MatchingArts Collective

Newsletter #2 - October 2015

The MatchingArts Collective is working hard and growing fast!
We have big plans and are talking with international composers organisations. More on that later, but in this month's newsletter you can read about our festive opening on the 13th of November: save the date! We also give you an update of the new publications by Edition MatchingArts and the new Events of our members. 

The festive opening of the MatchingArts Collective
As you all know we’ve been active and online for almost half a year now and we would really like to meet you all in person and celebrate the existence of the MatchingArts Collective. Therefore we would like to invite you to come to the Utrecht Conservatory on Friday the 13th of November at 19.30. There will be small concerts with work published by Edition MatchingArts and the founders of the MatchingArts Collective will be present to tell you about our vision and future plans. There will be plenty of time to ask us all of your questions and share your ideas with us and the other MA-C members. If you know people who might be interested to hear about the MA-C, you are very welcome to send them an invitation for this evening! Do you want to follow the preparations for this festive opening? Please like us on Facebook and we will keep you updated! If you have any questions, just send us an email.

New compositions
Every month we'll put one of the MatchingArts members in the spotlight and tell you something about them. 

Intermezzo with Oren Ziv
This month Edition MatchingArts published Oren Ziv’s piano quintet Sevens’.
‘Sevens’ was the first piece Oren wrote as a composition student at the Utrecht Conservatory where he will graduate this school year. 

He first studied Jazz composition in Israel, where he was born and raised. 
Oren wrote the base for ‘Sevens’ back in Israel when he was still a Jazz composition student, but since he wanted to make a more classically oriented piece out of it he decided to keep the material waiting for a while.The idea for the opening of ‘Sevens’ comes from a song called 'no. 11811' by a Polish metal band called Indukti. Yes, Oren was kind of a metal head when he was younger. He actually started composing around the age of 16 for a progressive metal band! But don’t be scared; Oren can also relate to Mendelssohns ‘Lieder ohne Worte’, Ravel’s music and the soundtracks of Danny Elfman and Bernard Herrmann. Do you want to hear ‘Sevens’? There’s a recording available on Oren’s SoundCloud!

7 & 9: Children at Work & Rinaldo Rinaldini - Pordenone (Silent film festival)
17, 18, 24 & 25: Gilgamesj - Dordrecht (Music theatre)
25: Gilgamesj - Hendrik Ido Ambacht (Music theatre)

Friday the 2nd of October, MA-C member and co-founder Daan van den Hurk gave a beautiful piano recital in the Waalse Kerk in Breda. His program consisted of compositions by living composers and included pieces by three MA-C members. Daan played a piece by American composer John Corigliano followed by a piece of one of his students Jeroen D’hoe. Daan himself studied composition with D’hoe and concluded this part of the program with a piece by his own hand: ‘All Sorts of Fantasies’. The concert also included Henry Kelder's ‘Tristan da Cunha’ and as an encore Daan played ‘Lullablues’ by Anne-Maartje Lemereis.
