In the run-up to the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam, young string quartets worked in a residency program with a group of blind amateur singers. They looked for the common and the different: sensing and inspiring each other, indicating where your boundaries lie and still moving forward together.

Trust Me is the title of two programs that the Dutch Belinfante Quartet and the Belgian-Polish Karski Quartet developed with blind amateur singers. Composer Matijs de Roo wrote a piece that brings both groups together in a new sound world: a sensational conclusion to a collaboration that lasted a year and a half. Koninklijke Visio, the expertise center for visually impaired and blind people, was closely involved in the development.
