Musing on Music
Brussels Jazz Orchestra's wish for 2021

Brussels Jazz Orchestra waves 2020 goodbye with ‘Musing on Music’, an animation project with drawings by Tim Acke and music by Frank Vaganée. This wonderful video expresses the orchestra’s wish for the new year, with cameos from all the musicians.

"Music was replaced by silence"
2020 is both a year to forget about quickly and a year we will never forget. Many have suffered, many have lost loved ones. The cultural sector had a hard time. BJO activities came to a halt abruptly. Silence replaced music. But here’s 2021, eager to start. With impatience and great expectations, we look forward to a new year in which everyone can once again share their passions and bottled up creativity.
- Frank Vaganée.

"For years, I wanted to combine music and drawing"
First and foremost, I’m a professional musician, saxophone player and big band conductor for over twenty years. For years, I’ve been looking for a way to bring music and drawing together. The fact that I’ve been able to do that with a collaboration with one of my favourite jazz orchestras, is fantastic. I’m very grateful for this assignment!
- Tim Acke.
May 2021 be a healthy year
in which everyone can experience their passions to the fullest.
