WORKS



RESOUNDING // v1

Version one of my work RESOUNDING - for violin, clarinet and surround electronics - created for the Startup Week 2022 of the Royal Conservatory the Hague. This piece is a shorter version of a work in development for another project. The subject of the work is the relationship between acoustic instruments, their recorded counterparts, and the different manipulations and filters that happen both digitally and in the physical space to the sound.

LADY OF SILENCES

She is present in many forms, yet invisible for the eye, she is the Lady of Silences. A song, based on a fragment of 'Ash Wednesday' by T.S. Elliot, about:
//
being in
loving
and letting go of
the garden of life.

INDRUK / SOLETUDE

When COVID-19 started, I was working on a project for a clarinet trio, formed by Femke van den Bergh & Ruth Mareen, to write a part of a suite, based on l'Histoire du Soldat by Stravinsky. The concert in May 2020 was canceled, but after the summer, when Femke commissioned me for another piece, we decided to bring that piece and the former program together in a one-time livestream concert, at Studio LOOS. We arranged all production and technical work ourselves, with the assistance of Studio LOOS, and the camera work and visuals of Luca Tornato Serafini. I did sound engineering and recording during the concert.

PASSAGE

Miniature work exploring two sound worlds, where clouds of contrasting colour pass through each other and interact. This piece uses multitrack recording technique of a multiple of the same instruments. Listen on headphones or earbuds for the best possible spatial experience.
