Dr John Croft wins Prix Ton Bruynèl 2012
The Prix Ton Bruynèl is the most important prize for electroacoustic music in The Netherlands. The jury of the Prix describes the piece as 'a perfect integration of instrumental properties and electronics' and 'a fragile equilibrium in which tension and virtuosic quality is felt during the entire composition'.
John focuses his work on extending the relationship between performer and instrument by using live electronics. Intermedio III was written for MVG (Marij van Gorkom) and is part of her program SS:NNd (Sonic Spaces: New Netherlands).
