Truus de Groot in WORM. Sunday 27th November the ‘radio-opera’
Music For Dive Bars in Dr. Klangendum at 24:00 .

The past weeks Truus de Groot was resident in Worm and spent a part of that in the sound studio, where she made the ‘radio-opera’
Music For Dive Bars for Dr. Klangendum and WORM .

It will be broadcast on Sunday 27th November at 24:00 in Dr. Klangendum.

It is actually a sort of follow up to another radio piece that Truus de Groot made many years ago in the Worm Studio , ‘Truus Makes Waves’.

Music For Dive Bars comprises 10 songs, composed and recorded in the Wormstudio , accompanied by commentary by Johnny Dowd. It’s very likely that it will be published on record, but more about that later.
