Wiek Hijmanselectric guitar
Wiek Hijmans (Netherlands, 1967) has played the electric guitar since the age of eleven. His interest in both contemporary classical as well as in popular music gave him a task for life: integrating the electric guitar in the classical tradition, thus adding a new world of sounds to that tradition. Influences from jazz, rock and an attitude stemming from extensive experience as an improviser make Hijmans both as a performer and as a composer a typical exponent from the current state of music. Wiek Hijmans´ first solo cd drew attention in the Dutch media: a TV appearance with Louis Andriessen, three major newspapers publishing interviews and/or reviews of the cd.
