Kris Defoort Diving Poet Society

In Kris Defoort’s Diving Poet Society two brilliant musicians join the heart of the Kris Defoort trio into a new musical adventure. Together they explore fresh compositions injected by the inspiring poems of Peter Verhelst, a unique, stubborn writer embracing life with all its dark mysteries. Balancing between improvisations, composed material & instant orchestration, it is the eternal search for this one magical, unknown moment. Five musical poets communicating the joy of diving into an ocean of unlimited colours, words & sounds...

Veronika Harcsa (voice) Guillaume Orti (saxophone) + Kris Defoort (piano) Nicolas Thys (bass) Lander Gyselinck (drums)

“Defoort wikkelt haar stem in nieuwe betoverende muziek, die nog altijd een scherp, avontuurlijk kantje heeft.” De Standaard

“Kris est quasi minimaliste au piano, ostinato sur la première moste, quelques accords et ébauches harmoniques ensuite, Nicolas impose joliment la rythmique, Lander est tourjours surprenant. Ce sont Veronika et Guillaume qui forment les mélodies. Elle parle, récite, chante, vocalise, scatte, il l’accompagne en parfaite osmose.” Le Soir
