Subscribe to Amarte Studio Concerts’ channel for more live concerts: Follow Amarte Studio Concerts on social media: Instagram: Facebook: In Contrast is a new project by drummer and composer Willem Romers. After gigging a great deal with bands such as Kika Sprangers Quintet and Coal Harbour, Willem decided it was time for his very own musical outburst. And we could not be happier to have him at de Roode Bioscoop, presenting his brand new record that will be coming out on April 1st! The music on In Contrast is all about showing contrasts that are often part of our daily life. Silence and chaos, light and dark, the future and the past, simplicity, and complexity. The result alternates between electronic soundscapes, melancholic compositions, energetic grooves, and serene, timeless moments. In this new adventure, Willem seeks freedom and space to let the music breathe. That freedom and space were found in the instrumentation of this trio with Jesse Schilderink on tenor saxophone and Jelle Roozenburg on guitar. Their intuitive approach makes no composition or concert sound the same and the connection between each other and the audience is a core element of this special lineup.
