Taking the lyrics of 'Bloed, Zweet en Tranen' (blood, sweat, and tears) by famous Dutch singer André Hazes as a starting point, I wondered if I could extract music from the lyrics. And could I then transform the outcome into something else again; a weave for instance? As great as it seemed at first to appropriate existing structures and alter them, the more I also became aware of all the possible loopholes this process produces.
