Wave Field Synthesis

Routes du son

Open doors ° Sunday 30 June ° Ongoing from 10.00 to 18.00
Erekoer, Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, Kasteelstraat 6, 3740 Bilzen

He who enters the world of Routes du son, finds himself in the middle of a square consisting of 192 loudspeakers. This is the instrument of the composer of immersive music. The sounds do not only move within the surface of the loudspeaker but also outside it, if desired, up to kilometers away. The technique is called wave field synthesis, which creates possibilities for new and existing music.

There are works presented by artists from distant regions who have created their music in Europe, such as the Korean composer Ji Youn Kang and the Iranian composer Siamak Anvari. Also a special version of Luigi Nono's La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura will be performed, with live electronics and wavefield synthesis by Wouter Snoei and Barbara Lüneburg on violin.
