Jasper Stadhouders’ PolyBand
Gaudeamus Muziekweek
Saturday 7 September
TivoliVredenburg – Cloud Nine
22:30 – 00:00

“For years guitarist Jasper Stadhouders has been a sensation on the Amsterdam and international free improvisation scene, but his ambitions extend further. Gaudeamus is glad to help him realize his dreams by commissioning a work to be performed by his PolyBand. With PolyBand he brings together a large group of musician friends of his for a dizzying, unstoppable cocktail of krautrock, mathcore, cumbia and more. The gigantic band keeps switching between tight control and total surrender, in a 90-minute-long hypnotizing composition which could just as easily last 6 hours.

Third up in See you at The Market: Harald Austbø.
Harald Austbø is known for his creative and original contributions to the theater and music worlds as actor, singer and cellist. He is freakishly talented, equally at home serving the bass role in a jazz group as playing thoroughly notated melodic lines. Quite often, he’ll do both at the same time whilst beatboxing or improvising nonsense rap over top. Something of a highly dependable wild-card, he manages to provide rock solid support to any ensemble he performs with yet remain spontaneous, drawing on a wealth of influences from jazz, classical, rock, pop, samba, hip hop, spoken word, poetry, theater, performance art and improvisation of all sorts.
