Els Vandeweyer is a Belgian vibraphonist & composer currently living in Berlin. After studying classical percussion at the Royal Flemish Conservatory in Antwerp and jazz at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and Musikhogskule in Oslo, she traveled to Portugal, where she co-founded the IMI Kollektief quintet (whose critically acclaimed debut album, “Snug as a Gun”, was released on Clean Feed in 2006), as well as Chicago, where she played with Ken Vandermark.

In Berlin, Vandeweyer remains heavily involved in the improvised music community. Current projects include work with Ute Wassermann, Georg Graewe, Fred van Hove/Paul Lovens/Martin Blume, Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra, children's theater projects and solo performance.

"Unafraid of tradition... Vandeweyer's vibes evoking the experimental zeal of the more adventurous 1960's Prestige and Blue Note sessions." – All About Jazz.


Els Vandeweyer | Live at Ohrengala





Kazue Taguchi and Annette Krebs will perform together a premiere for Ohrengala. It will be a live performance installation for one speaker with light/shadowstructures and objects moving slowly through the room.

Annette Krebs arbeitet im Bereich der elektroakustischen Musik an Mischungen von Klängen und Geräuschen unter Einbeziehung von Sprachmaterial und konkreten Bedeutungsebenen, die so aufgebaut sind, dass alle beteiligten Parameter gleichberechtigt erscheinen. Collagiert treten Sprachfragmente, Wortfetzen, Bruchstücke aus Außenaufnahmen in ihrer Musik auf und mischen sich mit tonal und rhythmisch frei angeordneten Klängen, Geräuschen und Stille.
Seit 2009 entwickelt sie Kompositionen für mehr als zwei unabhängig voneinander, meist live bespielte Lautsprecher und thematisiert die Akustik des Konzertraumes selbst als wichtiges musikalisches Parameter. Sie arbeitet solistisch, im musikalischen und intermedialen Bereich in verschiedenen Besetzungen und Ensembles und entwickelt Kompositionen für Performer/innen und Lautsprecher.

KAZUE TAGUCHI | light/shadowstructures


Kazue Taguchi, born in Japan, lives and works in Berlin. In 1997 she finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Oilpainting and Lithograph Print in Japan. And in 2007 studied the Master of Fine Arts, Glass, at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
"Kazue Taguchi's art and objects are a beautiful question in light and shadow with which she works in an impressive way. Her objects could range from massive to fragil metal and other material she decide to use for each installation, giving new meanings and creating new abstract light-situations of space magic and a own special world. We are looking forward to be with her flying shadows"

In collaboration with Bei Roy.
Curated by CoCo

Ohrengala (March 2011 - ) is a regular experimental serie organised at Bei Roy and curated by CoCo. The main idea of the series was to bring a wide spectrum of musicians and sound concepts in a monthly event mixture of electroacoustic, conceptual improvisation and noise music... Bei Roy is not the typical venue only for experimental music. It's a chance to offer interested people this form of music in a hopefully good way. After an invitation to join the series as collaborators in february 2012, Julian Bonequi and Audition Records supported the Ohrengala series as promoters and associate curators.
