ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Composer Meijering has always been interested in creating new musical styles and links with other art forms like dance, film, literature, theatre so consequently addressing new audiences, creating links with other art forms like dance electronic music.

Meijering and bassoonist Kathleen Mclean https://www.kmbassoon.com/ have collaborated on many innovative musical projects with a mission to feature the bassoon as a solo instrument.

In 2018 a very wild piece “the green reed which bends in the wind”scored for 12 bassoons and strings was commissioned and premeried and received with great success by acollection of international bassoon soloistsat the International Double Reed Society in Granada, Spain.

Meijering is never afraid to create new sounds and often scores music for unusual combinations of instruments.
He has released several electro pop albums “The Joker” ,“Come into my Dreamworld” to name a few and Psycho Circus” which was a collaboration with New York guitarist, Keith Calmes.
Meijering crosses over musical genres effortlessly and in this album, featuring bassoon in combination with electronics is a fine example of his innovative musical approach.
We hope that this album will breathe new sounds and colours into the electro dance music scene and to also give the bassoon the ability to show it’s versatility outside of it’s traditional role as just another dusty classical orchestral instrument.

For his work, he invariably searches for possibilities for implementation and joint ventures to bring his contemporary music to the public.
As with the Alzheimer opera (with Bert Keizer's libretto), an unexpectedly great success, and always sold-out halls. But Bluebeard of Holland Opera (5 star review) also managed to fill the stands for weeks.
Yet in his work there is never a bowing to 'commerce'.
He remains completely loyal to his own idiom, and in particular on the harmonic level he knows how to offer the public much more than it is used to or expects.
Playing with recognizable idiom and yet a bass line that goes 'different', the inexhaustible energy that always emanates from his work, and now also, in recent years, blood-curdling moments, with unexpected melancholy make the work of Meijering very popular.
Meijering has developed a musical language through the years with which he makes himself understood, and is therefore regularly approached for special commission compositions. (Such as the Marshall Relief commemoration in the 1st Chamber 30 May 1997, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Concertgebouw, Euro 2000 on the river Maas with the R'dams Philharmosnich and Renée Fleming conducted by Valery Gergiev, the opening of Schouwburg Orpheus Apeldoorn etc.)
He has worked with choreographers Rudi van Dantzig, Toer van Schayk, and his music was used in performances by other choreographers like Conny Janssen, Jiří Kylián, his string quartets "The Girls collection" was used in a play called 'De Verleiders', (the seducers) etc.
In 1998, the Dutch chamber choir performed his opera Gershwin in Blue in Carré,
Holland Opera released several Meijering operas w.o .: Styx (2007-2017), Bluebeard (2010).
He is incredibly popular among the virtuoso musicians who can always excel in his work, such as Janine Jansen, and the recently premiered work for double bass, Lpduo,
the cellists Anssi Karttunen and Doris Hochscheid and the AskoSchönbergensemble olv. Reinbert de Leeuw, with the Cello Concerto "Arco Arena" and his work "Bats from Hell" is a youtube hit thanks to the excellent performances of Matangi and now also the Ragazze Quartet (in November 2014 in the series Tracks in the Concertgebouw).
A new recorder-cd was released in Norway with his works, specially written for recorder virtuoso Dan Laurin and the norwegian orchestra 1B1.

Meh
McLean is a fine bassoonist, but she's crossed a line with this offering. The unadulterated bassoon tone just isn't a very suitable waveform for EDM. The bassoon tracks seem out of place in the mix. I would encourage the artists to try again, and spend more time integrating the bassoon tracks to make them sound more organic and less a mere "add on."
