CHAMPDACTION/ RECORDINGS 

NEW CD BY ORGAN DUO 64 FEET - Miniaturues - available now via this website !  

Excellent reviews of Reciprocity by Nico Couck (ChampdAction/Recordings/3) and Dig Deep by Peter Jacquemyn (ChampdAction/Recordings/2)

"Couck brings tremendous technique to Reciprocity: the album really is as much about the composer’s instructions as it is about the musician’s interpretation, and the listener gains a real sense of a dynamic relationship between the two axes." Louise Gray (2014). Polansky et al.. Tempo, 68, pp 86-88.

 

"**** Waarschijnlijk zoals hij als beeldend kunstenaar door te hakken en te slijpen betekenis geeft aan een blok hout, doet hij dat op ‘Dig Deep’ als muzikant: indrukwekkend en stevig, maar evengoed menselijk en kwetsbaar." Koen Van Meel (2014), Kwadratuur.
