I performed with Sofia Dragt at the finals of Art Rocks competition at Paradiso.

Art Rocks is a contest that combines art and music. The musicians have to compose a piece to one of the 50+ artworks. The best soundtracks will battle it out tonight in the final of the music competition. The winning act, voted by the jury will win €1000.

We performed Sofia’s song Blameless with myself on cello, Sander Huting on guitar and Terry Bloeme on electronic drums (SPD). Here is the video clip to the song, that she won because she won the semi-final. The song was inspired by the artwork Meisje met haar in het water, by Co Westerik and was filmed by VERS TV.

Finalists included Colin Mooijman with band // Sofia Dragt // Jezekiah // PsySo // Teddy Macrander // KUZKO // Romy & Daan // Tricycle and the winner was KUZKO! There were also guest performances by Blaudzun en Yung Nnelg (who I recorded at Red Bull Studios, read that blog post here). The hosts for the evening were Tamar Tieleman, Waldo Volmer, Heske ten Cate and Luuk Heeze.
