About the Performers

Steven Henry is an Eindhoven based bass clarinetist and composer. For several years he has been combining his acoustic playing with electronic accompaniment and effects.

For this, he mainly uses motion sensors that allow him to manipulate the performance in real time through movements with the bass clarinet and with his hands. During this concert he will use the motion sensors to control the organ of the Catharina Church. A unique combination of technologies from different eras.

In addition to the electronics-driven part of the program, Steven Henry will also perform some works with organist Ruud Huijbregts. All in all, it will be a special afternoon with a unique combination of bass clarinet, church organ and electronics!

Ruud Huijbregts is a well-known organist in the Cathrien and player of The big Verschueren organ.
