Description

‘These past few years, I have been composing music for many literary concerts, where writers tell their story live and I create a musical scenario based on it. I then arranged some of these compositions for the band and took them with me to the studio. The entire score was new to the musicians. Although we had only two days to record everything, I felt certain this would not be an issue, since the band is such a close-knit group. Plus, something special often happens when musicians are still exploring material. And you can hear it, too. The result is a mysterious album featuring layered, richly resonant pieces in which the musicians take turns telling their own musical story.’ (Corrie van Binsbergen)

All compositions on this release were originally composed by Corrie van Binsbergen for stories and poems by famous Dutch writers. She later arranged her compositions for her ‘all-star’ band VanBinsbergen Playstation.
