Minimal Music Festival

3 Apr - 7 Apr - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam
€10 - Free for members

With its five editions in the past, Minimal Music Festival offers an alternative view on experiencing music, seeing it as a physical phenomenon rather than a simply a listening activity. With its outstanding programme, this year’s edition explores the transcendental nature of sound and its impact on our minds. We’re excited to have teamed up with MMF, and present you with a selection of performances which our members can attend for free. Expect “A mind expanding trandenscential trip”.

MMF x DE School

Saturday 6 April, 00:00 – 05:00

Together with the MMF and De school we present a night with live performances by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, Kate NV and Garland. Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, is an Iranian Tombak and Daf player and composer.His performances truly surpass any expectations one can have for a percussion concert. Championing his craft, the now Berlin based virtuoso, sketches a vast network of danceable and upbeat rhythms. Kate NV,  manages to paint a sonic sound arrangement with every track she lays down, by drawing influence from 1980s Japanese pop and musique concrète (among others).  The intoxicating two-piece Garland, consisting of Phillip Jondo and Simon Weins, creates an electroacoustic trip full of slow percussion and slowly dripping bass lines.

Tokyo nightingale Sapphire Slows and Amsterdam’s Philip Jondo will prolong the night with two dj-sets.

Driftmachine- Massive Trance

Saturday 6 April, 18:15 – 0:00

The Berlin duo Driftmachine (Andreas Gerth and Florian Zimmer) presents a reinterpretation of Van Oers’ legendary trance cassette on a surround system, preceded by a conversation by De Apple. Having experienced their modular synth magic before in the intimate setting of De School’s restaurant, we assure you it’ll be an experience unlike any other.
