November Music 2019

Genetic Choir will be artist in resident on the November Music festival in Den Bosch (1-10 November 2019), developing a brand new edition of the Loop-Copy-Mutate project from 2017 ! More info will follow soon.


Also about to start:

The House of Sounds and Song

“Het Huis van Lied en Geluid” is project in which Genetic Choir singers will employ listening and voice improvisation skills as a form to develop meaningful contact with people who’s ability for verbal contact have been impaired. We are working together with the Flevohuis in Amsterdam to train volunteers and family of people with e.g. dementia in a 1,5 year project that will be scientifically monitored for its effects.

We are planning to invite interested regulars of Genetic Choir workshops to get involved as well in this special project! (from January 2020)
If you are interested, you can already let us know (via info@genetic-choir.org) or you can become a blog follower to stay updated closely.

“Whatever it was, it was very good!”

surprised audience member after Elevator Music

“These sounds… some of them… I had to laugh, but it also did something to me. I really got this urge to fly!”

Midas Dekkers in reaction to the Insects Concert

“I have been listening full of of fascination to the Genetic Choir pieces. You appear to me as a vocal machine that is constantly searching, evaluating, probing, seducing, without any fear.”
