Hello all, I am excited to present you a new album full of collaborations. 19 March 2021 'Electric Encounters - Connecting Colors Vol. 2' sees the light. In contrast to the acoustic Connecting Colors Vol 1 we go a bit more extreme here: Jazz, Metal, Ambient, Soundscapes, Acoustic meets Electronic.
For the past two years I have been painting and drawing a lot and sold a lot to raise money to help refugees. Now in Corona times, I started selling them for myself too. Here are 4 paintings, but there is a lot more! Please feel free to contact me if this interests you.
I am very happy to present Connecting Colors Vol. 1 - Acoustic Encounters! Eleven collaborations with musical friends, made in these Covid times. Eleven connecting drawings/paintings.
In the last weeks I added new video's to this site.
After our BIMhuis gig in November we decided to do a video recording the week after at the Concervatory of Arnhem. Great video-work by Dennis which captured our 'What you see is what you get' mentality. We are very happy with it.
Oene and Philipp Rüttgers present their duo album 'Changing Landscapes' released with High End recording label Just Listen on Native DSD Music.
Binnenkort speel ik een tweetal duoconcerten met de Canadese jazzpianist/componist David Braid. Daar ben ik heel blij mee dus ik breng het graag bij jullie onder de aandacht. Wees welkom!
In this new Scottish/ Dutch group Mark and Oene join two musicians with whom Oene has been playing for several years already.
New music by me will be performed on 4 November and 10 November at the November Music Festival.
While I was on a summer holiday with my family in England, I decided to pick up an old hobby again: drawing.
The Oriental Landscapes Festival gave me a Carte Blanche evening + a commission to write a new composition! I invited 5 wonderful friends / musicians I admire to join me. The composition is called 'Ode to Istanbul', and it is inspired by the many faces of this dazzling city.
Their debut album, Shapes of Time, will be released on March 19, 2018, and features special collaborations with visual artist Udo Prinsen and guitarist Raphael Vanoli.
Hello all, it has been a while since I updated my news.
Since 20 years I play with bass guitarist Mark Haanstra in several bands and it is always a true pleasure to share the stage with him!
I will be active in two concerts at the Amsterdam Cello Biennale 2016. 22 Oct Hello - Cello Orchestra, 25 Oct - Zapp4 + Jerome Pernoo
An update of the Sudoku reviews (October 2016)
Last June we recorded three days with engineer Chris Weeda and now we just finished the mixing.
In season 2016-2017 I will be working on two new productions for the Dutch National Opera (composing and playing).
In the past months I have been working hard on a cello double concerto for two inspiring cellists and friends Nick Shugaev and Willem Stam.
It is such a pleasure to introduce my first solo album to all of you: Sudoku. In 2015 I have had several recording sessions in the Warning Studio's, with the wonderful engineer Björn Warning.
