The Artist's Music
Liesbeth Decrock (Ghent, 1990) holds a master’s degree in composition from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp with Wim Henderickx and Luc van Hove.
She participated several times in the SoundMine international composition training organized by vzw Musica in Neerpelt. In 2014, ‘Organic Explorations’ was selected on the basis of the internship, for a performance by deFilharmonie. In 2015 she collaborated with the oratorio class of Andrew Wise, for which she wrote two parts from a Stabat Mater.
A preference for chamber music and atypical line-ups appears in the compositions De Eekhoorn (2015) for clarinet, harp and double bass and I do not know and I really do not care (call sign: Iwein) (2016) for double bass and triple percussion. Her selective style is further characterized by intuition, contrasts and the urge to please.
In 2017 she has set up Het Incident, a collective with which she worked in varying collaborations with composers and performers to create her own energetic house style.
Compositions of Liesbeth Decrock were performed by ensembles and performers such as deFilharmonie, deCompagnie, Matthias Coppens, Bram Fournier, Andrew Wise, Nikolaas Kende and Het Incident conducted by Stijn Paredis.
