Loading Dock Sessions

Our very own Loading Dock in The Hague inspired us to return to the fundamentals of our existence. We want to share our music and creativity by unboxing Slagwerk Den Haag in a single-shot miniature concert. No cuts and edits! Loading Dock Sessions takes you along unique sonic-landscapes, hand-picked and carefully constructed to give you a tasteful blend of Slagwerk Den Haag. These recordings take place in the Loading Dock of our home-studio, surrounded by a hardware store, garages and hightech drone manufactures. We open our doors and invite you to enter our world. 

We release a new Loading Dock Session every two weeks. Subscribe to the Slagwerk Den Haag YouTube channel and follow the Loading Dock Sessions!

Loading Dock Session #6

It says it all, this Loading Dock is inspired by the donkey jawbone or ‘harrasca’, used in many places in Latin America. Hugo Morales uses new techniques, using sticks to hit it. 

In the Loading Dock our four percussionists are joined by four fantastic cellists to perform Martijn Paddings Gallop. It’s an unconventional piece that was part of our One Page Project, in which 5 composers were challenged to compose a piece on a single page.  Martijn managed to squeeze all the info on a single A3, while cursing us :-). As a payback we have to use our voices and toy instruments. 

Challenge: find the cup of coffee!

Tip: Listen with headphone for improved sound experience!
