Sensual experience

Eric Sleichim and BL!NDMAN once again explore the limits of the concert experience. The central idea for this project is transformation. Pieces intertwine: ancient and contemporary music, known and unknown, familiar and unfamiliar, they all fit together into a kaleidoscopic, sensual experience. For the occasion, Luc Brewaeys has composed seven modules which undergo constant metamorphosis in the course of the performance.

programme: George Antheil, Luc Brewaeys, Dietrich Buxtehude, William Byrd, Michael Finnissy, Philip Glass, Heiner Goebbels, György Ligeti, Alvin Lucier, Conlon Nancarrow, Steve Reich, Kaija Saariaho, Eric Sleichim, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Anton Webern, John White, Matthew Wright ...
