Leila Bordreuil is a Brooklyn-based cellist, composer and sound-artist from France. She accesses concepts as diverse as Noise, contemporary classical, free jazz, and experimental traditions but adheres to none of them. Her music mixes deep melancholia with harsh noise-walls at ear-bleeding levels, and was described by the New York Times as “steadily scathing music, favoring long and corrosive atonalities”.
Driven by a fierce interest in pure sound and inherent texture, Leila challenges conventional cello practice through extreme extended techniques and unorthodox amplification methods, to the extent she sometimes seems to be playing the P.A system rather than the cello. Her compositions frequently incorporate sound-spatialization by way of site-specific pieces and multichannel installations, and focus on neurological perception and our physiological relationship to sound and space.

Is one of the many artistic guises of Leonard Prochazka. No superfluous elements take away from the core experience of his sound. Somewhere a statement from David Byrne crossed our path, able to highlight something of the essence of Leonard's art: “No matter how alienated the subject or the singer might appear, the groove and its connection to the body would provide solace and grounding. But the edgy, uncomfortable stuff was still on the foreground”. The debut album 'Strapazen und Genesung' takes us to an exciting world that twists, squeaks and creaks, yet is grounded by an unmistakable groove.

He's the most unscrupulous, corrupt and fascinating drummer in all of Berlin. He has played in the semi-legendary Golden Showers and The Spankings (with Taylor Savvy). Other references from his CV include: Peaches, Soffy O, Jens Friebe, Electronicat, Namosh, Jim Avignon, etc. Currently. A one-man-gang-bang: astray vocals, square bass lines and stuttering ringtones.

Victoria Palacios and Loto Retina combining deliciously aggressive Spanish poetry with cute-arrogant recorder sounds and unregulated percussion full of twisted samples. Reggaeton? Folk circus? Lo-fi noise?

A collaboration between New Yorker Luke Calzonetti (Run Dust, Sugarstick & Xerox, Childabuse) and Limburgian Stijn Wybouw (KRAMP, Kraak records) of transcendental improv overtones. Undulating layers of synth lashings, cymbal echoes, and some laid-back guitar action mesh in a spaced out trip in the physical and astral plane.
A filmic hitchhike to nowhere. Their first LP just came out your way via the great Meakusma avenue.

Is a Belgian based group, had a skeletal line up of 2 drummers, (João Lobo and Mathieu Calleja), and 2 keyboards/synths/ fender rhodes + plenty of electronics (Giovanni Di Domenico and Pak Yan Lau).
The sound that they come up with could be loosely post-rock, but also closely allied to improvised, experimental and minimal music.
Their universe is all about trance, where time is being stretched and transformed in different ways. Electronic sounds weaves textures, while polyrhythmic cells are being laid down, sometimes hard to distinguish who is doing what.
Their music can be described as one big trip, a voyage into today’s urban stellar system.
Due to the leave of one of the members (Mathieu Calleja), Going is researching in this residency for possible new musical directions and guests or/and members. Going invites Manuel Mota, Gaspard Sicx and Giotis Damianidis for some experimentations during this week.
studio & concert hall / crickxstraat 15 / brussels
our 2 performance spaces can be rented for recording / practicing.
the studio is acoustically treated in order to be as isolated as possible.
No sounds from outside will disturb you once the doors are closed,
and you won't disturb anyone as long as you don't play harsh-noise.
It has been designed to have a pretty fair amount of liveness,
but can also be dampened using thick carpet and/or curtains.
IDEAL for recordings.
This room is a little more rough than the 1st floor, resulting in a more "living" sound,
which can be significantly lowered with heavy duty curtains made for that purpose.
Fully equipped - this is our main concert room - with powerful sound system / video / lights.
IDEAL for concert rehearsing / theatre / practicing.
we also have 2 apartments available, in the same building.
check them via airbnb the studio can host up to 2 people, and the duplex up to 5 people.
both apartments are fully equipped with kitchen and bathroom.
conditions are to be discussed via:
please note that we won't rent for parties / birthdays / human sacrifices.
