The lutist Jozef van Wissem is one of the most singular artists around.
He regards the twin-necked, 24-stringed lute as transcendental instrument, one that should be given a much higher status in contemporary music than it currently enjoys. This Limburger in New York has a rich back catalogue to dive into, including high profile collaborations with the likes of Jim Jarmusch and James Blackshaw.
If you have never seen one of van Wissem’s spellbinding shows, you really should do so.
Support comes from Martijn Comes, a Dutch composer who has a special interest in sound character in various musical traditions, with a special gravity towards electroacoustic composition. His symphonic, romantic layers of electronic noise and haunting soundscapes are a beautiful counterpoint to Jozef van Wissem’s hypnotic lute playing.
