cd 'Hommage'

november 2023

On his latest CD, Cor Ardesch pays tribute to composer Bert Matter, at the Kam-organ of the 'Grote Kerk' in Dordrecht. Some decades ago, Bert Matter was Cor's Improvisation teacher at the Conservatory of The Hague - you can still hear it when Cor improvises! This CD comes in a luxurious digipack: as always, it was a pleasure to cooperate with my brother to create a design fitting the impressive music. You can listen to short music examples and order the CD at the website of Cor Ardesch.

To be able to somewhat assess the depth in these works, I have added side view pictures for each work. But it remains a photo and you can only see the full effect when you can have a real look from all sides.

Logo design

Juli 2022

Logo design for the Flentrop Organ Wageningen Foundation, promoting the organ in the Grote Kerk in concerts and more events, in which the organ plays a prominent role. To show the central place of the organ, a stylised organ pipe forms the letter l. From it, sound waves of the organ are portrayed, that also symbolise the 'flow' in a broader sense of the word. For this design a modern, rounded font is used and a bright, powerful contrast colour to reflect the new, contemporary use of the organ.

New: free and gentle

August 2021

Finally a new painting! Due to my Musicology studies at the University of Amsterdam and my work as a graphic designer, not much time is left to paint. But here's another one, entitled free and gentle. A work consisting of various shapes of mdf layered on top of eachother, painted in acrylic combined with several textures, such as sand an jute. This way extra depth is created. Would you like to have a look at this (and other) works, please feel free to make an appointment!
