Flat Earth Society, the mammoth (15-piece) Belgian juggernaut unleashes jazz of unrivaled spirit and verve. Wildly innovative, complex, and incendiary but as tight as a fine classical orchestra. Think Vienna Art Orchestra, or Willem Breuker Kollektief. Think: once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The music of FES, which incorporates both composition and liberating improvisation, is 95% homemade. Streaks of music of other composers are used as inspiration, frequently arranged, adapted and integrated into FES compositions, adding a wide range of atmospheres and styles to the eclectic FES universe. FES, who dares to flirt with other disciplines as theatre and film and owns the ability to seduce a number of different audiences, from more select jazz listeners to a wild young rock public, is at its best live on stage.
FES was founded in 1998, when no-nonsense artist, former architect, clarinetist, saxophonist, keyboard player, composer and producer Peter Vermeersch, wanted to explore new horizons. Find out more about this unique ensemble : https://fes.be/indexEN.html
