Performance, A Language Under My Skin

The Names play: DH (Doug Hammond)

As part of Sadik Kwaish Alfraji’s exhibition A Language Under My Skin, W139 will host a performance by The Names. Shaped by the ideas of critical music, listening and sounding practices, and the position of the post-musical, The Names combines playing musical material with reflections on public space, society, and the world of ideas at large.

The Piece DH (Doug Hammond), composed by The Names initiator Koen Nutters, is an extended structure for modal improvisation based on the letters of the name of Doug Hammond: composer, drummer, musician, poet, and educator. The Names is a new Berlin/Amsterdam/Heerlen collective of creative musicians playing open, yet melodic, pieces in a Cage/Oliveros informed spectrum of improvised strategies and open-ended compositions.

The Names:

Harry Golden – tuba

Marielle Groven – violin

Aimée Theriot – cello

Koen Nutters – bass, composition

Gert-Jan Prins – percussion
