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.

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
and letting go of
the garden of life.

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.
In this concert, two of my pieces were premiered:

- Indruk (Clarinet trio) - also at 24:30 in the video below

- Solétude (Bass Clarinet Solo) - also at 59:06 in the video

Full performance:


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.
Bass Clarinet - Femke van den Bergh
Violin - Ruth Mareen


A work written for Tuba, (bad) internet connection, and remote electronic processing. During Covid times I was involved in organising the 'Spring Festival Online', a student organised online alternative for the cancelled festival of the Royal Conservatory the Hague. For that festival I wrote this work to interact with the characteristics of the internet sound and latency. This work was performed live via the internet. The signal of the Tuba was sent to to the Hague from Vienna, and subsequently processed by me in The Hague. The original and processed signal were mixed live and sent out over the livestream, the electronics creating a spectral aura for the Tuba sound that the player can interact with.
Tuba - Harry Golden
Live electronics - Hidde Kramer


False Spring is a song set to the poem of the same name by Jan Wolkers.  In the piece the relationship between spring and winter is explored. The brief moment they might coexist, when spring shows her first signs of life, and laments her inability to coexist with winter.
