Happy to announce another upcoming CD release on elsewhere for the spring of 2023.
Germaine Sijstermans / Koen Nutters / Reinier van Houdt - Circles, Reeds, and Memories (elsewhere 025)
Three Dutch composers/performers, Reinier van Houdt, Germaine Sijstermans, and Koen Nutters, have each released their own work on elsewhere music in recent years. The three had a concert last December at the Savelberg Chapel, a small church in Heerlen, Limburg (NL), where they played three trio pieces, one written by each: 'Linden' (Sijstermans), 'A Piece with Memories' (Nutters), and 'Harmonic Circles' (van Houdt).
Using various instruments including clarinets, indian harmonium, harmona organ, voices, field recordings, sine tones, objects, and tapes, the trio played in perfect synch, giving the three pieces rich, complex layers of sound and profundity, enveloping the audience in a vibrant yet contemplative space.
