Sunise Concert 24h Resonance with Merlijn Twaalfhoven
11 October 2015, Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, Amsterdam
It was beautiful performing and creating in this context: How the pitch dark outside changed to blue and red and yellow with the upcoming sun, along with our Genetic Choir compositions and the dancers we invited, was simply overwhelming.
Motto of this full hour of Genetic Choir music was “The City Awakes”.
From surprising the audience with torches and whispers to the movie-like scenes on the outside stairs and later with everyone on the 1st balcony of the foyer – it was an unexpectedly satisfying hour of music and visuals.
Afterwards, the Genetic Choir participated in the ‘World Music block’ that was curated by Yinske Silva. The various collaborations with the professional singers of that block lay the foundation for working with them further in our “Church Songs for the 21st Century” concert on 4 december 2015.
All this was part of a 24 hour event of vocal music: 24h Resonance
