The bEAST

Fri 18 Jun 2021 - 12:00 to Mon 21 Jun 2021 - 15:00
Leopoldpark Brussel, ,

From 18 to 21 June, The Beast is released in the Leopold Park. At the invitation of some professional musicians, visitors can challenge, tame and even make dance to this mobile installation, a giant DIY instrument. Play The Beast with all kinds of materials, drum sticks and bows and create - alone or in a group - a surprising soundscape. Spanish-Belgian composer Saskia Venegas Aernouts takes this soundscape as the starting point for a new composition for violin (Bert Van Laethem), piano (Maarten Lingier) and visitors to the Leopold Park.
