Franck Vigroux & Kurt D'Haeseleer pres. "The Island"


The audiovisual concert ‘The Island’ is the most recent
collaboration between composer Franck Vigroux and video artist Kurt
d'Haeseleer. A prolix duo who endeavour to find common modes of
artistic language and try to invent synesthetic experiences with an
identity of their own.

'The Island’ is a sensorial, associative and electrifying
experience, inspired by a number of stories of islands and valleys
destined to be submerged by the construction of a hydroelectric dam,
causing deep human and geographic upheaval. The immersions of

(which is so big it influenced the speed of rotation of Planet
Earth) spring to mind.

'The Island’ questions the replacement of one world by another and
our blind belief in progress. A phantasmagorical universe unfolds
through incisive electronic music and reality-bending video images,
resulting in a "mental journey" through a topography of mutating
