Peter Jacquemyn - Double Bass solo
Sculptor, bass player and judoka Peter Jacquemyn developed his improvising skills as a member of the WIW (Werkgroep Improviserende Musici). As a sculptor he assaults tree trunks with axe and chainsaw - as a judoka he shared the tatami with Belgian Olympic champions. His concerts are just as spectacular: with unbridled energy he lovingly wrestles his double bass. It is a battle in which all means are fair: bows (1, 2 or 3), dented soda cans, plastic bags, crumpled paper, mutes, horns, retuned strings,...
All of this ranges Peter Jacquemyn among Belgium's most interesting improvisers with a very justified international reputation.
