ONLINE EXPOSITION

Because of reasons we all know, Clash Festival will return next year on 10 & 11 April 2021. But just because you weren’t able to visit Clash Festival doesn’t mean we couldn’t come to you. On 11 April Clash entered your living room with an online expo and (live) stream program. We’ve uploaded all the material on this page for you to re-experience CLASH 2020!

EDWIN VAN DER HEIDE

Shape - KWS (soundscape)

Edwin was supposed to create one of the biggest installations of Clash in the main room of Grand Theatre. Luckily he could offer an alternative for our stream by creating a trippy soundscape. Listen to this with your headphones on and see where it takes you. 

HELEEN BLANKEN

HABITAT (video teaser)

Prepare for an otherworldly experience! Replacing the real-life experience is a video teaser of Heleen Blanken’s fully data-driven installation HABITAT. HABITAT documents and visualizes natural growth based on 3D scans. For this project Heleen joined forces with NAIVI, who developed the custom-built software for the installation and sound artist Stijn van Beek who composed the soundscapes. Next year we will showcase the life size HABITAT experience in the awesome Rabo Studio in Forum Groningen. We recommend you watch this video full screen with headphones.

NOTE: The video will be available until Saturday 18 April!

 

TobyLikesMilk

ISOLATION (premiere)

A queer performance company based in Berlin. It’s thought provoking, innovative and unapologetically loud. We love how TobyLikesMilk confronts us and makes us reflect on the world and the wonderfully weird people inhabiting it. Enjoy their new 4-part performance series “Isolation”!

F.U.N.C.

LIVE AT OOST

Finnish Ukrainian Netherlandish Congolese R&B Duo F.U.N.C. playing live at OOST treating us to a fierce mix of folky future R&B. Chai Blaq performing songs from their recently released debut EP Kintsugi, which was included in the top 5 best EP’s of the year by Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

PHOLE

LIVE AT OOST

Abstract beats, melancholic chord progressions and layered, percussive, grooves; Phole creates a refreshing style that pushes the boundaries of nu jazz, down tempo and trip hop. From his basement in a former biological research center he is constantly experimenting with acoustic instruments, field recordings and worn out second-hand synths. He just released his new track “The Waiting Game” which he celebrated with a live solo set in OOST!

MATTEO MYDERWYK

Synth set

If you visited Clash last year there’s a good chance you saw him hypnotizing people. We were glad to have Matteo with us again, even if it was just via the digital domain. Enjoy Matteo’s 30-minute synth set he recorded at home. 

♥ Support Matteo Myderwyk by buying his vinyl album ‘Parabels’ for € 30. Just get in touch with Matteo through PM on Facebook.

Hilde Onis

Work in progress (i.c.w. Het Resort)

Hilde’s art installations make you stop and think twice. Oftentimes she incorporates performance into her pieces. Despite her not being able to exhibit her work at Clash Festival, Hilde takes us into her studio with these photos. In cooperation with Het Resort. Enjoy this unique preview of her work!

CREATIVE MINDS

WATCHLIST | ONLINE EXPO | I.C.W. STUDIUM GENERALE

The outbreak of the coronavirus demands creative thinking: we work at home, get together with friends online and we follow online courses. Not being able to get together to visit a concert hall, museum or theatre, we also have to look for alternative ways to experience art. Time for Studium Generale Groningen to look into their archives for lectures on the power of art and creativity and share them with you.

BLEEDING EDGE 2020 (A/V set)

South London-based post-genre music and performing arts duo c / a brought us their thrilling live cinematic A/V experience Bleeding Edge. It’s a study of humankind, blood loss, non-verbal communication, an abysmal future vs. salvation, virtual rave culture and internet entities that intertwines with a network of ideas and stories. And to make it even more special: this was the online premiere!

KETTEL

DWINGELOO LIFE EXTENSION | EXPO

Kettel returns with a full ambient album and that’s a real special treat knowing that this is only his second ambient album; the first one being the legendary Volleyed Iron, released in 2004. Once you get to know Dwingeloo Life Extension, there’s a lo-fi, buzzy intimacy to it. A great addition to our online exposition. 

DJ Spoorbiels

LEFT LANE AFTERPARTY | 19:00

Closing the online experience was our very own DJ Spoorbiels playing a set from his living room in Groningen!  For this set DJ Spoorbiels is trying to avoid Facebooks’ copyright algorhythms by not playing anything by Beyonce, Backstreet Boys or Bonnie Tyler.
