3 tips week 26

kidjo remain in light
Vanavond in Grounds @ Annabel (Rotterdam): Seun Kuti & Egypt 80. Zondag 1 juli (16u) bij Pllek Amsterdam: Togo All Stars. En: Angelique Kidjo heeft mijn alltime favoriete Talking Heads album Remain in light in zijn geheel gecovered. Ik weet nog niet wat ik ervan denk, maar oordeel zelf. (nb: afrobeat alfabet uit het parool, 2008 hier)

polaroid chemistry

Willem Baptist made a wonderful, multilayered ode to polaroid photography and the mystique of chemistry: Instant Dreams (NL, 2017, 54 min). Recommended.

Music for mallet instruments, voices and organ (Steve Reich, 1973)

Just came across this fantastic version of Steve Reich’s Music for mallet instruments, voices and organ (1973), by ensemble Alarm will Sound. I can vividly imagine this music to sound during the creation of a universe – or two.

Great interview (in Dutch, Groene Amsterdammer, 1985) by Frits van der Waa here.
