Frerick den Haan is a classically trained pianist from The Hague. His solo work is characterized by exploring the the grand piano and its gradual melancholica, capturing the quiet places he finds in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. He works from his bedroom studio, where he puts two microphones next to his piano and just hits the ''record'' button.
These nightly recordings close to the seaside bring his impressions down to the pure essence: sound. Concentration. Meditation. Everything you need in life. The resonance found in small, quiet places explores the grandeur found in quietude.
Next to his own music, Frerick has collaborated on solo piano music with Marcus Hikren, scored an animated movie with illustrator Sarah Pannekoek, created music for NFT's with generative designer Beer van Geer and frequently plays with the renowed and acclaimed Dutch band Handsome Poets.
