Havelok percussion ensemble at re-opening V&D building

Tonight the old V&D building will be opened and the Havelok contemporary percussion quartet will perform there at 20:15h.

The building, at Vrijstraat in the city centre, will be re-opened as Warehouse of Innovation – Eindhoven. The venue will have a new purp

ose and is adapted to the “resilient spirit of the city, this location has reinvented itself into something bigger and better, adapting to the modern, ever-changing pace of Eindhoven,” according to Harm the organiser. Designers, artists and developers will make good use of the large space.

The Havelok ensemble which will perform tonight, was created in Rotterdam by four alumni from ‘Codarts Hogeschool voor de Kunsten’ (school of arts).

Maria, Niels, Emilio and Antonio will present their new project: ‘Innovative Sounds’. A new musical approach that takes conventional music concepts and instruments and ultimately breaks free from these traditions to create a new, transcendent, avant-garde and extravagant sound.

This ensemble is inspired by innovative and contemporary percussion pieces from composers such a Minoru Miki, Theo Lovendie, Thierry de May and Steve Reich among others.

Entrance to the concert is free to the public.
