Jozef van Wissem

Jozef van Wissem

Saturday

Enter the dark, mythical world of minimalist composer and praised lute-player Jozef van Wissem. Accompanied by his twin-necked, 24-stringed baroque instrument, Van Wissem creates strange, sonic soundscapes by blending avant-garde with baroque music compositions. Creating an elementary and intense sound - often surrounded with a Christian-mystical appeal -, Dutch-born Van Wissem pushes the lute’s agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles.
