Batik is the brainchild of ECM recording artist Wolfert Brederode and Joost Lijbaart. With guitarist Ed Verhoeff and bass guitarist Mark Haanstra (two of the most in demand musicians on the European scene) they formed a quartet capable of visual and inventive music making. This is Ed Verhoeff’s 7th album at NativeDSD Music.
Like the famous fabric from the Far East the music of Batik consists of multicolored lines creating fascinating patterns, blending traditional forms with new ideas and letting spontaneous interaction merge the elements into a very original sound.
With the suite The Old Man And The Sea, Batik presents a piece of music that vividly brings to life Ernest Hemingway’s classic tale of the old fisherman. Batik has composed and improvised a dramatic story-telling soundscape around the key elements of the novel. You can read the novella on line here, it is a unique experience reading the book and hearing the gorgeous Batik compositions at the same time.
