Music and images for the end of time

Few works of art have a genesis as poignant as that of Quatuor pour la fin du temps. Olivier Messiaen wrote his musical end of days in 1941, in a prisoner of war camp in Poland. Inspired by the Biblical Apocalypse and the horrors of the present day, this devout Catholic didn’t create work about hope or despair, but instead a work filled with colours and harmonies, in a unique rhythmic language that manipulates the perception of time. Multimedia artist Anouk De Clercq captures those timeless musical visions in poetic video images that pick up where the music leaves off.
