Peter-Jan Wagemans – Music before the end: Wait
Performed by: Marjolein Koning
Composer Peter-Jan Wagemans depicts an individual who doesn’t know which way to turn in life in Music before the end. He finds himself in a dead end street in the knowledge that there is no going back. Marjolein Konings presents the world premiere of this work for baroque oboe and electronics.
Tom Johnson - Nine Bells
Performed by: Aya Suzuki
Residing in Belgium, the Japanese percussionist Aya Suzuki makes her own interpretation of Tom Johnson’s legendary Nine Bells. The composer not only prescribes the notes to be played, but also the movements of the performer who walks in between large bells suspended from the ceiling. Aya adds a mystical touch in a choreography based on the Japanese dance form Butoh.
