TABARNACK: Six musicians swimming in an ocean of music, influenced by a thousand tunes and a thousand things … a free-music collective lead by Joris Buysse & Thomas Noël. In changing configurations Tabarnack! brings you purely improvised music, sometimes in co-relation with visual artists such as photographers, vj’s, filmmakers, action-painters, dancers, etc. TABARNACK has recently been touring with the creation ‘An Eye for an Ear’, a concept-performance with artists from many different disciplines. Photographers, video artists, dancers etc. write stories or ‘scores’ in their individual languages and the Tabarnack-ensemble performs these pieces live and on the spot, without prior viewing. The latest experiment, called BOXART was a symbyosis between musicians and boxers. This performance took place in De Centrale in Ghent in april 2010.
