MOLECULE

an interdisciplinary creation project between young visual artists and composers

MOLECULE is a collaboration project between young composers from the Royal Conservatory Antwerp and visual artists from HISK (Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten) Ghent, together with the musicians of BL!NDMAN.

During a period of one year, each composer will be working with one visual artist from HISK to create an artwork together. The music will be performed by one of BL!NDMAN’s [sax], [drums], [strings] or [hybrid] musicians. MOLECULE is open to different musical genres: contemporary music, rock, pop, jazz, electronic music, .., as well written as improvised.

MOLECULE is an experimental development project. The focus is on the interdisciplinary co-creation process, more than an output platform for a finished ‘art product’. By starting together from a blank page, two artists from different disciplines get an insider view in each other’s logic of creation and join forces to come to a new piece of art. One discipline can’t be subject to the other, which requires a continuous dialogue. By working together towards a public presentation, the artists get confronted with possibilities, challenges and limitations they would not meet in the daily reality of their own artistic practice. The objective is to create new artworks in which all disciplines are treated equally.

The project is embedded in the educational program of the post graduate visual arts institute HISK, and the master composition Royal Conservatory Antwerp, in collaboration with BL!NDMAN ensemble.
