Add to Calendar 2017-04-21 20:30 2017-04-21 Colin Stetson Solo at Bimhuis Bass saxophone phenomenon Colin Stetson previews his narrative album All This I Do for Glory. ‘Stetson has manipulated extended techniques to create brilliantly inventive songs’ (Downbeat).

Colin Stetson is known as a true sensation on bass saxophone, which he transforms into a complete brass ensemble including percussion. The Canadian saxophonist has collaborated with, among others, Arcade Fire, Tom Waits and David Byrne. His hypnotic solo pieces include impressive circular breathing techniques, as well as amplification of the saxophone’s sounds through contact microphones.

On April 28, Colin Stetson’s new solo album All This I Do for Glory will be released on his own label 52hz. The album tells a doomed love story in the model of the Greek tragedies, with music influenced by the ambient electronica of Autechre and Aphex Twin. Later this year, Colin Stetson will perform at the Bimhuis with the noise/metal formation Ex Eye.

‘Stetson demolishes clichés to unleash fresh, unexpected energies. It's like being inside an enormous brass tunnel full of windy byways and slamming valves, at once exhilarating and frightening’ (Pitchfork).
