About the music: Westerpark is where I live. Mappa is how my 0-year-old son called both his parents for a while. 14PM was inspired by the American drummer & composer Paul Motian. Afiripoeki is an imaginary place, probably in Africa. Ziel 2 is a group improvistation. Far is a long, long way to run. Clemens van der Feen
