"Meditative and Sophisticated"
Amsterdam, Wed, 24. Sep 2003Favourable review of Muso's CD "Dream Thoughts" in 'Onkruid' of March/April 2003.

"In countries like Turkey, India and Japan wind instruments assist people in their search for higher things. It is nice meditating to the sound of a reed pipe played by a dervish or Zen monk.
The Dutchman Muso seems to have a great affinity to Zen. His bass clarinet is not a traditional reed pipe, of course, but the mouthpiece does have a reed for making sound. The instrument may sound unearthly low but also very high, and covers the entire scala of musical creation.
Muso performs his sound experiments with tenderness, care and affection and with a great feeling for silence, too, and in that way a kind of music arises that on the one hand is meditative and on the other also suits modern sophisticated musical taste.
A clever and nice piece of work, for Muso is able to realize this without making concessions." (WvdZ, in 'Onkruid' 152, March/April 2003)
