Dutch minimalist composer and lute player based in Brooklyn, JOZEF VAN WISSEM  won in 2013 the Cannes Soundtrack Award for the score of Only Lovers Left Alive at the Cannes Film Festival.

An incessantly touring musician, Van Wissem studied lute in New York with Patrick O’Brien. He was commissioned by London’s National Gallery to compose a sound piece to Hans Holbein´s painting “The Ambassadors”.

Concerning the Entrance into Eternity, his first collaborative album with JIM JARMUSCH, was released on Important Records in early 2012.

This evening Jozef will lecture and improvise on different aspects of his approach to music, life and fiction.
