MYRIADS 13 DNK Ensemble, Arvind Ganga


The DNK Ensemble is a flexible group of artists centered around the (former) concert series for avant-garde, “down town”, music, sound art, and performance: DNK-Amsterdam organized by Seamus Cater, Koen Nutters and Martijn Tellinga which currently lives on as the record shop: Nearly Not There Records and will soon be revived from it’s slumber.

Tonight’s performance by Cater, Nutters, and Tellinga is a new version of a piece they developed and performed for the art show: Things To Remember (Page Not Found) in 2016. It involves (amongst other things) memories, anecdotes, simultaneous remote recordings, and islands of slowly moving sound sustained by harmona organ, concertina and electronic tones.

Arvind Ganga is a guitar player from Den Haag, the Netherlands. He takes a physical approach to guitar playing, employing objects and extended techniques to explore new sonic possibilities. His music draws from influences as diverse as noise and drones, North Indian ragas, experimental rock, and everyday sounds. With free improvisation he brings these together into an intense, loosely structured, chaotic mesh that is bathing in the rays of a deep red sun. Ethereal noise with a punk-improv attitude.
