GRAHAM DUNNING & DIRK SERRIES – LIVE IN THE LOWLANDS
(CDR, Raw Tonk Records 2017)
Invited by Raw Tonk Records’ chief Colin Webster, Dirk Serries teamed up with turntablist and sounddesigner Graham Dunning for a series of improvised concerts as part of the Raw Tonk Records’ 5th anniversary events. From the 3 performances this set features two of them, one at De Ruimte in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and the other at a jazzclub De Singer in Rijkevorsel (Belgium). While improvised this definitely moves into different territories : intense soundscapes, drones, bluesy distant guitars and much more. Now available as pre-order from the Raw Tonk Records bandcamp along with two other live releases (Lisle & Webster – Live At De Singer / Ma Ti Om – Live In London).
DIRK SERRIES’ ARTIST IN RESIDENCY : TONUS
Jazzcase at Dommelhof, Neerpelt (B) November 16th 2017
Jazzcase’s curator Cees Van De Ven invited Dirk Serries for an artist in residency. During this 4-day residency Dirk will team up with Colin Webster (sax), Jan Daelman (flute), Nils Vermeulen (double bass), George Hadow (drums) and Martina Verhoeven (piano). Centered around Martina’s piano leitmotif, TONUS is an exercise in modern composing and avantgarde, challenging for both musicians as audience in anticipation, subtility and deep listening. The premiere will take place on Thursday November 16th 2017 at Dommelhof (Neerpelt, Belgium). More info (in Dutch) here. Tickets are available here.
