Bram Stadhouders - Sidsel Endresen - Jim Black
The trio played 2 concerts at the Incubate Festival 2010. This was a concert without any rehearsal, just going straight up on stage. These 2 concerts were recorded and edited onto 1 CD which is mixed by Chris Weeda. The album is called Bell Time and is for sale in the Shop page. A year later they played 2 more concerts in the Bimhuis in Amsterdam and on the November Music Festival.


Sidsel Endresen
Norwegian avantgarde pioneer Sidsel Endresen has defined and re-defined vocal sound since her break-through in the early 1980s. Sidsel Endresen has worked with a vast number of musicians - in Norway and abroad, written music for films, theatrical productions as well as other commissioned work. She continues to be of huge inspiration to young vocalists (and improvisers in general!) around the globe. Her work has spanned genres from "fusion" and "jazz-rock in the -80's ,to free-improvisation,electronics and "new music" in the -90's and the new millennium.

Jim Black
Jim Black is at the forefront of a new generation of musicians bringing jazz into the 21st century. In addition to being one of the most influential drummers of our time, he is also the leader of one of the world's most forward-thinking bands, AlasNoAxis, featuring his longtime collaborators Chris Speed, Hilmar Jensson and Skúli Sverrisson. Based on the foundation of his virtuosic but highly personal approach to jazz drumming, Black's aesthetic has expanded to include Balkan rhythms, rock songcraft and laptop soundscapes. Though he is revered worldwide for his limitless technique and futuristic concepts, what many listeners treasure in most Jim Black's work is the relentless feeling of joy and invention he brings to his performances. Jim Black's smiling, kinetic, unpredictable presence has enthralled and inspired audiences worldwide for over twenty years.
