JÜRG FREY & ROBERT FRANK

today I’m posting 2 compositions: ‘met zachte beweging’ [‘gentle- movement’] dedicated to composer Jürg Frey, from whom i learned so much through his music, writings and lecturing in the last 5, 6 years, and ‘ I have come home’ which i dedicate to photographer, filmmaker Robert Frank, who showed me the acceptance of beauty no matter how beauty wishes to show herself,
or to put it in another way, the process of learning to accept.


USE HEADPHONES FOR THE BEST DETAILED LISTENING EXPERIENCE!
Listening to your iPhone or other small devices without headphones will decrease your listening experience.
A lot of the music is soft, in terms of loudness. This is an essential part of the music.

In this fragment of a recent rehearsal you can get an impression of a circular movement working.

Ic stont op hoghen berghen [for Anton Webern]

let’s start the new year with the release of a new electric souvenir song we made last july. ” Ic stont op hoghen berghen ” [I stood on the highest mountain/s] is a tribute to Anton Webern, a composer who we both love and who, now 70 years ago, was mistakingly killed by an american soldier who, haunted by this terrible accident, took his own life a few years later.
