Together with Iris van der Ende, Yvonne Freckmann attended Kunstsymposium Oogsten in Margraten, South Limburg (near Maastricht) in April. It was a fantastic chance to focus and complete De stem van de molen (The voice of the windmill) performance with the Van Tienhovenmolen windmill. Special thanks to Kees Barten, the miller who rehearsed with us the entire week, and also miller Huub Willems. In May we also performed with miller Hans Lippens at the Vrouw Vennemolen for National Windmill Day.
Yvonne had the fantastic opportunity to experience the “Sonic Mmabolela” Field Recording Workshop in South Africa in November 2016. This workshop with sound artist Francisco López and Barbara Ellison is a two-week course in listening to the wild in the spectacular Mmabolela reserve. Yvonne was awarded a €1,000 scholarship from the “Fund for Excellence of the Royal Conservatory The Hague” to support her attendance.

Yvonne originally came to The Hague on a 2014-2015 Fulbright Full Grant for the Netherlands to study multimedia composition at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague with Yannis Kyriakides and Peter Adriaansz. She hit the ground running, presenting pieces in conservatory concerts, and working on new projects. Current interests include transcription and integration of field recordings into her concert music, graphic scores, sound walks, and further collaborations inspired by her colleagues.
Success! Zvov Sensory Tour of the Netherlands Funded
Crowdfunding success! Through the Voordekunst platform we raised over €6,000 for “Zvov Sensory” Tour of the Netherlands. Thanks to over 100 donors and two foundations we managed to gather the starter money we need. Since then, Zvov Sensory has been giving performances in the Netherlands, Belgium, Israel and upcoming in Aarhus, Denmark.
“A surprisingly, intimate and confronting experience, being blindfolded and therefore completely focused on the senses of hearing, feeling and smelling”. – Cornelis de Bondt; Composition teacher, The Royal Conservatory, The Hague
