September 28, 2014 | Guus Janssen & Melle Weijters

Concert Fokker organ | 2014-09-28, 11.00 hours | Small Hall - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam


The point of focus during the concert 'MicroBlues' is improvised music within the meantone, 31 and 41-tone tuning system. Guus Janssen and Melle Weijters jointly explore what kind of new opportunities these systems offers for improvised music, especially the blues. As a regular performer on the Fokker organ musician and leading composer Guus Janssen has already ample experience with 'light music' on this 31-tone organ. Jazz Guitarist Melle Weijters dedicated many years to fretless and microtonal guitars and is a specialist in this field. The varied styles of improvisation and themes are supported by the use of the latest computer technologies that will lead to a surprising result.
