On Saturday 28 August Disquiet was officially launched at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ as part of the Toonzetters Festival. The event saw the presentation of the label’s first two compact discs. These releases include Spaces of Blank, Imprint, Mask and the Here Trilogy. In addition, ASKO|Schönberg performed Mask, Here [in circles] and gave the Dutch première of Rekindle.
On a rainy morning in July, mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn, wearing a white dress and her face painted silver, lowers herself into the icy waters of Amsterdam’s IJmeer. That same afternoon soprano Claron McFadden finds herself surrounded by sandy hills. She moves away from a golden mirror, freeing herself from a tangle of branches.
