Rammel Club #47 -- Fri 26 April 2013
JAAP BLONK / THE BONGOLEEROS / ... (various wildcards)
|Poster by Alan Smithee|
Working with Trade, Rammel Club presents an evening of improvised vocal performances and performance wildcards.
JAAP BLONK is a Dutch avant-garde composer. Blonk is known for a large vocal vocabulary in which words and sounds are twisted and amalgamated into an array of surprising noises. There is also considerable humour in the work, mimicking nature and improvising with the unique audio and social situation of each performance. Blonk is also a leading performer of Kurt Schwitters’s sound works, recently performing 'Ursonate' at Late Tate at Tate Britain.
THE BONGOLEEROS deliver animated vocal performances that take the experimental nature of Blonk's performance in a different direction, positioning different qualities of sounds against each other, a upbeat Jazz riff with coarse vocals? sure thing. Before it all comes to familiar they throw other things into the mix, an offbeat dance or strike of a floor tom, to create a whirling, churning, buoyant experience.
The event also includes additional performances by 'WILDCARDS', untested or unfamiliar performers (Artists TBC).
Note: There is no licensed bar, BYOB (and behave)
