Double bill from Amsterdam: Spinifex and Gerri Jäger

Netherlands | OM

Explores the contrast between extremely tight irregular structures and extensive free improvisations

With its fearsomely explosive combination of musicians, Spinifex is all about compelling grooves, strong dynamics and challenging improvisations.

Named after a tough Australian species of grass, Spinifex may at first sound like a combination of jazzcore, math-metal and other typically Western contemporary music. However, beneath the surface the listener will discover ancient cyclical rhythms of Turkish and Indian origin.

Gerri Jäger

Semi-structured improvisation and elements of composition using drums, electronics, vintage yamaha keyboard and a drum synthesizer. “The highlight of the first REWIRE festival day was the solo performance by drummer Gerri Jäger, who had wired his kit onto a tangle of electronics. The fact that he knew so well to find his way in a setting in which he processed drums and cymbals and simultaneously operated synthesizers, FX pedals and a mini-keyboard, aroused amazement and admiration. Above all he managed to make exciting music with such virtuosity, and the help of sound engineer Sandor Caron.” Gonzo Circus, Rene van Peer.
