Biography


Since 2012 pianist and composer Michiel Scheen (1963, Amsterdam) cooperates with Raoul van de Weide (bass, cracklebox, sound objects) and George Hadow (drums) in the Blue Lines Trio.

Besides that, he regularly plays a duo with saxophonist and clarinetist Tobias Delius and with the Jan Nijdam Quartet.

After a retreat from 2000 untill 2004, he formed a new quartet with Ab Baars, Han Bennink and Ernst Glerum. They recorded the well received CD "Dance, my dear?".
From 1986 untill 1999 Scheen worked with many musicians, amongst others with Ab Baars, Conrad Bauer, Johannes Bauer, Han Bennink, Jaap Blonk, Anthony Braxton, Tobias Delius, Cor Fuhler, Hans Hasebos, Gerry Hemingway, Wiek Hijmans, Guus Janssen, George Lewis, Misha Mengelberg, Roscoe Mitchell, Butch Morris, Jacques Palinckx, Evan Parker, Hans Reichl, Vladimir Tolkachev, Tang Xu and John Zorn.
He also worked with the international ensemble Ohrkiste, led by Radu Malfatti (a.o. with Evan Parker), the Paul Termos Tentet and Dubbel Express, the electro-acoustic trio YPON (with Michael Barker and Wiek Hijmans), Structures, led by Peter van Bergen, Cardueles Cardueles (leader: Cor Fuhler), the Dickinson Projekt by Ig Henneman, Kenvermogen (with a.o. Wiek Hijmans and Hans Hasebos), the Maarten Altena Ensemble (collaborations with a.o. Remco Campert, Mark Terstroet, Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell, Lawrence Butch Morris, John Zorn and theatergroup Discordia; tours through Europe, USA, Canada and USSR), the theaterproduction "Elektra and Orestes" by director Erik-Ward Geerlings and composer Arthur Sauer (theatergroup FACT Rotterdam), Seafood (led by Alan Laurillard) and the Object Theatre Orchestra (a duo with Augusto Forti).

In 1991 Michiel Scheen was commisioned by NOS-radio and Jazzmarathon Groningen to compose a live-set, which resulted in the project "Rijs", with a.o. Jaap Blonk, Tristan Honsinger and Paul Koek. He initiated projects and ensembles (Filiaal, the Michiel Scheen Sextet and -Quartet and TRIKLINION), with a.o. Ab Baars, Jaap Blonk, Michael Vatcher, Frank van Berkel and Hans van der Meer. Since 1990 Scheen recieved commisions and stipendia for his work as a composer from the "Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst" (the Dutch fund for composers).

Scheen also joined the Dutch jazz-musicians union: the BIM (Beroepsvereniging van Improviserende Musici). During 1994-1996 he was a member of the board, and during 1996-1998 he was the chairman of this union. As a chairman Scheen engaged in contacts with the Ministery of Education, Culture and Science, several funds for artists and other unions. He also was involved in the "Stichting de Centrale", a service-unit for freelance musicians.

Duo Tobias Delius / Michiel Scheen


Tobias Delius - tenorsax, clarinet
Michiel Scheen - piano

Tobias Delius’ musicianship can be described in one word: adventurous. His quest for surprise and suspense are the sources in his creative mind, which he uses to intensely fascinate his listeners with. Delius’ playing is self-confident and overwhelming. Whatever musical situation or event, Tobias’ identity and musical personality is very outspoken. He is an unique instrumentalist, with a beautiful and authentic sound, that you can’t but love.
With Michiel Scheen he finds a worthy partner. The idiomatic pianist is a barrel full of ideas; he suddenly can surprise the audience with a passage in the highest register of the piano. Scheen’s playing has his own solid base and consistency, with lots of dynamics and technique. Influences of Thelonious Monk and Cecil Taylor are alternated with the spatial elegance of Duke Ellington.
Together, Tobias and Michiel are looking for new musical ways, horizons and expressions, which they are capable of making them fascinating to follow. The program of the duo continually evolves, from original compositions to Ellington and Fats Waller.

