Eclipse Plumage (2019)

Eclipse Plumage was written for and first performed by Daniel Walden and Ensemble Oerknal in September 4, 2019 during the Gaudeamus Muziekweek.

It’s my first piece using the Antimachine, an instrument created in collaboration with Jan Bernstein and Mickey van Olst, that generates magnetic fields around the strings of the piano (or any instrument with metal string) — in the last 5′ minutes of the piece you can really listen to the machine, as there’s no electronics, just piano and a few percussion instruments.

Commission: Daniel Walden

Duration: 18–20′
