This week we’re featuring SOUNZ Contemporary Award finalist Jeroen Speak, who is nominated with ’Serendipity Fields’. This is the second time Jeroen has been nominated for the Award.
“It is very inspiring seeing the high quality of new music being composed by New Zealand's younger generation today. Salina Fisher and Chris Gendall are both remarkable composers, with unique voices, I congratulate them both.”
Jeroen introduces 'Serendipity Fields' below and you can read more about him and the work on SOUNZ Online:

So thrilled that another of our commissions is a finalist for this year's SOUNZ Contemporary Award - way to go, Jeroen!!
