Remy van Kesteren
Hailed by the New York Times as a "brilliant harpist", when Remy van Kesteren plays his instrument, it sounds like you have never heard it before. Transitioning from classical concert halls to clubs and pop festivals, Remy seeks to redefine the boundaries of his instrument. His unique 49-string Salvi Réus harp is a testament to his innovative approach, and with collaborations spanning from the dancefloor to film, including work with Oscar®-winning director Michael Dudok De Wit and musician Fink. As the Dutch Harp Festival's artistic director, he continues exploring new terrains, both musically and collaboratively.
The Best of Both Worlds
Remy van Kesteren’s remarkable career straddling the divide between electronic and acoustic culminates in this very special session at the Dolby Atmos x Mercedes-Benz Hangout. During The Best of Both Worlds, Van Kesteren will kick off with a recital on harp of one of his latest pieces called Nowhere. After that, he will show the audience how he has used Dolby Atmos to bring the composition to life. A fascinating insight into the mechanics behind the creation of Van Kesteren’s otherworldly sound.
