Esc.rec. presents the 32th edition of Ass-crack Stage-hack (ACSH). This is also the fourth junior edition. The ACSH junior editions provide a fun and challenging line-up for both children and adults. Now for the first time on location at Dok H2o in Havenkwartier Deventer.
Visual artist and singer/songwriter Harm Goslink Kuiper builds his own instruments; guitars, banjos and other stringed instruments from fruit box wood, fish oil cans, door thresholds, demolition wood, canvas, a salad bowl and more. The sound and character of these instruments is reminiscent of instruments from the 20s. Each instrument tells its own story. Just like each song does.
In the picturesque album ‘Stil Leven’ all Harm’s artistic disciplines come together as a harmonious whole. Something he had been seeking for years. ‘Stil Leven’ is a loving album full of musical and lyrical (Dutch) works of art. Recently he made an album of children’s songs about pieces from the art collection of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.
For this performance he brings a lot of self-built instruments and a bass player who will play his self-built double bass.
We kick off this special ACSH edition with a series of short performances by a number of orchestra’s formed by primary school pupils from the Sine Limite verrijkingsgroep. These performances are the result of ‘Muziek raken’, a project developed for these pupils by Marloes Bloemenkamp and myself.
Afterwards you are free to enjoy a lovely meal at Dok H2o!