Tobias Delius zoekt avontuur, verrassing en spanning; dat zijn de bronnen waaraan zijn creatieve geest zich laaft en die zijn luisteraars telkens weer weten te fascineren. Zijn saxofoonspel klinkt zelfverzekerd en overtuigend. Wat er ook gespeeld wordt: Tobias behoudt altijd zijn eigen identiteit en muzikale persoonlijkheid. Ook dat maakt hem tot een unieke instrumentalist met een onontkoombare, prachtige toon, waarvan je wel mòet houden. In Michiel Scheen heeft hij een uitstekende evenknie. Deze eigenzinnige pianist is dan ook een vat vol ideeën. Zo kan hij je zomaar verrassen met een kort solostukje in de hoogste regionen van het toetsenbord. Zijn spel is gedegen en geworteld in een solide basis. Hij speelt met veel dynamiek en een uiterst verzorgde techniek. Tayloriaans vuurwerk wisselt hij net zo gemakkelijk af met spaarzame pianoschetsen à la Ellington. Gezamenlijk zoeken deze muzikanten nieuwe wegen, horizonten en expressie mogelijkheden, die ze voor de luisteraars boeiend weten te verklanken. Het programma biedt een interessant palet aan kleuren: van eigen composities - pittig, elegant, melancholiek,vrolijk - tot Ellington en Fats Waller.

Michiel Scheen Quartet

Ab Baars - saxophones, clarinet
Han Bennink - drums
Ernst Glerum - bass
Michiel Scheen - piano, compositions

2004: Dance My dear?
In 2003 Michiel Scheen invited three prominent Dutch musicians: Ab Baars (reeds), Ernst Glerum (bass) and Han Bennink (drums), to join him in a Quartet. After a few years of musical in-activity, Scheen is back with his highly individual and recognizable style. With this Quartet, he strives to combine his very personal interpretation of jazz with the playful and adventurous nature of improvised music.

"For this group I composed pieces that feature individual freedom for the players. And it’s wonderful to see what such great musicians as Ab, Ernst and Han do with the material: their intuition and imagination is enormous! Melodic phrases are carefully cut into pieces and catapulted into space, lumps of harmonies hanging on the side. And their conception of tempo is mesmerizing: sometimes we play in four different pulses; it's not the beat that generates 'swing', but the more freely phrased pulses. There is no monotonous beat, but a kind of polyphonic, multi-subjective swing. If you would dance to it, every move would be permitted. An inevitable and often returning inspiration is the powerful and frenzy work of Thelonious Monk. Especially, my harmonic idiom is clearly influenced by him. But I think his music contains more and other musical possibilities, with its angular, pounding and rumbling, razor-sharp shining lyricism. He is a savage sculptor of sounds, a musical architect of genius, with a melancholic, happy, Dadaist and hopeful vision. With Monk, the world is an awful little bit more beautiful. Furthermore, I'm very happy to be able to work with musicians that still contribute so much to the development of improvised music; through their creativity, the vitality of improvised music is guaranteed."

Ab Baars - saxophones, clarinet (1955, Axel) collaborated with Harry de Wit, Wolter Wierbos and Mariëtte Rouppe van der Voort in the quartet Cumulus. He worked with a.o. Guus Janssen, Theo Loevendie, Willem van Manen, Steve Lacy, Maarten Altena, Roscoe Mitchell, Misha Mengelberg, John Carter, Anthony Braxton, Cor Fuhler, Gerry Hemmingway, Cecil Taylor, de EX, Sunny Murray, George Lewis and Ig Henneman. Now he works with Mengelbergs ICP Orchestra, and recently his trio with Wilbert de Joode and Martin van Duijnhoven celebrated their 12th anniversary.

Ernst Glerum - bass (1955) a much demanded bassplayer and currently working with the Amsterdam String Trio, Available Jelly, the ICP Orchestra, the ensembles of Guus Janssen and the collectively managed trio with Michiel Borstlap and Han Bennink.

Han Bennink - drums (1942, Zaandam) is, besides a visual artist, an internationaly renowned solo-player and much demanded percussionist. He worked with Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Eric Dolphy, and had/has a major influence on the development of the Dutch and European improvised music. For more than 30 years, he works together with Misha Mengelberg, as a duo, but also with the ICP Orchestra. Furthermore he worked with a.o. Peter Brötzmann, Steve Beresford, Eugene Chadbourne, Fred van Hove, Derek Bailey, Ernst Reijseger, Michael Moore, Willem Breuker, Marion Brown, Don Cherry, Alex von Schlippenbach, Lee Konitz, Steve Lacy, Albert Mangelsdorff, Cor Fuhler, Tobias Delius, Dudu Pukwana, Keshavan Maslak, Toshinori Kondo, Leo Cuypers, Roswell Rudd, Harry Miller, Conrad Bauer, George Lewis, Teo Joling, Sean Bergin, Peter Kowald, Cecil Taylor, de EX, Fred Frith, 'Butch' Morris, Anthony Braxton, Ray Anderson, Myra Melford, Dave Douglas, Eric Boeren, Evan Parker and with kind of practically everybody.

