The organizers of the Leuven Jazz to summon the visitors of the two concerts ‘Book of Air’, which is the 17-piece band Vvolk under the leadership of the brothers Stijn and Bert Cools tonight at 19h30 and 22h in the Predikherenkerk in Leuven, because of the atmospheric music already lying to attend. “We do provide blankets, but everyone should own a ligmatje bring,” said organizer Danny Theuwis. The concert at 22h, incidentally, is sold out.
‘Slowed down music’ is the motto of this band to the limits of performance and improvisation explores and with a klankenbad is a meditative story. In the new cd ‘the Book of Air – Vvolk’ which the band tonight in Leuven will play, again, the slowness and silent musical motion search, which results in “a totaalbeweging where perception of space and time disappears”.
The sixth edition of Leuven Jazz, on 25 march concluded with a concert by Melanie Di Biasio in The Depot, is today in its sixth show. Other leaders still to arrive are the ‘Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet” on 22/3 in the Stadsschouwburg, Zara McFarlane, Nubya Garcia and DJ Sofie on 23/3 in The Depot, and a whole host of drummers including Sons of Kemet XL on 24/5 in the Theatre.
