Theatre-maker and 'wannabe countertenor' Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe partnered with Icelandic producer and composer Valgeir Sigurdsson (Björk, Feist, Damon Albarn) on the interface of electronic and contemporary classical music, with 'The art of listening' as the thematic starting point. Violinist Elisabeth Klinck joins them for the shows.

In a world where screams dominate and silence has become a scarce commodity, the artists ask how we can revalue and reclaim the art of listening. The trio translates the answer to this into a 60-minute soundscape.

Experience this creation as an atmospheric twilight concert in Heers castle park, with the north facade of the castle as an imposing back-drop. All proceeds from the concert will go to the restoration of this late-gothic heritage site.

In collaboration with Herita VZW & Municipality of Heers

Atmosphere & experience

The concert takes place outdoors. Bring your own chair, cushion or picnic blanket and settle in a spot of your choice on the castle grounds.
The castle bar with local drinks opens at 7pm. So feel free to take your time to explore this historic place before the concert starts!
Know that with your visit you are contributing to the conservation of this special monument!
