The Living City project is about the universal energy amongst people in the city.
Amsterdam, Netherlands -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/30/2013 -- Diederik Rijpstra is a Dutch trumpet player and composer. He has spent a lot of time in New York in the past 4 years. His brand new album, The Living City, was written, recorded and produced there. He was intensely interested in the universal energy amongst people in the city of New York, but also other cities he has visited. The Living City is about that energy, the energy that makes the city the city it is. He is delighted to inform all that they would be able to hear the music from this project for the first time, exclusively at 'Trouw De Verdieping', in Amsterdam on May 23rd, 20:00.
It's not a concert though. The large industrial space in the basement of this former print press will host an interdisciplinary performance in which the music of The Living City is the key element. Diederik has asked several other artists to pick a track on the record and use it as a source for inspiration. Also, because the album is about the universal energy between people in a city; about the exchange of ideas and inspirations; about interaction and friction; working together with a video artist, dancer, actor, performance artist, visual artist and writers, will re-create The Living City for real.
So far Diederik has financed the production of the album on his own including recording, musician's fees, mixing and mastering. Now, for the physical production of the album, the design and the pressing of the discs, he requires funding support. He has applied for funds at the Amsterdam Funds for the Arts, but that won't be enough to have all the costs covered.
