Rewire x Korzo is the new collaboration between The Hague-based festival for adventurous music, Rewire, and contemporary dance and music venue, Korzo. The organizations have joined forces to put on a series of dynamic concert nights centred on new music and performance. Rewire now presents the exclusive Dutch premiere of HEXA with David Lynch’s ‘Factory Photographs’, a dynamic live soundtrack of David Lynch photographs by Xiu Xiu frontman Jamie Stewart and Australian composer Lawrence English.
Rewire x Korzo is supported by Fonds21.
Following up his acclaimed performance of Twin Peaks with Xiu Xiu at Rewire 2016, frontman Jamie Stewart joins Australian ambient composer Lawrence English as HEXA to score another iconic David Lynch work, ‘Factory Photographs’. Originally commissioned for the ‘David Lynch: Between Two Worlds’ exhibition, HEXA use field recordings and a wealth of droning, experimental electronics to produce a dynamic live soundtrack that channels the post-industrial atmospheres of David Lynch’s photographs, and effectively places their audience inside the landscapes of disused factories and industrial ruins. HEXA recently released their full-length debut, ‘Factory Photographs’, ten songs of imposing industrial soundscapes that heavily resonate with David Lynch’s own, seminal soundtrack to 'Eraserhead’.
Hailed as one of ambient music’s modern masters, Lawrence English is a Brisbane-based composer, media artist and founder of leading avant-garde label Room40. Exploring notions of perception, memory and sonic affect across a wide array of creative forms, Lawrence English uses a broad palette of live instrumentation, field recordings and electronics to craft provocative listening experiences that are reminiscent of the heavier sides of Ben Frost and Tim Hecker. At Rewire x Korzo #5, Lawrence performs excerpts from his forthcoming album, “Cruel Optimism”, to be released by Room40 on 17 February.
Zeno van den Broek
Originally trained as an architect, Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch-born, Copenhagen-based composer and visual artist whose works explore the relation between musical forms, architectural structures and spatial awareness. Employing pure sound sources such as sine waves and white noise, and minimal visual aesthetics such as grids and lines, Zeno van den Broek develops site-specific patterns of interference that combine and synthesize sound, projections and space into textural masterpieces. At Rewire x Korzo #5, Zeno van den Broek presents his new audiovisual work ‘Shift Symm’.
