The Reflets sonores (Sonic Reflects) festival organized by the Belgian Federation of Electroacoustic Music (FeBeME/BeFEM) offers three evenings of exceptional sound creation in an unusual heritage site that lends itself perfectly to listening and contemplation: the Glass Chapel of Fauquez , entirely decorated with marble.
With the acousmonium (24-speaker orchestra) installed on this occasion, you will be immersed in a varied sound experience: electroacoustic and acousmatic music, live electronics, Tibetan bowls/sound art, butō dance and interactive sound installations.
Transcultures is happy to renew this collaboration with this important partner for the development of open electro-acoustic music in Belgium, which was present in particular during the 2019-20 edition of the City Sonic festival (“Sonic Cinema” evening in Louvain-la -Neuve and Leo Kupper + guests in Wavre).
With : Isa*Belle + Paradise Now, Todor Todoroff, Joris De Laet, Stéphanie Laforce Charo Calvo, Raphaël Vens, Stéphanie Laforce, Didié Nietzsche, Virginie Viel, Brice Deloose, Wim Daeleman, Elisabeth Anderson, Victor Outters, Clément Parmentier, Tympocaïne 200, Laryssa Kim, Thibault Madeline, Jean-Pierre Jonckheere + Yuri Matsumaru/Butō, Jean-Louis Poliart Simon Lehmans, Daniel Perez Hajdu, Dirk Veulemans, Gérard Largepret…
