Astrid Sonne, Tashi Wada Group, Pierre Bastien & Tomaga at Rewire 2019


There were many memorable performances at Rewire 2019, and we were lucky to have Concertzender on hand to record a few stand-outs that really captured the spirit of the festival. In case you missed Concertzender’s broadcast of these recordings on the 13th of November, performances from Astrid Sonne, Tashi Wada Group and Pierre Bastien & Tomaga are all now available to listen to in full on Rewire’s Soundcloud page. We will be releasing more recordings of performances in the lead-up to the Rewire 2020, our tenth festival edition.

Navigating repetition and renewal, analogue and digital, Astrid Sonne crafts mesmerising worlds of sound that blend intense synth bass stabs and throbs with gripping melodies and lush, organic textures. At Rewire 2019, she presented the first performance of a new work entitled ‘Cycles of Lost and Found’ accompanied by the trio of Yanna Pelser (viola), George Dumitriu (viola) and Jan Willem Troost (cello). Listen to the recording of her performance in the Lutheran Church on 29th March here:


Drawing on forms of ancient and devotional music, psychoacoustics, and the minimalist bagpipe music of his father – renowned Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada – Tashi Wada creates an endless night of dreams that is full of joys and demons. For his latest project, Tashi Wada Group, he enlisted the talents of Julia Holter and Corey Fogel to perform their collaborative album, ‘Nue’. Check out the full recording of their performance on 29th March here:


The unique musical setup of French composer and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Bastien has garnered him a cult-like following. Dubbed the ‘mad musical scientist’, his self-built machineries sit at the nexus of music and visual art and poetically blend live trumpet sounds with screen projections of his own mechanical sculptures. At Rewire 2019 Bastien was joined by Tomaga, the darkly psychedelic, London-based duo of Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen, to perform in the Koorenhuis.
