NEUTRAL DENSITY WITH MICHEL DENEUVE AT SUMMER BUMMER 2019
We’ll have a new screening performance with MICHEL DENEUVE at Summer Bummer on August 23rd. The performance will take place at Het Salon in De Studio, Antwerp.
“Since 1975 – after a meeting with Bernard, one of the Baschet brothers – the French musician, composer, improviser Michel Deneuve dedicates himself to the Cristal Baschet, an instrument played by stroking Cristal bars, for which he studies and puts into practice a playing method revealing the exceptional possibilities of this instrument. In order to increase the popularity of the Cristal Baschet he composes instrumental pieces, ranging from solo to symphonic orchestra, including stage music and film scores and performs since more than thirty years on stages throughout the world. For Summer Bummer, Deneuve will create a live soundtrack to Neutral Density, a filmproject of director Jef Mertens (Taping Policies), developed as a canvas for musicians to improvise on. After the concert, under the guidance of Deneuve you can discover the exceptional Cristal Baschet up close. Those among you (young and old) who actually want to play one of the beautiful Baschet sculptures can do so at the Workshop by Deneuve on day 2 of the festival.”
