The Electra ensemble peforms the music of contemporary composers.

"Able To Be" presents works from Louis Andriessen, Ron Ford, and from Corrie van Binsbergen !

Corrie van Binsbergen's piece is entitled 'The Fifth Element', and has text fragments in the Kobaian language. (get you Magma t-shirts out !!)

The album got released in 2008 (and somehow escaped my radar...).
The second disc on "Able To Be" is a DVD.

Here's the introduction: 'Meet Electra'.
ELECTRA behind the scenes...a mini-documentary by Pjotr 's-Gravesande & Sieuwert Verster, from the CD/DVD 'ABLE TO BE'.
