Two Evil Rabbit Records artists, Robert van Heumen (ERR 12 Abattoir) and Albert van Veenendaal (co-founder of ERR) made new recordings after playing a concert in de Pont, the famous museum of contemporary art in Tilburg, The Netherlands. They explore the combination of Prepared Piano and Live Electronics. The Berts, as they call themselves, are considering releasing their music in due coarse.
This January Veenendaal/Kneer/Sun (ERR #04) invited Belgian trumpet wizzard Bart Maris for a short tour. A refreshing new initiative well received by the audience and to be continued in September this year in a double bill with Spoon 3 (ERR #05) with as a fourth member Laptop instrumentalist Robert van Heumen. Plans for new cd’s of these projects are in the works.
Today the sad news reached us that Jack Lina, dedicated programmer and organizer for the Bethanienklooster in Amsterdam, died last Wednesday. He was 57 years old. Jack was a wonderful guy with a warm heart an open mind and a great sense of humor. He made many things possible for our projects, and we are very grateful for that, but even more so for his friendship. Thank you Jack!
This autumn we will release A Cool Tree, a tribute to Lysander le Coultre (cello) Not only was Lysander our very dear friend, imaginative graphic designer and driving force behind Evil Rabbit Records, he also was a passionate musician. Every note he played breathed his warm personality and temperament and he was about to go places with his rediscovered love for music. on january 29, 2009 he died suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving us all in shock. This cd, recorded on a Sunday afternoon late autumn 2008, is a tribute to a beautiful man. the spontaneous improvisations Lysander and Albert played that day are colorful and vivid. they will keep the spirit of his original talent alive.
