Three young makers have been invited by Festival Dag in de Branding to write new compositions. In season 21/22 these artists-in-residence are presenting themselves to the public. Thomas van Dun has a composition in mind in which he creates a trance experience. In cooperation with a light artist, he wants to immerse the audience in a total experience. Julian Maple-Oliveira is working on an experimental song cycle for acoustic instruments, self-built micro-controllers and his own sound design software. The ‘lament’ is a musical form that has been used for many centuries. Harpist Michela Amici researches the lament of the modern woman. What does she have to say, and how can music and scenography help to convey her message?
