19-03-2014 – Conférence – Philippe Franck : Other resonances – an introduction to sound art

Louvain-la-Neuve > PointCulture > 18:00

What are the roots of the sound art that cross disciplines? What are the main features of these forms and adventurous sound practices? How does site specific audio creation dialogue with the urban space? How does it develop? What are the possibilities and these pitfalls? These are some questions and issues that Philippe Franck (Transcultures, le manège.mons, curator of Resonances) bring light to stimulate critical thinking and discussion. After an introduction to the genesis of the sound art through the avant-gardes of the twentieth century and some great pioneering figures practices, Philippe Franck will also discuss his experience and approach of curator/ founder of the international sound art festival City Sonic illustrating these remarks with many video and audio examples.

in the framework of Résonances – les arts sonores en Brabant Wallon & Médiathème, in collaboration with le PointCulture de Louvain-la-Neuve, IAD, Institut des Arts de Diffusion et UCL Culture
