On Friday 20 April, B-Classic meets at Labiomista. Koen Vanmechelen, B-Classic’s godfather, offers his studio and works of art for the performance of the exceptional music by Dick van der Harst.
The studio serves as the stage, the audience takes place on the balustrades while Dick van der Harst and the other musicians play his work of which they only know the basis. It will be an adventure, even for them, which is somewhat inevitable in this special location.
Koen Vanmechelen’s works of art are literally all around, even in the performance itself. Singers Lieselot De Wilde and Ekaterina Levental wear coats designed by the host himself and composer van der Harst is inspired by the wonderful mutations he sees. Even the piece itself is a mutation: a new musical lifeform created on the spot with eclectic musicians and styles. Jazz, eastern music, classical music, Marockin’ Brass and an overdose of marvel.
