Marieke Franssen

Marieke Franssen studied flute at the Conservatory of Amsterdam with Harrie Starreveld and at the International Ensemble Modern Academy in Frankfurt.
Marieke’s main focus is the contemporary repertoire, improvisation and the use of electronics. She regularly collaborates with composers, taking both their and her own ideas on flute playing to another level. She is interested in new ideas of presenting music to the audience and creating different ways of experiencing a concert. As member of the collective Frisse Oren she is involved in developing music theatre for children.
With her foundation Stichting KNARS she (co)creates contemporary music (theatre) projects for museums and galleries. Marieke is a regular member of Doelen Ensemble (Rotterdam), Frisse Oren and Duo Leeghwater. As a guest, she regularly plays with Ensemble Modern (Frankfurt), Ensemble Modern Orchestra (Frankfurt), Asko|Schönberg (Amsterdam), Insomnio (Utrecht) and Ensemble Interface (Frankfurt).
