The Sunrise

‘The Sunrise’ is the musical expression of the rising of the sun.

Martijn Vanbuel, Bert Hornix and Jan Verheyen found their inspiration in the rising of the sun, which every day again emerges from nowhere and through a diverse colour palette radiantly climbs into the sky. The musicians arranged the old church scales from dark to light and then composed colourful and diversified music, by which the bells of the tour carillon shine together with the bass, piano and percussion in a magnificent way.

The première of ‘The Sunrise’ will take place in 2021. The very first indoor performance is scheduled on Friday 12th March at the Dommelhof in Neerpelt, at 8 p.m. The first open- air performance will take place on Sunday 25th April on the site of the Herckenrode abbey in Hasselt from 6 a.m onwards. We hope we can play before a live audience!

Due to corona we were not allowed to play before a live audience on 12th March. But instead we streamed the concert, so you can watch in your living room every where in the world.



‘The Sunrise’ can be played outdoors, preferably in the early morning. Nature is our setting and we accompany the rising of the sun in a musical way. Thus reflecting about the wonder that repeats itself every day.   

Also an indoor performance of ‘The Sunrise’ is available. We then add a video-art-projection, to visually bring the sun into the house.

The project was developed thanks to the support of C-Takt and the non-profit organisation Musica. This project is still being developed. Audio and video material will follow in due course.
