On an evening centred on different flavours of piano, pianist and composer Linde Tillmanns and her band ‘In Sight’ will deliver an organically weird, other-logical and strangely catchy performance. For his set, XA4 invited violin player Hartini van Rijssel, dancer Chris Kokkeel and VJ Studio de Maan to provide an experience to several senses. Apart from works from his new EP “”Glass Gateway released on Phillip Glass’ label, XA4 will also present compositions for violin, piano and electronics that are influenced by gamelan music from Indonesia, where Xavier has his background.
Come to our place, grab a drink, sit on the couch (or dance!), and enjoy the tunes that our talented community is working on during their stay at Treehouse NDSM.
ABOUT LINDE TILLMANNS
Linde Tillmanns and her band 'In Sight' make modern jazz with the intimacy of a singer-songwriter. The music is unapologetic, lyrical and flowy. Themes vary within their set: pieces such as 'Entering the Doughnut' and 'We're all Hypocrites so let's try together' explore the theme of individuals being related to global issues. Newer compositions such as 'Silently Screaming' draw from a more personal source of inspiration: loss and grief. The sextet takes inspiration from jazz masters such as Aaron Parks, McCoy Tyner and Alice Coltrane, as well as Irish and Swedish traditional music.
The style of piano master and composer XA4 (Xavier Boot) is hard to define. His music is a unique blend of acoustic piano, electronic extensions, and soundscapes created using samples from his old Bechstein grand piano. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of musical genres, from minimal and ambient to classical and electronic, XA4 creates a sound that is entirely his own.
Xavier began his musical journey at a young age, to which he quickly showed prodigious talent. He studied classical piano at the conservatories of Amsterdam and Düsseldorf and later pursued a master's degree in live electronic music. Along the way, he has won prizes for his piano playing and composed music for prize-winning films.
