Loading Dock Sessions

Our very own Loading Dock in The Hague inspired us to return to the fundamentals of our existence. We want to share our music and creativity by unboxing Slagwerk Den Haag in a single-shot miniature concert. No cuts and edits! Loading Dock Sessions takes you along unique sonic-landscapes, hand-picked and carefully constructed to give you a tasteful blend of Slagwerk Den Haag. These recordings take place in the Loading Dock of our home-studio, surrounded by a hardware store, garages and hightech drone manufactures. We open our doors and invite you to enter our world. 

We release a new Loading Dock Session every two weeks. Subscribe to the Slagwerk Den Haag YouTube channel and follow the Loading Dock Sessions!

Tip: Listen with headphone for improved sound experience!

Loading Dock Session #12 | Première: 24 June 2021 | 20:00hr

We just love a green deal! 

Ingredients; 4 solar panels, an insane spinning light source, gaffer to mark our trajectory and Hugo Morales to create this transcending experience. Light is captured by small solar panels mounted on the percussionists’ chest. By moving and closing in on the spinning light they create a subtle landscape of evolving pulses. Like moths they are fascinated and attracted by this light-source until they burn themselves. As a prelude a resonating cow-horn that reflects some brute analogue pulses.
