Jens Maurits Orchestra


Wednesday 21 January 2015 / 20:30 / Intro (werkplaats),

The compositions of Jens Bouttery translate processes of evolution, consciousness and the mechanics of our brain into music. Like chunks of dna and melodies cling onto each other and gain in complexity at each step. As this game of evolution unravels itself, the musicians transform into a roost of quarrelling birds, a group of grooming apes and a bunch of pulsing neurons in the auditory cortex. Leading thinkers of this collective are Jens Bouttery, drummer/composer and Daan Milius, videomaker. Storyteller Dougie Eynon cites the adventures of Jean-Godefroy. Lucas Kramer’s installation will visually translate memory and rewrite it to the present.
