triple deck

another unusual kapotski release . Kapotski is a live plastic & electric impro trio. Its energy and singularity arise from the magic of playing together, from the dynamics that emerges between the three musicians Jonas Nachtergaele, Ruben Nachtergaele and Kurt Stockman. Triple Deck is  a release/installation that represents Kapotski in its purest form. For a week Jonas,…

Ding

The show starts with the construction of the ‘Thing’, with several men in grey coats deciphering complicated plans, measuring the space and marking out the lines. In this way, at the tempo of the average council worker, the ‘Thing’ gradually takes shape. The musicians arrive and set up their instruments, the technical staff take their…

kabuski

Voor het Yo opera festival in Utrecht (NL), ontwikkelde kapotski ‘kabuski’.

In Kabuski mag en kan wat anders niet kan en mag: spelen en al…

JCCC / etoiles polaires / Nuuk

The next step for me & my toy army.  The  Jesus Creation Control Centre invades Nuuk, Greenland. Again not much of a resistance here. Temperature dough was not so ideal; but we survived.

Within the etoiles polaires festival  – and more particulary the project ‘Sonic Pictures’ – I worked on the next fase of the Jesus Creation Control Centre.

kapotski

“The trio Jonas Nachtergaele, Ruben Nachtergaele, and Kurt Stockman, aka Kapotski have become quite infamous for (re)appropriating unexpected technologies and artefacts for the creation of music. Kapotski (derived from the Dutch word for broken ‘kapot’) have elevated hacked toys, reverse engineered junk, and the peep and squeak of pre-historic kitchen and household appliances to an art form:…
