The legendary Japanese composer Phew returns to Belgium with her punky electronics, alongside the performative music of Merche Blasco and the DIY creations of the Ghent duo Rimov Rimov.
rimov/Rimov is the musical brainchild of artists Simon Joostens and Robbe De Pestel who explore different genres, ranging from leftfield hip hop and avant-folk to guitar music, DIY synth stuff and sound design. The group tries to reflect their broad musical interests in an ever-changing live set.
