To commemorate receiving my copy of Thomas Zwijsen‘s new album Nylonized, today’s song is his latest video on YouTube.Thomas Zwijsen is a Dutch classical guitarist who has made his name for his unusual repertoire. His first album, Nylon Maiden, consisted of 11 arrangements of Iron Maiden songs for classical guitar. His second album, Nylonized, contained a collection of songs from different artists (such as The Who, Deep Purple, Adele and several others) and a few original works. Since then he has released several albums of similar cover versions and original pieces.
5 pm (In The Morning) is Thomas’s newest video. It was “inspired by a lazy holiday with my girlfriend in Brazil, where 5 PM becomes morning.” This video was filmed in the gardens of the beautiful “Verbeke Foundation“, museum of contemporary art in Belgium. Artworks in the video are The Dome by Aeneas Wilder and Second Life by Will Beckers.
