In November 2008 I took part in a competition set up by the Utrecht Composers Collective (UCC). In December 2008 my piece was a part of each of four performances called ‘De Regelmeesters’, that consisted of four pieces for piano, bass clarinet, cello and live electronics. Serving as an interlude, there were also three pieces for tape, one of which was mine. My piece is based on sounds created with a cello in an anechoic chamber. The eight channel piece is called ‘Bedoelde u: Tegelmeesters’.
Right after the first four performances, I made a new mix, based on my experience during Regelmeesters. I also changed the name to ‘Tilemaster’. This piece was accepted for the SMC and ICMC conferences in 2009, in Porto and Montreal respectively.
