! CANCELED !
by Ine Vanoeveren
Virtual creations in the time of a pandemic. This is not the title of a new novel, but reality for most musicians and artists. The corona crisis has far-reaching consequences for the cultural sector. ‘Normal' concerts and projects were completely swept off the table. Time for creative solutions! During the lockdown, contemporary flautist Ine Vanoeveren searched for meaningful collaborations with composers from all over the world. Virtual creations offer a lot of advantages, but unfortunately also a whole range of frustrations: from slow internet connections to video recordings being interrupted by the cat: it is all part of ‘our new normal’.
But this has also been a very enriching period, with the creation of new pieces that would never have been developed otherwise. For the time being, these miniature works have only known a virtual creation, but during this lunch concert, they will finally be created in front of a live audience.
