VSFs are cinematic impressions of several minutes. Departing from historical images, they give a penetrating impression of the context that produced Bartók's string quartets. They bring the music home and swallow the contemporary listener unashamedly back in time. The VSFs are part of the total concert experience and always precede the work in question.
Lise Bruyneel video artist, Pieter Bergé concept
Lise Bruyneel, or La fabrique des regards, navigates across the borders between the visual and performing arts, with interdisciplinarity as a driving force behind her. Through her experience as a cello player, art historian, dramaturge and her background in visual communication and graphic design, she connects different art forms.
Her scenography binds the musical ‘last words’ from the performance as a visual common thread.
Pieter Bergé is professor of Musicology at KU Leuven and artistic director of Festival 20·21. Aside from academic work, he also frequently writes texts for amateurs. Recently, an illustrated music history for youngsters (Hoe groen klinkt een gitaar?) and an essay on the ‘inaccessible’ music of the 20th century (Wat valt er eigenlijk te begrijpen?) have been published. Both books have been awarded a KLARA prize for best music publication.
