LUX EX’ THE PHILOSOPHER

IMPROVISATION * PHILOSOPHY * ELECTRO-AKOESTIC


TICKETS

Café open 19:30
Concert 20:30



The Philosopher is a combination of exceptionally talented young musicians on the one hand and philosophical - or existential - questions on the other. How do you translate a current question or statement into music? More precisely, how do you translate such a question or current topic into a non-linguistic and much more intuitive medium like music? Creating special music around philosophical, social or existential questions is the crux of The Philosopher. Hanne de Backer, Isabelle Duthoit, Marta Warelis and Raphaël Vanoli are extraordinary musicians who are able to create a unique world of sound.

Luc Ex (akoestische basgitaar/samples), Hanne de Backer (bariton saxofoon), Isabelle Duthoit (stem/klarinet), Marta Warelis (piano/keyboard) en Raphaël Vanoli (gitaar/elektronica) zijn buitengewone muzikanten die een unieke klankwereld weten te creëren.

Not only because of their craftsmanship, but also because of their musicality and the unique sound world they know how to create. The audience will receive a program booklet in advance. It states which questions are 'addressed'. This way, just like with the opera, they can read in advance what it will be about. For example, there will be an issue dedicated to Karl Popper's 'Paradox of Tolerance' with the title: 'Shouldn't you be intolerant of those who are intolerant?'. Characteristic of intolerance is not wanting to listen to the other person. This will be reflected in the music. The exact connection between music and philosophical questions is deliberately not explained. That is up to the imagination of the viewer himself. Everyone can get what they want out of it. The musicians of this current new music are also given a lot of space. In this way, audience and musician together create the meaning of this challenging performance.
