Archive Dive: Julian Alexander

Invited by Utrecht’s online radio Stranded FM, Julian Tjon Sack Kie creates work based on research at the vast archive of Gaudeamus. The composer, also known as Julian Alexander, is focusing on the integration of electronic music within acoustic music, inspired by non-western philosophies and nature. In his composition echoes from the past Julian dives not only into the past of Gaudeamus, but also in his Surinamese heritage, where he explores the effects of colonial history.
