Projects make life interesting

Life is too short to just be playing with one single act…. 

So many interesting people, so much beautiful or otherwise inspiring music to be heard, played, shared… 

Sometimes solo, sometimes with a duo, or a trio, or someone else’s project…

Frimangron Presenteert: ParaDox Broedplaats Sessies

Someone who’s work evolves around the fascinating axis between composition and improvisation.

A joint search for an adventure in which the audience can take part too, as the results of each collaboration will be presented in the form of a live performance. 

Frimangron “Reference Recordings” project I & II

Status: completed.

Both the EP’s “Reference Recordings I” and “Reference Recordings II” have been released by TheRoomRecordings and are available on the major platforms.

Frimangron Tori

Status: active. Recordings of live improvisation sessions. Music based on personal stories, memories and dreams, written and/or gathered by me. 

Inspired by ancient rituals in human history of sharing stories, in a circle around the fire. 

Written, recorded and produced @ Frimangron Studio. Preparational study for interactive live performance with small audiences.

As part of a series of stories, right now I’m composing music for the story of Tom and Helena, thus translating the narrative poetry of Helena Gwyn, from her bundle : 

“Onderweg naar mij(n ) Zelf” 

which entails testimonies of her deepest experiences of the transition she underwent (and still is in the process of undergoing).

 

Made possible with the support of Makersfonds Tilburg, in collaboration with Kunstloc Brabant

Frimangron “Reference Recordings III”

Status: active. New compositions by Emiel Scholsberg, recorded @ StudioVanMerloot MusicPros, co-produced by Juan van Emmerloot.

NU – Eva van Pelt

Status: active. Very special project, of a very dear friend. 

With this new project “NU” (now), Eva is pushing the boundaries set by the format of a popconcert. 

She brings new songs, exciting arrangements, spoken word and improvisations, using a performance format that is entirely focused on and centered around “contact”. 

Every concert we consider to be a conversation. A realtime conversation, with everyone present involved. A conversation based upon listening instead of speaking. 

Focus, love, guts, exposure, energy and strength

“It is here, it is now, and it is because you are here” – Eva
