Doors open 15:00
Meakusma Open Doors w/ Silzedrek
On Sunday, November 19th, we will inaugurate our new office in the center of Eupen with a concert by Silzedrek and some very affordable drinks. We are very excited to finally have an office again and are happy to show you our new space just before we move in all our stuff and make it the new center of all things Meakusma. For the past few weeks, we have been working almost nonstop to make sure our new workspace is comfortable and accessible. So come Sunday, swing by! Entrance is free.
Silzedrek is one of many alter egos of Australian artist Tarquin Manek, this one conceived to explore clarinet and bass clarinet in a live setting utilizing the Eastern European and Roma sonorities stemming from Manek’s heritage. Central to the current Australian underground scene, Manek is adept at employing higher dub logic to the rough juxtapositions and seemingly abrupt left turns his performances can take, presenting a deeply personal synthesis of time-dilating folk-jazz romanticism, heavy chamber dub, and a sense of smoked-out inner space. He is a member of Kallista Kult and has produced and mixed work for Carla dal Forno, YL Hooi, and Jonnine Standish of HTRK. His solo work has been released on Blackest Ever Black and A Colourful Storm.
