In a month, on 2 December 2022, I will present my book "Van Tendequaar tot Nachtegaal"voorstellen. This will take place at 8.30 pm in Ekeren at the welcoming Cultuurcentrum 252cc in the castle Hof De Bist.
The book contains, in chronological order, a description of just about every composition I made. Each description is a story in itself and should be readable by the knowledgeable as well as the uninitiated. 'Tendequaar' and 'The Nightingale' are compositions that are more or less at the beginning and at the end of those 35 years of my composing music.
To give everyone an idea of what a performance of all this work described sounds like, the book presentation is embedded in a concert of some eight compositions that together paint a picture of the whole. This concert will last just over an hour and will consist of octophonic electroacoustic compositions, performed in 8-channel surround sound. Some pieces will also be accompanied by video.
Organ compositions will also be heard in this event, which is a first! They will be performed on my two self-built and computer-controlled pipe organs, and again partly with video.
After the concert, my sound art installation "Kaeru ga tanbo ni iru", or for those who don't understand Japanese "Frogs in a rice paddy", will be up for viewing and listening.
To conclude, a drink will be offered.
Interested? Then be sure to go to the announcement on the Cultural Centre 252cc website [ LINK ] and reserve your seat(s) there in time. Entrance is free.
The book and accompanying music will be available for consultation and purchase.DATE: Friday 2 Dec 2022 at 8.30 p.m.
It had been pending for a while but now it is real! My book launch "Van Tendequaar tot Nachtegaal" (From Tendequaar to Nightingale) is now planned and will be introduced to the public with a concert. It will be a real party!
A memorable day for more than one reason.
A part that was still missing on this website and that has absorbed quite a lot of my time and energy, gets its first page here today in a series of 3 or 4. I am talking about my MIDI-controlled organs that I build myself and for which I also make the music. The construction process can be found in the "Research" section, the music in "Compositions".
Two links that you can follow
After a trial run of a few weeks, this web gallery was also announced on Instagram and Facebook today. The choice to do this with Hypertetrahedron came a bit by coincidence, because producer and passionate electro musician Yves Schelpe, who I have seen taking his first steps in music, chose this composition to play in his online radio show The EclectriCast episode #022.
An exciting but also a wonderful moment: Switching this website on! Everyone can now see, read, watch, listen.
And you know what? At the same time as starting this website, 3 albums with my music have been published on https://dirkveulemans.bandcamp.com. You can listen to everything there, but you can also listen to that music, right here on this website. Make sure you have good earphones or headphones ready to enjoy the spaciousness in the music and the beautiful sounds
And finally this, the website is not completely finished yet! Some texts still need to be translated, there is still a lot of music to be added and I haven't told anything about my organ building yet. So come and have a look once in a while!
Thank you for your visit!
And from today on, also the English pages started to work. The multi-language system has been organised and launched. Translation work for all the pages here has started
There is a new feature: The news ! The item "News" will be in front if there is real news, i.e. not older than 14 days. Afterwards it will move more towards the back.
The work on the new website has started. The intention is that it complements my book. A first: "W&B" ! Website & Book. You want to have them both!
The requirements are not minimal: get quickly to the desired information, pleasant to visit, responsive design so that it presents itself nicely on almost all screens and with lots of photos, video, audio, text.
