“If my Complaints”
This is a live-audio-recording of a concert in Antwerpen in 2010 that I recently turned into a video, using a.o. details from ‘Metallic Pastel’-paintings by Georgine van Assche (my late mother) to visualize the expression of the music.
I call it a ‘Com-provisation’. It is based on Dowland’s song “If my Complaints”,here in a version for voice, viola, flute and clavichord. I performed this also solo (just me: voice and viola), also me with violin, and me with organ, … I can easily adapt it to add any kind of instrument(s). They can freely improvise within and according to the rules and restrictions that are set by me (the composed aspect of it) . At this particular occasion, it happened to be flute and clavichord.
Concept, voice and viola: Dominica Eyckmans Flute: Oriana Dierinck Clavichord: Jeroen Malaise
