Dirk Serries with Tom Malmendier & Rutger Zuydervelt Epitaph. Live At Roadburn Redux 2021 2LP
Since 1984 Dirk Serries has been pushing sonic boundaries throughout a variation of styles, from the harsh industrialism of the early 80s to his current A New Wave of Jazz label under which he releases free improvised music. Well known for his take on carefully executed and exquisite ambient music, Epitaph is the banner under which he performs with an improvised approach instead. For this special Roadburn performance, he will be creating alongside Tom Malmendier on drums and Rutger Zuydervelt on electronics. Having already collaborated with both previously, but never in this exact configuration, we’re sure to be in for a treat.
Huge harmonic drones will be infused with the abstract dynamics of drums, and the piercing, subliminal electronics to create something truly experimental and improvised. Dirk describes this performance as “the dwelling place, the moment of contemplation; a space to enter and shed off burdens”. We’re ready.
