Momentum

Motion

The first ideas for Motion emerged in 2002 as a sketch for one of the parts of The Flood, Requiem. Later, in 2007, this music evolved into the score for the short film Ports in Motion, commissioned by Zeeland Seaports. This completely new version was released on the cd House of Mirrors.

Passacaglia

My chamber opera Kabaal (Row) from 2001 tells the story of the historic feud between the Dutch naval heroes of the 17th century, Michiel de Ruyter and Cornelis Tromp. Halfway through the opera for tenor, baritone and percussion, sounds a touching aria, based on a simple descending four-note pattern. Passacaglia is an instrumental version of this aria.

La Casa degli Specchi

The beginning of La Casa degli Specchi emerged in 2009 as one of the possible ideas for Delta Dance, a composition for the Clazz Ensemble. The core of the piece consists of only five notes, reflected and mirrored in many, many ways.

Kick

The first version of Kick was created in 2008 as Kick out the Muse, a work for chorus and orchestra based on texts by Federico Garcia Lorca. Lorca describes composing and performing music, as well as listening to music as a purely physical activity (sing with the sound of rushing blood). In the spring of 2011 I did a complete reworking of this music, resulting in this new piece Kick.
