Vinsent Planjer

'Warm to the Touch' is the new album by percussionist/percussionist/drummer/composer Vinsent Planjer on which he plays his compositions in duo and trio formations. His musical partners in this adventure are nothing less than the top of Dutch classical music and jazz. That has to be the case, because Planjer's compositions are challenging, sometimes on a technical level, but also in terms of musical choices. After all, there is no standard approach for the performance of music in the unusual combination of percussion and melody instrument.

Musical experience

In addition, Planjer has made it a point to require a bit of improvisation from every musical guest, which was quite outside the comfort zone for many in the beginning. The result is a collection of 8 very diverse pieces, in which Planjer's broad palette of sources of inspiration are expressed in a very original way.

Throughout his career as a performing musician to date, Vinsent Planjer has focused on conveying a multitude of moods and emotions, just about everything that music can evoke in a listener; from meditative to exuberant, aggressive to sweet, humorous to deadly serious, where confusion, relief, supreme concentration, introspection, expression and the occasional burst of laughter follow each other. The underlying idea is the belief that the (non-melodic) percussion can communicate the entire range of musical experiences.
