About this album

“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?

Works by COMPOSERS: Henderickx, Wohl, Quartier, Maier, Pärt, Lizée, Van Bouwel, Ravel, Stockhausen

De Volkskrant

Ruim baan voor de verbeelding op verrassend album.

Opus Klassiek

Het is aldus een unieke mix geworden van het traditionele (wat slechts in zeer bescheiden mate present is), ‘electro-underground', improvisatie (eigentijdser kan het eigenlijk niet) en de ‘elektriserende filosofie van de surrealisten uit de roaring twenties. (...) Hoofdzaak is de muziek en hoe die wordt uitgevoerd. Wat dat laatste betreft: de hoogste lof. (...) experimenteerdrift is ook in de eigentijdse muziek een groot goed.
