Echokamer 17: Drone 2.0 & Micro miking

With Mars F. Wellink, Oguz Büyükberber and Tobias Klein

10 May 2014

For Lightness, artist Rob Sweere built a new work called Drone 2.0. Made of wood and speakers, the sound that comes from it makes the Mediamatic Fabriek shake. Mars F. Wellink will use the Drone and the voice of Rob Sweere as a starting point for his performance. Oguz Büyükberber and Tobias Klein have an almost scientific approach of sound. They zoom in on the very grains of sonic textures to explore microscopical structures by using extended techniques and very close miking.


Oguz Büyükberber and Tobias Klein performing - Oguz Büyükberber and Tobias Klein have been playing together since 2005. Using extended techniques and very close miking, they zoom in on the very grains of sonic textures to explore microscopical structures. On the other hand, they both have a liking for extroverted and sentimental gestures.

Mars F. Wellink made soundtracks for performances and installations of a lot of artists. He is working together with Rob Sweere for many years now. See for his discography: (ad)VANCE(d)

Oguz Büyükberber plays the (bass) clarinet. He is a multi-talented artist with an interest in visual arts that dates back to his childhood. He creates his own style of music influenced by Classical Western music, Turkish music and jazz.

(Bass-) clarinet player and saxophonist Tobias Klein focusses mainly on improvised music, but he has also studied contemporary composed music and techniques derived from African, Eastern European and Asian music as well as live-electronics.
Tobias is one of the founding members of the Amsterdam-based music collective and record label TryTone.


In an age where everyone is affected by the weight of society, the overbearing fears of the economy and the heavy hand of government, 'lightness' is the way forward. Let go of the material and celebrate the ethereal with 11 weeks of 'lightness'. Each week Mediamatic invites a new artist to question the meaning of 'lightness'.
