SWEET SPOT – music for loudspeakers
05/05/2018 - 20:30 (doors 20:00)

entry: 5 eur

with music by :  Else Marie Pade (DK), Ingrid Drese (BE), Adrien Glineur (BE), Sophie Delafontaine (CH), and Doron Sadja (US)


The new concert series SWEET SPOT proposes a varied program of acousmatic and electro-acoustic music from local and international composers. A setup of more than 30 loudspeakers creates an immersive listening environment and invites the audience to open the ears to 360 degrees.


The first part of this concert is dedicated to a series of acousmatic pieces by Ingrid Drese, Adrien Glineur, Sophie Delafontaine, and to the pioneer Else Marie Pade.


Else Marie Pade, born in 1924, is the first Danish composer of electronic music. Her biography is as fascinating as her music. She was both influenced by the French “musique concrète” and the serial electronic music coming from Cologne. We will present her work Faust (1962), an electronic suite, divided into 5 movements. In this work she uses both concrete and electronically generated sounds. Faust was originally a commission from the Danish radio as background music for a radio play production of Goethe’s Faust, but stands alone as a pioneering masterpiece.


The second part of this concert evening is dedicated to a live-set by Doron Sadja, who will be in residency at Q-O2. He is working primarily with multichannel spatialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments, Sadja creates post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture.
