Music for Empty Spaces

Zone Blanche

Zone blanche is french for ‘white zone’, an area with no mobile phone reception. in recent months it felt as if the whole world had entered a zone blanche. Isolated from each other, most of us just lived and worked on. Zone Blanche is music with only one bar of signal strength, to be heard softly between the noise of everyday life.

Zone Blanche was written for and first performed by Vincent van Amsterdam, for the Empty Spaces concert in Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ, Amsterdam, May 28th 2020
