Concept

Shapeshift is a flexible performing ensemble, or band, collective and orchestra! Shapeshift is based in The Netherlands and is founded by the composers Jan-Peter de Graaff, Reza Namavar, Christiaan Richter, Maxim Shalygin en Janco Verduin, and percussionist Konstantyn Napolov. Shapeshift brings exceptional and unusual music productions performed by the best soloists of the new generation, combining quality, vast possibilities, adventure, imagination, excitement, experiment, and unprejudiced freshness with a sharp artistic vision.

Adventurous

Come to our shows and be surprised! First and foremost, we bring exciting and brand new music of high quality. In addition, Shapeshift retakes recent music that hasn't yet received the attention - or performance - it deserves. As it is very interesting to hear parallels, precursors and relationships between music written in different periods, Shapeshift as well combines new music with music of earlier eras.

Flexible

Shapeshift works in close collaboration with composers, tailored to their methods. The composition of the group varies depending on the needs of the production. The size can range from small to very large, while still retaining the unique character and personality of Shapeshift. This all makes sure the ensemble is the perfect basis for bringing innovative ideas into practice.

Open

Shapeshift doesn't just serve a niche, but is there for all listeners that are open for an enriching experience. We strive to create an open culture, without artificial barriers. Good communication is a key factor. We connect composers, musicians, listeners and the music itself, resulting in complete involvement and intensifying the experience and understanding of the music.
