For the July edition of ‘Live At Our Place’, we welcome you for a night focused on different piano flavours. From the weird jazzy sounds of Linde Tillmanns to electronic mixes by XA4, you will enjoy the piano like never before.
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 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 Boot, also known as XA4, 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.
