Linden CD – presentation
“Music that fits in no box – light psychedelic atmospheric impro?” (Aad van Nieuwkerk, Vrije Geluiden)
“Unique in the Dutch improvised music. You could argue that Kristina Fuchs has created a new genre.” (Herman ter Loo, Jazzflits)
“Fuchs in turn sounded sensual, teasing and playful” (René van Peer, Eindhovens Dagblad)
“Which again shows how beautiful the voice of Kristina Fuchs to this music folds: warm, sometimes childlike, then again sharply feminine and always sensitive.” (Rinus van der Heijden, Jazznu)
“Muziek waar je geen etiket op kunt plakken.” (Vera Vingerhoeds)

…auf ins Münsterland!!
Looking forward to a trip to Germany where I’ll perform with my former Royal Conservatory The Hague co-student Christian Kappe. Pack the bag with Loopstation and Hang, microphones and loads of cables – should be fun.

Yodel in Hi-Fi
Bart Plantenga: From Kitsch Folk to Contemporary Electronica
Yodel in Hi-Fi explores the vibrant and varied traditions of yodelers around the world. Far from being a quaint and dying art, yodel is a thriving vocal technique that has been perennially renewed by singers from Switzerland to Korea, from Colorado to Iran. Bart Plantenga offers a lively and surprising tour of yodeling in genres from opera to hip-hop and in venues from cowboy campfires and Oktoberfests to film soundtracks and yogurt commercials. Displaying an extraordinary versatility, yodeling crosses all borders and circumvents all language barriers to assume its rightful place in the world of music.
