COMPOSITIONS

I mainly write for a few bands that I’m attached to. Dimami has truly been my working band for a long time. But I also composed for HOT (Het Orgel Trio) and De Bende van Drie. In 2002 the piece Nearby Distances (Dimami, Rugby ) was used in the Dutch movie ‘Lulu’.

My main goal in composing is to find a combination of  meaningful (written) notes and powerful forms to improvise on.

 

 

Some pieces that I’ve written and recorded:

Slow City Food (2017)

Utrechtse JazzArchipel (Live @ U Jazz Festival 2017 in TivoliVredenburg)

A piece that I wrote for 7 horns and rhythm section. It contains a fast and almost vicious melody on top of slowly moving chords. The bass plays a repeating motive in 9
