Hoogtij Festival: “After the overwhelming response to their work during the previous edition, they are now guests for the second time to create and perform a special composition in the scenery of Groede. During the Hoogtijfestival, this composer duo will immerse the village center in sound that stimulates your senses. With spatially arranged long-throw speakers as a choir and two live sopranos, the Grote Kerk and its surroundings serve as the backdrop for a landscape opera the duo has patented."

“For ten years, they have been traveling throughout Europe, creating special compositions in special places – from the Dachstein Glacier in Austria to the Belvedere on the Oranjewoud Estate – that put the listener at the center of the performance. The music makes you look at the village in a different way; the space makes you listen to the music differently. The sound changes as you continue your journey through the environment. This makes you look at familiar places with different eyes.”

“Like witnessing heavenly singing in an open-air cathedral.” **** Volkskrant
