I’m preparing for my residency at Kunstencentrum Nona in Mechelen which starts this Monday.
I’m inviting 9 other players from Europe and US to form a Large ensemble and to play the music I have written for them…We will also be making a recording and play two concerts at the end of next week.
Hope all goes well….. !

A little while back now I wrote a piece for minimum 10 players called ‘Floating Cities’. It is based on an absurd experiment to build certain parts of cities on floating devices to make them withstand the rising sea level. This piece will be performed this Wednesday at 7pm at DeSingel by the ‘Young Conservatory’ ensemble supervised by Dirk Proost
Supersonic Fuzzgun 1. is a solo piece for effect pedals without any instrument attached to it. I presented it for the first time during the concert series ‘This Is Not A Concert Hall’ from the composition department of the RCA. You can hear the recording below. !!!Carefull!!! Sometimes it’s very high so be sure to adjust your volume!
Dirk Proost is a pedagogue working with talented young classical musicians. He tries to open up their views on music by introducing them to pieces by Cage, Oliveros, Feldman,... I wrote a piece for his students called 'Floating Cities' which is based on a utopian experiment to build parts of cities on interchangeable floating devices to withstand the rising of the sea level.
It is written for a minimum of 10 players of any instrumentation. It will be premiered at DeSingel Antwerp on the 28th of March (Witte Zaal) and played again on the 13th of May in Lier at afestival called 'Lierische Kunsten'
I'll be playing a guitar/bass pedal and tape player solo set on the 27th of February at a concert series called 'This Is Not A Concert Hall' curated by the composition department of the RCA in Antwerp. Will start around 8 at room 147 in DeSingel Antwerp.
The relatively new duo of Ann Eysermans (viola da gamba) and myself played a concert at the Citadelic concert series at the SMAK museum in Gent. It was a great night, great audience and also a great second set by the Joëlle Léandre and Sebastian Gramms, both on double bass.
