A grant for ›Een oog in zee‹!

Very happy with a grant from the Performing Arts Fund NL that makes it possible that, after a long period of preparations, I can start composing the new music theater work ›Een oog in zee‹, commissioned by Foundation Noorderklank! I feel privileged to work in a great team of fantastic and inspiring people: Salomé Roodenburg - libretto and scenography, Helena van Heel - mezzo-soprano, Vincent van Amsterdam - accordion, Fokke van Heel - horns, Kenzo Kusuda - dance, Zephyr Brüggen - stage direction, Nanny Roed Lauridsen - production. ›Een oog in zee› is based on the myth of Ariadne and Theseus, which we'll present in a new interpretation.

Een oog in zee

In preparation: the music theater performance ›Een oog in zee‹ for which I'll write the music. This is the trailer that hopefully opens doors to many performances at various venues (season 2021-2022), and reasonable honoraria for all participants. I'm really looking forward to it!

teaching composition, orchestration...

I intend to expand my teaching practice in composition, orchestration / instrumentation and making arrangements. There is room for one or two more students.
If you want to be taught on these subjects, or improve your skills in these areas, then contact me, or take a look at my website: teaching
What I have to offer is certainly also fit for those who for some reason cannot attend the conservatory.
