Dutch cellist, composer, and producer Maarten Vos performed live at Le Guess Who? 2019, on the invitation of festival curators Iris van Herpen & Salvador Breed. We can now share the recordings of the full performance thanks to Concertzender, who captured the show at the Janskerk in Utrecht.
Composer Maarten Vos is what you’d call a voyager: he transforms traditional instrumentation into newfangled sounds and wields technology like something intricately human. Celebrated as much for his outlier, exploratory approach to the cello as his work with modular synthesizers, he’s part of an exciting movement of artists – along with Alex Smoke, Colin Benders and Joep Beving – whose singular craft overlaps a multitude of disciplines and eras.
