Marike van Dijk with large ensemble

Dutch saxophonist and composer Marike van Dijk has been calling Brisbane home since her move in September 2019. Being based in New York for several years led to collaborations with artists from different disciplines and genres, one of which is her large chamber jazz ensemble 'The Stereography Project' (BJUR 2015). This 12-piece band was featured on her last album alongside two guests, singer-songwriters Jeff Taylor (USA) and Katell Keineg (UK).

Commissioned by the North Sea Jazz festival, Marike wrote Stranded, music for nonet with two drummers, which was premiered at the North Sea Jazz festival 2022 and recorded for release at the Bimhuis (Amsterdam). Her cinematic style of composing mixes influences from jazz, classical and indie rock music.

On Friday, September 23, together with the students from the Jazz and Classical Music departments, Marike van Dijk will present the music from her latest record 'The Stereography Project'.
