Event Details

Storyteller, performer, sculptor, illustrator, singer and pianist Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson roamed Europe in the past two year as a self-proclaimed M.D. with his traveling rap opera What Am I Doing With My Life? (W.A.I.D.W.M.L?) referencing the failures and perils of Western medicine.

Since then Styrmir has recorded an artist LP containing all the dark humoured rap songs and lullabies he composed on that tour together with his “Medical Faculty” (consisting of Jokūbas Čižikas, Indriði Arnar Ingólfsson, Jurgis Paškevičius, Thomas Myrmel, Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir, Hreinn Friðfinnsson, Géraldine Longueville, David Bernstein, Anat Spiegel, Bergur Thomas Anderson, Arnar Ásgeirsson, Örn Alexander Ámundason, Hilmar Guðjónsson, Žygimantas Kudirka, Curver Thoroddsen).

This concert at Cinetol marks the Dutch release of the record and will be celebrated with a concert by Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson, Jokūbas Čižikas, Indriði Arnar Ingólfsson & David Bernstein. Géraldine Longueville will also be joining and will brew a special sage-potion for the occasion to keep us safe.
The record as well contains a set of drawings made by Guðmundsson especially for each track. Normally the record costs €40, but for this Club Night it will be available for €35.

Club Nights is a series of events in which we focus on artists who as well have a ‘lesser known’ musical practice, or vice versa, and invite them to share their work for one night in the small club setting of Cinetol. Kunstverein thanks it (Gold)members for their continued support to our program. Together with Cinetol we also wish to thank Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, Stadsdeel Amsterdam Zuidoost and Volkshotel for their support to the Club Nights.
