Different Voices: Jaap Blonk

2016
7:30pm Medical Society Rooms, Stonegate, York

General event

Ticket: £3.00

Jaap Blonk (born 1953 in Woerden, Holland) is a self-taught composer, performer and poet. He went to university for mathematics and musicology but did not finish those studies. 

In the late 1970s he took up saxophone and started to compose music. A few years later he discovered his potential as a vocal performer, at first in reciting poetry and later on in improvisations and his own compositions.

For almost two decades the voice was his main means for the discovery and development of new sounds.

As a vocalist, Jaap Blonk is unique for his powerful stage presence and almost childlike freedom in improvisation, combined with a keen grasp of structure.

He has performed around the world, on all continents. 

This poetry/performance event will include Jaap Blonk's performance of the Ursonate by Kurt Schwitters.

Time: 7:30pm
