On September 19th, 2015, on the occasion of the European Heritage Days and the season opening night of BOZAR / Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles (Brussels, Belgium), La Chambre aux échos moved into the Art Nouveau building, created by famous architect Victor Horta, for a very special interdisciplinary evening.

Along with other ensembles and artists, we were on site from 7 pm to 11.30 pm, in various spaces, with our accomplices from Secession Orchestra, singers Sayuri Araida and Marianne Seleskovitch, and our team of composer/DJs The Echo Makers (Davor B. Vincze and Remmy Canedo), to create a galaxy of events ranging from instrumental and vocal solos to a big-scale orchestra concert with electro remix in the Salle Henry Le Bœuf (Transgressions program at 10 pm). A total of 10 different programs, ranging from 10′ to 100′, from 1 musician to 24, thirty different composers played from Purcell to Saariaho.

As a tribute to Horta’s project of a ‘house of culture’, echoing also BOZAR’s current eclectic programming, and faithful to our own principles, we offered new live approaches to music in the form of concerts and happenings, based on the modern and contemporary repertoire characteristic of our collective’s identity –from Wagner to Kurtág–, also visiting the realm of cinema in a tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s art of restoring classical music to its original suggestive power.
