//////// Margriet Kicks-Ass works as an interdisciplinary artist. Her artistic process can be described as investigative. In a Dadaistic manner she combines art with technology. Already as a child Margriet asked herself: ‘Why are the dishes not arranged alphabetically?’ Margriet refuses to be intimidated by calls for efficiency and functionality. She is juggling the context and meaning of everyday objects with an analytical attitude which also reflects her fascination for natural phenomena and technology. This is the starting point for the development/invention of playful kinetic sound sculptures, which she later exhibits as autonomous works of art or in theatrical live performances.
//////// Duke S. sound is a quirky mix of synthetic exotica, Sun Ra-esque electro jazz and ambient, laced with “faux field recordings”. The feeling is both futuristic and outdated, evoking ancient Egypt as well as adventures in outer space. At times the sound has something of Finnish composer Pekka Airaksinen. Live shows are accompanied by 8-bit visuals and of course cactuses. (Worm.org) Performed in the Benelux and Lithuania, using various vintage instruments including percussion pads and a theremin.
