On the programme works of several composers: Serpentine composed by Christina Oorebeek, Together composed by Wim de Ruiter and Second WAKE composed by the Canadian composer Marc Sabat.

Warren Burt wrote two compositions for the Fokker organ (which he performs from Australia, live via the internet) commissioned by and after an idea of artistic director Sander Germanus. During this concert, he is the musical guest of this concert through Skype.
Below are his program notes.
Three Movements for Fokker Organ and Fokker Organ Wren were written for the 31-tone per octave Fokker Organ in the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. During these pieces, I play the organ live, from my home in Daylesford, Victoria, AUstralia (100kms from Melbourne), and hear the results back via Skype. These are algorithmic pieces - I'm not performing on a keyboard, but am steering a midi composing program called ArtWonk through a series of changes and variations. The Midi signals produced by this program are then sent via the internet to the Muziekgebouw where they control the Fokker Organ.
