'There's a lot of space to play around with, where you want to put each note, and that's what music is all about !'  Josh Layne #harptuesday

Jeroen van Vliet piano

The utopia EP, 5 compositions for piano solo, in co-creation with  Jeroen van Vliet and Maarten Vos, is available as a digi-download. The magic touch of Jeroen's piano transforms the music into an imaginary landscape. It has been such an amazing adventure! 


as if you tell a story

To me it is important not to take the written rhythm and dynamics to literally. I consider my breathing my metronome. That's why i recommend that you play the composition as if you tell a story - with here and there a (little) pause because you have to think for a moment or with acceleration as a result of your enthusiasm. When you play intuitive, the music will become fluent and natural. Music from the heart will become emotion and you will touch the listener with harp and soul .. with music &love.

i listen !

It means the world that harpists/musicians play my compositions and share it with another audience or apply my recorded music to their dance/theater or spoken word performance. I love to hear/see you perform Harp and Soul Music and experiment with it, as you did during the A BIRD creativity contest. - if you feel inspired please mail me your soundcloud or youtube - i really applaud and appreciate how you make my music your own. -AV
