Die Lebensbeichte des Francois Villon


Alfons Kujat in seiner Glanzrolle als Gauner, Dichter, Hurensohn. Wer ihn gesehen hat, der hat ihn getrunken.

„Kehr ich zurück …?“ – Nach harter Haft, nach mehr als 500 Jahren, nach Umsturz, Verbannung und Pestilenz, kehrt er, in unseren Schoß, zurück. Ein Abend voller Weisheit, Turbulenzen und Verzückung. Ein Loblied auf das Leben, die Lust, den Zweifel und all deren Vergänglichkeit. Himmelhoch jauchzend, zu Tode betrübt. Worte wie die Faust auf’s Auge. Wen es nicht packt, den packt er.

Zea (The Ex – guitar) & Xavier Charles (clarinet)

Since 2008 Zea has been the solo project of Arnold de Boer. He’s also a singer and guitarist in legendary Dutch band The Ex. Before 2008 Zea was a duo and earlier a five piece band, but the songs were always written, arranged, recorded and produced by De Boer. His label, Makkum Records was formed in 2009 with intention to release his own projects, but since 2012 the label has offered many other eccentric releases.

Xavier Charles is an amazing clarinet player from France working mostly in the international improvised music scene. The combination with the open minimal guitar play of Zea (Arnold de Boer) works like a treat.

Erlend Apneseth Trio (Contemporary Norwegian Wood)

Erlend Apneseth (Hardanger fiddle, mora harp)
Stephan Meidell (guitar, electronics)
Øyvind Hegg-Lunde (drums, percussion)

A new Northern star that shines from Norway!
Erlend Apneseth Trio’s first album, „Det Andre Rommet“, earned glowing praise in Norway and abroad, and received both a Norwegian Folk Music Award in the open category and a nomination for Spellemannsprisen (the Norwegian Grammy). The BBC Music Magazine gave it the highest possible rating, and wrote: „The diversity of moods, styles, settings – and the track sequence – make for an enthralling listen.“ MOJO praised the trio’s „close, intuitive compositions groaning, roiling and clattering with a raw exploratory life, creating a wild new strain of Norwegian folk tunes that move, appropriately, from sun-dappled utopianism to the bleakest noir netherworld.“ The trio returned a year later with a masterly, poetic and surprising album, „Åra“, where the musicians sound more cohesive than ever. The album was once again nominated for Spellemannsprisen in the open category, and got overwhelming reviews both in Norway and internationally.

Limpe Fuchs (Piano Solo)

Limpe Fuchs is a legend in the experimental music scene. In the late sixties, this percussionist drummed on self-made instruments, together with her then husband Paul Fuchs, in the Ensemble Anima. During that time, Limpe and Paul Fuchs cooperated with the classic pianist star Friedrich Gulda, as well as with jazz luminaries like Albert Mangelsdorff, and continually attracted the interest of their audiences in new constellations. Limpe Fuchs‘ solo performance with „variable wood and stone rows, ringing bronze in the pendulum strings, and a variety of skin and bronze drums“ is a rare occasion to witness one of the early avant-gardists of the scene from the old Federal Republic Of Germany. She attempts, while playing live, to develop her musical ideas from the „resonance of the location where the performance takes place“ – „to make music in the flow of time, with simplicity and emotion“! Her main concern is to sensitize the process of hearing: „Every tone is a sensation. Listening instead of shutting one’s ears. Establishing silence.“

Aki Takase & Alexander von Schlippenbach (piano 4 hands) (Jazz)

Doors: 19.00

„They are having a conversation within the medium of sound. But they complement one another in a way that makes any stylistic differentiation irrelevant. With all the transparency in the course of their playing the dialogical principle opens out into an holistic piano language. What counts is freedom and the responsibility to create something new, driven by the awareness of continuous change.“

„One of Europe’s premier free jazz bandleaders, pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach’s music mixes free and contemporary classical elements, with his slashing solos often the link between the two in his compositions.“

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (Polyphonic Percussion), Julius Gabriel (Saxophone Explorer)

Doors: 19.00


The diverse sound of tonbak and daf has always fascinated Mortazavi. It connects him with an understanding of music and movement that is as multifaceted as it is constantly evolving. His musical ideas transcend traditional techniques and ways of playing both instruments. Mortazavi describes finding a balance between concentration and letting go as the core element of his musical work: a constantly changing movement in which the boundaries of body and mind dissolve into one another. Mortazavi directs his focus exclusively on music, detached from the instrument and national-cultural narratives, in pursuit of the idea of a universal music in which something human connects in a profound way.


Julius Gabriel is a saxophonist whose work explores the boundaries and intricacies of his instrument. He delves into the dynamic interplay between corporeality, acoustics, transcendence, and hypnosis. His musical foundation is deeply rooted in improvisation, drawing inspiration from an eclectic spectrum of genres. A virtuoso, in an existentialist sense, presenting his brand new record „Tales from the Subterranean“.

LES FLÂNEUSES: JOURNEY (Alexandra Cárdenas, Caroline Siegers)

Doors: 19.00


Flânerie was long considered a male activity (while street women were either beggars or prostitutes), but a lot of female art and thought is inspired by the experience of a walk in the city. Nevertheless, flâneuses seem to have an element of transgression: they go where they‘re not supposed to. Alexandra Cárdenas and Caroline Siegers take us on their very own musical journey, weaving their street adventures into their performance. Alexandra Cárdenas is producing her own independent code on stage, Caroline Siegers performs with her custom built MIDI controllers, both very inclined to leave the paved roads at any time. 3 Sets à 20 minutes.

Rəhman Məmmədli & Band

Master of Azerbaijani Gitara Music

Rəhman Məmmədli’s blazing, psychedelic guitar music sprang from one of the most tumultuous and transformative periods in Azerbaijan’s history, capturing both the spirit and the contradictions of its time. In the years since, he has become the emblem of Azerbaijan’s gitara music – a unique subculture that developed around the electric guitar. Next to the late Rüstəm Quliyev, whose „Azerbaijani Gitara“ (Bongo Joe Records, 2020) introduced the West to this unique genre, which often sounds like Surf Music to untrained ears, Rəhman is the absolute don of this style – often going live on social media for hours on end, shredding.

Adam Geoffrey Cole & Trappist Afterland (Gnostic Folk)

Planet Rock presents:

Trappist Afterland was formed in 2010 and is the Psychedelic folk project fueled by the religious ruminations of songwriter and multi instrumentalist Adam Cole (oud,guitar, Lute,tanpura Bodhran,Vocals). Although the influence of folk music from various sectors around the world can be heard in Trappist Afterland’s music (The British folk revival, 70’s acid folk, Gamelan music, Middle Eastern music, Indian raga) they still maintain a unique and almost otherworldly quality, that sounds unlike anyone else. With lyrical explorations delving into Gnosticism, Christian mysticism and other esoteric themes.

Invocation (EthnoJazz):Hub Hildenbrand (guitar, voice) & Canberk Ulas (duduk)

Doors: 19:30

Hildenbrand’s music is defined by the restless nature of a seeker.

Ultimate truth and pure beauty remain forever on the horizon. His is a journey into the core of music.
By merging elements from ethno and world music, European contemporary Jazz, neoclassical, cinematic sounds, and the singer-songwriter tradition, he unfolds a multifaceted sonic world.
On this special occasion Hub will be joined by Turkish duduk player Ustad Canberk Ulas.
