LABtrio and De Beren Gieren at STORM Festival
In 2015 De Beren Gieren will be working on their new creation “One Mirrors Many". For this creation, the trio has manifested an interest into bringing electronic elements to the trio. They are working on building their own analog effects, loopers, contact microphones which will be used and adapted to the sound of the trio. For the performance, the electronic gear will be triggered live by the musicians to accompany the compositions and improvisations of joyful trio De Beren Gieren. "One Mirrors Many" will be premiered at STORM! Festival (20/02/15, Oostend).
LABtrio started with The New York project when Lander Gyselinck and Bram De Looze lived in New York between 2012 and 2013 and both studied at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary music. Since they came back to Belgium they both had a strong wish to pursue working with fellow New Yorker musicians and so started the LABtrio New York project in collaboration with Michaël Attias (Paul Motian, Anthony Braxton,…) on saxophone and Christopher Hoffman (Henry Threadgill's Zooid, Marc Ribot,…) on cello. They will have their first residency in February 2015 where the quintet will create a repertoire together. This will be premiered on the occasion of STORM! festival (Oostende) and BRAND festival (Mechelen) on the 20th and 21st of February.
