Since its creation in 1977, Brian Ferneyhough’s Time and motion Study II for singing cellist and two assistants has inspired many music-lovers worldwide. It is an extremely challenging piece in many different ways: one needs to develop appropriate technical abilities, both as a cellist and as a sound-engineer; the piece triggers quite some philosophical questions; the mere complexity of the musical material is overwhelming; etc  
After talking to musicologist Maarten Quanten, cellist Benjamin Glorieux had the idea of performing this piece with as many ‘authentic’ devices as possible. That would involve, for example, using tape-recorders instead of Macs…

Benjamin found an enthusiastic partner in audio-engineer Maarten Craeynest, and together they try to recreate this very particular universe. 

In Q-O2, they will simply develop all different aspects of this ‘authentic’ approach, and hope to present already part of the composition by the end of this residency.
