string trio & photography
“…one of the highlights of the festival November Music.” Rene van Peer 12-11-17, Brabants Dagblad online
“… Also exceptionally impressive was the work by composer and photographer Merijn Bisschops. He combined razor-sharp projected photos of beautiful desolate landscapes in which millions of years of geological processes where visible, with music for three strings. The music was as layered as the images, sometimes abrasive and harsh, sometimes sensitive and full of tender colours.” Rene van Peer 13-11-17, Brabants Dagblad
