Europe Here & Now: Binkbeats presents OHM

Europe Here & Now: Binkbeats presents OHM

Tuesday, 7 November 2023, 8.30pm

Binkbeats (aka Frank Wienk) is known for his progressive compositions which explore the boundaries between acoustic and electronic music. For his new project he collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Henk Schut. His electro-acoustical objects combined with ritual percussion and influences from modern dance music form the spill in a fully immersive experience.

Out of great curiosity in sound, Wienk experimented with transforming synthetic sounds into an analog, acoustic source. In that search he found Henk Schut: making physical objects vibrate through electronic signals appeared to be a common interest. The musicality of Wienk and the expertise of Schut complemented each other: together they designed a new installation which plays an important role in ‘OHM’.

Musically, Wienk took inspiration from ritual instruments and techno-sounds. Drums with animal skins, timbila, simantra and a lithophone, but also drumcomputer kickdrums and deep basses. Polyrhythms are a key element in the compositions; as they shift in multiple layers over one another, they create a variable sense of time for the listener
