about the concert
Do musicians have the last word on the creation of a film, a music video, a digital concert, or do the visual artists have the final say? Klarafestival has created a unique experiment, commissioning four duos, each consisting of a composer and a visual artist, to create a new work.
Saskia Venegas Aernouts, a Spanish-Belgian composer, forms a duo with video artist Nele Fack. Pianist-composer Frederik Croene works with visual artist Karl van Welden. Multimedia-artist Anouk De Clercq calls on the British music producer Sebastian Gainsborough (Vessel). Guy Vandromme (piano) and the choreographer Isabella Soupart bring the evening to a close with a composition by German composer Eva-Maria Houben.
Sound & Vision also comprises two compositions that would, under normal circumstances, have premiered at Klarafestival 2020: Parvati by Wim Henderickx (with visuals by Lieven Vanhove) and Televisioniist by the Canadian composer and visual artist Nicole Lizée. Echo de Clèves, a composition written last summer by Frederik Neyrinck as part of Festivals for Compassion with visuals by photographer Peter De Bruyne, will also be performed.
