Sunday 20th October - MANISDRON (JP, Goat/The Noup) + OPTICAL MACHINES at Occii



MANISDRON (JP, Goat/The Noup) + OPTICAL MACHINES + DJ Crew: Misses BGM (CN, JP) + MORE TBC

MANISDRON (GOAT, The NOUP, JP)
Takafumi Okada has played Occii twice over the past years as drummer for Goat & his own band The Noup. Now back and playing solo as Manisdron – a blast of rhythms, electronics and charged vocals.
He uses voice, drums, synthesizers and composed electronic layers to create a solid hypnotic groove. Sometimes it feels poly-rhythmic, sometimes it feels like hammered beat flowing from him freely during his energetic live performance.
As with his band activities (in Noup & Goat since 2017 respectively) there is a strong influence of Post Punk, EBM and Krautrock. In the past, he self-released 2 EPs as CD and a cassette. Takafumi also books experimental shows in his hometown of Okayama.

OPTICAL MACHINES
Optical Machines make a pure, authentic impression by combining their creations of sound (scapes) and visuals. Rather than (taking) a static position with flashy laptops they choose an open set-up which invites the audience to their laboratory-like playground. Their set-up contains an obscure variety of modified record players, pattern models, lamps, lenses, cameras and analogue synthesizers to make a both trippy and fascinating show. Optical Machines is a real live show with visuals and sound created on the spot….

Sunday 1st July 2018 - OCCII




The Noup (JP) :  The band of Japanese math rhythm outfit Goat's percussionist, Takafumi Okada . This Okayama based trio perform for the first time in Amsterdam. Their sound mainly comprises of nerve edge guitar pulses backed with a solid and reptitive rhythm section into which they weave voices to create a unique driving groove. Recently they have adopted analog synthesizers and play more polyrhythmic minimal songs unlike dance music.

Thursday 20th November - Bear Bones Lay Low & Weird Dust


Bear Bones Lay Low (Kraak, BE)  + Weird Dust (Kerm, BE)


Following on from last months show with Antwerp's Dolphins Into The Future + Monopoly Child Star Searchers - it's the turn of another couple of madly talented Belge dwellers to descend into the back room. This time we have solo electronic performances from the members of Brussels based Tav Exotic. Both maintain high levels of psychedelic channeling, concentrated into minimal yet expressive equipment setups. Another good one.

Door:9pm
Entry: 5 Euros
