An Intergalactic Night: Ferry Heijne, Luc Ex, Ben van Gelder, Yuri Landman, Ernst Glerum

The groundbreaking Intergalactic Nights offer a kaleidoscope of art forms. This edition features Ferry Heijne (De Kift), Luc Ex, Yuri Landman, Ben van Gelder and house pianist Ernst Glerum.

Space is the Place organizes groundbreaking bimonthly Intergalactic Nights at the BIMHUIS café, with a wide variety of performances in all kinds of genres and disciplines, from jazz, improv and classical music to dance, theater, poetry and literature. The house pianist is Ernst Glerum, who’s known playing double bass in ICP Orchestra and Benjamin Herman Trio.

This edition: Ferry Heijne, lead singer, guitarist and trumpeter of De Kift, forms a duo with bassist Luc Ex, playing new versions of De Kift-songs. Yuri Landman, who built deviant string instruments for, among others, Sonic Youth, Liars and Jad Fair, will give a performance. Additionally, a solo set by Ben van Gelder, who was trained in New York and whose lyrical playing has been compared to that of his teacher – and legend – Lee Konitz.

Since 2015, Space is the Place organizes concerts with free forms of jazz as a common thread. Its homebase is De Ruimte in Amsterdam-Noord: a record store, café, restaurant, venue and living room rolled into one. After more than 600 concerts by around 1100 artists, Space is the Place now regularly spreads its wings towards the BIMHUIS.
