We participated in the JUJU radio tape project initiated by RIB, Rotterdam and BRUD, Warsawa. For that we made an archival piece entitled NOT YET (all the artists we had so far). Our whole list of artists in 4 parts, 2 forward, 2 backward.

Together with the students of The Piet Zwart Institute Experimental Publishing course, we have been researching new interfaces within the field of publishing. Over the course of one trimester, each of the students worked on their own sound module and tweaked it into their own conceptual project. No restrictions on INPUT. No restrictions on OUTPUT.

from 'The Balcony Of Europe' we wish you all the best for 2020!!!

No specific program yet but that will come very soon!!!!

DE PLAYER and Experimental Publishing XPUB - Piet Zwart Institute present:

Black Moon is composed from shortwave radio signals, recorded via the online receiver website at the Technical University of Enschede.  Each signal was chosen for the resonance it evokes in the listener, later interwoven with others from the same source recorded over several days, all selected for qualities that are outside of predictable controllable parameters to create a...

Pushing Scores - Publication launch and performance evening. 

We climbed some mountains, crossed some rivers went up the sky and descended some staircases and now it's time to yell and do a collective celebration of the birth of Positieve Berichtgeving (Positive News) the 12" vinyl record by Fluwelen Koord from Antwerp. WE will do the launch at Pinkie Bowtie Antwerp with a 5 days happening.

Important. This event will not be at our location Hillelaan but:ISKENDER – Doklaan 10-14, 3087 CB Rotterdam (Oud-Charlois)

pre-sale is closed



For this more installational performative happening we work together with the Joey Ramone gallery in Rotterdam.

While local governments and cultural managers are desperately looking for diversity, it is here live on stage and reflected in the audience. A program that highlights different angles of different matters. This is where synth pioneering, art-house, post-punk and multi instrumentalization merge into an evening of unexpected collisions. Everyone is invited for the jam.

DE PLAYER will be in the groupshow CO/LAB 4 – Los Angeles and Rotterdam at the Torrence Art Museum in Los Angeles from March 30 til May 18 2019.

Apologies in Advance is a cooperation between DE PLAYER, Tom White (who initiated this series) and South London Gallery. The idea is to bring arists on stage with a work in progress. So nothing has chrystalised yet. The event is a timeframe of a proces as well as a testcase of concepts. There's your bets please. Rien ne vas plus.

In KIOSK which is part of KASK, Ghent, we will present i.c.w. KRAAK en Groepsdruk (Gerard Herman) a night which focusses on acoustics and space. KIOSK is a room with a very specific reverb/echo in it. The space is a former anatomical theatre on the Bijloke site in Ghent.

Single sided 10" vinyl with the work Product Placements which consists of 72.400 samples and last 33 seconds. It was as well a performative, sculptural, audio and political piece. Kreidler made this work in order to test the GEMA structure for the new era of sampling. A great example of how this composer works.

This seven inch contains 4 Sprechtanzen; Foxtrott, Langsamer Walzer, Wiener Walzer & Tango. It was recorded when being performed by Gerhard Rühm and his partner Monika Lichtenfeld Rühm in DE PLAYER at 23 January 2016 for our BRAUBLFF #5 program.

During this evening we focus on the archiving of our Pushing Scores project. A project on the nowadays meaning of the 'graphic score', which has been running for over the last 2-3 years. What are the possibilities of graphic scores, in a day and age in which graphic notation is still usually seen as a ‘drawing’, serving as some kind of sheet music?

We will be present with new releases at this fair of special publishers from 13-17 hrs in Paradiso Amsterdam.

We are proud to be part of the world premiere tour of the documentary/film 'Ludo is Fantastic' by Willie Stewart.

This festivity is a celebration of the independent publishers universe. We let the usual record and label fair literary collide into a concert and party setting. It goes on from early afternoon and stops when you sold or traded your last tapes, lp’s, cd-r’s or magazines.

This Berlin-based Danish duo is active in the field of cinematic soundscapes.

