About

"Vincent and Me" is a new media choral concert jointly curated by the Netherlands Chamber Choir and the Italian audio-visual studio fuse*. Through the paintings of two iconic artists, Vincent van Gogh and Gustav Klimt, as well as the masterpieces of contemporary composers such as Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Mahler, and others, it applies painting algorithms and biometric data to connect the visual and sound, and the emotions of the artists and the audience, creating a full-sensory audio-visual experience that immerses the audience back to Europe in the late 19th century. The performance is centered around 13 works by composers of the same era as Van Gogh and Klimt: the works of Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Satie, Mahler, Strauss, Schoenberg, and others, creating a dialogue with the works of the two great artists and their historical backgrounds. In this performance, the audience is both a listener and a participant: the paintings become audible, and the music becomes visible. The show will be performed live by the Netherlands Chamber Choir, led by Peter Dijkstra, who has won the German Echo Klassik twice, the French Golden Diapason, and was nominated for Grammy Award. He will lead the choir, which has a history of more than 80 years and has recorded more than 75 albums.
