10 May 2018 Music and Movement
by Kate Moore Composer
On May 10 violinist Joe Puglia, 2018 Zielsverwanten artist in residence, performed his program Music and Movement at The Muziekgebouw aan het Ij. For this performance Joe performed my major work “Synaesthesia Suite” for solo violin and automatic instrument, for which we adapted for the Fokker-Huygens organ which is housed in the Kleinezaal of the Muziekgebouw. It is one of the best kept secrets of the Muziekgebouw and is a treasured historical instrument designed by the physicist Fokker, featuring a tuning system of 31 tones. The piece was tuned for this temperament.
