Calefax Reed Quintet

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.

Storm, birds and art

The bird disco, gone with the wind 🥺

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!

Museum Kranenburg.

Museum Kranenburg, The roaring twenties. What a delightful exhibition! nice how it shows same themes from different angles and a diversity of artists! The roaring twenties after the Spanish flew had a lot of connections with the twenties we live in.

With guest-curators: Liesbeth in t Hout, Colin Huizinga, studio Wieki Somers and the works from Ron Mandos Gallerie and Allen and Overy a.o.

Sentimental Journal is out

Great to have 8 pages; interview and work in this beautiful international magazine: Sentimental Journal from Linda Loenen and Helma Bongenaar. Lots of mail art from my archive! Correspondence nr. 5

Mail art and me
Beautifully printed.

Studio: visit of Nadine Strang, Kobrani master.

Nadine Strang at my studio 2021. She is a Kobranie master. It was great to have Nadine over. She was very interested in my graphic scores and nice to have good conversation about it and how she works with music and the method.

The Kobranie method is a form of music improvisation in which creativity, authenticity comes first, playing with sound and thus becoming the playing person yourself and telling your story through sound.

Elvis and L.Vis

Happy birthday Elvis.
From the project L.Vis. For an exhibition which I joined as lousy impersonator. 😁 With real original blue sued shoes that is.
