I am happy to announce that I’ve been awarded the Edison Jazz in the Netherlands for the CD TESTIMONI- with trumpetplayer Eric Vloeimans and Matangi Quartet. Thanks to everyone involved!
Rosefire is the new project for 2013-2014. With the cast of Testimoni we will recieve now Mezzosoprano Tania Kross in new program, an ode to the woman, creativity, the muse.
You are what you play! We are coming back with the well received and awarded tour Testimoni. And ofcourse, also in 2013 together again with Eric Vloeimans & Matangi Quartet.
This spring we will do a project with the wonderful Brazilian artist Lenine & Martin Fondse Orchestra (the new name of Starvinsky Orkestar). Moers Festival and Music Meeting Confirmed!
On sunday, March 25, Eric, Matangi and me made our appearance in the dutch television program Vrije Geluiden. We performed music from the cd Testimoni. ‘Floc de Neu’, ‘Solo Vibrante’ and ‘O Mar’.
Since January 2011 I’m the artistic leader in BEAM Orchestra, Tilburg. November 2011 we did a wonderful project with composer/trumpet player/inspirator Markus Stockhausen.
For the HR Big Band I wrote 2 projects: Cottacatya & City Lights. Until today, there is a rich tradition in Radio Big Bands in Germany. WDR, NDR and also the HR (Hessischer Rundfunk)
The combined forces of Basement Jaxx‘s uniquely skewed take on dance music, the Metropole Orkest‘s cutting edge approach to orchestral interpretation took blaze by storm for two nights
Bauer was a pop duo from Amsterdam (years active: 1999-2006) comprised of former Bettie Serveert drummer Berend Dubbe and Sonja van Hamel. Watch the videos.
If you’re a drummer you can just bang the drums. Of course you could also make a cup of tea. Providing you share a stage with Matthew Herbert. And we shared the stage on November 11, 2010.
Since 1997 I’ve been writing compositions and arrangements for the Metropole Orchestra. Over the years I worked with many different artists and groups, TV programmes and CD’s.
