Willem Boogman


Alexandra Roozen

From Scratch I ›Plain Dust‹ in Amsterdam

I am writing a series of compositions based on the working method of visual artist Alexandra Roozen. The Ives Ensemble recently played the first part on November Music and soon in Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam. This part, scored for flute, clarinet, trombone, violin, viola, cello and percussion, refers to the series of drawings entitled ›Plain Dust‹ by Alexandra Roozen.
