Michael Rexen at The Fridge
Michael Rexen will be back in Dubai to perform at The Fridge on Wednesday, 8th January 2014. I've seen him perform before at The Fridge two years ago, where he was referred to as Michael Love Rexen, and the year before that with his band A Key is a Key. Both gigs are my top two favourite gigs at The Fridge and hoping this upcoming performance will be my 3rd favourite gig there.
He does look very different in the image above compared to his last to Dubai, so I am not sure if there's a massive change of direction in his music or he has a new stage persona. Whatever the case, I am really looking forward to this gig. Expect quirky lyrics and experimental music.
The email invite I received from The Fridge incuded this message, "a short hello from the artist himself, translated across binary from English to Haitian to Chinese and back":
_Michael was a robust performer Rexen. Between composition and improvisation dancing. In the new world, Jasper offers only two traditional birth of Michael. Expanded, and a wave of new residents invited. Home, you and e-learning Rexen and read the music and songs of paperwork. Interactive Enregistrement knowledge and this is often around the Earth, as well as concerts with him. Most of their two latest video concert minutes on future use._
You can read more about Michael Rexen here. The clip below titled "The Sound of an Orange" features Michael Rexen and Andreas Bennetzen in a 38 minute performance of sound and music using electronic live looping, "the purpose is to sharpen your senses".
Not sure how the gig at The Fridge will compare to this, but guess you will have to go to find out.