Boucalé!

De muziek van Paul Termos (1952-2003)

Michiel Scheen - piano, arrangementen
Michael Vatcher - slagwerk
Raoul van der Weide - contrabas, klankobjecten, crackle box
Wolter Wierbos - trombone

Componist, altsaxofonist en improvisator Paul Termos (1952 -2003) schreef aanstekelijke, vitale en ogenschijnlijk bedrieglijk eenvoudige improvisatie stukken. Stukken die vaak opzettelijk aansturen op 'gecomponeerde misverstanden' en alle ruimte bieden aan eigenzinnige improvisaties. Met het verdwijnen van de componist echter dreigt ook zijn prikkelende repertoire ten onrechte te verdwijnen.
Boucalé! wil dit repertoire - op basis van bijvoorbeeld classics als Bokkenrijders dans, Pok, The Invisible Man en For Sandy Nelson - actualiseren en nieuwe impulsen geven.
Ook zullen drie nog niet eerder uitgevoerde compositie schetsen uit de muzikale nalatenschap van Paul Termos op het programma staan: Kop op!, After Travelling en Very Good Weather Today. Deze gecomponeerde aanzetten zijn door Michiel Scheen voor Boucalé! gearrangeerd.
Boucalé! bestaat uit 4 musici die nauw en jarenlang in verschillende combinaties met Paul Termos hebben samengewerkt. Sinds de oprichting van het 'PUNT-UIT orkest' van trombonist Bert Koppelaar (1978-79) en daarna via het instant composing 'Paul Termos Trio' (1979-1985), 'Guus Janssen Septet/Orkest', 'Maarten Altena Ensemble' en -kwartet en Paul Termos' eigen 'Tentet' en 'Dubbel Express Ensemble.
Boucalé! vormt een creatief eerbewijs aan een open en bevlogen lyricus wiens uitgesproken muziek zich ontwikkelde vanuit de creatieve spanning tussen lichtvoetig alledaags muzikaal optimisme en de diepgang van voelbare maar onuitgesproken onderhuidse weemoed.

Press Quotes

On the cd "Dance, My Dear", by Michiel Scheen Quartet

Village Voice, 27 juni 2005
"Honorable mention: Odd twists and sharp angles, post-Monk, post-Mengelberg even."
(Frances Davis)

Cadence, November 2004
"Jazz might be dying (in a protected death scene), but New Dutch Swing is alive and well, at least if this recent disc on Data is any indication ... Oddly swinging patterns lie at the crux of most of Scheen's compositions. Most are born out of stunted thematic seeds that bloom under the improvisatory irrigation of his esteemed cohorts ... Much of the madcap humor expectedly endemic to Dutch improv might be missing here, but the precision playing and emotional vibrancy that are also hallmarks of the idiom present themselves in abundance. Scheen draws on the tradition's strenghts while tempering his music with a degree of sincerity that is quite refreshing. Hearing Bennink do the same - and in doing so shrug another layer of his formulaic persona - is also a treat ... "

Wire - July 2004
"Pianist and composer Michiel Scheen, born 1963 in Amsterdam, has worked with Anthony Braxton, Guus Janssen, George Lewis and Roscoe Mitchell. That's he's still little-known is at odds with the quality of this disc from the small Dutch label, in which his highly original compositions are interpreted by a quartet with Ab Baars on tenor-sax and clarinet, Ernst Glerum on bass and Han Bennink on drums. The stuttering fanfare "Similarities" signals an original voice, but is no preparation for the extraordinary "God In Heaven (Stay!)" a kind of meditation on the repeated single-note like Thelonious Monk's "Thelonious", its fierce drive offering a European take on free jazz's pulse/no metre concept. In fact the parallels with Monk's role as composer for band are significant though a fine improvising pianist, Scheen dominates through his compositions, which the other players serve admirably. "This Time", an interrupted ballad, exploits silence in a way unfamiliar in jazz; "Idols" features Baars's cavernous tenor. In concept, almost everything on this totally outstanding release seems new."
(Andy Hamilton)

