18 en 19 APRIL 2020
Composers Play Their Own Music
At this unique festival composers will perform their own music during the weekend of 18 and 19 April (afternoons and evenings) in the Warehouse Het Veem in Amsterdam.
The program for this edition is very varied. From the chill tunes of the Micha Molthoff Trio and the pop-inspired Jonathan Bonny group, to the eclectic music of the Monotak composers collective and the cutting edge sounds of Ji Youn Kang and her analog and digital electronics. Also composer and flute player Ned McGowan will present his groovy music together with the brilliant percussionist Pepe Garcia, the duo Perforator will play their new program and the 2017 Matthijs Vermeulen prize winner Kate Moore will play with two guest musicians. Two interactive events will take place at the festival. A “Meet & Jam”, where it is possible for the audience to ask the composers questions about the music-making process (How do you start? Are you already writing with a special musician in your mind? How do you bring out what you have in mind? etcetera) and finally an improvisation with participants of the festival spontaneously playing / jamming around the audience. In addition, there is a special dinner, the “Taste of music” concept created by Anthony Leigh Dunstan, for which the composers prepare a delicious meal for their music. At both events there is therefore room for public interaction and a conversation with artists.
