Pianist Martin Oei will soon be organizing Green Notes again: an inspiring program with music, a lecture on integral sustainable building and a visit to the example project Circular Upcycling in Amsterdam Southeast. This example project was extensively described in detail in a publication of the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Netherlands: All inclusive building and development. This brochure indicates for each party in a construction or development process what the possibilities for truly sustainable construction. It is not only about sustainable energy, energy conservation and material use, but also daylight but also daylight, bio-based building materials, comfort and biodiversity.
Very special in this example project is the use of bell pepper stems as insulation material in the hollow building elements: 80% of the volume of building material consists of this residual flow from horticulture. A special ventilation system ensures clean air in each room and removes 90% of the heat from the exhaust air. And how do you keep it all affordable? That is possible by providing design principles and intelligent design and integrally addressing all environmental issues.
The musical program includes all four of Chopin’s ballads, which Martin will perform on instruments more than 100 years old: a 1910 Bösendorfer and a 1909 Erard with parallel strings.
Chopin created a new abstract musical form with the ballads; he inspired Liszt and Brahms to compose their own ballads. Chopin’s ballads are full of romantic and dance elements and are among the highlights of romantic piano music.
The Green Nores program takes place on Sunday, September 17 and Sunday, September 24 in Huntum, Amsterdam Zuidoost. Green Notes can further be booked for groups (max. 20 people) by appointment. Ticket price €30 per seat. Please pay cash on entry.
You can book your tickets here.
The program Green Notes is interesting for:
anyone who wants to make their own home more sustainable
