Gong Extensions + Suzan Peeters
Sylvain Debaisieux

Gong Extensions is a quartet with Guillaume Vanespen (Gong with the bow), Grégoire Tirtiaux (Alto and Baritone Saxophones), Sylvain Debaisieux (Tenor Saxophone) and Yann Lecollaire (Bass Clarinet).
The music of Gong Extensions is organized around the sound spectrum of the gong played with the bow, unfolding its rich over/sub-tones, creating waves, resonances, vibrations,…
The 3 woodwind musicians, playing in circular breathing, join the spectral matter of the gong, amplify it and color it.
Almost as a meditation, consisting of long continued notes interweaving, setting layers on layers, mixing, between lights and shadows, tensions and releases, composing large, colored, contrasted soundscapes, in perpetual transformation.

Special Guest : Suzan Peeters (°1999) is a belgian accordionist, experimentalist and improviser based in Brussels.
Suzan Peeters is constantly looking for new timbres and sound textures within her accordion. She extends the acoustic sound spectrum of the accordion by manipulating the bellows, preparing the instrument as well as using live electronics.
