Composer and performer Merlijn Twaalfhoven will not only share his story about how music connects, but also invite the participants to actively join in preparing the opening performance of the People’s Pavilion.
Merlijn Twaalfhoven (The Netherlands) is a composer and performer of interactive music concerts. In art school, he was trained to deliver the highest achievements, fight competing colleagues and reach for reputation and fame. But when het started to work outside of the bubble of art music, when he travelled to places of conflict and turmoil, he learned a radical different approach to his profession. It’s not the performance on the stage, but the experience of the whole context that matters. When all senses are united, music can create meaningful connections between people and between people and their surroundings. In this workshop, Merlijn will not only share his story but also invite the participants to actively join in preparing the opening performance of the People’s Pavilion, that same afternoon from 15:30 - 16:00.
Merlijn Twaalfhoven is most known by the remarkable projects he creates, connecting styles, cultures but first of all people. Twaalfhoven’s intention is to bridge worlds of contrast, and to mix unusual elements to a new unity. Classic and modern, western and oriental, groovy and subtle music is combined into a lively metaphor for nowadays world.
