RAT RECORDS Invites: WARPED DREAMER (w/ Arve Henriksen, Jozef Dumoulin, Stian Westerhus and Teun Verbruggen) + JOACHIM BADENHORST SOLO
"A dream line-up is possibly the only way to describe this quartet. Warped Dreamer brings together four key musicians from the Belgian and Norwegian scenes. They will leave it all on the stage, and expect plenty of effects pedals. Their music defies categorisation. If you like improv, this is for you!"
JOACHIM BADENHORST SOLO
"Reedist Joachim Badenhorst's (°1981 Antwerpen) work ranges from solo improvisation, collaborative encounter and project with John Butcher and Paul Lytton, to compositions for his septet Carate Urio Orchestra. After years of academic training, he has since, and continues to, divided his time drifting between Belgium and different cities in the US and Europe. Now, Joachim is delving into a re-imagination of the boundaries between improvisation and composition, of abstract sound explorations and harmonic passage, and continues to attempt at a more intimate and site-specific aesthetic language that can resonate with different audiences. Since two years ago, he started the label KLEIN through which he began to engage himself in visual conceptions and self-made releases and objects."
