Projects and Bands



In partnership between De Centrale and MSK (Museum of Fin Arts Gent), Shalan Alhamwy and Ehsan Yadollahi compose music inspired by ten masterpieces of the collection of the museum.

The music will be recorded in 2018 into a CD as a musical audio guide of these works.

Musicians of different backgrounds and nationalities are invited to take part in the recording sessions, melding the different styles together.



This is a journey through our dreams and imaginations. A new experience for the performers and audience to hear each-other's story. Making the music more expressive by visualizing it via visual art. The whole performance is an improvisation expressing my own feelings at the moment. The visual artist illustrates the thoughts according to her own observations. The idea is to promote the art of improvisation, being at the moment of now, being honest with yourself, and open to share stories. Integration is another concept considered in this performance. To show there are no borders, boundaries, and limitations to understand each other and get connected, if everyone tells the truth.
