During Parcoeur, young people from music academies take young and old with them. They surprise with quirky performances of existing work, their own compositions and experiments with new technology.
Image and sound, it is a symbiosis that can no longer be ignored in our daily lives. This sixth edition of Parcoeur focuses on the theme of "video".
Students from various DKO classes create new music under both existing and self-created film images. A Parcoeur philosopher will take you on a trail throughout the building to discover the performances and installations.
Whether you're a fan of cinematography, new music, or just looking for an inspiring experience, this Parcoeur offers a dynamic mix of creativity and imagination anyway. Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of sound and image, showcasing both visual and aural stories!
MATRIX [Center for New Music] keeps its finger on the pulse of contemporary music. Like the culture and ecosystem we live in, that musical landscape is constantly changing. And they move with it.
As passionate collectors and scholars, they chart what exists. Together with KU Leuven, MATRIX manages an extensive library of scores and written sources on music since 1950. In addition, they reflect on the meaning of music as a contemporary art form. They disclose these insights through publications and (web) exhibitions. Music from Flanders forms the core of their collection and research, but equal attention is paid to the international context.
As explorers and inventors, they explore the potential of contemporary music within a music educational context. Music teachers, musicians, researchers, concert organizers and interested enthusiasts can turn to MATRIX in their search for information and educational frameworks. The blog WEERKLANK is an important exchange platform in this regard.
MATRIX maintains strong ties with the international new-music field as the Flemish branch of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM).
