In the residency series Extratool, Extrapool hands over its sound studio to a musician or (sound) artist for a few days. This person then invites a colleague to collaborate on two new compositions. At the center of this series is Yuri Landman's range of instruments: string and percussion instruments on which coloured dots indicate harmonic divisions that deepen the various sounds. From the 3rd till the 6th of December 2020 Albert van Abbe worked on this second iteration. He invited Swedish artist David von Bahr to collaborate. Covid regulations created a situation in which the residency took place simultaneously in Nijmegen, Stockholm and Eindhoven.

Albert van Abbe: “For us The Extratool project was a perfect extension into the realm of sound and a way to get to know each other sonically, working acoustically and with analog electronics remotely. While we have other projects on the horizon, the Extratool 7’’ is the debut of our collaboration in physical form.”

“The result consists of howling atonal acoustic snare fragments reminding of some releases on Subtext Recordings merged with modular synth improvisations. A vague nod to modern classical music in a DIY manner.”

Albert van Abbe
A self-titled veteran ‘Sound Builder’ Albert van Abbe has just about covered the whole field of electronic music over the course of the last 20 years; from minimalistic sound installations to uncompromising hardcore acid productions, a long list of collaborative works, institutional partnerships and public projects with artists of various mediums add to an exciting list of performances both inside and outside the club.

David von Bahr
As a painter, David von Bahr is direct and effective. He eschews drafts or outlines in favour of a direct meeting with the canvas where his motives take form through improvisation and instinct. He sees this bluntness as an intrinsic part of his work and sets up practical guidelines to enable this freedom. Abstract patterns, blocks of colour and scattered brush strokes are ordered into an intuitive framework shaped by the artist for the sake of efficiency and satisfaction. Recently he picked up working with modular synthesis.
