‘SHARING MUSES’


A new kind of program where paintings and live music meet and ‘share muses’


Initial test for a new type of live theater program involving musical performance – instrumental, voice, choral, etc. – interacting with the great masterpieces from the world of painting brought to life by exploring hitherto impossible levels of detail, as well as simple animation and special effects.
All genres of music and painting can be explored, and all types of interaction can be used, incorporating props, actors, dancers, and even audience participation.
This combination of worlds will explore the shared emotional and conceptual journeys behind the otherwise seemingly disparate spheres of music and visual art, and help expand the viewer’s appreciation of both.
 – The music used in this test is Erbarme dich by Johann Sebastian Bach as beautifully interpreted by Damien Guillon (Voice) and Philippe Herreweghe (Conductor)
