In 1941 American composers John Cage and Lou Harrison wrote together "Double Music". Fourteen composers, including Louis Andriessen took the same challenge and created seven pieces for one to twenty percussionists. The result was Double Music concert that took place last week at Muziekgebouw at Iij in Amsterdam. The concert included video interviews in which composers explain what Cage meant to them, among the others. Louis Andriessen and Martijn Padding's contribution to this initiative performed by Slagwerk Den Haag is "Gesprek" (Conversation).
