This livestream is curated by Cid Rim, who is part of our Artist Residency Program! Cid Rim on Niels Broos: “He is currently one of the most talented piano and Synthesizer virtuosos I know. He has the ability to breath life and soul into otherwise sometimes static and robotic sounding electronic instruments, making them sound playful and joyous.”
“We are very thankful to the GÂRDEN crew for the great recording we had with them. It is not everyday you get to work with such a skilled team and set. It really brought out something new in our music.”
