The day has finally come...
Dion and the Magic Chords will bless the world with their second
For those who are not familiar with DATMC, the sound of Dion
Woestenburg (keys) and Griffin Stuip (drums) takes you on a
journey from your favorite 80s children's show theme song
showing up in a fever dream - to Casio's 8-bit arpeggios rocking
endlessly in space - from Jung’s wild fantasies - to a
Kraftwerk-ish Super Mario Land - and back to Schiedam.
The release of GESTALT will be the first chance to witness the
integral performance of the album accompanied by visuals -a
collage of found and self shot footage by Dion- and a video/light
plan -designed and implemented by Nolan- in the sensory
GESTALT was born in the KMEX studio with all the gear DATMC
could get their hands on. Many different analogue (toy)
keyboards, hunted down and dug up from dusty basements or flea
markets, newly discovered synths and drum filters made their way
onto the record. They built a drum booth to make the drums pop
up, and all possible microphone placements have been tried out.
The result is a carefully orchestrated toy keyboard-drum fest.
The release will take place at KMEX, Het Grote Ketelmuziek
Experiment. Before the concert we warmly welcome you to come
play + undergo the KMEX experience.
KMEX is an interactive installation in which visitors can
communicate through sound and visuals.
