We’re looking for composers to create musical pieces inspired by the Ghent Altarpiece, and how the ancient biblical story, retold in this painting over 600 years ago, speaks to us today. These recorded pieces will set the atmosphere for the exhibition, played back through a sound installation that guides visitors through the labyrinth. We’re also looking for compositions for live performance outside the exhibition. These unique performances will interact with the themes of the Ghent Altarpiece and have the scope to incorporate other artistic disciplines such as dance. Lyrical content in these pieces will be welcomed.
God’s story transcends history, and we want to allude to that as we combine instrumental and compositional elements from different eras and cultures. No matter what genres you work in - whether EDM, hip hop, choral, orchestral, pop, flamenco, rock, avant-garde, sound collage, folk, metal, musical theatre, reggae, jazz - we’d especially love to work together. If you’re excited about collaboration between composers and musicians across genres and interested in the challenge of making something uniquely new, then we’d love for you to join us.
