High time again for a Space Impro with pumpin’ rhythms, catchy themes, wild improvisations and interactions! We invited top musicians from the vibrant international & Amsterdam scene to make it a dazzling evening!


Annelie Koning is a vocalist and composer. She performs the composition “Toch Nog Gelukkig”.

Singer Annelie Koning asks herself who she is, what she can become and what she thinks of that. She starts a conversation with the voices in her head about identity, memory and expectations.

The compositions consist of two arias and in between a recitative. These operatic terms are used in an experimental and conceptual way. The arias are used to bring across emotions of the voice. The performer feels in the beginning ‘too big for everything, too small for nothing’, and in the recitative she tells why and what that does to her. This performance is 20 minutes. “Toch nog gelukkig” is the result of Phonetic Stories, an Open Call of Asko Schönberg and De Tekstsmederij.

The composition is for 4 surround speakers and live vocals. Gerjan Piksen – composition | Annelie Koning – performance | Jeroen Callaars – text.



Pumpin’ rhythms, catchy themes, wild improvisations and interlocking interactions form the base of this great trio with two generations of creative musicians.

Luc Ex – acoustic bass | Jan Klare – saxophones | Onno Govaert – drums
