– Good news! I got an assignment to compose the music for a Dutch short animation movie. Together with Bram Meindersma from Audiobrand I will be working on the score for “Varken”. The movie is about 6 minutes long, directed by Jorn Leeuwerink and supported by the Dutch Film Fund and Pupil Productions.
– I have applied for a writer’s subsidy at the Dutch Performing Arts Fund. By the beginning of juli I will hear whether I get a 3 month writer’s fee.
– The release this februari of the 15th Amsterdam Klezmer Band album “Fortuna” marks another milestone in my composing career as 3 new Job Chajes compositions are published.
– In the summer of 2019 I made 5 compositions for the houseroom “Verhalenfestival Jordaan” in Amsterdam. The Lyrics about overheated Amsterdam in touristic tension and crave for building new appartments were written by my dear partner Claartje Chajes. The songs were performed by Rebecca Lobry on vocals and HenkJan Van Minnen on accordion. A cd was recorded and is now available.
