Lecture: Listening To The 21St Century Music – Saskia Lankhoorn & Brechtje van Dijk


Composed music is constantly developing. Whether it concerns new pieces for traditional acoustic instruments, electronic music, or even entirely home-made instruments, composers are always discovering new sounds. But how can you learn to listen to unprecedented sounds?

Pianist Saskia Lankhoorn and composer/singer Brechtje van Dijk a.k.a. Bec Plexus take a look at recent music which inspires them and appeals to their imagination. They will focus mainly on the most recent contemporary music, but the developments in 20th-century music which preceded this will also be discussed.
