“I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colors for those who see none.”

The award winning organist Geerten van de Wetering performs Messiaen’s organ cycle La Nativité du Seigneur. His performance is accompanied by spectacular projections on his organ. They show the colours that Messiaen composed in his music. He possessed the gift of synaesthesia: for every timbre and chord he saw a matching colour. To bring the colour spectrum of his music to life, Marcel Wierckx built an ingenious video installation. A hallucinatory experience, in sound and image. In the monumental Kloosterkerk.
