DONDER IN THE DARK
Donder – the trio of double bassist Stan Callewaert, pianist Harrison Steingueldoir and drummer Casper Van De Velde – transforms itself into a tantalizing, unusual concept.
The audience settles down around the band on mats and cushions in a barely lit room. The line between stage and hall – musicians and audience – blurs. The darkness acts as a magnifying glass for the smallest details. You become aware of your own breathing, every smallest movement and sound in and around the room. The musicians and audience disappear into a cocoon, disconnected from the outside world. The sense of time and place fades away. A collective trance is created between dream and reality, where everything and everyone becomes a part of the music.
How does the context in which we listen to music affect our concert experience? And what effect does this have on the musicians and the music that is created? In this series of lying down concerts, Donder finds out.
