Piano and taiko drum are both inherently associated with Western classical music and Japanese traditional music. From a complementarity Tsubasa Hori and Heleen Van Haegenborgh improvise a world where time and space are of secondary importance. Playing with unexpected colors and subtle placed sounds, in combination with the rhythmic drive of gongs, inside piano, reverberation, wires, rhythm, koto and piano strings.
As part of MADE IN MIRY, Hori and Van Haegenborgh worked for 2 days in MIRY Concert Hall (Ghent, Belgium) in November 2020. This interview was shot during their short but powerfull residency.
MADE IN MIRY is a project of MIRY Concertzaal and supported by Stad Gent & the Flemish Government.
