‘#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)

"I’ve got 7 records of this guy and probably could have put any of those songs here. " - Daniel Eskens (Bass)

Imuhar - Bonbino

African guitar music; from Niger! I don’t think I have to explain this one.

O Sacrum Convivium Mikrokosmos - Olivier Messiaen

Listening to this one is an experience every time. The sound that hits you when you let a big choir sing this composition, it’s mighty. Also, it’s impossible to do anything else than listen when this is playing. Just listen, do nothing more.

Speed Trials - Elliot Smith

I’ve got 7 records of this guy and probably could have put any of those songs here. In almost every single one of them you can feel the dark and depressive character sometimes. However, it doesn’t lead to only heavy music, it provides a lot of energy. Besides that i like the ‘No-Bullshit’ sound of the band and arrangements.

I Remember you - Cheeck/Iverson/Street/Rossy live at Jarboree

This probably is one of my favorite pair of improvising musicians playing together. The teamwork, the focus, the freedom they take, it leads to one of the most awesome live records i know. Piece by piece they are, for me, the most inspiring musicians.

Beach House - Walk in the park.

Awesome to hear what an incredible unique sound this band has. It’s a see of sounds that hits you which I like very much.
