‘#5xTypical’ is a series of music based interviews with musicians by Karen van Gilst. What do musicians listen to? While cleaning, during sexy time or when working out? Do they have specific songs for specific moments? Or do they listen to music to influence their emotions?

5xtypical Kika Sprangers (saxophone)

"Thelonious makes me happy and energized!" - Celia Swart (saxophone)

Wake up call: Capricornus - Austin Peralta

If something goes wrong with anything, this song always gives me inspiration to continue my journey. I compose a lot in this style for my band SWART. That’s why I find this one of the best songs ever.

In a melancholical mood: Twice - Robert Glasper

This track of Little Dragon is great as well, but when I feel a bit down, it only makes me more sad. This version of Robert Glasper is full of soul and brings me a relaxed mood.

In a happy mood: Monks dream - Thelonious monk

Thelonious makes me happy and energized!

When I’m in love: Untitled - D'angelo

The start of this song is so emotional. When I like someone, or when I’m in love even, I listen to this one a lot.

In a party mood: Deja Vu - Beyonce

Right before I go to a party, I listen to a lot of Beyonce. Especially her live records I find amazing, the songs are always slightly different than the once on her record.

Kika Sprangers

On her 14th she started composing. She attended the talent class at the ‘Zweewse Muziek School’, is allmost graduating the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, and is 20 at this moment. She is doing great to say the least! Although composing has her heart, she has her own band SWART. and plays the saxophone. If she could only listen to one song her whole life, she’d choose the first one. And personally, I think I can agree.
