Composer's Treat

Buitenwerkplaats is collaborating with the composer Aspasia Nasopoulou to invite composers to a (re)treat. The artist is offered a week at Buitenwerkplaats in splendid isolation.  A week to imagine, experiment and be away from the common. A week to be close to nature. A week that is completed with a public concert. Aspasia strongly believes in the power of experiment and new encounters, to stimulate artistic talent in a time that we need them, more than ever.

Artists are curious, artists are sceptics.
Artists are brave, artists don’t fail
Artist have a point of view
Artists pauze for thought
Will Gompertz

Aspasia Nasopoulou

Thursday 1 Sep 2016

Aspasia Nasopoulou is a Greek composer living in Amsterdam since 2002. She is working on new musical pieces at Buitenwerkplaats quite regularly. In this quiet and remote environment it is easier for her to concentrate on the work, so composing in this setting is sometimes easier and faster then in her own studio.
