The backbone of the festival is a 3-day expo route featuring indoor and outdoor sound art, with 18 national and international artists exhibiting their work at CC Palethe (from 1 October), and the site of the Provincial Domain Dommelhof (21 to 23 October).

Some names are already confirmed:

  • Pak Yan Lau - (t)ears: The festival opens with the premiere of this self-built installation, in which the broad sound spectrum of tears is expressed through the media of glass and water. Lau will perform the work herself, and invites visitors to let themselves be carried away by this audiovisual reflection of an outer as well as an inner world.
  • Marco Barotti - Moss: a kinetic sound sculpture powered by data from the 'World Air Quality Index' that measures air quality around the world. For 'Moss', Barotti processes this data into a living, constantly changing soundscape.
  • Matteo Marangoni and Dieter Vandoren - Komorebi: a swarm of artificial creatures makes music in response to the sun, the clouds and the shadows of windswept trees.
  • Cathy Van Eck - Try to Turn the Wind: this installation invites visitors to exact an audible and tangible change in the weather using their breath. This artificial interaction between sound and air demonstrates how our human actions can cause major changes, often leading to an unstable system.
