Club Fluxus: But What About – Pendeltrap

The American composer/conductor Patrick David Clark studied with Louis Andriessen at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. It was here that he composed Light Bending Forward, which was performed several times by the Hague ensemble But What About. This collaboration led to Pendeltrap, a project focussing on Clark, with concerts and workshops in New York and in the Netherlands. Andriessen also featured on the programme.

Fluxus, which means ‘fluid’ or ‘constantly changing’, is a series in Club Nine. This series focuses on composers, young ensembles and musicians who together showcase the latest developments in contemporary music. Where possible, the composers will be present and will discuss their own work. The small-scale and informal set-up places the audience in very close contact with the performers.
