Hypnotic, repetitive and breathtaking

Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ asked me to help them promote the World Minimal Music Festival (March 30 – April 3). What a great way to start my new career as independent communications professional. This month I will be working full time on PR at the office of the Concert Hall of the 21st Century, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.

Hypnotic, repetitive and breathtaking: since as far back as the 1960s, minimal music has been entrancing people with deceptively simple means. Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam and Muziekgebouw Frits Philips Eindhoven are paying tribute to this exceptional genre with a programme which includes music from Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Simeon ten Holt, Michael Nyman, the Mandara Mountains in Cameroon and Machinefabriek.
