Benjamin Van Esser & ChampdAction — [IN]VISIBLE


  • 20.00 Kamermuziekzaal
  • 21.15 Expected end time
  • 19.15 Introduction by Klaas Coulembier


An electro-acoustic, multimedia experience based on Benjamin Van Esser’s struggle with tinnitus

[IN]VISIBLE tells the story of Benjamin Van Esser’s struggle with tinnitus. Throughout the performance, he translates his experiences into an electro-acoustic, multimedia experience: the disorientation that strikes with the initial 'attack', the experimental electro-shock therapy, the benumbing tranquilisers and finally the cure. Every aspect is embodied here, in an often raw and harsh, but minimalist musical language, given structure by electronic manipulation. It is by detaching from our familiar acoustic sound world that [IN]VISIBLE wants to create a new reality: a reality in which this seemingly virtual but very present condition finds its solution. [IN]VISIBLE is part of Benjamin Van Esser’s Doctor of Creative Arts graduation project Towards an Artistic Performance Strategy for Computer Musicians.
