"... As unique as this soundtrack to the documentary "Wild Port of Europe" is, the instrumentation is equally unusual. For the Dutch musician Vloeimans has put together a trio of trumpet, cello and drums for this sonorous harbor tour."

About the album

As a sequel to the successful documentary 'De Nieuwe Wildernis' ('The New Wilderness'; 2013), Eric Vloeimans was invited to provide the soundtrack for Willem Berents's latest film: 'Wild Port of Europe'. It deals with the animals living in the port of Rotterdam. Vloeimans turned out to be eminently equipped to deal with small details, with all the attention given to the animals. He found the perfect partners in musical omnivores Jörg Brinkmann (cello) and Dirk-Peter Kölsch (drums) to help shape his musical ideas.

In 'Wild Port of Europe' the music supports the images, but it is allowed to excel by itself too: atmospheric harbor images and catchy melodies for the animals... in other words: a many-faceted music as we are wont in Vloeimans's musical universe. Think of nest of baby hedgehogs, a kestrel looking for prey, the trek of the natterjack toad, a polecat hunting a rabbit – this and much more will take you on a musical trip through the port of Rotterdam.

Voor het vervolg van de succesvolle documentaire De Nieuwe Wildernis (2013) werd Eric Vloeimans uitgenodigd de muziek te maken voor de nieuwe film van Willem Berents: Wild Port of Europe. Deze gaat over dieren die leven in de Rotterdamse haven. De opdracht om het in het kleine te zoeken, met alle aandacht gericht op de dieren, bleek Vloeimans op het lijf geschreven. In de alleskunners Jörg Brinkmann en Dirk-Peter Kölsch vond hij de perfecte kompanen om zijn muziek vorm te geven.

In Wild Port of Europe ondersteunt de muziek de beelden, maar die mag zelf daarnaast ook ten volle excelleren: sfeervolle havenbeelden en pakkende melodieën bij de dieren... muziek kortom met vele gezichten, zoals we die van Vloeimans kennen. Denk aan een nest baby-egeltjes, een torenvalk op zoek naar voedsel, de trek van de rugstreeppad, de bunzing op jacht naar een konijn – dit en veel meer neemt u mee op een muzikale reis naar de haven van Rotterdam.


Als Fortsetzung des erfolgreichen Dokumentarfilms "De Nieuwe Wildernis" ("Die neue Wildnis"; 2013) wurde Eric Vloeimans eingeladen, den Soundtrack für Willem Berents' neuesten Film zu liefern: "Wild Port of Europe". Darin geht es um die Tiere, die im Hafen von Rotterdam leben. Es stellte sich heraus, dass Vloeimans hervorragend in der Lage war, mit kleinen Details umzugehen und den Tieren viel Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken. In den musikalischen Allroundern Jörg Brinkmann (Cello) und Dirk-Peter Kölsch (Schlagzeug) fand er die perfekten Partner, um seine musikalischen Ideen umzusetzen.

In 'Wild Port of Europe' unterstützt die Musik die Bilder, darf sich aber auch selbst auszeichnen: stimmungsvolle Hafenbilder und eingängige Melodien für die Tiere... mit anderen Worten: eine facettenreiche Musik, wie wir sie in Vloeimans' musikalischem Universum gewohnt sind. Denken Sie an ein Nest mit Igelbabys, einen Turmfalken auf der Suche nach Beute, die Wanderung der Kreuzkröte, einen Iltis auf der Jagd nach einem Kaninchen - dies und vieles mehr nimmt Sie mit auf eine musikalische Reise durch den Hafen von Rotterdam.

Eric Vloeimans (trumpet)

Eric Vloeimans (Huizen, 1963) is an improvising trumpeter and composer who regards the term ‘jazz’ as too limiting to describe his music. His work is characterized by melodic and lyrical power, and a distinctive, individual sound that is called velvety or whispering in the more subdued pieces. From 2006/2007 Eric Vloeimans has been active with two much-praised formations: the chamber jazz trio Fugimundi (Anton Goudsmit guitar, Harmen Fraanje piano) and the electric band Gatecrash, in which rock and funk elements can be traced (Jeroen van Vliet keyboards, Gulli Gudmundsson bass, Jasper van Hulten drums). With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time. In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band...

With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time.
In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band Oliver’s Cinema with accordion player Tuur Florizoone and cellist Jörg Brinkmann (CD available from August 2013, and a US tour in October 2014)) , and a duo with pianist Florian Weber, with a CD release : Live at the Concertgebouw in 2011.
His broad range of interests has led Vloeimans to collaborate with artists from other musical worlds. In the pop music area, these include Fay Lovsky, Doe Maar, Spinvis, Jan Akkerman and trumpeter Kyteman (Colin Benders). Where world music is concerned, Vloeimans was involved in projects with flamenco guitarist Eric Vaarzon Morel, Latin pianist Ramon Valle, and the fado-inspired Pessoa of Fernando Lameirinhas.
Vloeimans has performed as a soloist with classical ensembles such as the Matangi Quartet, the Calefax Reed Quintet, the Metropole Orchestra, the Gelderland Orchestra, the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, the Holland Baroque Society, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
2011 saw the premiere of his first trumpet concerto, Evensong, with the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, orchestrated by Martin Fondse, and recorded for CD with the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.

Jörg Brinkmann (cello)

Young, classically trained string players with big, wide open ears have greatly enriched Dutch improvised music in the past years. One of them is the German cellist Jörg Brinkmann (1976), who has studied at the Arnhem conservatory. Just like the members of the ZAPP! string quartet, whom he frequently plays with, he get his inspiration from anywhere; for him the ‘jazz’ label is also too limiting. Brinkmann is equally capable of making essential contributions to pop bands, theatre orchestras or chamber music ensembles. Building on the technical innovations of improvising jazz musicians, he can deploy his cello as a (rhythm) guitar, or as a bass that lays down funk accents or swings in four-four time. When he colors the sound...

Building on the technical innovations of improvising jazz musicians, he can deploy his cello as a (rhythm) guitar, or as a bass that lays down funk accents or swings in four-four time. When he colors the sound of his instrument with electronics, it’s done in a subtle and tasteful way. In his playing and his compositions a perfect fusion takes place of structure and personal variations, of cleanly bowed lyricism and lively rhythms, in which he doesn’t shy away from unusual time signatures either.
His musical character is faithfully expressed in his own trio with pianist Oliver Maas and percussionist Dirk-Peter Kölsch, with whom he recorded the album Ha! for ACT. In addition, he’s worked with Martin Fondse’s Starvinsky Orkestar, Michiel Braam’s Bik Bent Braam and many other adventurous jazz soloists.

WDR CD of the week, 09-1-2023

“Of course I knew more or less what the film was about. The makers had a restriction: it had to be full of guitars and winds. But when they heard my demo, they were immediately hooked. We looked for small things and the music was allowed to be autonomous. Film music is often servile, but now I was allowed to do my thing. That was a huge honor, I hope I will be asked to create more.” - Eric Vloeimans
Jazzism, 12-10-2023

Fresh, recognizable melodies, themes, songs without words that immediately appeal to the imagination.
Music Frames, 19-1-2023

...the music tastes great without the accompanying images, you can let your imagination run wild.
