Tijn Wybenga (1993) made the transition from jazz pianist and arranger to composer, conductor and artistic director. After graduating he shook off his good side and now he writes intense musical, touching notes, rich and ripe, highly personal and specific. His craftsmanship is indisputable, as he proved with his multidisciplinary performance Prikkel at Oerol 2018.
As a specialist at the intersection of modern classical, jazz and electronics, and AM.OK’s bandleader Tijn brings together 14 musicians, who play a typical Amsterdam sound together. They are working on their first album which will be released in the spring of 2020. On 29 April there will be a first presentation of the 14-piece AM.OK (Amsterdams Modern Orkest) led by Tijn Wybenga, maker of BIMHUIS Production house.
