Microwave Club Night @ Floor10

Club night

We are taking over this new club on the block called Floor 10, a temporary intimate space catering our cravings for club spaces and experiment in Brussels. There’s only 10 weeks of Floor 10, so surely you don’t want to miss this.

Stoemp! Curated by Microwave: Echofarmer (solo) + Bruno x Moene + Essi

Concert

In collaboration with Stoemp we will curate an evening at Café Flora in Sint-Gillis!

From soft and fluffy to sharp and angular, echofarmer (Arne Nuyts) merges his inspirations into detailed musical labyrinths. While hard breakbeats weave their way through ambient fields, jazz references and sub-bass. Every echofarmer concert is a subway train that doesn't stop.

Jazz students Bruno de Smet (bass synth and keys) and Moene Peeters (drums) will deliver a set that effortlessly glides from jazz, funk and fusion to UK garage and jungle. For fans of Kamaal Williams, Yussef Dayes and STUFF.

Essi, co-founder of Microwave, will start the evening with a refreshing selection of jazz, hip-hop and dub.

Colors as Sounds with Clément Davout

Workshop

This workshop bridges the disciplines of painting & music, whereby participants create postcards inspired by three tracks selected from the Objects & Sounds catalog. Rather than traditional paints, the material of choice will be flowers and plants, a means of getting away from any known gestures. This applies a tactile approach, which is not meant to be representative, but rather a sensitive evocation of perceived sounds. Each postcard will be the reflection of a soundscape, expressing our varied colored sensations.

Doors open at 19:00 and the concert will start once it’s dark.
