Morris Kliphuis (1986) studied jazz horn at the Conservatory of Amsterdam after preparatory training in classic composition at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. For his master's degree, he researched the possibilities for applying the composition techniques of Stravinsky and Janaek in jazz. He has played in varied lineups both in The Netherlands and abroad and has worked as a composer. Kliphuis has won many awards, among which an Edison with his band Kapok in 2014.
This new composition ‘Dimlicht’ will be performed with a newly-formed sextet from varied backgrounds, from synth pop to free jazz and classical.
