Tuned City Brussels: Lecture-event #1 (Carsten Stabenow, Lamberto Tronchin, Ariane Wilson, Luc Deleu, Justin Bennett)
12/02/2013 - 19:00 - free entrance

Tuned City is a research platform from Berlin that creates a dialogue between the worlds of architecture, city planning and sound art, trying to use the possibilities of the spatial and communicative properties of sound as an instrument in artistic and urban practices.

Q-O2 invites Tuned City to Brussels in 2013. The aim is studying the given urban and architectural situation, and experiencing and evaluating the city from an acoustic point of view.





The 12th of February, Carsten Stabenow, founder of Tuned City, will briefly introduce the project and will give an outlook on the plans for Brussels. Dr. Lamberto Tronchin, Professor in Environmental Physics from the University of Bologna, recognised internationally as a leading authority on the subject of sound and acoustics and a pianist himself, will open the evening with a lecture about one of the most inspiring thinkers of sound and space in the 17th century, Athanasius Kircher. The Belgian architect and urban planner Luc Deleu, questions with his utopian projects the role of architecture and urbanism in the modern age, their position and duty in a global society and opens with his visions new perspectives of thinking architecture. Ariane Wilson, architect and art historian at the RWTH Aachen focussed her research on the role of sound in city and architecture and will give an overview about the current developments in that field.

Artistic intervention: Justin Bennett.



Free entrance but reservation preferable.
