Before there was husc, Sander Bolk and I did a few performances inspired by beat-poetry. To BE-AT was our very first performance together.

We claimed a lean-to which was at that time used as a bicycle shed, bought a lamp, some sweaters (it was quite cold), and invited a bunch of people to come and listen. The silent 8mm film shot by Stan Wannet says it all, and watching it still takes me back, you wouldn’t say it was shot in 2000…



To BE-AT reprise:




Sander Bolk: words

Koen de Wit: bass clarinet
