The fantastic, uncompromising clarinet player Dries Tack, with whom I have had the pleasure to collaborate in the Nadar Ensemble for more than 15 years already, just released his first solo CD, the (literally) breath-taking Adjacent Spaces. On it he plays my brand new Inhibition Space #2 for bass clarinet and live-electronics (2021, 18'), which I wrote for Dries. The composition is part of the ongoing "Inhibition Space" cycle, in which acoustic instruments are extended through self-controlled feedback. Below you can hear an extract.

01/05/22: Live-recording of premiere "inhabit_inhibit" online

For 4 spatialized quartets, 6 feedback soloists & live-electronics. The world premiere was performed at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ by ASKO|Schönberg & soloists of Ensemblekollektiv Berlin, conducted by Baldur Brönnimann and with sound-engineer Florian Bogner. Commissioned by Ammodo/Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ & Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung. Video edit by Kobe Wens.

inhabit_inhibit is an immersive, wide-arched composition of some 50 minutes, dealing with our technologized relationship with ecology and our surroundings, with the run-away-effect and points-of-no-return, with control and the lack thereof, and attempts to find a symbiosis between the hybridized human and the places it inhabits.

De Groene Amsterdammer (Frank Mulder) had interviewed me in advance about this project, as well as NRC Handelsblad (Joep Christenhusz), which also reviewed the premiere later on. More reviews can be found here (Nieuwe Noten/NL) and here (Bachtrack/DE). Future performances include Ultraschall in Berlin, January 2023.

Special thanks go to Frederik Croene, for supplying the rich sonic and visual material for the videos in which he's playing on his piano frame, to Kobe Wens for these video recordings, to Florian Bogner (ICST) for the wonderful and inspiring collaboration in developing the electronics and to Victor Barcelo, Maarten Beirens, Toon Callier, Sylvia Hinz, Brian Penkrot, Bert Prins and Tianghe Zhou for recording a long set of chords on their beautifully out-of-tune pianos for PH#4.

    Nothing made a deeper impression than 'Generation Kill', an explosive synthesis of live and electronic sound by Belgian composer Stefan Prins." (...) The result was mind-bending, and not in druggy, blissed-out way. As the composer intended, it was disturbingly difficult to tell what was real and what was virtual. The musicians were caught in temporal loops, as if Philip K. Dick had written a novel about chamber music. (...)
