Willem Breuker Prize 2022

Honored to have won the Willem Breuker Prize. The prize is awarded every two years to a musician whose work is characterised by ‘freedom, hearty audacity, and a completely open mind.’

From the jury report : “…She is an authentic appearance in the instrumental domain in which she has an exemplary function when it comes to using the instrument as a means and not as an end.”

This year the Breuker foundation will award to prizes, due to last year’s cancelled event. Super big congrats also to duo Ornstein/Fentross !

Concert and party at the BIMHUIS November 4th.

The Quietus

The Quietus featured Chimp as album of the week.

Really touched by the wonderful write up. Read it here

“…Chimp is a grand debut of experimental classical music. While many instrumentalists are satisfied with playing immaculately ever faster, it is the exploration and acceptance of imperfection (whatever that means) that distinguishes the artist from the musician. That and a never-ending curiosity and thirst to learn and expand one’s own skills and repertoire. I hear all of that in Diamanda La Berge Dramm’s Chimp, a pursuit of true artistry.”
