Ben Bertrand at Rewire festival

This year Rewire will break with it’s traditional format of presenting adventurous music in a wide range of venues and sites in The Hague early April. Instead, we will be presenting a fully online programme on 6 – 9 May 2021 including several commissioned works, remote collaborations and premieres. In addition, Rewire 2021 will feature a number of offline activities scheduled for Autumn, to be announced at a later stage.

Fifteen Questions Interview with Ben Bertrand

When did you start writing/producing music - and what or who were your early passions and influences? What what is about music and/or sound that drew you to it?

During my childhood, music was omnipresent at home. I learned to play the violin and the clarinet from an early age and I started going to concerts with my parents when I was very young.  All of this made me curious and made me want to invent music: I have always considered the world of sounds as a space of freedom.
