KLAAS COULEMBIER | H/PRO | FLUTE+MARIMBA |
This composition is based on a cocktail with two main ingredients that you usually do not expect together in one glass: whiskey (Gouden Carolus Single Malt, fired in the Molenberg) and beer (Lucifer, the Anker brewery). The recipe is from Andy de Mulder (aka Randall) who developed the cocktail on the occasion of a beer cocktail evening at the brewery Het Anker in Mechelen. The two ingredients seem incompatible, just as the flute and marimba have basically nothing to do with each other. Nevertheless, the combination delivers a distinct taste experience that cannot be compared to anything.
In The Devil’s Mill the flute and marimba start as two separate elements. They seem to play side by side and each has its own kind of music. They also each use a different full-scale scale so that they literally have no notes in common. Throughout the work the instruments grow towards each other, and sometimes they almost stand in each other's shoes.
The name of the whiskey, the Mill of the Devil, translates into a number of rotating musical motifs that regularly return. The mill that keeps on running is also expressed in the virtuoso nature and sometimes the diabolical pace. The musical interval of the devil (the tritonus or enlarged quarter) is also never far away throughout the work.
