlopig alweer enkel online - publiek.

Due to COVID19 we will organise an online streaming of all the Walter-concerts between January and the end of May 2021. It's Walter's way to open up your ears and relaunch safe and intimate live concerts in 2021. By buying a subscription for the full streaming service, you are directly supporting all musicians envolved.

A subscription for the full streaming service is available for 25 EUR, for at least 15 concert streamings (all available untill the end of June 2021).

dans les arbres

Xavier Charles (FR) - clarinet
Christian Wallumrød (NO) - piano
Ivar Grydeland (NO) - guitar
Ingar Zach (NO) - percussion

Dans les arbres is an improvising ensemble comprising French clarinettist Xavier Charles and the three Norwegians pianist Christian Wallumrød, guitarist Ivar Grydeland, and percussionist Ingar Zach.

“This unique improvising quartet (...) continues to fine-tune its artistic concept with a rare sense of accord, and shared responsibilities.” (ECM Records)

The group’s idiosyncratic inhabitants form unusual combinations of airy, wooden, metallic sounds, prepared strings and tampered drum heads. Their world of sounds and the fine sense of communication, lead to collective playing and spontaneous group- composing named to be in a “class of its own”. Their music moves gently but steadily ahead on broad planes of sound. The dynamic textural sceneries evolve as Dans les arbres harnesses its wealth of unorthodox extended techniques.

poor isa

Ruben Machtelinckx - banjo and woodblocks
Frederik Leroux - banjo and woodblocks

The combination of prepared banjo and woodblocks expresses a surging condition in which silence and sound are equivalent. From improvisations, elements are magnified, isolated or developed further until rippling compositions arise in which subtle and hardly audible sounds come to the surface. The project resulted in 'let's drink the sea and dance', a bundle of nine compositions.

Due to COVID19 we will organise an online streaming of all the Walter-concerts between January and the end of May 2021.
From the moment we're allowed to host a real audience, a limited audience of 25 people can enjoy a live and intimate concert.

It's Walter's way to open up your ears and relaunch safe and intimate live concerts in 2021. By buying a ticket for this concert (series) or the streaming, you are directly supporting all musicians envolved.

A subscription for the full streaming service is available for 25 EUR, for at least 15 concert streamings (all available untill the end of June 2021). For practical reasons it's not possible to buy a ticket for a single live streaming.
