Liquid Identities at the Bimhuis

Liquid Identities, the band started by Federico Calcagno is getting stronger and more stable. We had the opportunity to perform twice at the Bimhuis during the last months.

The first time was with the Keep an Eye international competition, where Liquid Identities got the second prize. It was a nice evening with beautiful people from all over Europe and US.

The second time was with the cycle Rough Diamonds, a cycle where the Bimhuis gives the opportunity to give a concert to 8 different bands of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

Listen here to a fragment of the concert:

With Federico Calcagno on clarinets – José Soares on alto saxophone – Adrian Moncada on piano – Nick Thessalonikefs on drums – and myself on cello.

Tijn Wybenga and AM.OK at the Bimhuis

I was really happy to be part of this Amsterdam Modern Orkest with Tijn. Since the end of the bubble project last August, Tijn started working on a concert with a bigger orkestra that had to be presented at the bimhuis.

It was a great team of international really young players. I’m really glad to be part of them: Tijn Wybenga conductor, Alistair Payne trumpet, Kika Sprangers sax, Odei Al Magut trombon, Federico Calcagno bassclarinet, Andre Lima violin, Pablo Rodriguez violin, George Dumitriu altviolin, Pau Sola cello, Angelo Boltini live electronics, Felix Back synthesizers, Vuma Levin guitar, Allesandro Fongaro contrabass / bassguitar, Alex Brajcovic drums, Ruven Ruppik percussion.

You can listen to the whole live concert in the Bimhuis radio!
