Book of Air VVolk


Eighteen improvisers with roots in jazz and classical music headed up by Bert and Stijn Cools (collectively known as Granvat) explore how time and space influence our perception of music. Can time be stretched, so that we listen to music as if looking through a microscope? Can the place and position from which we are listening – lying on a church floor – fundamentally colour the music? These are new territories that vvolk explores through improvisation in an intimate journey based on the principle of ‘slow music’.
