Crowdfunding update!

July 29th, 2015

The crowdfunding of our album is doing pretty well, we’ve reached 52% of our target amount! A big shout-out to everyone that contributed to this! Here’s a little thank-you video (in Dutch), please enjoy our clumsiness caused by the fact that it feels kinda weird to talk to you phone πŸ˜‰


Few days off at Ameland

July 14th, 2015

We just arrived home after a few days off at the lovely Ameland, the island where Tonny was born and where his parents still live. Looking back, it was a good idea to take our minds off the music and go swimming, sailing, biking through the dunes and simply have fun, because now that we’re back, we feel more than ever prepared and inspired to finish our album. It was great to see that people have shared our crowdfunding link, thank you guys! But.. we’re not there yet, we’ve got 41 days and 91% of the target amount left, so please see for yourself if you’d like to share or donate so we can feel just as strong as Tonny is on this picture πŸ˜‰

Crowdfunding album

July 9th, 2015

Good news: We just set up our crowd funding account at Voordekunst! What’s Voordekunst? Voordekunst is an amazingly cool Dutch crowdfunding platform that supports artists with an interesting idea. In our case, that idea is our album: “Snapshots of Eternity” that we’ ve been telling you about for quite a while now πŸ˜‰ It will be released in October. What’s special about it is the fact that it won’t be ‘just’ another album; it’s going to be a book that you can hang on your wall like some sort of a painting or calendar (or whatever you name it). To answer the questions on why we want to make such kind of an album, it may be good to have a little background information on us individually:

“I my work, I gather the most precious pieces of time and glue them together in images, words and music. NNENN is so inspiring to me, because my poems, pictures, piano and voice can all be integrated. Both Tonny and I were raised in a family where culture is important, that’s one of the things we recognized in each other. The fact that Tonny is both producer and sounddesigner makes our possibilities endless. In our process, the correlation between sound and music plays a big part. For example, we create soundscapes for my poems and put our music underneath nature documentaries to see how the images influence the sound. Also, we’re constantly brainstorming about possible stop-motion movies in which the notes/beats are portrayed as abstract forms.
We usually communicate through pictures what the music should sound like.”

“When it comes to music, I’ve always been fascinated by sounds that not yet exist. I create them by recording sounds that do exist and connecting them with electronics. For Johanneke, it’s always a challenge to react on my sounds with melodies, words, images and singing. Both my father and sister are artists and when I was a child, I used to choose my books on the illustrations instead of the stories. I think it’s very cool that everything seems to find its place inΒ  NNENN. The slightly surreal effect of Johanneke’s pictures for example, fit the atmosphere of our music perfectly.”

We’d love to give you a full impression of our shared vision; we don’t want you to just hear it, we also want you to read and see it. There’s a reason why you pronounce NNENN as “and, and, and, and” in Dutch. So please support us and help us to build our dream, we’re offering you the fruit of our hearts and minds in return πŸ™‚
