The Flemish-Dutch Andrea Voets is the world’s only musical journalist. As the artistic director of Resonate Productions, she combines in-depth, social journalism with tailor-made music, turning it into podcasts & documentary-concerts. Working from De Balie in Amsterdam (‘the Dutch house for debate’), she made the documentary concerts Wings & Roots (2018) and While We Live (2020). Newspaper NRC listed this show as best of classical music in 2020, calling it a ‘fascinating new genre’. 2024 brings FOR REAL: a theatrical radio show about human dignity, based on interviews with 20 women about intellectual undermining. November Music, during the Art Route, features Millennial History. Andrea and composer Luke Deane transformed the podcast of the same name, in which music and interviews were interwoven in hundreds of layers, into a live performance, in collaboration with recorder player Sarah Jeffery. Andrea studied harp and philosophy in Amsterdam and Berlin. In 2022 she received the FastForward grant from Dutch Performing Arts Fund NL.

The interview will be conducted by Co de Kloet (presenter, producer, Concertzender, NL).
Co (1959) is a musician, composer, producer, and radio personality who works for Dutch radio station Concertzender and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Known in the trade as the “Creative Catalyst,” he also runs his own media company, called Zivasound. He lives with his wife and two children in Kortenhoef, a tiny village in Holland that a famous painter once described as the center of the world.
