As part of the multi-year Re-Generation programme, six composers were commissioned to compose new music based on objects and stories from a museum's permanent display. Location for the concerts this year are in Museum Arnhem, Verwey Museum Haarlem, Kröller-Müller Museum, CODA Museum, Stedelijk Museum Breda and Kasteel Huis Bergh.

The new compositions can be inspired by the entire museum, a painting or sculpture, or the history of the city where it is located. This allows the pieces of music to reflect, comment or offer a different perspective; a kind of musical audience mediation. This creates a composition of about six minutes for each museum. For Verwey Museum Haarlem composer Klaas de Vries made a piece of music inspired by the famous Droste tin from the collection.

The full program of approx 45 minutes is performed as a live concert in each museum and starts at 15 p.m.
