RECENT PROJECTS

Clumped-Dissolved


Innitiated as part of a 'broken telephone' project by Monoták, an Amsterdam composer's collective. Now in the chain between music pieces by Bruinsma and Thomas Myrmel. I gave it the title above with the intention of expanding it onto more SpOp&Bruinsma projects... Thanks to the CBK Rotterdam for the kind support!


The Broken Telephone chain is due April 19 at Splendor, Amsterdam


Tribolumina


A very new live performance percussion thing with video loops (on my part) mixing the played upon materials and abstractions. Bruinsma and Christian Smith banging thoughtfully on found and combined mostly metalic objects.


During Tracking Tilburg festival, 19 November 15:00


Culture Prize South-Holland

Prins Bernhard Cultural Foundation

 

Delighted to have been chosen for the culture prize which is being awarded every two years. The category media art and digital culture is featured in this round. The jury was especially impressed- they wrote- by Knots and Alterations: the way such topics as connectivity and the impact of digital communication are represented.


The event took place April 1st 2022, at the Rotterdam Theater Schouwburg.

Knots


Started as an experimental dance film which was initiated by SpOp as a collaboration in times of Covid. The idea was communicated with drawings, pictures, text and music pieces by Dirk Bruinsma. Dealing with connectivity, entanglement and barriers.
The material was sent from Rotterdam to Belgrade. Once in Belgrade video material was shot with the choreographies and improvisation by the talented Ana Obradović, Jovana Grujić and Nemanja Bošković. The camera work by Jovana Milovanović and Marko Segedinčev was then again sent back to Rotterdam and has undergone a CGI and editing treatment which has resulted in the final Knots.

The project is now ongoing and enriched as a live audiovisual performance with musician Dirk Bruinsma.
