ROBERTA WJM | mix, cd, md, mic, electronics

Roberta WJM Andreucci is a percussionist, an experimental producer and DJ, and on air personality. She has more than twenty year of experience organizing and promoting alternative music events. She practices plagiarism and the cutting and mixing of musical and ambiental aural sources. Early in her career she started focusing on the use of voices and on vocal metalinguism, focalizing on her personal practice of “cuttingandslicing” and on rhythm patterns obtained through an improper use of her tools of the trade (cdjs, cd player, md, me mixer). Through the years her percussion set morphed into a hybrid encompassing a dj booth, a radio dj one, a microphone station for electroacustic experiments, and a mnemonic butcher’s slab. She is a founding member of performing music units such as Jealousy Party, Semerssuaq, and Sistemi Audiofobici Burp. She is the director of the music label Burp Publications.

In Berlin, Vandeweyer remains heavily involved in the improvised music community. Current projects are “Quat” with Fred Van Hove, Paul Lovens and Martin Blume, (“Quat-Live at Hasselt”, was released on NoBusinessrecords, Vilnius 2013) and Pascal Niggenkemper’s “Vision 7″ (“Lucky Prime”, Clean Feed, 2013)

ANAIS TUERLINCKX | Broken Piano II

“I believe in Noise as a richer musical source than tones. I want to reveal the physicality of the piano as a dirty monster. I expect the audience to shiver with me thanks to the vibes from inside the piano. Music as a channel for the exchange of fluids and energies in the most direct way possible. The piano is not an instrument but a partner that helps me express the unspeakable.
I feel I want to get absorbed by and take the audience into the noise (as I feel when I listen to some concerts by others) and a wall of sound where you cannot really distinguish the sources of the sound, where everything is melting into an impossible cry, when you feel like many voices are screaming but there are no voices, when you come into trance and you begin to get sonic hallucinations, when your body shakes from the extreme loudness and power of the basses, when music is liberating destruction. Of course these words are strong and it is probably an utopia to get there but I want to believe in it and work harder to slowly move in this direction.”
