Programme

Brad Henkel (DE) and Jacob Wick (USA) present metal fluctuations An extended use of the trumpet together with Jasper Stadhouders, Frank Rosaly & Thomas Myrmel.

Brand Henkel en Jacob Wick spelen beiden de trompet, een instrument dat begin 20ste eeuw haar huidige vorm heeft gevonden. Gemaakt van een metalen buis van 1.48 meter, dubbel gevouwen en tweemaal onderbroken door piston ventielen die de verschillen in lengte van de buis reguleren.
Normaal gesproken versterkt deze buis een kleine stroom spit die door de lippen van de trompettist beheerst wordt. Deze buis kan natuurlijk ook andere stromen van spit versterken, creëert door andere houdingen van de lippen. De buis kan ook ingekort zijn door verschillende gedeeltes van het instrument te vervangen waardoor de boventonen van de versterkte klank veranderen, inadems, uitadems, spitstromingen van allerlei soorten. Lippen en buizen kunnen elkaar op diverse manieren beïnvloeden. Jacob Wick en Brad Henkel genieten hier ontzettend van.

JACOB WICK

Jacob Wick is a trumpet player and improviser. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Wick has lived in Brooklyn, Oakland, and Los Angeles, and has performed with a variety of improvisers and composers in a variety of contexts, including at the Whitney Museum of American Art (US), the Moers Jazz Festival (DE), and el Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MX). He has performed with Toshimaru Nakamura, Bonnie Jones, Katherine Young, Andrew D’Angelo, Josh Roseman, and many others. He has released recordings on Prom Night Records (Brooklyn, NY), Peira (Chicago, IL), Diatribe (Dublin, IE), and Creative Sources (Lisbon, PT). He holds a BM from Purchase College, SUNY, and an MFA from the California College of the Arts.

In performance, Wick works to privilege the perspective, experience, and expressive capacities of ambient non-human actorsair ducts, airplanes, birds, cementover his own experience as a white, cis, American male. This approach is indebted to a wild commitment to queer politics and years of cruising contemporary and 20th century art and/or life theories. Current projects include solo trumpet performance, listening and/or visualization exercises, and Dos/Tres Hongos, a duo or trio with Marc Riordan and Frank Rosaly.

THOMAS MYRMEL

Thomas Myrmel is a composer / performer and co-founder of Splendor.

His compositions have been performed throughout Europe, the USA, the Middle East and Japan.

Brad Henkel and Jacob Wick both play the trumpet, an instrument invented in its contemporary form at the turn of the 20th century that consists of a 1.48 meter metal tube turned twice interrupted by set of piston valvesas in a pneumatic cannon or a locomotivethat regulate modifications in the length of the tube. Traditionally, the tube amplifies a focused stream of spit produced by the pursed lips of the trumpet player. The tube however can also amplify unfocused streams of spit, produced by other arrangements of the lips. The tube itself can be shortened by the removal of various removable slides, shifting the overtone series of amplified soundsfocused or unfocused streams of spit, weak exhalations or strong inhalationsand occasionally the direction of those sounds. Lips and tubes can interact in a variety of ways. Jacob Wick and Brad Henkel enjoy this.
