Next Monday evening at 20h / 8 pm CEST we will premiere both the newly revised version of Thierry De Mey’s Light Music and Jessie Marino’s brand new piece Six to Five. Also on the program is Winnie Huang’s cool duet Tentacles.
Light Music was written in 2004, however the amazing experts at Centre Henri Pousseur have spent the last year completely re-writing the electronics, finding new ways to make it more live and performer-dependant. The piece is so much fun to perform and I am really excited to be able to show it off next week.
Melissa Portaels and Rebecca Diependaele from Matrix [Centre for New Music] came to chat during the final rehearsal week Light Music and put together this cool little preview video (in Dutch):

The RCA Guitar Ensemble and I will premiere Marino’s newest piece, titled Six to Five. Jessie has created a really cool and fresh new piece for the ensemble.
Come check it out next Monday evening.
This show takes part in the evening programming of an academic conference that Winnie Huang and I have put together as part of our PhD studies at the University and Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp (ARIA). The conference is titled Framing the Normal and we are thrilled to present Håkon Stene as our Keynote speaker. All the details of the conference, including links and the schedule, can be found here: Framing the Normal.
