Biosphere, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Philip Jeck and Jana Winderen will be performing in the Lutherse Kerk, Den Haag, the Netherlands, as part of the TodaysArt 2009 festival this September.

The Lutherse Kerk will be one of the most exclusive locations of the festival. “Any performance here will be special; the acoustics of the Lutherse Kerk are outstanding and so is the ambience” say the festival organisers. “A very special church hall, inspiring artists and great acoustics; all the elements are in place to make the performances at this location legendary.”

Appearing at the Lutherse Kerk on Friday 25th are Jana Winderen and Philip Jeck. The 26th sees Hildur Guðnadóttir and Biosphere take to the stage, plus a performance of the “Eternal Chord”.

Due to the size of the Lutherse Kerk, it is advisable to show up in time to see your favorite artist.

In addition, on the afternoon of Saturday 26th Touch will be doing a Q&A in the Filmhuis. Led by Mike Harding, anybody who is interested will get the chance to talk with Touch, including the artists performing at TodaysArt 2009.

Touch Radio 44 | Laurent Jeanneau

17.09.09 - Ghulja – 44:20 - 192 kpbs

"Xinjiang ("new frontier" in Chinese) or Eastern Turkestan is without doubt the first extremely sensitive zone in China, at least in terms of ethnic conflict between the Hans newcomers and muslim minorities who have a longer history of occupation of those areas. Spread from Mongolia to Afghanistan, it is the biggest Chinese province. I was in the north western part of Xinjiang in the prefecture of ILI, called Yining outside of China and Ghulja by the Turkophones, in May and June 2009..."

The radio mix contains unedited acoustic recordings made with a pair of RODE NT5 microphones with a NAGRA ARES M digital recorder, and computer modified parts, sound collage and composed processed DONGBRA (Kazakh 2-stringed plucked instrument) and DUTAR (Uyghur long neck 2-stringed plucked instrument).
