Fred Tabois (aka Fredheadset) : sound engineer, samples, plunderphonics, sound treatments, electronics, any sound desired
Each "rehearsal session" consists of a get-together of the members, without any musical plans whatsoever, 1 minute of silence and then, either, Heaven or Hell breaks loose for a minimum of 50 minutes
All improvised, on the spot
Clearly enough no rehearsal session is the same, ever
All rehearsals are recorded professionally
New Instant Composers Syndicate's intention is to actually perform live with these sessions.
Since they all play Midi instruments without any amplifiers they are only able to hear each other by headphones
Crowd members of these "live sessions" wil be supplied with High End headphones to experience the ultimate sound and will be able to roam around freely inbetween or around the musicians since the absense of acoustical amplification means the musicians can be situated anywhere
Not a conventional stage setup
In addition lights and projection will be used to reach the ultimate aural and visual setting
From January 2019 New Instant Composers Syndicate are pushing their borders and consist of the four core musicians John Berrevoets, Edwin Bouman, Robbert Becker, Fred Tabois (aka Fredheadset) and Wietske Jansen (vocals)
