This spring, the graduation classes of Jazz and Word Art at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp will set up a unique collaboration with Danish master guitarist Jakob Bro (ECM). Starting from a selection of his own compositions Bro will join forces with ten young musicians.
Meanwhile six talents from the Word department will explore contemporary Danish poetry, under the direction of actor and producer Jurgen Delnaet.
Together they will create a brand new and breathtaking soundscape. Carefully crafted and set in a wide Danish horizon ...
