27 February 2019 | YCM: Night concert Decibel | Gigant, Apeldoorn

After the lectures, night concerts will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 pm to 11 pm. These concerts are in the concert hall in Gigant.
Formed in 2003 by Irish composer Ed Bennett, and recently described in The Guardian as an ensemble performing 'Unclassifiable, raw-nerve music of huge energy and imagination', Decibel explores experimental, energetic, extreme and unusual work which generally exists between, or outside the usual categories. They play contemporary music which combines a direct amplified instrumental ensemble sound with electronics, improvisation and in some cases theatrical elements.

Apart from premiering many works by Ed Bennett, Decibel has worked with a diverse range of subversive composers and artists including Louis Andriessen, Heiner Goebbels, Laurence Crane, Howard Skempton, Michael Finnissy, Joe Cutler and Michael Wolters commissioning and premiering many new works. The group has also collaborated with artists from different disciplines including video artists and choreographers.

Since Decibel's first concert in Belfast in 2003 they have performed in concert halls, libraries, fields, sculptures, schools and art galleries throughout the UK and Ireland, to enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim. The group's recent CD of Ed Bennett’s music 'My Broken Machines' on NMC Records was Time Out Chicago's No.1 Contemporary CD of 2011.
