The Tip Top Orchestra is a youthful company of international amateur musicians dedicated to performing twentieth century avant-garde pieces with self-made instruments. The collective is settled in Rotterdam and made it its ethos to reuse obsolete technologies and ideologies within contemporary frameworks without any unnecessary conceptual baggage. The main goal is to play the pieces to life again. The collective is led by conductor Niek Hilkmann. During the event the orchestra will play two pieces. First, at 19:00 the debut of our interpretation of Steve Reich's 'Four Organs', played on 'klangboards' that were designed by Joseph Knierzinger. Later on in the evening the entire orchestra will play Terry Riley's 'In C', a piece with which the orchestra has achieved triumphs before.
News from Nowhere is the title of this years graduation show and brings together works by fourteen artists from different geographical locations and artistic contexts, who for two years studied and researched together in the Master of Media Design and Communication at the Piet Zwart Institute. This night's performances are  a rehearsal for the opening in TENT & V2_Institute for the Unstable Media on Friday, the 28th from 19:00 - 22:00.
