COLLAGE AT VILLAGE 2021
During the winter – spring ’21 and in full lockdown, Goeste Majeur in collaboration with comm’on, made music with an enthusiastic group of creative people. Each from his / her room and one by one at the micro.
The result was a series of 9 musical gems and beautiful images entitled ‘Collage au Village’.
The result pops up here and there in a travelling bird box through the neighbourhood De Brugse Poort.
Collage au Village looks for inspiration in the neighbourhood and converts this into a collective repertoire that we sing and play together. It goes from rap to new folk music, from Sephardic songs to trumpet playing. A mess of irregulars – everyone is welcome to join in – forms an orchestra with choir and stamps and blows away!
