Under the guise of An Interplanetary Night, Space is the Place organizes spectacular evenings, pushing boundaries and crossing borders. With its roots in jazz and improvised music, the program will explore a variety of genres. This edition features no less than seven acts.
Bioluminus is a combustion machine of musical ideas and interaction. This could be called energy music, but deep listening music would also be an apt description. With her voluminous tone and great control over extended techniques, tenor saxophonist Ada Rave will interact with the rhythmic intensity of bassist Aaron Lumley and drummer Onno Govaert.

RUIDOSCURO (AMSTERDAM QUARTET)
Frank Rosaly was formed as a drummer and improviser in Chicago, where over the course of fifteen years he collaborated with influential musicians such as Roscoe Mitchell, Jeff Parker and Dave Rempis. He moved to Amsterdam, where he has become a driving force of the improv scene. Ruidoscuro is a profound research into his native Puerto Rican and Central and South American roots.

THE PAPER ENSEMBLE
A performance by The Paper Ensemble of Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti and Jochem van Tol, using an abundance of handcrafted paper, modular synths, bells and voices. Expect a sonic fabric woven from the smallest and softest sounds we can hear, translucent melodies, baseless oscillations and grounding voltages.

ZEA SOLO DANCE SET
Zea is Arnold de Boer (also The Ex): minimal, full-on, electric, acoustic, eclectic, strange-edge. Deploying guitar and sampler for intense and high energy songs. Urgent lyrics in English and in Frisian (his first language). Intimate, heartfelt and poetic at times; as well as driven on roughshod beats and grimy bass lines. Joyfully obstinate, wonderfully bonkers.
