juxtaposition, n. - an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast


Oerknal teams up with modern jazz trio De Beren Gieren for an unforgettable set of concerts! Opting for juxtaposition as opposed to fusion, we present two distinct, raw, and visceral musical styles side-by-side, creating a schizophrenic soundscape for the listener. De Beren Gieren will perform two sets of original material; Oerknal will present music by contemporary composers inspired - to a greater or lesser extent - by popular genres, including John Zorn, Lewis Nielson, and Mark Barden. The centerpiece of these concerts will be a new work created by Oerknal and De Beren Gieren, performed by the two groups simultaneously. Concerts in Paard van Troje's "State-X New Forms Festival" in The Hague and the Bimhuis in Amsterdam.
