Ann Eysermans [Antwerp, 1980] studied at the Brussels Conservatory, where she obtained the Master's degrees in Music Writing [harmony, counterpoint, fugue and composition] in 2004 and Jazz [double bass] in 2007. She plays double bass and harp [improvisation, experimental compositions, and her own work] in various groups such as FENNA, Fnussjen, and DUO. At ChampdAction [production house for new music, multidisciplinary music projects and sound art] she has been a musician and performer in various multimedia productions since 2007. Since 2010 she has been an 'artist in residence' at ChampdAction. From 2010 to 2014 she worked on an intermedial PhD research [FWO, VUB, KCB, ChampdAction]: "P - TRAINS [Astrin Phosphora]". On November 27, 2014, this research ended with the title' Doctorate in Arts' [with congratulations from the jury], obtained at the Free University of Brussels. Many graphic scores from this audiovisual project are performed by different musicians and ensembles, both national and international.
Her immense fascination for trains is still reflected today in new tape compositions with train sounds, train poems, images and videos in which moving motorcars and old diesel locomotives appear for various projects. In Christmas Special, a collection of sound stories that evolve and transform over time, one discovers departing and stopping trains as a preliminary announcement or as a sound object that develops over soft chorales and abstract text fragments.
Ann is currently working at MATRIX [Center for New Music] as the artistic director of the educational department. Besides these artistic activities she continues her studies in Philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
