Katrien Verfaillie, a pianist based in Ghent (Belgium), started composing intuitively in 2008, the day after her father died. He used to call her ‘duifje’, little dove, hence the artist’s name: Pigeon.
Her intuitive approach to playing the piano with the story literally springing from her fingers, is very moving in its simplicity. Each note, timbre, every feeling is part of a larger puzzle. Piano music somewhere in the free space between minimal and Chopin, but with an impressive eloquence that has an immediate appeal.
Katrien herself is being coached by cabaret performer Raf Walschaerts
