Germaine Sijstermans is a gifted clarinettist with a love for contemporary repertoire. She also writes her own compositions in which silence, sound, space and light are central. Every performance is a fleeting event, no concert is the same. Sijstermans’ music is based on listening in silence as the fundamental tone, the tone material is abstract, the effect organic. In an unconventional setting you will be taken into the world of Sijstermans.
Germaine Sijstermans lives in Heerlen (NL) and is connected to production house Intro (Maastricht) where she has been regularly heard / seen since 2014. From 2017 to 2019 she will be in residence at Intro with the support of Via Zuid.
