CRASH

With Friend and director Tjepke Zijlstra from Luim film. He gave me the assignment to deliver visuals for his experimental film/installation; Crash.

I focus on the energie and flashbacks de main character has when he left the car after been in a severe crash! We stand in front of the visual research that should finally become a graphic score. It is very abstract.

As research I did a.o. an interview with a person who had been clinical dead two times.
Do you have a sort of experience like that?

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.

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.
