Reve Terborg is a wonderful modern dancer working in Amsterdam, whom I had the pleasure to work with several times. Check out her latest show reel, with (exclusive) film shots from projects e.g. Play House and Glass of the Microscope.
In this documentary Wayne Shorter deals with almost all existential questions you might have, in music and words… A true giant, alive today my friends. Enjoy.
"If no one knows what’s coming (in the music), it takes as much courage for the audience to seek the unexpected as we have to as musicians. Thinking we’re finding it. Finding the way to use potential."
Last Saturday I saw the piece Victory Over the Sun in the Stedelijk Museum. Unique tension in music by my friend Henry Vega, directed by Sjaron Minailo. Amateur performers intervened the soprano singers acting rituals on stage to reclaim the sun and demolish tradition… The thrilling atmosphere of the piece opens a window to different times of cultural revolutionary perceptions. The sharp textures in sound and image and big symbolic concept worked for me.
My work is front page news on WIRED USA today! Exclusive release of the Yeasayer - Glass of the Microscope music video that I directed on WIRED for a couple of days. After that we’ll release it to the rest of the world.

Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda presented his new piece Superposition in the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam last Friday. He transformed the stage in a giant interface in which two performers are organising data that translate to more then 20 screens synchronous visuals to the sonology composition. Is this theatre or a music performance? Or should it have been presented as an ongoing installation? Either way, it gave me good inspiration for the data-visual work I’m designing for dance and film. Explosive stuff.
Seats where more then sold out last August 19th in the EYE Film Museum, where I shown the premiere of my film project Motion Games in collaboration with Lucas van Woerkum. Based on the composition by Thomas Beijer. A live performance with music played by Rosanne Philippens (violin) and Yuri van Nieuwkerk (piano). Choreographer Lukas Timulak (NDT) translated the interaction between violin and piano to a choreography for the Italian dancer Valentina Pedica (first prize winner International Dance Competition Spoleto 2013). @ Grachtenfestival
I got invited by VICE London to give a talk at FOAM in Amsterdam tomorrow August 14th about my visual research and the theme “the power of the image” for a select audience. Also my main man Justin Blyth will be showcasing, amongst others.

My video installation “particle collider under construction” was visited heavily in the main entrance of the EYE film museum the last week of June. I placed 4 sync screens showing my experimental work inside a wooden sculpture (by Ivo Bakker) suggesting the particle collider inside CERN - where I’m filming my new project Symmetry.
