Job description: Festival promotion, marketing and communications at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ for World Minimal Music Festival (edition 2013, 2011 and 2009).

Hypnotic, repetitive, breath-taking and occasionally challenging: minimal music has been entrancing listeners with its deceptively simple means since the ’60s. That’s when composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich and Terry Riley began exploring new ways of musical expression, rebelling against the experimental twelve-tone music that was perceived as overly sophisticated and complicated.
