14 June, 2011 in programs

ABP 2009:
20:40 – 21:00 GMT RAVEL – Free Networks
Live from Antwerp

( Antwerp – Ward Weis )

MUHKA ( Museum for contemporary art of Antwerp ) hosts the ART’S BIRTHDAY PARTY this year.

Students SOUNDDESIGN of the Royal Academy for fine arts of Antwerp create a sonic environment with sounds they have catalogued as SAVE and NOT SAVE. They are randomised through a multi-speaker installation in which a monotone voice reads their description as a slow soft litany.

A multi-monitor version of The virtual listening project” by Floris Van Manen will be projected on the white walls of the museum.

Live sounds from in and around the musuem are processed by PURE DATA structures.

Additional acoustic snapshots of other performances ( State of the arts – by Jef Lambrecht ), live music ( noise-group Spasm ), DJ-ing, . in the museum are mixed as fragments in the live stream.

The Verdi & Ravel streams will be audible at different spots in the museum.

EBU Art’s Birthday 2008- Antwerp

“ Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing ? ” – Richard Hamilton

EBU ABP 2008
17th of January 2008
20:30 – 21:00 GMT
Live from Antwerpen (Belgium)

ART’S BIRTHDAY 2008 from Antwerp will be performed by the students “ sounddesign “ of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp. Their project is coordinated and supervised by Ward Weis.

We are inspired by the collage “ Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing ? ” of Richard Hamilton.

Our contribution for ART’S BIRTHDAY 2008 is a sound-collage with the element(s) the students took out of a postcard they selected by their own choice. Those elements are the basic material for the live performance / laptop concert as part of the ART’S BIRTHDAY party we have in the WINTER GARDEN of the Royal Academy.

Each makes an acoustic version of their postcard.

Those soundcards are played as the main part in the jam-session.

The original sounds will be available for all the ART’S BIRTHDAY events on the website we make that evening on-line at

The contributors are:

Domenico Alluigi
Muriel Claeys
Rob Kanters
Jonathan Karsilo
Iris Roevens
Koen Roggen
Dominique T’ Jolle
Piotr Talmachou
