Jort Terwijn’s Önder is a bass ensemble consisting of double bass, bass guitar, two bass clarinets and drums. The conventional understanding of bass is recreated within the ensemble, shifting the approach and perception of the instrument. Together they create a fresh and rare musical installation in an acoustic-electronic context.

The compositions are at times hypnotic, labyrinthine drones or chopped-up beats. The ensemble ventures open soundscapes to harsh avant-garde, constantly on the quest for new curves in the musical lineage of jazz.

“Önder, vol.1” is the debut album of Jort Terwijn’s Önder, accompanied by bassclarinettist Federico Calcagno, bassguitar/modulair synth player Daan Leever and drummer Nick Tessalonikefs. ÖNDER contains five stories about serial killers, places of belonging, a homage to Iceland, nostalgic disorientation and “Crushed Drum N Bass” penned by Jort Terwijn and produced by Jort Terwijn and Alessandro Mazzieri.

This concert is part of the Footprints European collaborative project co-funded by the Creative Europe programme.
