Textures (2017)

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

Music for string instruments in combination with abstract landscape photography made in Iceland as part of the Fljótstunga Artist in Residency 2015. World première at the 12th of November by Prisma String trio, November Music ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
