Het BlokfluitAsiel

Het BlokfluitAsiel is a collaboration between instrument builder Lukas De Clerck, composer Angélica Castelló and music teachers Katelijne Lanneau and Matthias Verniers. Their pupils (recorders from the music academy of Jette/Brussels and organists from the music academy of the DG, department St.Vith) were invited to explore their own creative approaches to sound, improvisation, composition and performance.

The musical piece was composed collectively, based on a concept by Angélica Castelló, aiming to establish a profound connection between Lukas de Clerck’s piece/machine AirBag/14Holes, the organ and recorders.

AirBag/14Holes consists of a large central air cushion with 14 bulging cones and constant air flow, activating the BlokfluitAsiel, a collection of abandoned, unused recorder flutes donated for the project.

Recorded live at the church of Sint-Agatha-Berchem, Brussels, on September 11, 2021.

Recorded and mixed by Lukas De Clerck.
Mastering by Giuseppe Ielasi.

Mönschter is an electroacoustic piece by Angélica Castelló, drawing inspiration from the atmospheres cultivated during the work on Het BlokfluitAsiel. The young artists involved in this project often likened the immense sound they collectively generated to that of a gentle monster.

Mastering by Giuseppe Ielasi.
