In 2006 I set the entire third book by poet F. van Dixhoorn, a
collection of 6 poems called takken
molenwater/kastanje jo/hakke tonen/hakke tonen/uiterton/molen in de
zon, commissioned by the Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst.The setting was composed for an
ensemble consisting of Dix, piano and vibraphone, and was intended for
the poet himself to read.
Though the piece has been done a few times now, this is still the only
recording I have. It's the first performance of the piece, with Dix
reading and Dante Boon playing piano and Arnold Marinissen playing
vibraphone, and the recording was made by me using less than perfect
equipment. I'm offering the two hakke
tonen movements, or 1/3 of the full piece.
