What You See Is What You Hear is a concert given by Wim Mertens in Antwerp on September 30, 2005 in De Roma, the almost completely restored pre-war cinema in Borgerhout. In this special venue, he performs with a classic string twist and a hexagonal choir for an unusual and surprising journey through the unique oeuvre that has been for more than 25 years and has a wide and loyal audience. The Roma had been sold out for the occasion, but that is not uncommon, because Wim Mertens concerts in Flanders are always sold out.

The Wim Mertens Ensemble as the company calls that night gathers the Roma audience, a beautiful mix of young and old, men and women, pop and classical lovers, not exclusively at a concert in which Mertens' piano music and the Occasionally added strings play an important role, but once again the vocal work of the master is prominent in the sun. The two sopranoes, two mezzo sopranoes and two alts, all women with a conservatory course, seem to work effortlessly through the not so easy and evident vocal parties of Wim Mertens, an oeuvre that is not built with words but mostly with sounds.

The recording of the concert is perfect. Multiple cameras have been used and the whole course has been neatly depicted in a scenario: no irregularities in image exchange, no surprise to the musicians, perfect inserts and precise close ups at the right time, everything as it should be done professionally and with taste . The sound is in stereo and 5.1, .

There are 16 strong compositions on the repertoire. Wim Mertens sings & plays piano, a hexagonal choir and a five-pointed string quartet to provide the charm, the emotion, the atmosphere, the fireworks & of course the accompaniment. Fans do not have to be convinced
