Exciting and great to have the musicians and board of TenToon Ensemble in my studio for the presentation about the opera Potestas from composer Thomas Geerts and me. 😁 Thomas presented the music he wrote based on my graphic score and a part of the overture and I presented the story and the related art. ￼ We had a wonderful meeting. Thanks big! 💝

A great visitor in my studio last year: Jelte Althuis from the wonderful Calefax Reed Quintet, studying on my graphic scores! Maybe for a future joint event… Calefax is familiar with the experimental approach. They also performed the Garden of earthly delights of Jeroen Bosch: https://youtu.be/h1-gqSPMD3k.
The storm from last weekend took one of the five artworks from my project Diversity in One from the Meeuwenlaan in Amsterdam. Hundreds of kids had participated so I hope to find it back and replace it!
