Project Information
  Concept: Koen Maes; Compositions: Dieter Limbourg, Lode Mertens, Bert Joris, Michel Herr, Bart Van Caenegem, Pierre Drevet; Story & art: Philip Paquet
  Music, Visual Arts
  Graphicology brings together big band jazz and graphic novel. Graphic novelist Philip Paquet — a jazz lover — selected some existing stories and thought up two new ones. Six composers wrote an accompanying soundtrack. The result is a 'visual jazz score': the stories have been edited into original videos projected on a large screen, while the Brussels Jazz Orchestra performs live the soundtrack to the images.

Paquet scores his graphic novels around the world. His album "Louis Armstrong" is known as far as Singapore. The result of this collaboration can be described as a 'visual jazz score'. Graphicology is a combination of visual arts and music, where graphic novel meets live jazz, demonstrating the strength in the merging of these two art forms.
