Belgian Encounter of Electroacoustic Music
BOEM (pronounced "boom") stands for ‘Belgian Encounter of Electroacoustic Music’ and will be holding its 3rd edition this year. The name refers to a musical encounter between composers, but also between the audience and the music.
For this edition, BOEM collaborates with ARTICULATE and will occupy for two days the Muziekstudio of DE SINGEL.
Sunday 16 October, 19:00
BOEM - Pioneer Concert
On Sunday evening, the ARTICULATE days open with the Pioneer Concert.
Work created in Belgium in the early years of electronic music is brought out of the archives and presented and spatialised in a way that has never been done before!
__20:00: Pioneer compositions of Raoul De Smet, Lucien Goethals, Henry Pousseur, Arsène Souffriau, Herman Van San (with visual work by Greet Martens) and Leo Küpper
Monday 17 October, 19:00 & 21:00
BOEM - Double Concert
The ‘BOEM - Pioneer Concert’ on Sunday is an excellent introduction to the BOEM contemporary encounter on Monday night.
The emphasis lies on composed music on audio support and on the spatial reproduction thereof. For this purpose, a 24-channel surround loudspeaker system is set up, also known as ‘acousmonium’.
Music by 14 composers, who will also be present, will be played and most of them will spatialize their work during two concerts, at 19:00 and at 21:00.
Contributions by Gildas Bouchaud, Moniek Darge, Joris De Laet, Philippe Druez, Stephan Dunkelman, Umut Eldem, Ann Eysermans, Jean-Pierre Jonckheere, Stéphanie Laforce, Kristof Lauwers, Thibault Madeline, Victor Outters, Jean-Louis Poliart, and Dirk Veulemans.
BOEM is made possible thanks to the collaboration between the composers' associations ComAV and FeBeME-BeFEM, the hospitable support of ARTICULATE and the support of Sabam for Culture.
