**Expanded Radio #12: Truus de Groot
Musician, crackle-box player & electro pioneer Truus de Groot (Nasmak/ Plus Instruments, US/NL) talks with Leonor Faber-Jonker about her musical influences and epiphanies. She’s bringing some of her old-time faves – from Tom Jones to Wire – and will share previously unreleased songs from the 1980s that reflect her moments of inspiration and despair in New York City. But that’s not all. Truus is also inviting some of her old pals, including Bregt Camphuijzen, who she made her first Plus Instruments single with in 1980. Truus might also give us a sneak listen of her residency project at WORM (9-16 November). Expect an afternoon of looking back, looking forward, live sounds & other weirdness!
