Online, ,

Nadar Ensemble and Musica invite you to participate in this online musical encounter around the musical piece 'Point Ones' by Alexander Schubert! Everyone is welcome to join this Zoom session where you will be treated to a free live performance by Nadar Ensemble, broadcast by Musica, from Dommelhof in Pelt. You don't have to register - participating is just a click away!

This Schubert - no relation to Franz - loves free jazz, techno and rock music. In his composition ‘Point Ones’ - with a striking role for drums and electric guitar - the conductor has every difficulty in keeping both the ensemble and an electronic shadow orchestra under control. Point Ones' is an energy bomb, right up the Nadar Ensemble's street, which De Standaard calls 'Flanders' most adventurous formation'.

The streaming runs from 2 to 3 pm and can be followed via this link:
