CHARLES HAYWARD will probably be associated with This Heat until the end of time. This legendary cultband recorded a few records in the late 70’s and 80's that still sound fresh and new.

ANNA HOMLER is a performance artist from Los Angeles, USA. She had a gig in the year 91 in Rotterdam on the "Dissidents Festival. Similarly Geert Waegeman was there with his group Cro Magnon. The two were interested in each other's work, started talking and decided to start recording. Anna knew Pavel Fajt and thought he would be the appropriate third man. And so it began. Since then, Anna, Geert and Pavel work together sporadicly. The results can be heard on a album they recorded in Belgium and a live recording they made in Canada. Anna's world is characterized by a made-up and improvised language, but she also uses English in a surreal context. Works with found objects, and her performances are very visual. Pavel Fajt has reinvented percussive instruments. He worked with Iva Bittova and was the mastermind behind Dunaj, the Czech TC Matic. Geert Waegeman was a founding member of Univers Zero and was a anchor point for Urban Chamber Music in Belgium. Ever since he's been innovating to keep hammering away with Cro Magnon, movie concerts, musical theater and an organic look at electronics and acoustics . The special guest on our evening at Ateliers Claus is Koen Van Roy (Cro Magnon), bringing us his wide variety of saxophones and wind instruments. Musical paintings in an adventurous setting.
