Wilbert de Joode – solo in your backyard*
This Saturday 23 August, Wilbert de Joode will be performing solo in Westerpark as part of the series of musical performances interacting with the excellent sculpture exhibition of Herbert Nouwens’ – Angels’ Share. If you’ve been following these performances you’ve seen everything from Available Jelly performing their repertoire with guest bass saxophonist Jan Klare, pianist Oscar Jan Hoogland dropping a piano on the concrete (I believe it’s still there) and hacking away at its innards with forks and numb-chucks, to Michael Vatcher enticing his audience to play along with numerous bits of percussion thrown here and there or even a completely soaked John Dikeman squealing on his mouthpiece while biking through the park for an audience of no-one (I guess you didn’t see that one).
Starting at 17:00 next to the twin sculptures just west of Pacific Parc, unless it’s raining in which case he’ll be under the bridge seen in the clip below, Wilbert will be free to move and interact with the sculptures at will. Wilbert is a powerful yet sensitive solo improviser of the highest order so don’t miss it!
