Friday 14 September 2012 — Saturday 15 September 2012
Overtoom 301, Amsterdam, 1054 HW, Netherlands
Tijdens het festival OTOPIA zal OT301 de verassende alternatieve binnenkant van de stad openstellen aan Amsterdam met film, dans, muziek, performance, kunst, eetcultuur, wandelingen en een debat.
- FRIDAY -
TASHI IWAOKA - Shasin Siko (dance solo) Shasin siko is a movement/dance improvisation combining Iwaoka’s Budo and performance practices for being in the moment with the fullest and deepest awareness of the whole surrounding, as well as a ritual for one’s spiritual growth and making others’ lives fuller.
JIHKAY PROJECT - Happy in 3½ months (dance performance)
Why are we happy? Why aren’t we happy? Can we manufacture it? Or is it something uncontrollable like the weather?
CACTUS TRUCK (music) creates startlingly intense music, not merely in terms of volume or velocity but through complete physical/psychological surrender. One can find hints of early free jazz, Japanese noise, no wave and delta blues in the music.
- SATURDAY -
12:00 - Long Players Music Market
The OT301 will be occupied by local record labels, book labels, private sellers, importers & designers. You'll find select boxes from the city's finest music emporiums (and beyond!) plus books (old and new), zines, synths, clothing, art and more... There’s a good chance you’ll pick up some bargains, meet a few new people, and have a nice afternoon. Don't be afraid to bring friends, there is something for everybody and the vibe is nice...
20:30 (7 euro - free for Subbacultcha members til 23:00)
MMOTHS - One snowy Irish winter not too long ago, a teenage Jack Colleran opted to lock himself indoors and start recording his own music, rather than go out and play in the snow with his friends, and by the end of that school year he’d already signed his first record deal. His enchanting electronica belies his young age, and is warm and inviting enough to attract listeners like mmoths to a flame.
The Haxan Cloak - Meanwhile Bobby Krlic’s solo work as The Haxan Cloak does everything it can, aesthetically speaking, to make you believe it’s witch house (“Haxan” is an old German word for “witch”, for starters), but while the music is indeed dark and mostly instrumental, Krlic’s fascination with drone and nuanced compositions puts his work more in line with groups like Sun O))) and Demdike Stare.
Amsterdam based producer Glass Eyes will be (kick)starting the evening and in between live sets, The Inc. will be spinning some dark pulsating tunes.
