franknuyts composer






These days , music has become yet again more ephemeral.

Like never before, music is currently recorded, streamed and distributed torrentially, but often leaves a scant trace, gotten lost in a digital world not really concerned about its past.

Frank Nuyts acknowledges this – accepts this – but also feels the necessity to counter somewhat this trend by writing down music on more time resisting carriers, (beautifully crafted scores), while playing it too in specifically established bands (Beat Love Oracle and Hardscore), hoping so that a coming generation might discover an artistic attitude which cleverly embraces past and future in an inviting and meaningful way.

In short: Frank Nuyts, not unlike Frank Zappa and Strawinsky in the former century, aims to be a composer who creates challenging music to play AND to play with.
