Exciting new Belgian-Dutch band founded by multi-instrumentalist Mark Schilders (drums/guitar/synthesizers). ‘Panoramic, transparent improvisations opposite electro-tinged beats’ (NRC).
Fabrik unites four praised young musicians from Belgium and The Netherlands in one new group. It is the brainchild of drummer and composer Mark Schilders, founded in a quest for - to him - key elements in current music: song, stillness, texture, groove and improvisation. Mark Schilders was chosen as a ‘New Maker’ by the Performing Arts Fund NL in 2014. With Fabrik he presented his original compositions at the festival Jazz International Rotterdam.
In relatively short time Mark Schilders has built a sizeable reputation as a drummer in, among others, New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra, The More Socially Relevant Jazz Music Ensemble en Maarten Hogenhuis Trio. He has performed with Jeroen van Vliet, Jesse van Ruller, Gregory Porter and many others. He regularly lives in New York where he studies with Jim Black.
‘Impressive, from the first sounds the venue was enchanted and speechless’ (Slagwerkkrant on Fabrik).
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 til 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
Ticket: € 16 / € 13 (CJP, Student card, Stadspas)
