This is Robin Scherpen, a Dutch guitarist with a truly remarkable program.
Due to an eye condition, he was no longer able to read sheet music. Following a daring yet successful eye operation, he was forced to spend a long time in a dark room. There he began composing, purely by intuition. It resulted in an album “For The Unseen” and a series of concerts, one of which will take place on December 16 at Het Concertgebouw.
“Music is a language. It doesn’t necessarily need to be understood to be effective… A score is nothing more than a tool to make music visible.” – Robin Scherpen
