Episode 46: Myrthe van de Weetering

In this episode Pat welcomes violinist and composer Myrthe van de Weetering to the show. She discusses her decision not to play on most of her debut album, featuring herself as a composer rather than a performer, the series of film noir style photography that inspired the music and how limiting herself to writing short pieces was liberating.

Please visit Myrthe’s website for more information, tour dates and to purchase her music.

Myrthe recommended searching for pairings of music and books as a sort of “soundtrack to reading”.
