About the event
Benjamin the Council
Over the last year Ben has recorded an album called:”Namen”, which translates into:”Names” on a four-track cassette recorder and is currently working on a record called:”Plaatsen”, which translates into:”Places”. He himself regards these instrumental projects as side projects that have lasted for about two years now, as he always aspired to write music with lyrics, but could not find enough words for an entire album. His performance in Touchstone will be a mix of more melancholic songs combined with cassette tape loops, as well as a bunch of his instrumental work.
Johannes is an interdisciplinary performer, composer and improviser who attempts to translate the beauty he experiences around him through music, movement, words and sound.
In this concert he will play a collection of composition and improvisation for cello and voice. His pieces are vastly different and colorful - sometimes big and complex, sometimes sweet and gentle. Every piece reflects a different part of his own journey in the last years and has therefor its own unique world and its own story to tell.
He fetches inspiration from jazz, pop, folk, contemporary classical and minimal music.
