CELLO & ELECTRONICS CONCERT
Nine Volt is a musical duo between Jan Willem Troost and Henry Vega who
collaborate as a performer/composer relation. The project first came
together to create music for dance and film while inspiring newer works
that were meant for the stage. Nine Volt Motions follows a microminimal
trend throughout most of the music while the interpretation Troost brings
rummages through his history with folkloric, pop and modern music.
The works performed spread across the gamut of virtuosity and simplicity,
each piece diving into a precise musical question and answering with a humor
that is seen in the dynamics between the two performers.
Nine Volt Motions will be released as an album on ARTEksounds in 2019.
As a duo, Nine Volt Motions is a new thing, although it already has a short
and sweet history. Their musical output has been featured with the Prague
Chamber Ballet and in the short film Reclaiming Vision commissioned by the
Oslo Munch Museum. Their new album is a spectrum that pieces together their
works in dance, film and live performance demonstrating a phenomenal passion
for exploration and dedication to new musical ideas and sounds.
