A Minimal Trip

[strings] + Vlaams Radiokoor + Fabian Coomans + Sigvards Kļava

Get ready for an incantatory concert night. An incantatory concert evening that plays with repetition. Repetition of sounds and tones, repetition of words and notes. In short: the pulsating, psychedelic experience of an evening dedicated to the minimalist movement. Get immersed and carried away in an unsustainable musical current. Flow punches assured in the iconic scores of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, David Lang, Wim Mertens and Michael Nyman. Bl!ndman Strings is prepared by our side in all this repetitiveness. Get ready!
