Henosis was created after multi-talented Bram Stadhouders won the Composition Assignment from the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2012. Stadhouders wrote his work for a special combination: eight members of one of the most admired choirs in the classical world, the Netherlands Chamber Choir, and his own trio: guitar, drums and electronics. The outcome is a cross-over between jazz and modern electronica.

One might think that classically trained musicians and jazz improvisers are two different categories that are not easy to blend. Stadhouders proves that this is a wrong conception. Henosis means "unity" in Ancient Greek, and this is exactly what Bram had in mind: putting the best of two different worlds into one intense organic experience of both bombastic and very intimate atmospheres. Contrasts in rhythm, emotion and compositional techniques make this piece grab your attention from beginning to end, and a perfect synergy is created between conductor, classical vocalists, and improvisers.
