‘Archive dive’, a commissioned piece from Gaudeamus and Stranded FM

Gaudeamus and Stranded FM commissioned five contemporary artists to dig up music from the vast archives of 75 years of Gaudeamus and make something new with what they found. On 11 February, they premiered the results via a livestream. The streaming features brand new creations by me, saxophone player and performance artist Elsa van der Linden, percussionist for Oerknal and DJ Christian Smith, Panenkov (the drone alias of multi-instrumentalist Marlon Penn) and Stranded FM organiser and DJ Luke Cohlen. My piece, titled “Chorus”, starts at 13’50”.

Thanks to Allard Pierson – the Collections of the University of Amsterdam.
