Formed in 2015 by harpsichordist Lisa Kokwenda Schweiger and percussionist Jacob Vanneste, Two Envelopes fuses adventurous combinations of performative elements or electronics, whilst retaining a classical core.
Lisa works in the fields of early and contemporary music and physical theatre. Jacob immerses himself in contemporary and electronic music and has always been driven by a huge interest in performative musical theatre and soundart. As Two Envelopes they play compositions that have been commissioned especially for their mix of expressive skills as well repertoire by G. Aperghis, K.H. Essl, T. De Mey etc.
In 2015 the duo was selected as ‘International Young Artist’ by Musica, for whom they made their own creation ‘Alamento’.
Past highlights include performances at Amuz Antwerpen, Wilde Westen Kortrijk, Orgelpark Amsterdam, Les Ateliers Claus Brussels, Q-O2 Brussels and Mute festival Ghent, Klangforum Heidelberg, Klangbrücke Aachen among other international venues and events.
