Doriene has played as a soloist as well as with many ensembles, orchestras and musical theater companies over the past 20 years. The experience with these diverse performance practices inspired her to develop her own production in which different influences and disciplines come together.
In 2020 Doriene created a new audiovisual sound performance based on contemporary repertoire for solo harp with composers such as Takemitsu, Berio, Yun, Cage and Van Rossum. No average repertoire for the harp, but compositions in which, among other things, with extensive techniques, the extremes of the instrument are explored.
As an extension of this quest for expressive possibilities, she enriches the familiar sound of the harp with special analog effects and creates a whole new sound world. The spectator is not only taken along musically, but also visually: Especially for this performance, Doriene worked together with Tango Soundsystem (TU Delft) on the development of an interactive light installation.
This extensive, modular installation embraces the harp in the middle, as it were, and responds to the frequencies of the harp. As a result, the music can not only be heard, but also seen. That interplay of harp, light and technology is in a landscape.
