Incubated 14 is this coming Thursday (2nd of February) and it’s quite an amazing edition. We have three acts on the bill, who all performed on Incubate before, The Caretaker, Library Tapes and Sleepingdog. But this edition is even more special because you can win special customized Fatboys by Martijn van Dalen! It’s very easy to win a Fatboy, all you have to do is buy your ticket in the presale! If you win one, we will let you know on the evening itself and you can chill the rest of the evening on your own special Fatboy!
The Caretaker is all about lost memories, amnesia and nostalgia to old times. Creating a deep beautiful, but sometimes sinister atmosphere he tries to take you back in your personal history through electronic ambient music. Pleasant memories, bad dreams, being alone in the dark, all these emotions overtake the listener. If you’ve seen the Kubrick movie ‘The Shining’, you will get an idea of the beautiful but disturbing feelings The Caretaker tries to evoke.
But Leyland Kirby doesn’t sit still. Next to releasing 3 EP’s under his own name, and aforementioned ‘An Empty Bliss…’-album, he made the score for the movie Patience (After Sebald) which had its release last week. All the more reasons to be attending Incubated 14!
The Swedish David Wenngren is Library Tapes, pioneer of post-classical/neoclassical piano music. Library Tapes started in 2003 with David Wenngren and Per Jardsell. Wenngren hadn’t even touched a key of a piano, let alone played the piano! But he practised and listened to great artists like Sylvian Chaveau and Goldmund and he developed his own style. After the first album Per Jerdsell went his own way and David Wenngren became Library Tapes. The sounds that Wenngren produces are like subtile field recordings, with scratching and ticking noises of old 78-RPM record. Library Tapes performed at this years Incubate Festival but a lot of people missed his performance because Glen Hansard played at the same time in the Natuurtheater. Now they’ve got another chance to see him perform as Library Tapes.
Third band on the bill is Sleepingdog. The band has two members Chantal Acda (Chacda) and Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid, A Winged Victory for the Sullen). Chantal Acda has been performing as Sleepingdog since 2006 and in that same year she played at the ZXZW Festival (former name of Incubate). She worked on her first two albums with Adam Wiltzie and he became such an essential part of her music, that he became a member of the band. Sleepingdog is based on the fairy-like atmosphere of Iceland and goes beyond the limits of New-Folk and Folktronica.
You can let us know if you’re attending the event on Facebook and/or Last.fm. Tickets can be purchased below or on the Incubated website to be at this great show and maybe score one of the four special customized Fatboys! We hope to see you at the Paradox, Tilburg this Thursday!
