Noodlebar Radicals Precum Party

precum radicals


MONO-POLY (Rotterdam)
The founder of Noodlebar. Started collecting synths in the 90s but really started to focus on playing live since 2006.

TRAP&ZOID (Belgium)
Trap & Zoid is formerly a one-human electronic solo project, using mainly legendary EMS Synthis and some modular synths.

NAVS (Berlin)
Navs was introduced to modular synthesizers 10 years ago. He has been fascinated by the possibilities they offer to both gain and cede control over the creative process ever since. He is happy to have found his instrument.

As well as making music, he narrated a film about modulars called ‘I Dream of Wires’, writes a blog called ’Navs Modular Lab’ and co-curates a concert series in Berlin called ’Basic Electricity’ – the first regular club night dedicated to live performance and improvisation with modular synthesizers.

Live project by Stefan Robbers and Allard Krijger. Maybe Noodlebar is the one to blame that his project started? But only they know for sure.

Das Ding is Danny Bosten, who was active in the early 1980s releasing his music and friends’ music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. While studying graphic design in art school, he designed all the tape covers himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, some tracks are quite addictive and danceable while others are more for at home listening enjoyment.

Nowadays he’s an active member of Noodlebar (Modular visuals) and does great modularsynth live sets to. Our hero

Our guy from Amsterdam doing the maximum with the minumum. Expect some real deep techno grooves from this guy. Because size really doesn’t matter!

Peter is the guy who runs Casper Electronics and is a real lover of building and hacking his own stuff. Expect some techno rynthms coming from his awesome home build synth with his color flashing bulb into it.

SYBREN DANZ (Amsterdam)
Yeah another one from Amsterdam. Sybren is building his own stuff in a verry hardcore way. All the stuff he builds is done on breadboards with a lot of point to point solderding. And everything is build into modules which only he can operates. But when he does………

The archangels of the sun, masters on earth, are here to guide humanity to her final redemption and finish the work of heliogabalus and his gang, venerating the almighty monolith in order to penetrate the black sun. Phallus suprematicus!
To achieve their mission they’ve chosen the musical weapon without any limit of genre to bring as many humans as possible to understand the solar message. Pagan Gospel Black Metal, Minimal Ex-Stasi Techno, Death Blues, Bakery Doom, Lofi Abomination, Disco Zombie

This is gonna be a killter partty and there will be only 100 people allowed at the party.

Aether: Maze of Sound


Aether: Maze of Sound
Maze of Sound brings artists in the visual art and performance disciplines together with artists in the field of sound and music. The program begins with a tour through the studios and courtyard of Stichting B.a.d where the visitor will find new collaborations, installations and sounds taking place live. The program continues into the night with audio- visual compositions in the main hall with international acts. Expect digital media performance, pristine electronics, dense noise, tropical beats, deep bass, drums galore, a jungle of corners to lose yourself in plus a raging fire.

Doktor Schnitt
Doktor Schnitt is an infectiously danceable three-man formation starring bassist Bruno Ferro Xavier da Silva and an array of pedals, plus drummer Philipp Ernsting and percussionist Nique Quentin. With analogue drum and bass as their springboard, the three masterful gentlemen launch off into funk, electronica, jungle and ambient, all performed with a tight punk attitude.

Expect a trip from spacious ambient to experimental techno/idm. “At some point I realized I loved moving knobs and programming, more than playing with those white and black things (keys) on my synthesizers. Soon I bought my first modular synthesizer that started a never ending story. Then I met a guy called Jan who programmed self playing ‘patch noodles’ on the Clavia G2 modular. I become really passioned about self-generating patches that play stuff without any human or computer manipulation at all.”

Doron Sadja
Brooklyn (US) and Malmö (SE) based multimedia artist working primarily with multichannel spacialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments to create post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture.

Kevin Gallgher & Timmy van Zoelen
“The Sight in the Hand is the Work to be Done” is a multimedia performance of Kevin Gallagher in collaboration with Timmy van Zoelen. During the performance a story, set in the future, is told of a father and his daughter walking on a beach searching for treasures. Kevin Gallagher (US, 1986) and Timmy van Zoelen (NL, 1982) are Rotterdam based artists. They both received their MFA at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, respectively in 2013 and 2011. Next to their regular artistic practise they irregularly organise salon evenings in Café M’n Schoonmoeder’s under the name Blu Heron Social Club.

NOGOOD/SUPER are artists, cultural researchers, hoarders of funky fabulous things…AND WE ARE DJ’S. We have been around the dj-decks since 2004. Now the two of us are combining our taste for dirty bass lines and edgy ethnic styles.
We’re No Good, We’re Super, we are Nadine Stijns and Natasa Heydra.

Antje Guenther
Video Projections all night long. From the ongoing project COUNTER PROOF a first excerpt will be shown. It is questioning the influence of aesthetical impulses on theory set up / theory construction.
“Every snow crystal has an infinite beauty which is enhanced by knowledge that the investigator will, in all probability, never find another exactly alike.“ (W.A.Bentley, 1922)

Karin Trenkel
Karin Trenkel maakt voor de ruimte onder de trap de enscenering ‘Waar ben je?’ met het telefoontoestel T56 in de hoofdrol. Te zien en te horen gedurende de gehele avond, een bijzondere ervaring in het donker…
Karin Trenkel makes for the space under the stairs the staging ‘Where are you? ‘ with the phone T56 in the lead role. To see and hear during the whole evening, a special experience in the dark …

Anique Weve presents Hondenhok with Sociale Onrust

Zorg dat je er bij bent / past!, het wordt een oorverdovend spektakel.

Maurice Meewisse + Jordy Walker
‘Bijtel’ Maurice Meewisse hakt tijdens ‘Aether: Maze of sounds’ een boom om. Hij zal daarbij gebruik maken van verschillende hakbijlen. Jordy Walker zal tijdens het hakken muziek spelen, geïnspireerd op stromingen waarbij het fysieke en het muzikale samen komen.

Anna Mikhailova + Noortje Köhne + Kamiel Verschuren
SNåR is het kersverse samenwerkingsproject van Anna Mikailova en Noortje Köhne (altviool).
Geimproviseerde steppe landschappen en verkoolde pop riffs op KOTO en ALT VIOOL in het atelier van Kamiel Verschuren. Hij toont z”n atelier als nieuwe locatie voor optredens, exposities en andere events en zal beelden en een publicatie tonen van zijn publieke werk De Schouwplaats, open podium in het Zuiderpark Rotterdam.

Niki van Strien + Henk Bakker
“Matter expresses itself in many ways, from the simple emission of physical information to the deliberate use of melody and rhythm. The universe itself may be viewed as a grand symphony of material expressivity.” Manuel DeLanda (from: Material Expressivity)
Basclarinetist Henk Bakker zal middels een live-improvisatie de bezoeker van Niki’s atelier in het “hier en nu” brengen zodat ze met de juiste spanning (of juist ontspanning) de minimale show kunnen ervaren van haar werk.
