Wig label
In celebration of the 25th jubilee of the Wig record label it released, with great success, the CD Duo Baars Henneman & Dave BurrellTrandans (Wig 25) in 2017.
(…) There are no ruins on Trandans, from the beginning to end this is marvelous, improvised music. A music so marvelous that we tend to forget that it did not exist before Ab Baars, Dave Burrell and Ig Henneman stepped on the stage of the Bimhuis that one night in September. And which after that intriguing concert did exist only as a memory. Until now.

Workshops and talks In 2017 Henneman had a very inspiring time at IMIR in Stavanger (NO), and in Vienna at the Universität für Musik with the Vienna premiere of her composition Feather-Light Monkeys for three bass clarinets in the project ‘Low Vibrations’ for which she also gave masterclasses on composition/improvisation and a composers talk. In Vancouver she gave an artist talk at the Academic Symposium UBC together with Ab Baars.
