I SOLISTI ACADEMY
With I SOLISTI ACADEMY we guide the stars of tomorrow already today. We address different target groups, like exceptionally gifted teenagers, preprofessionals or young composers who are trying to find their way. We offer each of them a tailor-made path.
Composing on visuals
Mo 19 → Sa 24 August 2019
I SOLISTI Composers Lab gives composers the opportunity to experiment with writing music for visual media. In 2019 the challenge is animation film.
We explore the work of audiovisual artist Sam Billen, who graduated in 2017 at LUCA School of Arts, C-mine Genk. With the most experienced composers George De Decker and Frederik Neyrinck as your coaches and the musicians and the other participating composers as your sounding board, you write your own soundtrack, which will be created by the musicians of I SOLISTI at a public concert by the end of the week. During the week you also get full cooperation with the ensemble to get your work in progress just right.

Tailor-made course for talented teenagers
Audition in October 2018 in Lier or Kortrijk
I SOLISTI wants to encourage musically gifted teenagers by stimulating them to develop their full potential. The young adults will go through a process tailored to their needs, along with their surroundings (parents, art teachers,…). Under the guidance of their musical godfather or godmother, the teenagers will write their own uninhibited story. I SOLISTI provides musical and artistical coaching, as well as organizational support.
Auditions take place on an annual basis. As places are limited, we ask for a verification of their talent and we expect that both the students and their parents will show a high level of commitment.
