Looking back and forward

For me 2015 was the year of forging quite a few new works. Detuning Guitar for Jasper Stadhouders and myself, Untitled For Anne for, well, Anne La Berge, and SPILL for Miriam Overlach. I also developed three pieces for organ in various constellations: Moving On Second, Sunday Rhino and Sacred Noise, involving Audrey Chen, Jacob Lekkerkerker and Michael Bonaventure. Some of these pieces premiered in Orgelpark during the theatrical concert To Whom this Power which I created together with the performers, director Nienke Rooijakkers and sound-poet Sieger Baljon. All these compositions were developed with extensive help from the performers and collaborators, and would not have seen the light without them. Thank you!

Where 2015 was full of composing, it lacked a bit in just playing, just being in the moment. I'll make that up by performing 5 times in the first two months of the new year. Check the dates in the events section. I am looking very much forward to that! I hope to see some of you there, please come and enjoy the music.
