Eric Sleichim & Marnix De Cat

Defiant angels

Encounter polyphony as you have never heard it before in an astonishing dialogue between organist Marnix De Cat and the saxophone of BL!NDMAN frontman Eric Sleichim. The cathedrals monumental Metzler organ simply melts into the sweetness of Adolphe Sax invention. The two partners in crime selected the six-part Angeli archangeli throni by Heinrich Isaac and various settings of the Lhomme armé melody by Pierre de La Rue, Mathurin Forestier, Josquin des Prez and Jacob Obrecht from the Petrus Alamire corpus. They set about these pieces with unusual instrumentation (prepare yourself for spectacular live electronics) which they use to dissect the polyphonic part writing and form. Eric Sleichim has written Defiant Angels especially for the occasion. Like Frans Floris painting The Fall of the Rebel Angels, with its tangle of entwined bodies, it is a piece that defies the laws of gravity.
