Zesgehuchten is a soundtrack to the first time I saw the last breath of living creature, who I loved.
I was only 6 years old, but I still see this image of our cat who was just run over by a car, trying to breathe very vividly. It all happened in this part of the village, called Zesgehuchten, in a neighbourhood near the countryside on a hot summer day. I tried to turn this very sad image into sound. The performance is a collaboration with violin player Ben Mathot.
No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
Job Roggeveen is composer and filmmaker. He’s the guy behind award winning indie-revue project Happy Camper. He toured the Netherlands with a large group of singers and musicians. He’s also part of Emmy winning and Oscar nominated animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke. Before, Job felt convenient in his position behind an animated character or a group of singers. Now for the first time, he decided to compose music under his own name. Cinematic piano pieces, with sparkling melancholic melodies, sometimes completed with strings, electronics and percussion.
