Lit Scenes
Componist Jesse Passenier liet voor het project Lit Scenes zijn filmische muziek vertalen naar beeld. De muziek, gespeeld door Fluid Orchestra ft. Dudok Kwartet, vertolkt scènes uit de natuur, die staan voor diepere emoties en ervaringen. Deze rode draad wordt door de live visuals zichtbaar gemaakt.

With compositions for string quartet as well as compositions for octet, Passenier tells personal stories, using scenes from nature to symbolise human emotions. By collaborating with Anne Gentenaar, his musical ideas come to life in the world of moving images: an abstract wild life film is the result, all mixed live on stage.
The Suite LIT SCENES consists out of two parts, one of which is String Quartet No.1. This composition is performed by the renowned Dudok Quartet, part of The Fluid Orchestra in this production. This composition shows influences out of the jazz big band tradition and clear links to Ligeti, Bartók and Ravel.
In the second part of the Suite, the string quartet is joined by four other musicians, playing flute, Moog Synth played by EWI (electric wind driven instrument), piano and double bass. This part is filled to the brim with romance and lyrical melodies, packed in colourful harmonies and atmospheres, that are alternated with tense moments and vivid rhythms.
