Limitless instruments at WAVELENGTH

Date
Saturday 19 October 2019
Time
Explanation
Part of the festival WAVELENGTH
Location

How does an instrument determine the content of a composition?

And what if the instrument can adapt to the composer and not the other way around? The Dudok Quartet explains the development of the bow and the influence on the possibilities of their string instruments. Does a bow from 1770 sound different than today? How does the ability of the instrument influence the composer? Researcher, guitarist and composer Aart Strootman turns the issue around and finds out what happens if composers are not limited by the possibilities of an instrument.
