Time capsule 

A look back at Time capsule Turangalîla

The participation project Time Capsule Turangalîla is now complete.

Over the course of three workshop days during the Easter holidays, 16 participants aged 8 to 72 from all corners of the world made music together under the direction of Osama Abdulrasol and Hilde De Clerck. The musicians were inspired by the Turangalîla Symphony, a work larger than life by Messiaen.

Nobody knew beforehand what the final result would be, but on Wednesday 3 May, the participants proudly showed their beautiful performance to the audience of a sold-out chamber music hall in Concertgebouw Brugge. This performance was an intense and beautiful experience. The beautiful aftermovie will appear online soon!

On Friday 5 May, the participants went together to watch the Turangalîla Symphony, performed by Brussels Philharmonic & Kazushi Ono.

Many thanks to all participants, musicians and attendees!

Time capsule Turangalîla is a collaboration between Musica Impulscentrum and Concertgebouw Brugge, in the framework of Sounds Now, co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
