Late Thursday at KANAL
Heavily influenced in his early youth by the contemporary Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, who described himself as both minimalist and easy-listening, Joram Feitsma began composing neoclassical pieces on the piano.
In 2018, what was only a hobby became a second job for this Utrecht resident in his thirties, who started to give regular concerts at the Muzieklokaal, a classical venue in his city, before signing to Bigamo, the more experimental subdivision of Innervisions, the Berlin-based electronic label. Titled Under, a first album was released in 2019. Feitsma then played in Paris, Berlin and at the Sacred Ground festival.
He proposes a kind of ‘furniture music’, as Erik Satie would say, melancholy ambient, piano pieces that claim to be minimalist and electro-acoustic but above all seek to move. In short, Chilly Gonzales and Nils Frahm have a lot to worry about: the next generation is here and it’s as talented as it is inventive!