NRC - August 2004
" Intelligent improvisations, that first 'wash out your ears' and then immerse you in beautiful detailed embroidery... the music may be well influenced by the work of Thelonious Monk, but Scheen does not imitate - he has got a highly authentic and obstinate vocabulary. After a time-out Scheen last year made a comeback with the also strong CD "Goodbye!" and now, with the help of Dutch top league musicians Baars, Glerum and Bennink, Scheen really transcends himself... "

website JazzWeekly
"... Ballads aren't really part of Scheen's game plan, or that of DANCE, MY DEAR which offers up supersonic power almost from its first notes...
... Scheen can improvise at warp speed if he's so inclined, but his chief joy is knitting together freely phrased pulses into a distinctive movement that melds earlier jazz harmonies and rhythms with a 21st Century conception...
... the key to the session come in the title tune and the two that bookend it. Reminiscent of the sort of slurred, boozy ballad as you could have heard at Minton's in 1943 when Thelonious Monk was woodshedding his distinctive style, "Idols" - a implicative title - finds the pianist adopting the key clips and pressured touch of Monk and another 100% original Herbie Nichols...
... Scheen prefers a herky-jerky beat fill with broken chords ...
... "Dance, my dear?" whose title in this context sounds not so much as an invitation as a challenge...

Jazz - June 2004
...throughout the album, the intensity is build up beautifully...every piece is an adventure on its own."

Dagblad van het Noorden
"... thoughtful, conceptual, with a lot of freedom...spontaneous jumble is alternated with open structures and intense silences ...a strong 'comeback'."

Weblog Draai Om Je Oren
"'This Time It Will Last Forever'. A strong melody with a dramatic sustain on one chord - a perfect example of how silence can be felt...the balance in the group is excellent and on the album, the producer has captured and profiled the instruments real beautiful ."


On his ensembles:

"Michiel Scheen dismisses the limits of improvisation" (Trouw)

"A musician with authentic ideas, of which we never can have enough" (Leidse Courant)

".. the ensemble Filiaal that opened with 'Buts', a beautiful composition from leader/pianist Michiel Scheen" (NRC)

"..the pieces of TRIKLINION blend darting spontaneity; the raw energy of electric, amplified instruments; and a refined structural sense. The music veers from brash abandon to meticulously constructed interplay balanced with a keen sense of humor... Scheen has superb technique and an astute ear for collective group interaction." (Cadence)


On his solo-work:

"The nine compositions manoeuvre between Monk-ish bravoure and pointed lyricism, but the balance is perfect. Scheen is a master in creating space; he not only knows when to play which note, but also knows when to release it, and even when to skip it" (NRC)

"The balance between composition en improvisation and the diversity in composition-models is very well done. Scheen works with coincidence. How capricious his thoughts and music might be, it always got a certain logic and transparency. Scheen is a versatile musician with a strong identity" (JazzNU)

"Most of the pieces are witty little musical puzzles but the erudition is not overbearing." (The Wire)

"With Scheen, hidden irony and alienating distance generate subcutaneous dimensions. His versatility is marvelous" (Trouw)

"Sonorous, fresh, masterful pianoplaying" (Jazz Freak)

"In stead of etheric sketches, Scheen links his free associations to recognizable, measured musical elements, executed in a virtuoso manner" (de Volkskrant)

"Scheens lovely obstinate interpretations of Monk-classics can be heard tonight on Radio 4. To appreciate them, the listener should release his conception of the original versions. If he can do that, there is much to enjoy. And to laugh! ... His interpretations sound surprisingly contemporary: maybe Monk nowadays would have played them like this. An integer, humorous and imprudent cross-over of jazz and contemporary dance-music." (VPRO-magazine)

"99% of Dutch releases can't compete with this CD ... When you stop dancing and start to listen close, you hear how extremely funny and smart it is made ... a strange melancholic optimism that hiphop sometimes has - it's like furious joy." (Rebound)


On Duo's:

weblog www.draaiomjeoren.com
"This obstinate pianist is a barrel full of ideas. He suddenly surprises you with a solo only on the highest regions of the piano. His work is solid, dynamic and technically polished. Taylor-like fireworks are easily alternated with Ellingtonesk poetic scetches ... His composition "This time it will last forever" is a delicate 'lovesong', with long silences, which create enormous tension that truly enhance the meaning of the title ... Tobias Delius and Michiel Scheen are excellent and unique jazzpersonalities, who's adventures are really worth listening to."

"The duo of Michiel Scheen and Gerry Hemmingway (percussion) was truly exciting. It was breathtaking music and respectful cooperation by gentlemen" (Parool)


On his work as a sideman:
"Michiel Scheen made an impression with a composition called 'Andermaal'. The in essence simple work contained thrilling rags of melody in a strange, continually changing landscape. He also played a stunning and moving solo." (Trouw)

" ... Then everybody seems lost, until Michiel Scheen thinks: "all is well, that ends well" and, with a strong argument, finishes the piece only on the right side of the keyboard" (NRC)

" ... the crazy improvised part of Michiel Scheen ..." (Haarlems Dagblad)
