Wim Henderickx

Wim Henderickx (°1962) lectures in composition at the Conservatoires in Antwerp and Amsterdam and heads the annual SoundMine short course on composition for youngsters at Musica in Neerpelt. He composes chamber music, orchestral works and operas and has won prizes for his work both at home and abroad. Since 1996 he has been a resident composer at Muziektheater Transparant, for which he most recently composed The Queen with no land. In 2013 he also became an artist-in-residence at deFilharmonie. From 2004 to 2010 he worked on the extremely varied seven-parted Tantric Cycle , taking Eastern philosophy as his source of inspiration. His Canzone for voice and piano was the obligatory work for the semi-finals of the 2008 Queen Elizabeth Contest in Brussels. He wrote his Symphony No. 1 on commission to the National Orchestra of Belgium in 2011 and it was premiered by various orchestras in Belgium and abroad. His Antifoon (2014), a huge open-air project with 500 musicians, drew the international press to the Tuikabelbrug, between Hasselt and Genk.
