strijbos & van rijswijk

For more than ten years, Jeroen Strijbos (l) and Rob van Rijswijk (r) have formed the composer duo: Strijbos & Van Rijswijk. They have created an oeuvre at many locations worldwide that includes landscape operas, so-called ‘walkscapes’ and live music performances in a more ‘classical’ setting.

Jeroen Strijbos (l) en Rob van Rijswijk (r) vormen al meer dan tien jaar samen het componisten- en geluidskunstenaars-duo: Strijbos & Van Rijswijk. Zij creëerden op vele plekken wereldwijd een oeuvre dat landschapsopera’s omvat, zogenaamde ‘walkscapes’ en live muziek performances in een meer klassieke setting.
