Sounding City: Public Sound

April 27, 2012 § 3 Comments

The final presentation of the first two year-phase of Resonance, before continuing for (at least) another two years with a new series of commissioned works of sound art by European artists, will be part of this year’s Sounding City, the sound-art-music program of the yearly Festival van Vlaanderen (Festival of Flanders) in Kortijk, Belgium.

Alongside works by Chris Watson, Jana Winderen, Christoph de Boeck & Patricia Portela, Leif Brush, Guy de Bièvre & Sofie von Bustorff, Erik Nerinckx, Alvin Curran, Dawn Scarfe, David Helbich and Bent Sørensen, the 2012 edition of Sounding City will present installations by Stefan Rummel (the Kortrijk installment of his Resonance work Articulated Chambers) and Evelina Deicmane.

This year’s edition of the Festival of Flanders’ Sounding City focuses on the relationship between sound and the public space. It opens on Saturday April 28th, with a guided tour, starting at 16h from the Budascoop, Kapucijnenstraat 10.

The Sounding City sound art works can be experienced in Kortrijk on Saturdays and Sundays, until Sunday May 13th.
For details, see the Sounding City web pages.

    Appreciation to Guy, Sofia, Johan and their friends,
    the Kortrijk Windribbon V.2 lives on.
    Looks as though it will go to the Klankenbos (Sound Forest)
    as a permanent item, probably somewhere in 2013.
    Thus, the Kortrijk windribbon is running realtime on web;
    lacking a player, VLC is a free download…
    (open the link, a small file with the name
    windribbon.m3u downsloads on your desktop, double-click this VLC)

    thanks to everyone for their eyes and ears, leif BRUSH
