DEFIANT ANGELS

Iconoclasts Eric Sleichim and Marnix De Cat take on works from the Petrus Alamire Complex with the organ, saxophone and live electronics.

Marnix De Cat and Eric Sleichim have selected the six-part Angeli archangeli throni and various settings of the famous L’homme armé melody by Pierre de La Rue, Mathurin Forestier, Josquin des Prez and Jacob Obrecht from the complex of manuscripts created by Petrus Alamire (1470-1536). They attack these pieces with somewhat unusual instruments: organ, saxophone and live electronics, with which they dissect the polyphonic part writing and form.

Also on the programme: the creation of Eric Sleichim’s Defiant Angels, a new piece for organ and electronics which, like the tangle of entwined bodies in Frans Floris’s painting The Fall of the Rebel Angels, defies the laws of gravity.