This release is a 50/50 coöperation with Vinyl Terror & Horror (Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen). It has essentials from their and our approach and production on vinyl records. A serie with moulded 7" outcentered in a cut up 12" German schlager vinyl and cover.

Besides being part of the abstract/experimental electronic 'band' Stilluppsteypa, he is known for his energetic performances. His approach is that of the trembling artist, struggling to make sense and direction out of a creative impulse. Regardless of the medium, there is a continuous search for order and chaos throughout his body of work.

Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson for the POUR VOUS #2 with recordings from his performance set at DE PLAYER at 27 April 20013, where he tested the microphone stand and exhibited his failure and rise as a minimalistic, conceptual, experimental, avant garde, etc. musician and let the audience pay for it by undressing himself and pointing out some painful things on his laptop.

This issue in our Public Sound series contains two booklets with articles and one 10" record.

He's one of the members form Fucking Bastards and operates solo as Dr. Bibber.

This beautiful release was already longtime on the shortlist to be done. Dr. Bibber made a personal story in a 16 page booklet. It deals about his youth and how he became so eager on sex with negrowoman. All very understandable. This booklet (16 fullcolor copy) comes along with a single sided white flexidisc, plus the stencilled poster for the live event we had for the...

At this event DDV will give shape to the program. With Club Moral (DDV and AMVK) and possibly other invented brothers &/or sisters a performative political art sceance will be manifested. One of the performances is part of a trilogy.

He explores existential, social and artistic border situations and confrontation with his audience. DDV created 160 performances, many dealing with endurance, personal danger and psychological terror. His 1990s sculptures and installations are inspired by true crime, for which he corresponded with several multiple murderers in Belgium and the U.S.A.

Because of the fact that DE PLAYER is ACTIV for about X years now, we do 3 intimate events to give it meaning. The first event with GVD will be a cutural politisch gathering with film, reading, perfo and the presentation of a new release in our 8-INCH series. More details will soon follow. Helens cabins will be also open for your optional daily refreshment.

Handmade 10" in limited edition of 10 pieces.

Hugo Bongers will leave the RRKC after many years of engaged survey and advise. And because of the fact that he is a hard core fan of DE PLAYER's activities we were asked to offer a live act for this festivity.

One person we definitely needed to include in our catalogue is, of course, Emil Beaulieau, the man who invented the word Anti-Record. He has produced an amazing number of titles inhis RRRecords catalogue representing many great artists. This piece is, as he himself points out, “perhaps some of my best work.”

The Arhus Warrior, also known as Goodiepal or Goodiepal van den Dobbelsteen, is still fighting his war on stupidity in modern computer music and media arts. For SOUND as a WEAPON he gave us some information on possible tactics how to bring the Arhus warrior down. Pretty autobiographic information.

For SOUND as a WEAPON Erik van Lieshout made a beautiful range of covers all based on remakes of rap albums. All in his particularly rousy stile. For the A-side of the vinyl he recorded EPMD (Erik en Peter making dollars). A local story about his relationship with mr. DE PLAYER (Peter) himself and Erik.

In "NLD...deel 1 Balance" wisselen emoties elkaar af in kunstmatige of juist levendige vorm. Door het in gang zetten van bewegingen of de juist niet bewegingen versmelten tekst, mime, theater, film en live-video tot 1 beeld. Balance heeft een sterk live effect door de interactie tussen real-time computer animatie die in gang gezet wordt door lichamelijke beweging.

Het is dus workshoppen en producen.

autarchic installational and abstract music project, intensely physical, rushing between the boundaries of improv and composition.

A lot of stories are being told about Goodiepal (aka Gaeoudjiparl aka Parl aka Gaeoudjiparl van den Dobbelsteen), it seems he lives a mythical life. He is a Danish hacker from the Farao Islands where he still lives and works as well as in London, in Copenhagen, in etc..etc. He used to be THE sound-designer of big corporates like Nokia and Carlsberg.
