PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE FOR 2015:

  • There’ll be an electronic-vocal concert of the Genetic Choir at STEIM, as part of a collaboration with Robert van Heumen, later this year.
  • Puppet player and theatre maker Lindai Boogerman asked us to help her make the soundtrack for her next performance: “Een ijsbeer in de tropen” .
  • We are holding the ‘Space Sound Bodies’ sessions in March in Utrecht in order to further or research into voice+dance performance together with the strong community of Improvisation dancers there.
  • Another collaboration with Zone2Source might result in a midsummer’s night concert on location in one of the Floriade ruins in Amstelpark, Amsterdam.
  • We are trying to convince the builders of the new metro line in Amsterdam (NoordZuidlijn) to do a concert in one of their tunnels before the trains run through them.
  • And of course: The 2nd Genetic Choir album is going to come out in 2015! Everything is recorded, now in post-production. Proposed title: “Church Songs for the 21st Century”

Have a great jump into 2015, see you around – and we will keep you posted!  🙂
