Walden Festival 2022: imaginaria

Walden Festival 2022: imaginaria

During Walden Festival 2022, Musica and Amadeo Kollectif present the ‘installative sound space‘ imaginaria. On 17 July from 12 pm, the Brussels Leopold Park will be transformed into an open musical space. No fewer than 9 large sound sculptures are set up here, from percussion to string and air instruments.

These quirky, artful sculptures were conceived by Amadeo Kollectif. As interactive installations, they stimulate the imagination and invite children, young people and adults to experiment with sound and music.

All visitors are welcome to strum, pluck and blow all afternoon. Are you curious to hear these works of art played in full regalia? Make sure to attend one of the two performances where Amadeo’s Fujinn Open Orchestra uses the instruments to perform an enchanting mix of classical, jazz and world music. There are also two stimulating workshops where you learn to play the instruments under supervision.

There are also two stimulating workshops prior to the festival (13-14-15 July) where you learn to play the instruments under the guidance of the professional musicians of the Fujinn Open Orchestra and Musica.

Register for the workshop here.
