Monoták is a collective of composers and performers based in Amsterdam. For the second edition of the Echokamer they experimented with Mediamatic Fabriek's reverberant walls and high ceilings.

Paul Glazier - Compression

A 78rpm record starts to play on an old, hand-cranked gramophone player. A mic records the music interacting with the surroundings. This is delayed, played back, and compressed, the acoustics of the space feeding back into itself.

Pandelis Diamantides - #008000

Bleeps, microsounds and infrabass. A taste of paradise in binary language. With visuals by Emmanuel Flores Elias.

Light Metal Duo

Light Metal Duo uses the resonating qualities of aluminum foil in combination with a personal sonic approach to their instruments. They work on structured improvisation ranging from drone-like clusters to pulsating, rhythmic patterns.

More information

Echokamer is a series of events during which composers, musicians and other sound-makers experiment with sound at, and with the sound of, Mediamatic Fabriek. The giant industrial hall echoes and erodes, and furthermore produces quite a bit of sound itself. The perfect place for noisy experiments. Address: VOC-kade 10-12, Oostenburg Amsterdam. Dinner will be served at 18:30. The performances start at 20:15. Tickets are €2,- (only valid in combination with a Club Mediamatic membership). Subbacultcha members get in for free.
