Joost Lijbaart & Sanne Huijbregts
“Sanne Huijbregts is real a character” – Coen de Jong, Jazzism
Footage is a brand new project by Sanne Huijbregts (of EvenSanne) which combines her love for video, visual art and music.
A firm proponent of our modern day do-it-yourself culture, Huijbregts stands out as an artist whose vision and abilities extend across several mediums. She is not only a genre defying vocalist and composer, but also a talented photographer and film maker. Footage is her way of bringing both aspects of her creativity to bear, in which visuals and music are inextricably linked. As a live performance, Footage is a solo venture, a dreamscape of loops, lyricism and intimate compositions set against a backdrop of non-narrative film. It is the ongoing documentation of a journey, an artistic process of hunting and gathering inspiring sights and sounds, then distilling them into something that is more than the sum of its parts.
“Few drummers equal Lijbaart’s awareness of sound (….) it forces you to listen carefully” – Volkskrant, The Netherlands
Lately, Sanne has occasionally been collaborating with drummer and percussionist Joost Lijbaart, best known for performing across the globe with Yuri Honing for the past 20 years and most recently with his own project Under the Surface. Lijbaart’s sensitive touch on both drums and pitched percussion, as well as his affinity for soundscapes add a new dimension to the music of Footage, bringing interaction and dialogue to the performance without ever detracting from the intimacy of the compositions.
