As a singer and composer, Susanne Abbuehl’s work revolves around sculpting sound in time. She studied jazz and classical singing as well as Indian singing, and has always been interested in composing for and with poetry. Her music for the work of poets like E. E. Cummings (on «April»), James Joyce and William Carlos Williams (on «Compass») and Emily Dickinson (on «The Gift») creates an environment in which the words can move freely, and in which the subtext is revealed. In longtime musical partnerships with pianist Wolfert Brederode and flugelhorn player Matthieu Michel she continues to explore sound in space from every angle.

Workshop: From Meditation to Art
13:00 - 14:00
From Meditation to Art (specifically in painting)
What images could represent mindfulness meditation and the transformations it creates when practiced? How to put into form the meeting with one's own spirit, the face-to-face interaction with one's emotions? How to paint consciousness, the heart, silence, and the wanderings of the mind? How to represent this very intimate experience, invisible to the eye, that is the full experience of one's self enabled by the practice of meditation?
This studio will raise the question of representation of meditation and will offer a promenade through the history of art. Through a selection of classic and contemporary works, from Jérôme Bosch to Mark Rothko, from ancient art to street art, Soizic Michelot will guide a complete immersion in the universe of meditative practice.
