John and the Houseband - Anthology

 A fan: “You may dislike this music, or you may fail to understand it, but you cannot deny its overwhelming greatness”. C. Beauchamp

At Kunstenwerkplaats Pianofabriek John and the Houseband record their first album Anthology.

John the Houseband is a project born in Amsterdam back in 2008. It is a musical assembly of dancers and choreographers from Sweden, Iceland, Belgium, Spain and Germany. They came together as a collaborative changing body, a band, which is not a band in normal terms, but an art project; an investigation of life and liveness. John is inspired by the particular ability of live music to affect an audience in a very primal way.
Furthermore John the Housebands shows blur the boundaries between concert and performance, professionalism and amateurism, skill and dedication. John bends the spacial organization of a band.

The members of John are working with dance companies such as Damaged Goods/Meg Stuart and Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus, and independently performing their own work with various artists all over Europe.

John the Houseband are : Alma Söderberg (SE), Dennis Deter (D), Melkorka Sigridur Magnusdottir (IS), Anja Müller (D), Hendrik Willekens (BE) and Roger Sala Reyner (ES).

Listen to some samples of their music.
