Vondelpark - De Speelplaats van Childrens

Vondelpark - The Children's Playground

Approx. Time: 15 minutes, 14 seconds

We researched parks and fairgrounds around the world and decided to create a composition about children playing in a park, Vondelpark, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We decided to use the spoken voices of a Dutch family in the piece to provide some counterpoint to the music. Entire text used in the piece is in Dutch. We utilized Alta Vista Babelfish for the transliteration.

When trying to come up with popular names for the two children's voices featured in the composition, we decided that the names of the reigning Queen and the Prince of Orange would have to be names often chosen by mothers and fathers in The Netherlands. So, the names Beatrix and Willem are used for the names of the children in the spoken voices section of the composition.
