AFTER MIDNIGHT: DJ PLUTONES & DJ PETER KOK

The annual New Year’s Eve celebration at the Bimhuis starts with fireworks by an illustrious quartet starring Benjamin Herman, Peter Beets, Ruud Jacobs en Han Bennink. The party becomes cosmic thanks to Astronotes and their tribute to Sun Ra, who would have turned 100 in 2014. Plus, of course, DJs, bubbles and oliebollen!

The groundbreaking American composer and keyboard player Sun Ra was named after an Egyptian sun god and was purported to have come from Saturn. His legendary Arkestra big band combined jazz with electronica, modern classical and Arabian influences, dance and flamboyant costumes.

The ten-piece ensemble Astronotes, led by trombone player Joost Buis follows the line that runs from Duke Ellington to Sun Ra: imaginative orchestrations full of warmth and performed in a personal style by top class musicians.

‘Controlled anarchy is a code these Astronotes fly by. They play Joost Buis’ tunes clean and true, and still let weird details nibble at the edges’ (Kevin Whitehead, NPR).
