Uli Rehberg is one of the trailblazers of the experimental ‘Hamburg-scene’. Besides his own enigmatic musical and non-musical activities as Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg, he has been releasing important records by a.o. SPK, Throbbing Gristle, Asmus Tietchens and Werkbund through his legendary Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien imprint.
Timo van Luijk (a.k.a. Af Ursin) releases his immersive and poetic sound works as beautifully executed limited editions on his own label La Scie Dorée. He is also active in numerous collaborational projects with the likes of Christoph Heemann, Andrew Chalk, Frederik Croene, …
Van Luijk and Euler-Donnersperg started working together in 2011 at the Brombron series curated by Frans de Waard. Since then they do occasional live electro-acoustic text-sound performances with use of voice, objects, acoustic instruments and electronics, modified record players and tape machines.
Frederik Croene has developed a rich experimental practice of improper use of the piano, whether by expanding its range with the help of technology or by deconstructing its mechanics. After his rather intense encounter with the organ on ‘F.C. Me Fecit’, which appeared last year on B.A.A.D.M., Frederik Croene will channel another wind-driven instrument: the Hammond-organ.
In the past two years, Mathieu Serruys has been performing extensively with the eroded melodic textures from his tape- and synth-driven debut album ‘On Germaine Dulac’, which also marked the start of B.A.A.D.M. as an active label. While not wandering too far from his distinctive approach, also some new sonic territories will be explored now.
