Micha Hamel is as a composer, conductor and poet, one of the most versatile artists in the Netherlands. He composes exclusively interdisciplinary and polystilistic works. Works that require an unconventional line-up, spacing and movement, acting and singing musicians and/or cross-overs with poetry, fine arts or architecture. As a conductor and artistic leader, Micha programmes and performes many cross-over concerts and events that are meant to push the borders of the concert-framework. His intellectual output includes the organizing of debates and lecturing about the current state and the future of classical and contemporary music as well as theoreticizing about interdisciplinarity. He published a book about the future of classical music as well as four collections of poetry that were praised for their vitality and originality.
