Dutch bassist Luc Klaasen was an original member of the legendary avantgarde/punk band The Ex, later played with Tom Cora and today is very active as sound artist and composer with big ensembles. Luc Ex uses this project to explore the liminal zone where sound and music overlap or merge. Driven by a passion for both, he has created work for a medium-sized ensemble that is based on specific environmental sounds. Our entire world is brimming with sound; an omnipresent phenomenon that is hard to escape in many spheres of modern society. Each piece springs from a specific sound e.g. ventilators, concrete mixers, people talking loudly into their phones, building sites, robots. These elements add up to a beautiful musical painting, which straddles the middle ground between contemporary music and urban soundscapes while giving a knowing wink to the oeuvres of people like John Cage, Harry Partch, or Luigi Russolo. Personnel: Joost Buis - trombone; Saartje van Camp - cello; Luc Ex - acoustic bass; Renato Ferierra - bass/tenor sax; Pepe Garcia - percussion; Yedo Gibson -reeds; Nora Mulder - piano; Mika Szafrowski - guitar; Veryan Weston - piano/keystation; Nina Hitz - cello; Vladislav Psaruk - trombone.
