Wiel Conen

Wiel Conen of Waywords and MeansignsDutch composer Wiel Conen began his career studying music at Julliard Conservatory, and studying composition with Paul Levi in New York. He then studied at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam. His teacher Misha Mengelberg described Wiel as having “Bruckner’s temperament: rather unworldly, extremely friendly and far from stupid. In his attic room he has a computer and a sampler, and he uses them to produce pieces, each of which is equally delightful. It is the nicest stuff I have come across recently.”

Wiel Conen collaborated with Charlotte Gilissen for the Opendoor Edition of Waywords and Meansigns in 2017, recording page 48 through page 50 line 35.
