The work of Bach and Escher, geniuses from different centuries and art forms, has many points of contact. Both work with certain basic motifs, with symmetry, repetition, mirroring and sequences, on which they vary, sometimes simply, sometimes infinitely complex interweaving, adding new dimensions. Bach's varied canons and fugues are the most complex and inventive examples in the history of polyphonic composition (polyphony). By Escher, his tessellation motifs, "metamorphoses" and "cycles", among others, will be shown and discussed. In this 'concert-art experience', the processes of listening and watching will be merged into one surprising and enriching experience for the audience, which will appeal to both concertgoers, more and less experienced, and more visually oriented art viewers.

From the Bach & Escher project will also be a video recording, which will be shared on the YouTube channel of Heliosfero.
