HERMESensemble & Catalina Vicens

The widely acclaimed musician Catalina Vincens, video artist Kurt D’Haeseleer and HERMESensemble are joining forces in Moira, a project that bears the name of the ancient Greek goddess of fate. The starting point is the famous fourteenth-century Apocalypse Tapestry at the Château d’Angers. Fragments of the tapestry are transformed into video art which, in turn, connects new music by Daan Janssens to the music of composers such as Orlandus Lassus.
