The composition by Dirk Bruinsma combines a series of percussion instruments with the enchanting reverb of the organ pipes. These percussion instruments bring a tonal, bell like sound which resonates and echoes throughout the venue. The performers and instruments spread over the room to maximize the use of unique acoustics.
The performers for this occasion: Dirk Bruinsma, Eric de Clerq, Wilbert Bulsink, Tom Myrmel, Anat Spiegel and Bart de Vrees.
Oubys' 25 minutes long composition delicately infuses synth sequences with drum patterns and progressive pulsations to create an awe inspiring melee of sound. The reflections of sound will change and alter to interfere with each other, creating a complex rhythmical pattern to echo and reverberate throughout the space.
Oubys' draws influence from early kraut legends such as Faust, Can and ambient guru Brian Eno. His music has a nice sense of subterrenean depth and a pulsating progression.
