Kris Defoort Diving Poet Society

In Kris Defoort 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...

The Woman Who Walked into Doors

2010

As a composer

Label: Fuga Libera

Before publishing other aspects of his personality – jazz, instrumental compositions – here is the opera which revealed Kris Defoort to the public: created in 2001, The Woman Who Walked into Doors has been staged over fifty times in Europe. This strong and poignant work, inspired by the Irish novelist Roddy Doyle, gives universal meaning to a social drama on the fringes of society. Mixing storytelling and song, classical, contemporary, pop and jazz music (with the Prometheus Chamber Orchestra and Dreamtime jazz ensemble), the music leads its own life and by this successful fusion and its lucidity, leads us into the heart of the story’s emotions. Art at its best.
