“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.”

At the start of our Christmas with Messiaen festival, the award-winning organist Geerten van de Wetering performs the impressive organ cycle La Nativité du Seigneur. Messiaen possessed the gift of synaesthesia: with every timbre and chord he saw a matching colour. The colour spectrum of his music comes to life with video projections on the organ for which Marcel Wierckx has built an ingenious video installation. A hallucinatory experience in sound and vision. In the monumental Kloosterkerk.
