Damn. Wish I could go to this! That naughty little monkey Goodiepal is playing at Villa Te Koop, The Hague, Holland tonight.
Villa te Koop - or "The Villas", as everyone seemed to call it - is the former Swedish Embassy that myself and the rest of the Hacker Farm boys stayed in when we made a sky-road-trip to Holland recently. It's a really amazing space - populated by some fabulous people - they build drones in the basement, construct analogue / modular synthesisers, have their own radio-station and performance-space(s)... been meaning to post a "Dutch Diary" type thing to chronicle our weekend over there. We had a fantasitic time and I really can't over-emphasise how lovely the people were that we met and stayed with.
"We are very pleased to announce that Goodiepal will be performing at our own Villa te Koop!
Since his performances at Vrijhaven in 2005 and 2008, a lot has happened so we are really curious what's happening now ... it's a happening!
"Danish artist / musician / hacker/ theorist and all-round story-teller Goodiepal (aka Gaeoudjiparl van den Dobbelsteen or Sygnok) has been a key player on the electronic music and art scene since the end of the 1990's.
"Over the years his work has evolved from electronic noise-pop (released on V/VM) to a conceptual challenge of the norms on music composition (his Radical Computer Music theory).
"Goodiepal is considered controversial and his name is associated with extreme terms like charlatan and genius. You can make up your own mind...
Entry 5 Euros."
