A solo violin performance based on pieces inspired by Swiss art brut visionary Adolphe Wölfli, upon whom Baudouin de Jaer based his 2011 Sub Rosa release The heavenly ladder.

The artist describes this work as “braided marches”: indeed it seems that Adolf Wölfli copied scores from a book adapting marches for four-handed piano, yet distancing them from their original model with his own approach.

Baudouin de Jaer and his violin will showcase “contemporary music with a unique counterpoint perspective”.

Baudouin de Jaer

Composer, violinist, Baudouin de Jaer (Be) studied composition with Philippe Boesmans, Henri Pousseur, Frederic Rzewski also with Bruce Mather at Mc Gill University of Montreal.

His path connects him permanently to the fire of Earth and cosmos motion. Fascinated by the huge antennas which keeps on probing the sounds of the universe, he draws his music, before writing it, on vast plans where planets line up and rotate, while searching the ground, turning it upside down like a real farmer or surveying it looking for instruments echoing in unison.
