Eric Sleichim + Peter Jacquemyn

Deep, dark and low; FUNDAMENT & Peter Jacquemyn choreograph a small army of bass instruments to explore the lower regions of the sound spectrum, to create an almost spatial audio mass, in which every musician never loses the sound and richness of his/her instrument and to celebrate the underflow. A concert that will last for a long time and an ideal way to indulge in contemporary improvisation brought by an impressive international crew.

FUNDAMENT is a project of draftsman, sculptor and performer Peter Jacquemyn. Jacquemyn’s work brings together the world of music and visual arts. Music is more than accompaniment, the visual is more than decor. As a bassist he has a wide range of possibilities on his instrument. In view of his fascination with the voice experiment, Mongolian throat sounds enter the sound universe of FUNDAMENT.

For FUNDAMENT, Peter Jacquemyn brings together 12 top players including his former partner in crime Eric Sleichim, Blindman’s founder, who has been focusing on a new and exceptional tool, the tubax. The project was selected for the Impuls Series in Belgium 2016 and was part of the official selection of Classical:Next 2018 in Rotterdam.
