A great performance of dance company Leina Roebana and Dyane Donck Compagny (sound, music) Everything is so intergraded and comes so beautifully together. Proud of my colleague Diane Donck who created the beautiful musical story. It was like a surrealistic dream.
The photos are taken before the start of the performance.
At work. Almost finished my graphic score: Notes of a Nut. Based on the war by the Russians. It’s been a long slow proces. But never giving up and keep on working to process what visuals mean in sound. Love doing this
I am, my voice is, part of The Listening Project in the Open Oscilator Festival at the Tolhuistuistuin! A festival of experimental (synth) music and sound. That’s great 👍🏼
The Listening Project is the growing sound archive of artists Rosalie Wammes, Rosa Ronsdorf, and Roos Pollmann. They have created an installation about time with the voices of residents of Noord. In an immersive installation, you can experience a new perspective on time.
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.
On the Roof: on top of a building in Amsterdam Neco took as om a trip to Mozambique. We heated the rithme of the land the sounds of the wind and the birds, the stories of his grandparents and his dad who was absent. We clapped and sang together. That was really a wonderful experience. Thanks Neco!
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.
