The project


With pianist/curator Frederik Croene and composers Cathy van Eck, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri, Falk Hübner, Matthew Shlomowitz, Simon Steen-Andersen, David Helbich, Stefan Prins  and Laura Maes.

Eight composers accepted to compose ‘a piece’ for ‘a pianist’.  No restrictions have been formulated; the composers are free to rephrase the role of the pianist, his instrument or even the very concept of a recital itself.  The composers have been selected because of their resistance to categorisation and a common interest in visual, theatrical, intersensory and conceptual aspects of contemporary classical composition.



Cathy van Eck - pièce d'ameublement

Performance (creation)

Foto CathyIn this performance the piano is used in its long tradition as a piece of furniture in the living room. The piano is equipped with various contact microphones. The pianist will not play the piano by using the keys but will create a musique d'ameublement through various everyday activities such as dusting off and decorating the piano.
