An evening at which FRAKnoise induced the Big Bang. He did a stunning improvisation using his modular synth, trusted guitar, and a plethora of effect pedals. With FRAKnoise you simply don’t know where you’re heading. You bring the food and he brings the radio.
FRAKnoise picks up his guitar after he kicks off the Modulab Big Bang event. It’s so obvious he loves improvising with stringed instruments in combination with electronica. His interpretation of the big bang results in haunting electronic noises. And sometimes just a lovely little beat.
As the music of FRAKnoise (Allard Krijger) is hard to pin to a specific style, the main feature of his music is pluriformity.
Modulair synthesizers, home keyboards, and other key instruments. An old theremin. Stringed instruments from mandoline to guitar sitars. Flutes, electronic wind instruments. He uses almost anything he can get his hand on to create styles from experimental ambience, through trippy and funky electronics to almost folk like acoustic music.
His collaboration with Terrace resulted in the ambience project “The Heisenberg Compensators” and the album: “Adventures of Werner and Random” (Groove Music, 2017). Before that the albums “The Fables Of Allard Krijger” (fraknoise productions, 2000) and “InterBabylonianMusicals” (eevonext, 2010) where published.
