Fan of Reiziger
Roland Kuit: "I have always
been a huge fan of 'Reiziger
in muziek' (traveller in music).
This TV programme stood for experiments and modernization. It was presented by the inimitable Han Reiziger. The national stations are pushed
into a moderate straitjacket
by the politics. That is why I
am delighted that the Concert-
zender offers me the space for this experiment. Renewal can only come about by independent research."
Roland Kuit reports his research and compositions from Elektronmusik Studion Stockholm. He has interviewed Mats Lindström and has made reports about the technical department studio's and the active composers at EMS.
