About event

Jozef van Wissem - Dutch minimalist composer and lute player, the author of the soundtrack to the film "Only Lovers Survive" comes to Ukraine with concerts.

“Being simultaneously an avant-garde composer and a baroque lute player, the Dutch musician van Wissem easily combines the seemingly incompatible,” The New York Times.

In 2013, he received an award at the Cannes Film Festival for the best original music for the film Jim Jarmusch "Only Lovers Left Alive". With Jarmusch, he also recorded several albums. Joseph is known for his unconventional approach to the use of lute - an instrument typical of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, but more than unexpected in modern music. Despite the sophisticated electronic sound processing, van Wissem largely remained faithful to the traditional timbre, resonance and technique of playing the lute.

His music is concise and clear, produces a hypnotic, almost instinctive emotional impact on the listener and is performed by the author with an ascetic focus, which is reflected in the names of individual works drawn from Catholicism. Long-lasting compositions and elegant melodies as if lead the listener to another, ideal world.

In February 2019, Jarmusch and Wissem released a joint album for the first time in seven years - "An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil". This vinyl album will be available at a concert in Kiev.

We invite you to experience the delicate magic of Joseph's music at a concert in the House of Architects.
