Patrick Higgins (AEAEA)

AEAEA

Curated by Patrick Higgins; in cooperation with Gaudeamus AEAEA is a new duo ensemble of composers and performers Patrick Higgins and Nicolas Jaar. The aim of the group is to develop immersive musical environments, sonorous desert islands that both react to and redevelop against the live compositions that utilize live instruments and computers. Both Higgins and Jaar will resample and reprocess each other’s instruments in real time — unfolding a new vision of modern ritual music and electroacoustic experimentation.

Arp Frique presents Improvised Suites For Analog Machines With a super contagious cocktail of Afrobeat, disco and funk, Arp Frique is the past, present and future scrambled together in one groovy, bright-lit musical skirmish. The Dutch producer’s new live project Improvised Suites For Analog Machines presents a tribute to some of the most influential synthesizers of the 70s and 80s. This free-spirited music is performed with Surinamborn keyboardist Erik “Keysie” Ritfeld as its main catalyst, a prodigal force in The Arp Frique Family and former collaborator of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Michael Franti and Aston Barrett.
