Notes on Hopper is a raw and poetic performance about the life and works of Edward Hopper seen through the eyes of his wife and fellow artist Josephine Nivison. With songs, improvisations and spoken word Notes on Hopper tells the story behind the paintings and his troubled marriage.
Written, sung and performed by Judith Scholte, with music by multiple award-winning composer Paul M. van Brugge. The music is performed by two masters of improvisation; Dimitar Bodurov, piano and electronics and Nils van Haften, saxophones and bass clarinet.
Edward Hopper's most famous painting is Nighthawks (1952). A New York café late at night with two men and a woman sitting at the bar. Loneliness and isolation are typical themes in Hopper's work. At the same time his paintings are intensely cinematic, they're always the beginning of a story.
