Connector XVI: Mark IJzerman, Grafwerk, Hans van Koolwijk
Connector is our monthly event where experimental electronic music meets sound art. Every first Thursday of the month we invite either established or fresh starting artists to experiment on our stage. For this edition we have Mark IJzerman with his new A/V performance, Grafwerk with Sannety & Gerri Jäger, and an ensemble playing compositions by Bart Spaan.
Mark IJzerman is a Dutch media artist, designer, researcher and lecturer. His works explore human perception and the interconnectedness of the senses, often starting from sound.
He will be playing Cantus Viscous (2017), an A/V-performance in which the concept of pareidolia is explored.
It’s a live-set consisting of a performance with four-track tape recorders, endless cassettes, a modular synth, home made spring reverbs, a modified Space Echo and a homemade software video synthesizer.
Grafwerk (Sannety & Gerri Jäger) will present the result of a 3 day STEIM residency, in which they developed new work for live set-explorations. This is a duo of two drummers; one playing percussive sounds with an electronic instrument, and the other playing electronic sounds with an acoustic instrument.

Bass Boxes & Sounding Porcelain
Hans van Koolwijk is a renowned sound artist and builder of experimental musical instruments. Since 1986 he has been working in the space between visual art and music. The “bass boxes” – built by Van Koolwijk in collaboration with composer and sound artist Hans van Eck – consist of four bamboo flutes. They produce sound by the action of two powerful bass speakers. These speakers act as electric air pumps that direct precisely calibrated gusts of air into the four flutes and thereby create rhythmic patterns. They will collaborate this evening with Bart Spaan and Igor Urruchi.
