My graphic score that had been projected on this huge building called Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht. Thanks to Beam Systems!
Azdaya, a graphic score
Notes of a nut. Graphic score in the making. Related to the play: Notes of an idiot / Diary by an idiot, from the Russian writer Gogol. He describes how an insignificant civil servant suffers from delusions of magnanimity.
The name of the monster is Azdaya. It has many heads. It’s goal is destruction.
Crash, the graphic score
At work. Creating my graphic score for director Tjepke Zijlstra for his film/installation Crash. At a sweaty 7 degrees Celsius.

For the series portrait of makers I was invited to join the portrait of Merel Pauw who made a great hiphop show. I talked about my graphic scores. It was fun ❤️
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.

Storm, birds and art
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!

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.
Graphic score for Dreaming about Paradise
This Graphic score is a triptych. I created music for the last part.
