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.

Composers

Frederik Croene

Frederik Croene started his career as a self-taught musician before taking up traditional music education. Fueled by his passion for contemporary music and new performance practices, he’s presented a radical mix of styles and techniques both in concert and recording, that’s been received enthusiastically throughout. Alongside his work as a performing musician, Croene rethinks traditional settings the piano and performer find themselves in through the concept of the deconstructed piano, with extraordinarily surprising results.
