Bruges, Belgium—Become Ocean (Belgian Premiere)

March 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Michael Daugherty, UFO: V. Objects
Tan Dun, Water Concerto
John Luther Adams, Become Ocean (Belgian Premiere)

In keeping with the theme of water, the Belgian National Orchestra will also explore the sea depths with John Luther Adams’ Become Ocean. Described by the New Yorker as “the loveliest apocalypse in musical history”, Become Ocean
leads its audience into the water’s depths. In a combination of turbulence and eerie silence, the listener is immersed and surrounded by the symphony’s underlying peacefulness. The work is part of a cycle designed by Adams and based on the four natural elements. He believes that humans have the capacity to overcome the isolation and cynicism of modern society by connecting to something greater than themselves. The work received a Pulitzer Prize in 2014. The concert will be illustrated by the world premiere of a film by video artist Lillevan.

The work of Lillevan will be presented to you in World Premiere
As part of the Klara Festival
