The music of Daan Janssens - a composer who has his roots in Bruges - is predominantly soft and seems to be constantly balancing between still passages and short, indefinable outbursts. It is minimal, but not repetitive. Timbre and dynamics – which Janssens handles with the greatest sense of detail and nuance – are central. As a result, his compositions are rich in stimulating textures, surprising timbre combinations and a sumptuous acoustic palette. French music - from Debussy to Boulez – and West-European modernism are never far away.
