Jacq Palinckx works already for many years as an idiosyncratic guitarist and composer at the interface of improvised music, avant-rock and composed music. He founded his own group ‘Palinckx’ in 1983, where he wrote all music for and was a member of bands like Guus Janssen septet, Maarten Altena Ensemble, Beukorkest & Big Bamboozle.

Together with dutch composer Jacq Palinckx and writer Kees ’t Hart, the pan-european type-collective Underware will investigate into an expanded understanding of typography.
