Listening music as medicine against the Dutch Disease

Musicians Fridolijn, Ruud Houweling and Sophie Janna will perform Thursday evening, April 11, as part of Quite Quiet. This concert series has existed for more than 10 years and is co-organized by TU Delft-alumni.

Quite Quiet seems to be a cure for the Dutch disease [talking during concerts, ed]: the audience is invited to listen quietly and with full attention during the performances. ‘This allows you to really enjoy the music and musicians have the space to give their all,’ a press release reads.

Ruud Houweling is a singer-songwriter who, among other things, created music for the Dutch historical documentary series De Strijd om het Binnenhof. The music of singer-songwriter Fridolijn consists of ‘soft layers of swirling synthesizers, acoustic folk guitars, ambient electronics and distant drums,’ according to her website. Folk musician Sophie Janna was influenced by traditional Scottish folk and is known for her warm, sensitive songs.
