Two American duos will be stopped by Amsterdam and were our guests for a workshop at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and for an evening of composed and improvised music at Splendor Amsterdam.
It was a day of of sonic sophistication that ranged from sheer rawness to sublime beauty.
And lots of bassoon with and without electronics!
The duos were:
Of an implacable subtraction
with bassoonist/composer Dana Jessen and composer/performer Paula Mathussen
Architeuthis Walks on Land
with bassoonist/composer Katherine Young and violist/improviser Amy Cimini
