“The imaginary is what tends to become real.” – André Breton

Imaginary Mirror

Equipped with a variety of trumpets, a ridiculous array of percussion instruments, and far too many electronics, Wim Van Hasselt and Koen Plaetinck combine to create an entirely new musical space. Presenting brand-new commissions as well as arrangements, they stretch the boundaries of classical music into a unique world of sounds and visuals, infused with traditional music, electro-underground, improvisation and – above all – their own vivid personalities. What if dreaming became reality? The imaginary tangible? When living a fairy-tale the fantastic is the concrete…

Inspired by the electrifying philosophy of the Surrealists from the roaring 20’s, they create a stage full of thoughts – in place of stories – their music literally surrounded by compelling visuals.

They drown the audience in colour and sound. 

You will not need a manual.

The beauty of music. Nothing less, nothing more?
