Add to Calendar 2017-10-28 20:30 2017-10-28 The Rest Is Noise: Colin Stetson Ex Eye at Bimhuis Ex Eye is the new band of saxophone virtuoso Colin Stetson. With metal as a foundation, the Canadian player will once again test his audience to the limit.

What happens when you combine the skills of New York top musicians Colin Stetson (saxophone), Greg Fox (drums), Toby Summerfield (guitar) and Shahzad Ismaily (bass and synths)? A mentally and physically overwhelming music experience. Stetson is a familiar name to Muziekgebouw visitors. Ex Eye proves that his quest for musical crossovers has not ended yet. Stetson is a singular voice on bass saxophone, because of his inventive us of extended techniques such as circular breathing and multiphonics. In his breathtaking solo playing he uses the sax both as a melody and a percussion instrument, hammering the valves. Metal, noise, jazz and experimental music collide together in Ex Eye. The lightning fast tempos by percussionist Fox and the monster riffs by Summerfield and Ismaily perfectly fit Stetson’s adventurous spirit.
