In 2008 the first glass-blown wind instruments were created by Charlotte Van Wouwe. Experienced musicians were asked to join the search fpr different the possibilities of these instruments. A few months later, the quartet had its first performanc- es in Ghent.

The research continued and, after an intense period of improvisation, Charlotte mapped the possibilities of the instruments and handed them out to two composers. They both wrote a composition, each with a different angle and vocabulary. Due to the need to enrich the audio colour palette, new instruments for two people,oneblowerandonevoice,havebeencreated. Thisdou- ble use of the instrument creates an extra dimension of intimate space. The breath of both players is interconnected and each one influences the other. The performers move in space, take distance, come closer to each other and therefore create therefore a visual-spacial equivalent to the musical effect that they are producing.

Charlotte Van Wouwe, * 1988 in Gent, studied Visual Arts at the High School for Science and Art in Sint-Lucas Gent
