Lyckle de Jong

Hague-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Lyckle de Jong was studying at the Amsterdam Conservatory of Music when he started to accumulate cheap vintage keyboards and drum machines. He'd studied the piano since he was a child, but found himself inspired by the unique sound of instruments like the Roland E30 and the ARP Odyssey. De Jong channeled this passion into his debut "Bij Annie op bezoek", a faded, lo-fi concept album spun around the story of Annie, a lonely 80-something woman who recounted colorful memories of her life in the 1960s. At Rewire this year, de Jong will perform an exclusive interpretation of the album, alongside regular collaborator and close friend of Annie, Gijsje Heemskerk, and clarinet player Kim David Bots.
