Matrix asked the pianist / composer Frederik Croene to collaborate with a group of children from Fabota, a community centre in Leuven. The children were given a place around and at the piano, while they also appeared in a video documenting their walk from Fabota to the STUK venue. The music creates a chronological interaction between the video and the live event. Besides being a structural part of the composition, the walk is also a metaphor for the figurative distance between the two locations.

Frederik Croene (premiere)
Frederik Croene (1973) developed a handful trajectories in which he reflects on the ever changing and multi-layered identities of the classical pianist. He played and recorded some classical repertoire and worked intensively with contemporary composers. Other trajectories focus more on transdisciplinary art, improvisation and intuitive performance/studio recording.
