Jerusalem in my heart + Slumberland release show
Experimental cave of wonders forged from Arabic tradition and punk-production.
Radwan Ghazi Moumneh is a musician and a producer. Originally from Lebanon, he has lived in Canada for 25 years. For a month each year, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh returns to his motherland to connect with the Lebanese music scene. With this as his inspiration, since 2005, he has organised unique 'happenings' (for lack of a better word), in collaboration with analogue filmmaker Charles-André Coderre and anywhere from 2 to 25 musicians. In a visual installation of hacked 16 mm film projectors, Jerusalem in My Heart has been amassing a formidable live reputation. In search of a new chapter in the Arabic tradition, this new audiovisual performance mixes classical melismatic (look it up) singing with electronic composition, punk-like production and visual projections of images from the Arab Image Foundation. With their new record, ‘Daqa'iq Tudaiq’, Jerusalem in My Heart is coming to transform our Zilveren Zaal into an electronic cave of wonders!
Slumberland, a.k.a. Jochem Baelus, is a filmmaker and musician who creates installation music. With hairdryers, knitting needles, Super 8 film projectors, drums and grainy raw guitar, he weaves a tapestry of sound with echoes of psych and krautrock. Immerse your ears and eyes in this dreamland!
