• Stereophonic in(ter)ventions

Some geeky impressions from my artistic residency at Gaudeamus and Muziekhuis in Utrecht. Preparing the technical part of a new radio phonic live performance commissioned by Gaudeamus Muziekweek, to be premiered by ensemble But What About upcoming September 2018. Now, together with Ruud van Kluten re-discovering several historical speaker and headphone stereophony possibilities. Most of it is a loud and clear re confirmation of the tremendously deep ‘power of sound’.

• I AM TEACHING

I love giving lectures, teaching masterclasses and tailoring workshops related to vocal art and radio art: for individuals as well as groups! I have had the tremendous honour to have been taught in formal and informal ways from an innumerous amount of inspiring and generous masters (see bio); and I am excited to pass on all I have learned and discovered along the way. So from 2018 onwards I’ll be teaching on a more regular basis.

• New Material

Today – after an incredibly long summer and autumn break – started new studio sessions with the acoustic trio around Abel Fazekas & Riccardo Marogna on bass clarinet and me as a soprano. It’s so lovely to develop new repertoire. Before the end of the year we will also edit and mix all the material for our debut album.

Meanwhile in The Hague: listening, editing, mixing and re-listening...
