Collectief Publiek Geluid (BE)

forest studies (2018)

20 October ━ 18.00
Klankenbos, Toekomstlaan 5, 3910 Neerpelt

This group of young makers, musicians and sound artists, shows up again in familiar environment. With ongoing installations and forest concerts, they are probably the most striking company of the festival.

As well as having a collection of sound art, Klankenbos is also a laboratory for musical creation in the open air. In fact it is one big, natural stage made of sand, branches and wind. Especially for OORtreders Festival, the young makers of the Collectief Publiek Geluid have created short performances and ongoing installations especially for the forest. They are working on a series of studies, ‘études’ with which they investigate the acoustic and musical qualities of a place. 

Klankenbos by night awaits you, full of musical surprises such as a whistling concert, a performance of interference on radios and a musical ensemble conducted with light.

Collectief Publiek Geluid is a group of young, upcoming musicians and sound artists who will focus on creating music in public spaces over the coming years. Through the years, they are working on a ‘repertoire’ or ‘canon’ of performable works, such as city tunes, composed soundscapes and walks, for all kinds of public spaces. Collectief Publiek Geluid is een initiatief van C-TAKT en Musica, Impulscentre for Music.
