SoundMine 2022

SoundMine 2022

Every year, Musica organizes the SoundMine composition internship, in collaboration with HERMESensemble and Center Henri Pousseur. In the beautiful surroundings of Grand Commandery Alden Biesen, a group of young composers receives expert coaching for a week to fully develop their compositional qualities. The exploration of new styles and experiments with improvisation and notation are strongly encouraged. From this year onwards, the internship will also focus on the crossover between acoustic instruments and electronics.

This year’s coaches are Wim Henderickx and Diederik Glorieux for composition, and Gilles Doneux and Jorrit Tamminga for electronics.

And there is more: thanks to partnerships with the youth orchestra JOWest and the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, the composers can experience live rehearsals and a performance of their own work. Ultimately, the entire week will be devoted to a showcase where all compositions will be performed.

Would you like to attend this performance (8 July from 1 to 3 pm)?
Book your place here, as admission is limited.

SoundMine 2022 is organised by Musica Impulse Centre in partnership with Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, JOWest, HERMESensemble, Centre Henri Pousseur and Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, with the support of the Flemish Government.
