ATTENTION DEMAIN à Hasselt !

Bart De Paepe van het Sloow Tapes label en kunstencentrum BELGIE presenteren, na de geslaagde eerste editie van 2010 en met de steun van Pop in Limburg, voor de tweede keer verrassende geluiden en beelden uit de ondergrond. Graag Traag #2 schakelt voor deze gelegenheid nog een versnelling lager en biedt u meer tijd om het palet van psychedelica, hypnotische drones, kraut, acidfolk, improv, mini- en maximalisme en pure Belgische folklore ten volle te ontdekken.

De aftrap van de expo Dreamweapon: The Art and Life of Angus MacLise 1938-1979’ is tevens een unieke gelegenheid om het werk van deze veelzijdige en invloedrijke New Yorkse muzikant, dichter, beeldend kunstenaar, shamaan en wereldreiziger voor het eerst in Europa gebundeld te zien. Kunstencentrum BELGIE gaat hiervoor een samenwerking aan met het Hasseltse CIAP, een postume erkenning voor de grote invloed van MacLise binnen de Actuele Kunst. Op de websites van Sloow Tapes, kunstencentrum BELGIE en CIAP kan u terecht voor updates en extra’s die het festival en de expo zullen kleuren !

These friends have been playing together since forever, lazily spreading their positive-vibed kraut pop jams on labels like Lal Lal Lal, Ultra Eczema, Bread and Animals, Breaking World Records or Relax Produzioni. Floating guitars, prehistoric mini rhythms and sunny keyboard tones are the keys of their universe. As Roope Eronen from Avarus wrote: « The wind plays the flute like Buffle their casios, percussions and guitars. So we hear a pure feast of love and joy. Flux of funny sounds meet clumsy and naive repetition in a way that would make Holger Czukay hot of jealousy in his pool ». Future releases on Young Tapes, Goaty Tapes, Future Sounds, Ikuisuus… Buffle also runs the Historiaens imprint.

Cotopaxi is the playful project of Johann (aka Fyoelk) and Hannah (aka Moemlien). These two in Amsterdam living Germans have been making the Amsterdam scene thrive again by organizing concerts, art-shows and making books, prints and releasing tapes and cdrs on the Stenze Quo label. Both schooled at a young age to be free with sound they manage to create interesting compositions almost out of thin air, with great sensitivity for dynamics and balance. Their approach is warm and positive resulting in a ‘good times’ feel that will leave a smile in the hearts of the listener, so in their own way they are making the world a better place.

Besides organizing shows in Den Haag under the Helbaard name and running the label Silver Ghosts, MP has been taking on the alter ego of Matt Hooper Whale Voodoo survivor. « Matt Hooper has been entering the ocean in shark proof cages for most of his professional career, trying to become one with creation by confronting the arch enemy of hope and life personified in the Great White Shark, who’s rows of teeth and age old brute force make every trip down a rebirth, this is the moment to find your voice and embrace the light, forget all there is and transcend… »
