Van Haeghenborgh, Heleen 




Heleen Van Haegenborgh (1980) is a pianist, composer, and improviser. She studied piano with Claude Coppens and Daan Vandewalle at the conservatory of Ghent, and composition at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. Improvisation became an essential medium for mutual understanding in collaborations with musicians from genres other than classical music. One of these early collaborations includes a project with electronic composer Esther Venrooy (Mock Interiors,Entr'acte). In 2013 she released Signaux, a six-part composition for piano and foghorns, which she turned turned into a musical instrument, providing a counter-voice for her (inside) piano. Since 2015, Van Haegenborgh has been working with jazz pianist Christian Mendoza as a duo, releasing the album Copper in 2017. In the same year, she wrote Index for the period instruments of the Icelandic ensemble Nordic Affect and built a ‘listening scale model’ together with Nu Architects for Concertgebouw Brugge.
Creating, composing, improvising, and performing merge together in the artistic output of Van Haegenborgh. Keywords are: Strings, wires, experiment, inside piano, electronics, foghorns.
