Five parts will be musically explored and performed as part of a preparatory project for the musical theatre INNER LIFE, which will premiere in September 2024. INNER LIFE is as much a composition as an alchemical formula – or a game. It is a recipe for an artistic experiment in which all possible musical personalities and groups can participate.

The score is partly through-composed, partly open-ended. Precisely notated in some places, graphically rendered in others. The piece is ‘web-structured’: on the one hand, it consists of musical objects – some melodic, some timbral in nature, some concrete, others aleatory. On the other hand, various ‘performance strategies’ or paths are suggested.

Wim Henderickx was still fully engaged in the composition and finishing of INNER LIFE when he passed away suddenly at the end of 2022. Through musical exploration, HERMESensemble and Nemᴓ ensemble work step by step towards a creation.
